Ever since I got into the headfi hobby I've always been curious about tube amps and what this magical sound is that they deliver. I've been threw several amps before I finally realized my "dream" solid state amp with the Solo SRG, mind you I aint saying the best there is but I feel pretty comfortable stopping at that point as far solid state amps are concerned. In fact I am quite happy with what I hear out of it but I finally feel like the time has in fact arrived to try out something tube based and like the SRG I've always had my eye on the Woo Audio 6. Maybe I have a thing for amps in silver I don't really know...lol! I use several different headphones at the moment because I like hearing a different presentation and I ain't looking for a jack of all trades headphone so with that being said I use the HD600, K701 and SR225s with all of them sounding great from my SRG. My question is what should I expect to come out of these cans from this amp? I'm not really looking at this as an upgrade although some may feel it is but I really just want to get a taste of the tube amp craze that seems to be going on here and always has been. I can't say for sure at the moment but I really doubt I will be upgrading anything on it if I do purchase one. Most of my equipment has been purchased over a very long time so it will probably stay in completely original configuration which would be just the plain Woo 6. So with that big long story what can I expect out of it? Will I still be getting all the microdetails and all of that jazz I so enjoy from my SRG or am I going to be blown away by a level of warmth I've never heard from an amp? Anybody care to drop their two cents feel free!
