Amazing gear.

 

On the WA22 I see you have installed the RCA Greyglass drivers (my favorite drivers). Is that the standard rectifier and the GE power tubes?

Hi Badas,

Thank you.   Much appreciated.

 

Yes they are the stock rectifier and power tubes that came with the amp.    

 

I also have the following tubes for the WA22 ;

 

A pair of factory matched 6SN7 SHUGUANG "Treasure Series" CV181=Z (Cost over £200)

A Pair of RCA smoke glass 6SN7GT VT231

A Pair of Zalytron 6SN7 GTB

 

Emission Labs EML 5U4G-Mesh rectifier (Cost over £250)

Electron Tube 274B rectifier

 

A pair of Tong-sol 7236

Two Sovtek 6AS7G

Pair of GE 6080WC

 

I am currently using the SHUGANG Treasures, EML 5U4G and Tong-sol 7236's.   Big improvement over the stock tubes !   The HD650's have never sounded better !

Yeah, I have wide range of tubes for different combinations as well. The Tong-sol 7236 is a amazing tube. I respect it's power and speed. However I didn't find it romantic enough. Have you tried many 6AS7G's other than the Sovtek? I have had a lot of fun with Raytheon, Tong-sol, Sylvania and Chatham versions. Very nice. Using Raytheon at the moment. Avoid RCA they sound good but noisy.

Thank you for the tips Badas.  Much appreciated. 

 

I only acquired the WA22 last weekend.  It was a private sale deal off e-bay.  As most of that weekend was taken up with family members I hadn't seen for some time and acquiring a second hand Keith Monks RCM and working away during the week have only had a few hours with it.   The previous Owner said he liked these upgraded tubes the best and as we have similar music genre tastes I thought I would try these tubes first.

Great news.  

 

I have Focal Electra 1038 Be's which sound amazing with the Choral system.

 

 

Yes the QBD76 is an amazing DAC.    I like it so much I bought two one for my speaker system in Spain and one for my headphone systems in the UK. 

 

I also have the Chord Chordette Qute DAC which is also great and synergises very well with the Woo WA3 and WA 6 SE.
