I have recently organised to get an ALO Pan Am as well as the new Woo Audio WA7. I'll be reviewing both but the offer is open to borrow and/or review anything I've organised to receive. I hope that if you guys get anything for review, we can organise sharing it around and writing reviews as required, either collectively (eg: from meet impressions) or individually. 
 
If anyone would like to borrow/review either of the above amps, let me know. So far, I'll be sending the WA7 to Sasaki-san (Head-Fi Sasaki-san before anyone gets confused).

Before I forget, other than the Siemens that came as extras, I bought Mullards and the Voshkods for the PanAm, but am happy to share them around. The WA7 isn't really a tube rolling amp -- there isn't much of a variety available for it unlike for the PanAm.

Jack offered the EH Gold Pin tubes at a discount but while searching eBay I found a pair for $60 + $4 shipping so I nabbed those. So if anyone decides they love the amp so much they want to buy it you can buy those tubes from me.

Q: Wait, so is Jack expecting someone to buy the WA7 after the demo or he's cool if no one buys & it gets shipped back to US??

Cos that was one of the issues we had with the LL that the expectation was someone was gonna buy & Alex didn't have to worry about shipping it back to the States.

I'm not sure he expects it, but I'm sure he hopes someone will buy it. Not for sharing, but he isn't really making money on these.
 
I can understand the issue about the LL as it requires a custom 100V transformer for Japan. The WA7 doesn't.  I'll bet you'll like it though, especially with the better tubes.

Wow, it has been almost a year. Here are things I still have available for borrowing if people are interested:
 
Audeze LCD-X and XC. I was going to buy one or the other pair after I finish a video review, but if anyone wants to borrow/have a mini-meet and try them, let me know and I'll ask about it.
 
JH Audio Roxannes (universal). They are heading from Arkapol to Shigzeo next.
 
Maybe we should have a mini-meet the day after the February show with all this? It wouldn't be too much trouble to haul the planars if we have a good enough amp for them.

I missed this. I have Sean's Theorem 720 ATM.
 
The universal Roxanne is with Nathan ATM too if anyone wants to borrow it.
