The d7100 is my track meet camera and with the 1. 3 crop I got 600MM on the pirme lens. if I had to buy the 600mM prime for my d610 it would be 10K just for that lens. If I want to buy the D4S I could right now with what in my  toy budget . But restraining but thinking real ahrd about the D4S except it wont do 600MM with my 300MM lens.

Thansk for all the interest in the tubes. They are all sold now need to keep  resisting the Nikon D4S

So, how about driver/power tubes that pair up well with the GZ32?  Don't want to go down the 6SN7 path until I hear back from my email, would prefer not to pop my amp.  Most don't seem to care much for the 6GL7 from what I can tell, so what is the general consensus?  Do the driver tubes typically affect the sound as much as rectifiers?

My experience is that the driver tubes affect the sound the most, then rectifier and finally power. Ymmv

Not on the WA2 they don't in fact it's Power then Driver then Rectifier for WA2.

Same trend, sans rectifier, in my WA3.  Power tube has by far the most effect.

Frank, question for you:  having listened to both the WA5 and the Mono 234, how would they compare SQ wise given equal tubes (e.g. 6SN7/ 300B)?  I'm wondering if the Mono 234, for the price premium, is just giving output tube options.

X2, but keep in mind that you will want to do all three to get the most from the WA2 (it's worth it in the end!)
