Woo Audio WA6 + WA6SE: Tubes, Comments, Pictures, and Advice - Page 62

post #916 of 1600

i like HD 600/650 out of WA6/WA6-SE more than WA2, the WA2 makes them too slow and lush

Does anyone have any idea what brand 6FD7s these are? They didnt come in their original boxes. Really brings out the bass presence over the 6DR7

Agree with you. Tried this combination and I think the sound is too smooth, to the point where I think it's boring. WA6Se seems to add more punch to these relatively dark cans. HD800, on the other hand, seems to match better with WA2. I think HD800 is too bright and brittle with WA6Se.

Those look like RCA to me.

My current desktop headphone rig, any suggestions for tube rolling options will be readily welcomed. Currently using RCA 6FD7s and Sophia Princess

Don't get me wrong and I do like BLACK but I think a better DAC will have more impact than tube rolling.

I highly doubt that, the DacMagic 100 isn't that bad of a dac I mean its not like im using something thats very low end, i just can't really justify spending a grand on a dac, also to my ears I couldn't tell the difference between the DacMagic100 and my friends grace design m903. You are bound to notice more audible differences rolling tubes...

That's a sweet combination.  I did replace the Sophia with a 596, requires an adaptor, and that seems a little better but you're pretty close to ideal, IMO.  I'm also not sure throwing money at a more expensive dac would solve much.  I'm happy with my DacIT.

Yeah I really want to try the 596 but i have no idea were to source the adapter from, nor find the tube frown.gif

Yeah im starting to feel as though its impossible to obtain the 596. I've been looking everywhere.

I just tried my denon d2000s for the first time in a while to listen to some hip hop, tried them on the wa6 expecting them to sound poor and distorted because of the high output impedance of the amp but man I am shocked. With the 6FD7 and Princess the bass presence is incredible and it just seems to be so dynamic and clear, I wouldn't have expected these to sound so good out of a tube amp. My guess is the higher end denon/fostex models pair this well too?

As DG said, there's a seller on eBay that pops up once in awhile

 

for the adapter, I got mine from Woo Audio themselves, perhaps try shoot them an email if there is stock available.

I was looking on ebay for 6dr7's and saw that there are triodes and pentodes. 

What should I be looking for ? I have a wa6se. thanks

T1's. thanks
