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

    These United 596 Rectifiers are my favourite Rectifiers for my Woo WA5-LE. I have multiple pairs as back ups. I prefer them to EML 5U4G's and the EML's are great tubes.

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

    This is dealt with in other posts. However my take on the WA-6, original version was not positive. The amp, even with tubes that cost more than the amp had frequency range and detail limitations. I would go with the WA6SE original version over the WA6. The benefits of a separate power supply...

    I’ve finally been able to get my dedicated audio room back. My wife decided that my gear was not the decor statement she wanted. I’ve gone from headphones only to 2 channel plus phones. This is still a work in progress. Mainly PS Audio gear BHK 300 Mono’s, Directstream DAC, Perfectwave...

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

    The tubes that I use are Tung Sol 6F8G's with an adapter. They have the identical structure to 6SN7 Round Plates for less than half the price. They have been in my system for a year and I just have no desire to change them out. There are 6SN7 threads here that review the various tubes with...

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

    Woo can give you a list of compatible tubes. Your first problem is 13DE7's the first numbers designate the voltage so 13 volts. With a 6SN7 you have 6 volts. They are incompatible with out modifications. This is one reason why the earlier WA6's were popular. They had a greater range of...

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

    The good thing about WA6's is the range of tubes that you can use, with and without adapters. Quality tubes like 6SN7's are plentiful and provide immediate sonic benefits. The rectifier will affect the sound but to a lesser extent. It would be easy to exceed the value of the amp in tubes, so...

    Woo Audio Amp Owner Unite

    The balloon 300B is a visual variation. The internals are usually the same as a corresponding 300B from the same manufacturer. I have EML 520B V3 (Incredible Sound and Power and a huge tube 8.5 inches from base to top ), EML 300B-XLS (Very Similar to the 520B V3 In sound), EML 300B Mesh (My...
