    I just sold my WA22 and will be making the switch to a WA5-LE.

    Just wondering if the Mullards ECC35 plays well with the WA5? I love those tubes on my WA22.

    What about good 300Bs that don't cost an arm or leg?

    In terms of tube rolling on the WA5, which set of tubes when changed will give the most noticeable difference?

    Thanks all!

    I spent sometime with the WA33 Elite Edition at Axpona using the Focal Utopia which are very sensitive and the amp was death quiet. I don't think you need to worry about hiss with the WA33.

    Great to hear. Thanks for the reassurance. Hopefully I'll know sooner than later. :)

    Was is this the 'stock' tubes or the 'upgraded tubes'?

    Stock tubes and still sounded impressive to the point that I going to try to raise the funds to order one and get back into the Woo family again.

    For 300b tubes that don't cost a fortune, might want to look at EML tubes. I picked up a pair for $690 with shipping. From Tubesusa.com. Been using them for about 6 months. Really like them.

    My WA33 is silent as well with stock tubes and when using upgraded driver tubes and rectifier. I have yet to change the power tubes.

    I just purchased the marconi u52 rectifier for the wa6se and man this beauty is amazing in every way imaginable by far the best that I have used so far by a long way " my question is has anyone used the u52 in the se and what driver/power tubes have you guys used with it ?
    I am currently using the 12sn7s with the u52 but any opinions on great combinations that work really well together would love your feedback .
    Cheers headfiers.

    I thought 12SN7s were not compatible with the SE?

    What do you think I posted? Look here for tube compatibility.

    Thank you.

    Yeah, it says WA6, not WA6-SE.
