Thanks.  It's an awfully nice station for my 325i's.

Received the WA6/6SN7 adapters this morning!

This afternoon I packed the 6-SE with all original content from Woo + a NOS Mullard GZ34 and NOS GE 6FD7's/NOS Syvania 6DR7's.

Afterwards I unpacked my WA6 and put the wood side panels/tube plate/aluminum bezels, and this time took off the aluminum transformer cover and just used the wood cover for a lower/sleeker look…then popped in the 596/NOS 1962 6SN7WGTA's and have been burning-in/listening with the RS1i's for about 4hrs, and I'm so glad to have my old set-up back…just can't wait to pass the 200hr mark for it too really shine like my previous one.

 

I will be listing my less than 2 month old 6-SE in 10/10 condition with about 60-80hrs on it, and the tubes mentioned above which all have about 30-40hrs on them, on the F/S Forum for a few days…if I don't get any replies I will put it up for bids on eBay. If anyone is interested before it goes to eBay, send me a PM. Here are some photos.

I just got the Woo 6SN7 > 6DE7 adaptors and some stock Raytheon 6SN7 GTB tubes for my WA6. Just letting it run and break in.

Any recommendations for some kick butt 6SN7 tubes.. Sound stage with the HD800 is huge with spectrum nicely balanced and fabulous details and highs.  Just looking for a little more kick join the bass. (may get that as the new tubes break in.. we'll see :)

MickeyVee, you should investigate this tube. I'm using them in my WA6 with the 596 rectifier tube. The Sophia Electric 6SN7's. Great combination! Be aware though that the SE 6SN7's if used with the S/P rectifier tube produces a very muddy sound.

Yup, on my list.  Thanks for the heads up on the S/P rectifier as that's what I'm using right now.  Also have a new Mullard rectifier that's pretty nice (better than the stock one I got with my WA6)  but probably not as good as the original NOS Mullards.

Also check out some 5692 NOS Red Base tubes (6SN7 family), there are a few up for bids on eBay right now.

Also the NOS Sylvania 6SN7WGTA's are very nice.

Does anyone have any recommendations for tubes that provide a more neutral sound with a very good sound stage?  For the WA6-SE that is, it's supposed to be on the bright side and I'd like to change that.  I guess you could say I want to make it sound closer to the WA7, but I want the power of the WA6-SE.
