post #29881 of 30962

Just pressed 'go' on a black WA6SE, so I guess that means I'm shortly to be a member of this club. A tube novice, so this is is an exciting adventure, and I must not think about my wallet for a while!

 

Went for the EML 5U4G and 6FD7 options, which I hope is going to give me a good start. Not sure I'm really into tube rolling, so I think I want a stable set up that will last.

 

Anyway, now for the wait... :wink_face:

I did the same thing about a week ago.  I went stock with the tubes until I get a feel for the sounds then will replace based on how they sound with the different types of music, plus the headphones.  Pulled the plug on the black WA6-SE to go with the black AD's that should show around the same time.

 

My wallet left me a note last week, was just a picture of a middle finger inside.  He hasn't been seen or heard from since.

Well I will start testing it out next Wednesday, it shipped this morning.  Only downside is, the headphones meant for it ain't here yet and haven't shipped.  Using the P7s just won't be worthy of it, won't stop me though.

I'm not sure if this topic has been touched on in this thread but I was wondering if anyone of you out there have had the Schiit Valhalla or heard it and what do you think compared with the WA6SE. I'm trying to decide on which one I want to get but I can't really seem to find a straight answer anywhere. Thank you.

WA6-SE far way better amp.

I think...:rolleyes:

These are 2 completely different animals. The valhalla is an entry level OTL suitable for high impedance phones. The WA6SE has hi and low impedance output taps. I believe you can now roll some tubes on the valhalla. Whereas the output/rectifier tube combinations on the Woo are endless and have pretty dramatic changes on the sound.  Even comparing the WA6SE to the Woo OTL's would be comparing apples to oranges.
