    The Woo Audio 2

    Many thanks to Billerb1 for turning me on to the RFT EZ81 foils. :trophy: My rig has NEVER sounded better! Currently I'm running: Rectifier tubes: RFT EZ81 foil getters Power tubes: Tung-Sol 5998 Driver tubes: Telefunken ECC801S w/adapters

    The Reference 6J5 Thread (L63, 6C5, 12J5, 6P5, etc.)

    Good thing for burn-in. The NOS GEC L63 upper treble is starting to mellow at 20 hours. Treble is now down to 6J5G Visseaux territory but with more detail. Nice!

    @James824 Happy for you! Yes, the WA2 and HD800 is a perfect match that only gets better as you upgrade the tubes. My rig sounds best with bourbon, as well. :wink: Cheers, JC

    What headphones work best with the WA2

    My WA2 also likes the 'funkens. I'm running TS 5998's, TFK EZ80's and TFK ECC801S, (12AT7's) via adapters. It's the best tube pairing I've been able to find.

    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.

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    My LCD2's are early Fazor and bamboo, circa 2014, and still working flawlessly. I know what you mean about nicely driving them with a Schiit Rag, but my Schiit Mjolnir 1 (balanced SS) sounds identical and is a cheaper option, if you can find one.

    Currently on the hunt for some Weller 12 but can't find it locally. Hate having to deal with the secondary market, but it is what it is.

    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...

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    WOW! I have at least 3 pair of those NOS 6N7's tucked away somewhere...I'm rich! :astonished: Now I can afford the "matched pair" of Cary 300b empty boxes that you linked earlier :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Posting this here in hopes that it might help someone. My Yggy works flawlessly in regards to RFI and noise but I recently added a Schiit Mjolnir amp (the original SS) to my set up. I immediately encountered an intermittent low-volume "crackling" noise in right channel only. After upgrading to...

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Man, it's hard enough deciphering date codes and avoiding fakes. If we start scrambling to buy tubes that are dipped in black paint...I'm thinking that would be Bangybangs wet dream. :fearful: IMHO

    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.

    BB is a trip. Has 8 "matched" tubes but doesn't give any test results...only says they "sound clean". So he is "matching" by ear now? :D

    @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?

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Well, I will say that after I complained about the seams on the top of the ECC801S that I bought from Totempole_999, he sent me a perfect pair as replacements. They are 100% authentic TFK 801S, raised diamonds on bottom, sound great, but do have the permanent paint logos and date codes. My...

    Was j/k about the trade. No paint on one tube would bug me also. No sure on tube glow, I will make a point to notice tonight.

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    TK, maybe we just need to trade pairs. That way, you would be getting paint on both tubes. Say, you don’t mind seeing some seams on top, do ya? :D

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    FWIW, I contacted our seller in India (Sam) and informed him that I received a pair of TFK ECC801S with seams on the top and would like them to be replaced with the correct tubes, as pictured in the eBay auction. I’m hoping he is an honorable guy. Stay tuned.

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    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. ;)

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    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
