Woo doesn't make cables, so the entire discussion is moot for the sake of this thread.

Thanks. Didn't know that. I'm sure there's some new-people-read-this-first thread that I bypassed. ;)

Good thread on the Tak 300Bs:

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/571323/takatsuki-electric-ta-300b

 

But the most interesting part was learning that there existed a NOS competitor to the WE 300B, called the STC 4300B and made in England. Apparently it's far rarer and supposedly sounds even better. Somebody on that thread was able to get one but none appear to be for sale now anywhere.

Guys, I'm almost done with my mega comparative review of the Eddie Current 4-45 and Woo WA5, with specific references to tracks, tubes used etc. Stay tuned.

Looking forward to your comparison, EC 445 is on my radar..

Hi. I have done a detailed shootout for the Woo WA5 and the EC 4-45. If you are interested please see the following thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/740466/epic-woo-wa5-eddie-current-4-45-shootout

From my experience in the Head-Fi journey, make do with what you have. So start modding your HD800 and get a HE-6 now! 

 

Besides, I will be missing the euphony of the WA5 and ironically, the emotion conveyed by the mass of strings sounding like its one man playing. The WA5 is really special.

I did a massive session on my WA22 last night. 10PM to 5.30AM. Figured I better get off as it was close to the eight hours use. Just got three hours sleep and now I'm back on listening to some Steely Dan. smily_headphones1.gif

I'm having way too much Woo-hoo fun.

Haha.. I'm doing similar thing, although I can't stay up that much anymore, getting old.  I'm live burning in the amp.  Think this will be my tube configuration for a while, SERPs + TG BGRP + Mullar CV593:

post #31361 of 31365

Well I listen to speaker 90% anyway these days so it probably better I have WA 5.  My speaker is inefficient and going to need every watt the amp could afford.  Even then, I would probably said I prefer the EC 45 sound if what you describe is true.

The RK60s are nice. I got mine, plus adapters, from a guy on eBay, who still has some for sale.
