    but that wouldn't encourage you to roll tubes if you already have the best ones. Maybe having a maxed out option when buying would be better.

    Well there are many great sounding tubes that a builder can make their stock reference tube other the the poor ones that people claim are in their newly-acquired amps. It is after all a subjective call. But the general consensus is that the amps are supplied with poor tubes. I still roll tubes. Right now I'm replaced my Mullard GZ34 with RCA 5Y4G and am happy with the sound (for this evening's Miles Davis session. :wink:

    Maybe I'm naive but I didn't mind my stock tubes. Before upgrading tubes I messed with other ways to gain SQ.

    It is a little sad when you have the expensive amp with the cheapest tubes known to man? Lol

    Woo is just trying to keep retail cost down and still offers tube upgrades upon purchase for those who want to spend.

    I agree.  If you start out with the best (read expensive) tubes, then your product is in a whole different price bracket.  Besides, not everyone wants to fiddle with tubes, believe it or not.  I know, heresy.

    Have anyone tried to pair the chord hugo with the wa5 drivng the hd800?
  7. bpcans
    Yes, do tell someone. Inquiring minds would like to know.

    They already have that don't they? Every amp listing includes Jacks suggested tube upgrades.
  9. magiccabbage
    Yea but they are nowhere near the best options. Maybe its not possible to have a stock of "best" tubes for woo audio

    Plus, I'm not sure who would decide which tubes are best. The sound signatures that I listen for and prefer are most probably different from yours and one of the really nice things that I've found about the Woo amps is that you can tune them to your own preferences. TS5998 or GEC6AS7G? USAF596 or WE422A? Defends on the mood I'm in and how much Lagavulin is left. Perhaps the best Jack can do is offer a general, all around upgrade and leave it at that.

    I have an EML 274b tube on order. I've read a lot about upgrading the driver tubes, but I'm bewildered by all the options.
