    Leftside, I appreciate that advice and your knowledge and will replace the bad one.  More than anything else I'm mad at myself for buying on eBay when there are established enterprises selling the same thing.  Yeah, a bit of OCD since the tubes do sound great.

    I'm also now in the possession of a Glenn 300B headphone amp. I'm still keeping the WA22 though. The WA22 has been moved to another room :) I also like my Allnic HPA-3000, but I can't justify having three headphone amps, so that one will be up for sale soon.

    Yes, I prefer the Glenn, but the difference isn't night and day. It's actually confirmed for me that with the right tube combo, the WA22 is a wonderful amp and very good value - especially if you can find a used one.

    This is it for me - there won't be another headphone amp upgrade.

    I agree the wa22 with a great tube combo is simply amazing sounding..

    Found a new home for the WA22. Seems pretty happy there :) FullSizeRender (1).jpg FullSizeRender (2).jpg FullSizeRender.jpg

    Hi guys: I am almost ready to click buy for a WA22.

    Mi headphones are:
    Focal Elear
    Ether Flow

    I know the Elears and the Ether Flow will work fine, not so sure about the Audezes.

    Any experience driving the LCD4s with the WA22?

    Thanks for your comments.

    Beautiful.... :beerchug:

    Work great with the LCD-3's, but I prefer good power tubes (5998's, 6BL7's) and higher gain driver tubes such as ECC33.

    What does your corsair 540 air run I've got 2 of them awesome just noticed..enjoy

    IMG_7055.JPG Jupiter caps with Caddock resistors. Yep managed to fit them in there thanks to a local amp builder (New Zealand). Initial impressions - feels like a digital haze has been lifted off. The Jupiter caps are very smooth but not to the point where the Highs are rolled off. The bass is still tight and speed is not slow either.

    Glad you like the Jupiter copper caps. I'm getting the same in my upgraded DAC. Haven't received it yet though.

    @leftside btw what DAC are you getting? Lampizator?
  13. leftside
    Yes - the "Golden" version of the Atlantic.

    Hey WA22 owners, my name is Joe and in a few days, I'll get to join the club!

    I've wanted to pick up one of these guys for a while and recently was able to do so! Mine will come with the stock Syl 6SN7s, JAN 6080s, and a RCA 5U4G. Been doing a bit of research and went ahead and grabbed a set of TS 7236s, TS 6SN7GTBs, and a TS 5V4G. I won't be able to afford tubes in the $$$ range in the foreseeable future so I need keep things cheap.

    Anyway, glad to finally be able to chime in - would love to post my impressions once this bad boy arrives!

    PS - I know this is a trivial/controversial topic, but does changing the fuse offer any sonic improvement?

    That sounds great joe, I'd agree the 5v4g's are a really good sounding rectifier, as for the 6sn7's never cared for their sound just me. also take a look at some 6BL7's very nice and very affordable I haven't heard good things about the TS 7236's don't own any, You'll have a lot of fun tube rolling, a lot of the members here have a ton of experience just ask if you need some info..enjoy

    Oh forgot to add any of you guys try Woo's tube compatibility chart web link can't get it to work, has Woo taken it down or something..Thanks
