post #30826 of 30827

Nice! :tongue_smile:

 

I found the driver tubes supplied by Woo underwhelming (YMMV). There are better deals to be done out there for both NOS and new production driver tubes. The teflon adapters, however, are very nice.

 

New production tubes can cop a lot of flack here at HeadFi and elsewhere, but I am having a lot of fun tube rolling with them and getting some very good results.

Pretty much agree with you here but with the WA6 (non-SE)

Love the SP 274B and for me, best paired with either the stock Westinghouse 6DR7 but am now enjoying it with JAN Sylvania 6SN7 WGTA with the Woo adaptors.

Tube compliment in your pics looks exactly what I have in my WA6 ;)

Actually, out of 4 sets of 6DE7 (or comparable tubes), I have, I found the stock ones the best so I went the Woo stock 6SN7 adaptor/tube set.  Not impressed until I got some Sylvania 6SN7's.
