I bought it used, at much lower price than a new one.

Just bought a U.S. army Raytheon Tube Type RK60 for my Woo WA6SE. Could you tell me where I can find an adapter to fit since the pins are not the same size as the originals

 

Gear is: MacBook Pro-Bifrost-WA6SE-HD800-Momentum full size

I've just received my WA5-LE (maxed), not even unpacked yet!  This is the first valve/tube amp I've purchased in 25 years.  So what's considered best practice for burning in tube amps now?

 

What's the maximum run time?  Does significant variations in volume matter?  I was planning on using the cheap tubes that come with the WA5-LE to run it in and then swap to the best tubes, is this the right way to go?

Congrats!! I recall Jack's advise is not running continuously over 8 hours.

Since tubes will expire to meet their maker in less than 10,000 hrs (sometimes much less) I suppose that is right. It is probably time to shop for premium tubes!

Congratulations!  We would love to see some pics when you're ready.   :)

HiFiGuy528 Can you confirm this is correct ? If yes then can you elaborate why ? All  amp manufacturers that I have purchased from (A GD, Schiit, Meier, Bottlehead etc.) have confirmed that there is no problem leaving their amps on for 2-3 days.

 

Also did you work for Sony before ? You have almost all their HP's ?

How exciting! I remember that feeling. Congratulations. Yes, they recommend only 8 hour runs. The amps get a little toasty after time on.
