I'm thinking about putting the WA6 up for BIN $100,000.00.

Do you think I'll get that much!

Maybe, yeah... Should try PM him and ask for US70 and watch his reaction to find out

Dear joedoemusic,

Possibly best specs of any amplifier ever made.

More importantly the sound.

Best regards,

well he does offer free shipping, and its covered by ebay's money back guarantee !!

It can't be more than $100 in parts. What an idiot. But if someone buys I'm building one and selling it for $30k.

Make it $10K! People will pay cash for that if the buyer is close to your area xD

i think i might have to try and build this. for all we know it might actually be the most transparent and proper amp that will ever exist.

That is for the schematics, not the amp...

It would be interesting to se the schematics and calculate the build cost and difficulty...

Can't happen, tubes are automatically out for 'most transparent'. They may sound better in some situations though...

i only have a couple hours on the new rs1's so i won't say much, other than there is quite a big difference in sound from them to the sr80, more than i thought there may be

 

what i can say with easy confidence, is even with a short time using them i can tell that these are almost exactly what i was hoping they would be.  and they're super comfy thanks to the not-flat pads (these are the bowls, right?), more of an over-ear fit than on-ear.  oh, and they look fantastic!

Yes, the RS1i's come with (L) cushions/bowls, and they are amazing sounding, enjoy!!!

I agree, I listen to the RS1i's with my new WA6-S/P rectifier tube and 6SN7WGT power/driver tubes and Meridian-203D/A, and it really dies sound incredible, its like nothing I've ever heard before! 

Good luck in finding another pair for yourself.

all this talk of rs1i's has me missing mine, its still out on loan, i was able to work a deal where i'm keeping the HE-5LE, and i didn't have to give up the rs1

until the rs1 comes home, i'll have plenty of time to get to know the gs1000i better, it, like the rs1 just keeps getting better

I would love to hear the GS1Ki compared to the RS1i, but I'm very afraid I will keep them both, and I'm very impressed with the RS1i's and the WA6 right now so I want to enjoy this combo without being side tracked, or all over the place with decisions. I'm sure you know what I mean!

post #11445 of 18053
While I'm finding the rs1 quite different than the sr80, they are still grado through and through....so I'm gonna stick with the idea that the gs/ps must be the same thing therefore I don't need them

LOL and sorry to my wallet in advance
