    Woo Audio WA22 Amp Owner Unite

    Thanks for all this! I truly appreciate it. I love how great this community is. I purchased this tube in September. I might have around 60 hours on the tube at this point. I should be well in warranty. I will email Parts Connexion and see what can be worked out. If the problem repeats...

    ZMF Caldera - New Planar Magnetic from ZMF!

    I did a few months ago. There was no real estimate. Never hurts to try again.

    ZMF Caldera - New Planar Magnetic from ZMF!

    They say they are out of stock. Have for some time too. Supply can't keep up with demand in a lot of areas these days.

    ZMF Caldera - New Planar Magnetic from ZMF!

    Where did you happen to find EML 5U4Gs? I have been searching for a while and they just don't seem to be in stock anywhere.

    ZMF Caldera - New Planar Magnetic from ZMF!

    I am someone who loves the Atrium to death. I figured I would be set for a while and be so happy. Then I saw the Kingwood was still available, so I that was a lie! Can't wait to give the Caldera a listen.

    They are fantastic tubes, but you'd nearly spend your entire budget on those alone.

    I have never soldered anything in my life, but I have built PCs... I'm looking forward to building this thing!

    Feedback by 'Coran' on listing 'RCA Vt-231 Smoked Gray Glass NOS tubes'

    Great seller! Tubes were packed well, and sound great! Awesome communication, and great knowledge of what they sell. Would buy from again.

    For 6AS7G tube rollers here .....

    Hey folks. I'm looking to upgrade the stock power tubes that came with my WA22 (Thompson 6080s) and was looking for some advice. Right now I'm eyeing either some RCA JAN CRC 6AS7G tubes which I can get for ~$140, or a pair of Chatham 6AS7G that are being sold for $330. I know NOS tube prices are...

    Thanks. I've been eyeing both the Elrog and the EML, but I can't find them in stock anywhere to buy right now. Rather annoying, but it is what it is. I have been going through lots of those other tube threads. Lots to read!

    Woo Audio WA22 Amp Owner Unite

    I've had my WA22 for a little over a month now, and I must say...I get it now. This is my first tube amp. I had heard what they were capable of doing (especially, on ZMFs, as I have the Atrium), but didn't quite realize just how amazing it can get. This is probably the first time where I...

    Dubstep Girl's Massive 5AR4/5R4/5U4G Rectifier Review/Comparison! (Rectifer Tube Rolling thread)

    Thanks for this write up! If they ever come back in stock I might strongly consider them.

    Dubstep Girl's Massive 5AR4/5R4/5U4G Rectifier Review/Comparison! (Rectifer Tube Rolling thread)

    What exactly makes them so good? Can you provide a few more specifics? I'm starting to look for a new rectifier for my WA22.

    Hey folks, I might be pulling the trigger on this amp in a few days. How bad is the tube rolling market these days? I'm sure I'll be sticking with the stock tubes for a while, but at some point I'll definitely want to start rolling. Are the prices insane? Is there even good inventory at this...

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    Thanks for this. the WA22 has been on my radar for a while. How would you describe the sound signature of the stock tubes? What were the changes you heard when you swapped them out? Maybe it is time to just dive in... This is very sensible advice, I appreciate it. I have been looking into tube...

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    Basically, that way lies madness (for me). I know how I am, and even if I got a great tube amp that sounded amazing out of the box (I have a few I have been eyeing for some time), I know that I would start obsessing about finding and trying new tubes to the point where I would stop focusing on...

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    Has anyone tried their Atrium (or other ZMFs) with a Violectric amp? I'm thinking of upgrading from my Burson Soloist 3XP, and these Violectric amps seem like they could be a great match for the Atrium with their high output voltage. I'm looking into the HPA V340 or V550. I'm not quite ready to...

    Somewhat disconcerting, if only because I trust FedEx as far as I can throw one of their trucks...

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    Ordered on release day, still no shipping info :( That's probably what I get for ordering an upgrade cable at the same time. Oh well...

    gods, I miss my CMA-400i. That unit was the perfect all in one.

    THE ZMF ATRIUM!!! and other cool LTD ZMF Stuff

    Does anyone have any experience with the ZMF upgrade cables? I might spring for one this go around to add to my soon to be overflowing ZMF collection. I'm just wondering what they might bring to the table (other than looking rather pretty).
