    Well don't worry man, depending on your equipment setup sometimes the slightly warmer sound of the WA6 may be better :wink:
     
  2. bbophead
    Oh so nice!  Happy for you.

    What headphones will you be using?  I love the WA22 with AKG K812.

    I'm jelly.  I have WA6, but now I want WA6-SE.

    I have one for sale at a real nice price!  [​IMG]

    LCD3's, T1's and the Alpha's.
     
    Only ones I have really played with so far are the LCD3's, its the newness factor partially but they are damn fun listen to.  Should have all my adapters today so will really get to do solid listening this weekend with everything.
     
    Now I gotta figure out what to do with the 6SE, whether I want to take it back to work or try and recoup some cost.  It's such a beautiful piece of equipment with the black color and the tubes glowing.

    It will probably be hard to give up a beautiful sounding piece of art.[​IMG]

    $$$ are a beautiful piece of art too.   [​IMG]
     
  9. bbophead
    As long as you're buying another beautiful piece of art.[​IMG]

    Probably just more tattoos.
     
     
    EDIT:  Got all of my adapters now, 6F8G's, the 422 from Glenn (who is great to work with), so can't wait to get home and listen.  Also got the socket savers from TubeMonger today.  I know they are not a requirement but I figured for a small investment, why not make sure I do what I can to protect the amp, so I pulled the trigger on them, especially since I know myself and my OCD/ADHD.  It is bound to happen that I will end up with more tubes and will fidget with things.
     
    Now with everything installed:

    By the way, it sounds phenomenal, especially the 422, and the adapter does make a difference.  Much more burn-in time to go to really open it up but I am awestruck by how it sounds.  Rotating between Smoke and Mirrors Percussion and Paco de Lucia at the moment and I have yet to find anything that didn't make me go "wow".  The 6F8G's make a big difference too over the stock tubes that get shipped with the amp.

    I think you've got it nailed.

    Congrats bonesnv [​IMG]. Still early days I know , but which do you prefer for T1's - WA6 SE or WA22 ? 
     
  13. bonesnv
     
     
    Out of the few songs I tried, I could tell straight away, the WA22.  The 6SE made them far to bright for my personal tastes and without using the 6GL7 tubes they were almost a bit fatiguing to wear for a lot of songs and I was considering selling them.  The WA22 cut back all of that harsh brightness and opened them up quite a bit more, so now I am second guessing that thought of selling them.  Will listen more this weekend for sure.
     
    Most of my listening right now is with the LCD3's.  They sounded good out of the 6SE, but they sound phenomenal out of the WA22.

    WA22 is indeed a great amp at the right price.  [​IMG]

    I bought the adapter from Glenn and he was 100% right. My amp with the WE422a has absolutely no hum at all when using his adapter, even when using the high gain setting. My favorite rectifier? Now even better! [​IMG]
