    Can you explain how you are running balanced outputs into unbalanced inputs? I'm not tracking something. The WA5 is single ended. It can't 'do' balanced.
  2. JLoud
    The WA5 has balanced inputs that are summed internally.
  3. JLoud
    Yes the balanced inputs and output are for convenience. But according to Schiit, they recommended rather strongly, to use balanced output from the yggy. I tried SE and balanced out of Yggy to WA5. I did prefer the balanced. The WA5 takes the balanced input and converts to SE. And does it very well. WA5 is SE, just capable of accepting both types of signal. The whole balanced vs SE is way overblown. But just go with what sounds best to you. That's what this hobby is all about, personal audio nirvana.

    Got my Sophia 274B in my WA6SE tonight. Here's a long exposure of its glow! [​IMG]

    Are 12SN7-->13DE7 adapters identical to 6SN7-->6DE7 adapters?

    edit: Nevermind, got an answer from Woo already :)

    Beautiful photo. I love what the Sophia Princess did to my amp's sound stage and low end. I know that the rectifier tube "rectifies" AC to provide the DC rail voltages, but I was very surprised that a tube not actually in the audio amplification chain could make such a difference (from the stock Chinese tube supplied).
  12. Rhamnetin
    That suggests that the Yggy's XLR outputs are better for other reasons I guess.

    Anyway, I'll be joining this club very soon, getting the same exact amp as you actually my good sir. But are good rectifier tubes for under $200 or even $250 (pair) hard to find now or what? Sheesh.

    Any impressions between the WA22 & WA33 (standard)?

    This morning I pulled the trigger on a WA33 (standard) which should be here within the first week of June. I Did read some impressions about the WA33 (standard) from some of the CanJams, and all were very positive. I've owned my WA6 for +/-6yrs now, and I still enjoy it very much, so I'm thinking I can't go wrong.

    I heard the WA33 at the CanJam and it's impressive. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
