post #38431 of 38444

I bought these:Siemens NOS triple mica rebranded PHILIPS SQ E82CC 1969. Hope they FIT? I am all new to this. I have ZERO idea what I am doing. I am thankful for all your info and advice. Would you believe it I am just walking out to buy connection cable and a power cord.

Woo WA22-SE Instagram photo.

 

Looks like it is using TSRP's as drivers. Also looks like some weird writing on the side of the controls plus a new power light.

Not sure if I like that style of marking (on the knob) better than craving out the text on the front panel.

I'm using Sylvania 6BL7's. I really like them.

 

I would still like to know how they get 10 watts out of those tubes. Something fishy is going on here. Is it a hybrid and the tubes are a pre-amp?????

You can get 10 watts out of one 6BL7 in push pull.

I still have a amp I built when I was a child 11 watts  6SL7>6SN7>6BL7.

Are you sure those tubes tubes aren't 6K6 or 6V6 much more power out of pentodes.

Maybe. Nothing has been confirmed. Although one member sighted it at the meet. There was no comment on the power tubes used.

Yes, and they sound terrific.  Definitely in the top 5 300B tubes for the WA5 (any version).  Maybe the best bang for the buck tube as well.

Yes, my original tube upgrade when I bought my WA-LE 5 years ago were EML 300B Mesh tubes and they are still going strong.

596 rectifier and c3g have a very nice synergy/clarity/warmth.

All the combinations I tried in my WA5-LE I though the c3g was a little in the lean side. I have the 596. I will try this combo.

I find this the best so far in adding a little more body/warmth.
