WA5 Lite Edition ((WA5-LE) 300B Single-ended Triode Class-A Headphone Amplifier Output Transformer Coupled with Premimum parts upgrade package. Please check out my auction page on Audiogon. AudiogoN ForSale: Woo audio WA5-LE. Thanks for looking!

I ordered the 300B's from Galen Carol Audio, Galen Carol Audio Homepage. WE closed down for maintenance and will close down from Xmas to new years.
I've had the WA5-LE for about 6 weeks. First the difference between the LE and the WA5. This amp is only for headphones, no speakers and no AKG 1000! The money I saved by doing this I put into upgraded parts. These are the parts upgrade: V-cap 0.15/600V Jensen 220u/450V BG vk 150u/350V BG std 220u/16V BG std 470u/160V Mills-mrc50 750ohms/50W Mills-mra12 22k/12W Mills-mra5 7.5k/5W Mills-mra5 15k/5W Mills-mra12 62k/12W Audio Note tantalum 330/1W Audio...
