    Woo WA2 Tube Rolling Recommendations

    Flisker, I think you will like those Tellies. I'm running the same in my WA2. Well, TFK EZ80 instead of EZ81...but I believe they are interchangeable. Enjoy! Oh, and anything Bill recommends...just buy it. :thumbsup:

    What headphones work best with the WA2

    After all these years, I'm still loving my WA2 with HD800's. IMO, it's as good as it gets.

    Whisky (or Whiskey) Fi

    This old thread needs to be revived! Drink up, boys. Really starting to get more and more into Bourbon as my scotch bottles are getting dusty. I'm loving Woodford Reserve at $30, excellent neat daily drinker and found everywhere. When I want to kick it up a notch, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is...

    Whisky (or Whiskey) Fi

    I'm mainly a scotch guy, but my bourbon-drinking friends really enjoy Buffalo Trace. Reasonably priced and made by the same folks that own Pappy Van Winkle, I believe. Cheers!

    I'm using the Volsund and love it. I haven't heard the Draug yet so I can't compare, sorry.

    TK, can you paint on monograms...or maybe the Red Hot Chili Peppers logo? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I'm guessing BangyBang is reading this idea and thinking about being able to upgrade to a nice, thick Berber carpet.

    @nwavesailor Glad to see that you made it over here! The Ether2 are 16ohms, correct? What amp are you running now? Please tell us about the rest of your rig, so we can help you spend your money ;)

    I'm pretty sure that I bought a pair of Visseaux 6J5G from you a few years back. Thanks again, I'm still running them in a Toolshed SET 2-channel vinyl rig. Before I suggest a killer tube amp...what headphones do you own?

    Not your fault, bro. They ARE killer tubes. I'm the one that got suspicious and starting throwing rocks at the hornets nest.

    @AC My research is suggesting TFK and Siemens borrowed inventory from each other during material shortages. Is it even feasible to think I may have TFK "innards" inside a seamed S&H glass envelope? BTW, still burning in but it sounds very, very close to my other 801's.

    Yes Sir...a very large sound stage, both in width and depth. Instruments easily located in space. Lots of detail and resolution. That’s how I hear the 801s, not sure what Bill hears. He’s old. ;)

    And I might want to add that I have the same Woo WA2 that Bill is running. Those ECC801S sound glorious to me, funny paint or not.

    I wasn’t home to sign for the FedEx package today, so it will be tomorrow before I have my 801s in hand. Interesting story...I bought my second pair of 801s from Euroklang in Germany. Tubes arrived, both with permanent paint made to look smudged and one tube missing the diamond from the...

    Guys, I hear what Bill hears with the ECC801S. I trust his ears, he hasn’t steered me wrong yet. Those tubes are the best I have heard to date. My backup pair of Tellie 801S have also shipped from India. I hope whoever bought pair#19 just before I did, enjoys them :p
