I'd be interested in your impressions.

I have a question for WA6 owners: Does anyone know if they stopped having a pre-amp option? I noticed that some earlier WA6s have a pre-amp option, but this doesn't seem to be an option anymore. Does anyone know when this stopped or if I could get a WA6 with a pre-amp output without buying used (not that I mind buying used, but I just don't think there are too many of them).

Great!  I envy all fun.

 

I know you won't believe this but the Shuggie 274B in combination with the RCA/GE 6FD7s is really quite good.  But, I'm only running 880s 600 ohms.  It takes so little to make me happy.  Just waiting on the adaptor for the mighty you know what.dt880smile.png

Yep, seems like it's an option for $130 more. Not a small amount of money, but it sounds fair.

 

For those of you who've heard it though, would the WA6 be an upgrade over the Gilmore Lite that I currently have? I don't think I'd keep both amps and I'm very interested in tubes, but I'd like to know if the WA6 would be worth ~$800. I'll be using the HD600 and AD2000s. (and yes, I do know that this is a WA6 thread and that there'll likely be biases)

It arrived!  Now, its down to the music and I have a feeling its going to be a late night!  The only issue is that as this is my first valve amp it is somewhat noticeable and I have failed to warn the better half that I ordered it...... maybe she wont notice..... atsmile.gif

Just got the 6SN7 from reeltime, paired it with the sophia. So far it sounds very close to the stock 6DE7, but everything seems a bit tighter, more accurate and slightly fuller. So far liking it very much...

Nice HD650 cables! biggrin.gif

 

And is that a V-DAC? If so, then that's almost the exact set-up that I'm hoping to get.

BTG Audio cable and V-DAC II with upgraded PSU. 

 

Thx
