Western Electric JW-6AK5
« on: January 15, 2013, 08:02:36 AM »
Hi all

Just got some Western Electric JW-6AK5 tubes yesterday for the inputs of my amp. Have been using various NOS tubes including GEs, which I thought were OK but Steven told me a few times they are average. Well I stuck the new tubes in last night and they are sensational. In every respect they are better, voices and instrumental timber is much better, probably double the width and depth I was getting, image more focussed and forward but with a much greater sense of naturalness and realism. Bass is way better as well. I have heard plenty of upgrades over the years that were marginal at best but this was HUGE. These tubes are something special...Western Electric living up to the hype  8)
