OK, I get it. We in Scotland would willingly sell you some if you want. There's rarely a day goes by that it doesn't rain at some point.

You have yourself a deal, kind sir. We will take all that anyone is able to spare. We have been in "Exceptional" drought (not sure why exceptional is worse than "Extreme" but it is...) for about four years.

What qualifies as exceptional? I remember a whole week once without rain. I think the crime rate went up, lol.

If someone wants to send me a pair of Royal Princess 300B tubes to try out until I die that would be great too.

I had no idea a 300B would fit in a WA6, even with an adaptor.  Are you sure?

No I'm not sure, that's why I asked if anyone knew anything about the Sophia Electric 300B tubes. I checked and I did mention in my email that I was using a Woo Audio WA6.

According to the Woo Tube Compatibility Chart, the 300B is for the WA5/5LE, as far as it looks to me;

I forget what amp punit has, but I believe he has a WA6, (I could be wrong), because I though I once asked him how the WA6 sounded with all Sophia's running in it, and he said you will get the widest sound stage with them, so maybe he'll chime in.

My mistake...punit and I were talking about the Sophia 6SN7's, not the 300B, sorry.

Yeah, Sue at Sophia Electric might profit from a little homework as regards Woo.  The WA6 needs dual triodes in the driver/power section (the 300B can't be one) and the 300B is certainly not a rectifier tube.  Try to visualize two 300B's in the front of a WA6.  Hilarious.

Rewired my Grados to 3.5mm today, check it out!

 

Made a full album with a guide too, if you guys wanna check it out. Next step, detachable cable! :)

All I know is I'm glad that I don't have to buy the $1K a pair Sophia Electric 300B tubes yet. I'll wait until I can afford a WA5. From my reading of the Woo compatibility chart it looks like the WA6 will take the Sophia 6SN7 power tubes with an adapter. At only $200.00 a pair they're a much more affordable power tube option.

You just refreshed my memory…this is what I asked punit about, the Sophia 6SN7's, thanks.

x2...  I've been listening to a lot of ZZ top the last couple days.  The RS1/2 are the only cans that  get Billy Gibbons guitar tone right... everything else is a synthetic reproduction.

Just because someone in this thread might appreciate it:

 

I received a secondhand pair of EarSonics SM64s this week, and much like the Sony 7506 is IMO, the closest closed can to a Grado, these are the closest thing I've heard in IEM form. They're remarkably similar the RS1. Rich mids, thumping bass, detailed yet non-fatiguing treble and the best soundstage I've ever heard from an in-ear. For anyone looking for a Grado in IEM form, this is it! (Granted I've never heard the GR8 or GR10...)

 

Also, this album was made for Grados!
