I have a woo audio wa22. The tubes it came with are okay. Looking to replace the power tubes to bring this amps potential out completely. I have been looking all over recently for a great replacement. Everything seems sold out. I use the woo as a pre and headphone amp in my main rig. Thanks.

I may get some negative responses on this 1 but check out EBay.

I just checked and there are quite a few up for auction.

Also, Tube Depot has them.

You can also run a search for its substitute - there a few out there, and then start hunting for those.

I have had good luck from EBay, even ordering tubes from as far as Russia.

Good luck!

  • To whom more was given more will be required.
    • Never go to a psychiatrist, adopt a straycat or dog. On the street they live only two years average.

Best tube brokers in US are Upscale and Andy at VTS.
6080 is a military version of 6AS7 that are made by Shuguang in large amounts.
