    Now I just need the headphones meant for it so I can really enjoy the fully depth of it; and I will be ordering the Sophia and some other tubes this evening.  Stock tubes in the photo.
    Even the P7s got a very minor boost in sound clarity but I wasn't expecting a drastic change with them compared to using the AD2, fairly similar sound makeup between the two amps with the P7s.  I have to keep the volume even on low around the 8-9 o clock range.

    bonesnv, nice looking rig sir. I've got the B&W P5's and I've heard the P7's also. I wouldn't consider any of the B&W headphones worthy of your amps capability. Good headphones would really make a difference in your music enjoyment.

    My WA6SE has shipped! Got to get it through UK customs yet, which I expect will not be a cheap experience, but hey...
    Can anyone recommend a good, reliable, trustworthy purveyor of tubes in the UK/Europe?
  4. bonesnv
    Thanks, and totally agreed, it's an ongoing wait.

    They don't get hot like you think. The hottest running tube would probably be the GZ34 from my experience, but then again I never touched them, I only held my hand over them and they are warm from about 2-4" away from the tops. As a matter of fact, the aluminum on the entire  amp, only sometimes gets slightly warm, even mine with the wood on it doesn't get hot. 
    Nice!!! enjoy.

    Mostly, don't touch the tubes after they've warmed up.

    I have WA22 & T1, highly recommended. You do not have to bias the tubes on WA22. Haven't heard HE 560.

    As long as you are using high output tubes like 7236 and 5998.

    I have my WA22 on the shelf that's under the end table next to my couch. The top of my USAF 596, which is that tallest tube in the amp, is 3 inches below the top of the table. The wood above the tube gets just barely warm to the touch after an hour or so of use.

     For the signal tube best use US as it is a US model. Rectifiers can be sourched from all places.

    I prefer WA2 for T1 over WA22 still, the wa22 doesnt give the t1 much bass

    Agreed , OTL will mostly always give more thumping bass than a Transformer coupled amp. But there are certain tube combinations that i have tried (list below, this list is a WIP, still have quite a few combinations to try from the tubes I own (mentioned in my profile)) which give HD 800 / T1 good quality of bass on WA22 (I listen to a lot of EDM & love my bass).
