Woo Audio Amp Owner Unite - Page 1970

post #29536 of 39169

Oops, I accidentally created a new thread, but I meant to post here.

 

 

Hi, I bought my WA22 from Dubstep Girl last year. It was the unit owned by JC9394 with the following mods.

 

1/ BlackGate NH 220uf/160V x 6

2/ RMG 470Ω resistor X 2

3/ RMG 220KΩ resistors X 4

4/ V-Cap CuTF 0.22uf/300V X 4

5/ BlackGate NH 150uf/350 x 3

6/ Mills MR-200 30.1k resistors x 4

7/ Gold plated Japan made selector 8/ Mundrof Silver Gold 0.5mm &1mm cable

 

I really love the Woo sound and the WA22/HD800 has been a blast for extended listening sessions. I just haven't been able to use is as much as I thought I would so I am going to put it up for sale on eBay. I thought I would check to see if anyone here was interested before I posted it. Looking for $1800.

 

Thanks, Tom

I'm guessing no one needs to ask what my go-to rec was for the WooAudio WA 6 Special Edition...:rolleyes:

The best combo I think with WA6 is Mullard GZ34 with 6FD7.

I just tried to buy a 6FD7 from Vacuum Tubes, and they are out of stock.

I would like to try this tube though.

 

Are you talking about the same GZ34 that I ordered today?

Yes, I think the metal based one us too expensive for WA6. If you are using WA22, I will say go for it. IMHO, I do not want the tubes are more expensive than the amp.

Thats pretty much how I feel about spending that much on the metal base tube.

The WA6 cost almost 800 USD from my local distributor, so it's actually rather hard to find a tube that's more expensive than the amp :D

I meant the tubes combo the amp needed.  That is pretty easy, here is one combo.

Ahhh. Dang, that's almost 2x the price of the amp.

:thumb: Hey that's the tube complement I bought for my Woo - Pair VT-231 TS-BGRPs 1944. Maybe I should sell 'em...

I do not think the link you've posted is exhaustive of all the 300Bs that will work in the WA5. AVVT claimed that the VV32 will work in any 300B amp. If no one knows I will email Jack to verify, thanks.
