Sweet!!  Dying to read your thought on them.  If good, they're probably my next step.

My WA6 three-headed monster. Sonic impressions to come later.

Looks crowded doesn't it? Well the tubes aren't touching each other, but it's just by millimetres if not microns. Lol. I'm listening to Canadian bassist Alain Caron from his Jazz Rock Cuts Series. Right away a much wider soundstage is readily apparent. The bass is much tighter and more defined. I hear the treble as being less shrill. The overall sound is more liquid, less syrupy. The word I'm thinking of is "smooth". This is only after a couple of hours though. It could just be that the stock Woo 6DR7's aren't on the same level of quality of production, or I'm possibly just super excited at hearing something new. One thing of note is that I've turned the WA6 past 12 o'clock to hear the same relative volume as prior to the new tubes. More to come.

With my S/P and 6SN7's, there isn't much room either, and I also need a bit more volume also, and would describe the same sound. Enjoy!

Of course this all makes me wonder how much better sounding my hp's could possibly get? One thing for sure is that the tubes together look kinda cool.

What's cool is when you hear the tambourine for the first time in a recording that you thought you knew backwards and forwards. Maybe I'm just becoming a more critical listener.

It's good to know that I'm not the only "Wild Turkey On the Kit" out here.
