So I ordered a WA2 during the recent promotion, and I got it last Friday. Listened to it that night and Saturday afternoon, it was great. I went out of town for work Saturday night and didn't get home until late last night, so after I got home today I was excited to get some listening time in. To my surprise, it looks like one of the tubes has failed. Less than 7 hours of listening! I've already sent an email to WA about it, hopefully they can help me out. I guess in the...
fwiw, I much prefer the TH900 over the XC. The XC are comfortable only for short periods for me, though the earpads do feel very nice.

A couple extra pictures. I did actually find some small flaws on the amp, seen in the third picture. Kind of hard to see, never noticed it while it was on my equipment shelf. Not sure where they came from.         
Have an somewhat older WA6 unit for sale, pre-PDPS. Everything works great and I can't find any aesthetic flaws there are some very small flaws (see pictures below). Comes with a power cable as well as the following tubes: RCA 6DE7, Pinnacle 6DR7, Valve Art 274B, Raytheon 5U4GB. Tubes in the picture are not included. More pictures of the amp or tubes upon request.    Price with Paypal and continental US shipping included, subtract $50 if picked up locally (this thing is...
