Can a "faulty" recitifer cause balance problems? Meaning right side has more sound then left?

Doubt it. Rectifier should supply the same to both sides, should affect both. Decent RCA cable? Badly shielded cable can pick up RF interference.

I have Beyer T90's & WA6, with Sophia 274B + 6FD7. I wanted a slightly warmer sound (without affecting the bass), with smoother highs.  I was considering the 6EW7 or 6GL7.

 

Has anyone tried any of these two tubes with T90 or T1 ?

post #1024 of 1616

maybe a WA2 would be a better option for that. 

 

you can try 6ew7 though, its warmer than 6fd7.

The only reason I didn't buy the WA2 is bcos I have other low impd HP's.

Ordered 6EW7's, wanted to buy a pair of socket savers for the WA6 so I don't damage them by regular tube rolling, will these fit ? :

Has anyone tried LCD-X?

 

I'm thinking about getting one (the phones) and need to know whether it plays well with WA6Se.

Congrats!  WA6 all the way.

So I picked up a WA6 recently, just arrived today. Came with the stock tubes as well as a pair of Pinnacle 6DR7 and Raytheon 5U4GB. 

I knew this thing was heavy, but I was still surprised when I actually had it in my hands haha

 

Using the stock rectifier with the 6DR7s right now, gonna sit down for an extended session here in a bit!

Not only do they sound great, the build is amazing.  Definitely get your money's worth.

 

Congrats.
