Horns of a Dilemma (WA6)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Okay, Guys, here's the dealio;

Got a chance at a WA6 with the Blackgate parts upgrade and the Pseudo Dual Power supply upgrade done, early 2010-ish.

It has the Sophia on.

 

Roughly the same cost as I would pay for a brand spankin' new WA6 with the Sophia and the 7n7's added to the package. Woo doesn't offer the previously mentioned build upgrades any longer.

 

So.

Which purchase should I make? 

Is it smarter to get new from Woo, warranty and all, or go with a somewhat older, yet upgraded WA6?

I think that the build of the WA6 itself has not changed for a couple or 3 years....

 

This would be used for Senn 600 and 650 especially, so the sound sig is correct.

 

ADVICE PLEASE!

Get the new WA6.  Then, look into the USAF-596 rectifier and socket adapter.  That will lead to better results than parts upgrades.  I'm not a big believer in premium parts upgrades, but I am in tubes.  And I've read the 596 is better than Miss Sophia.

Tubes are going to make a far bigger difference than the parts upgrades.  Go with the new WA6 and the 596 rectifier that Jay mentioned.  In my opinion, Woo amps really shine when paired with a neutral source and HD6x0's, so you're in for a treat.

Advice taken, most appreciated... THANK YOU!

Source for the USAG-596 rectifier and socket adaptor?

 

Of course I have plenty of time for some shopping, as it will be a few weeks before arrival and burn in is completed....

CHEERS!
