    Id like to buy the 596 driver tube (and adapter) for my 6se.
  5. jaywillin
    that could be a tall order, i'm loving my lyr with my new amperex 7308's !!
  6. bfreedma
    What tubes did you go for?
  7. jaywillin
    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.
  12. jaywillin
    i'm listening to my "new to me" wa6se !

    Do you like the extra power, and what tubes are you using?
  14. jaywillin
    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
  15. bpcans
    Nice, very nice.
