I love my 6SE but thinking about moving up the line. If anyone is thinking about a silver unit with less than 200 hours shoot me a PM

Rydenfan, what makes you want to get rid of your 6SE and which amp are you thinking about stepping up to?

Dear Friends, 
Im a proud and happy owner of 6SE...I use it with with akg701. I had this set up for 4 years now, and it works for me. 
 
 
I was wondering if I can use the 6SE as a preamp for my powered studio monitors. I can use the headphone out directly into the monitors. Has anybody tried this??

The SAR4 tube in mine just burned out. It won't turn back on. I'm just using what comes stock until I can get something better, but does anyone have any cheaper recommendations, or should I just order direct from WooAudio again? $100+ kind of sucks when I have had the amp less than six months and baby it...

You could try some NOS 5U4G if you're looking for a cheaper alternative, most are around $10-$50 per tube

My Wa6-SE is brand new; not even properly broken in. It had the stock tubes (which were quite enjoyable!).

I despair of audio reviews! It's all subjective and relative. Who knows whether you will hear and agree with the adjectives and superlatives that someone else writes about their experience?

I think I hear better bass extension and more transparency.

Mine is also, congratulations!
Did you upgrade from the WA6? If so, which tubes did you use with the WA6?
BTW, I totally agree with you about any reviews on audio from my own experience.

My previous amp was an ASL MG Head DT OTL Mark II with external power supply. I never upgraded the stock tubes.

It had a wonderful warm sound, but was quite colorful (in a fun way). I still like it, but the 6SE is definitely a HUGE step forward.
