my wa6se is due today !
Hope you enjoy it…but you need to keep it for more than a day!
Congrats jayw. Way to go my friend.
Id like to buy the 596 driver tube (and adapter) for my 6se.
that could be a tall order, i'm loving my lyr with my new amperex 7308's !!
What tubes did you go for?
i got a used one off audiogon
i know it comes with the stock rectifier and a sophia , the middle post of the sophia is broken off I'm not sure if that will be an issue
I'm not sure I'll be keeping it I've just wanted to hear it
im very happy with my lyr
Enjoy - there is a pretty good variance in both sound and output with the various tubes and you might not hear the best out of the 6SE without matching the tubes with various headphones. The stock rectifier is pretty poor, but the Sophia is an improvement.
Some combinations I like with relevant headphones:
Audeze (LCD3) - 596 and 6FD7 or 6GL7
Grado PS1000 - Sophia and 6EW7. Not sure if you still have those though.
Have fun with the new toy!
The tubes look amazing when they are working. Got any picture of the back?
I have a Lyr 2 as a backup amp and it's excellent, but the WA6-SE is a notch above in SQ. Can't beat 100% tubes.
I also enjoy the Lyr very much with the PS1K's.
i'm listening to my "new to me" wa6se !
Do you like the extra power, and what tubes are you using?
well as for power, i have the lyr, it's 6 watts, but the 6se has plenty of power
i'm using stock tubes right now, i have a sophia princess i'll try after i get a feel for the stock rectifier
Nice, very nice.
