GEC 6AS7G only show up on ebay once every half year. I have been the pu*k that out bid everyone for pass year and half. Proud of it!
|If you want take your WA22 to next level 6F8G is the key, as start now EML began to show weakness|
|I tried all the tubes above, notice there is something missing with EML, the "Impact". I listen to rock, so bass is important. All other tubes in the test kick hard, EML now shows its mellow botton end. the hight and mid just fine as with Brimar, but now from mid bass down just went soft, no balls.
The best match for this test is with Mullard CV378/53KU. It rocks as hard as other tube, at same time lost 2% of soundstage and air compare with EML. I think 53KU is more balanced.
|Correction: I misjudged the 53KU/CV378. that was a mistake I shound not use different CD to do the review, and should use old CD that I have listend 100+ times. They are not as good as once I put old CD in. I am very sorry about this, because WA22 sound so good, I often easily lost in the music. Still Mullard GZ34 offfers most impact, but sound cool, user beware. 5AS4 still hanging on good.
I ordered 5Z3 made in Italy, that is going be fun.
6F8G and 6FG7/6FQ7 I have used for long, the review is very accurate, do not worry.
