HI El Doug, I have been following your thread about your WES closely. After having it the past months have your done indepth listening and if so...

Nothing I have heard has made me give up my SP ES-1 yet. Cheers, Hi Mikeymad, are you saying that I am better of considering...

The Woo WES will have a much much shorter lead time if you are looking to get an amp soon, which I would assume you are, given that you just bought the Stax. This is real useful info. I read somewhere that a member had to wait 18months for his BHSE.... while Jack indicated a leadtime of 4 weeks for the WES, definitely food for...

You might want to hook up with the owner for audition. sound wise, there should be not much difference between original blue hawaii and bhse. for WES, closest you can find a person that own it in the region is fcklo and he is in HK. btw, how much you bought the o2 ? and where did you get it? Hi...
Quote: Originally Posted by boomana I think very few people have heard both, and probably none that have heard both outside of a meet setting, which isn't the best place for picking up on the nuances of high-end gear. I have and love the BHSE as the best O2 amp I've heard. I really respect Woo's amps, but have no experience with the WES. Hi Boomana, it is tricky buying equipments without a proper audition especially when a fair sum of money is...

Thanks Johnnie, Headphone Addict seems to be the only comparison of any detail so far. I...
Hi, I just bought a Stax O2 Mk1. I have zero knowledge and experience about electrostats and their power requirements. I have limited opportunities to audition system combinations. I don't have the time or the patience for a slow upgrade route. I just like to buy a combo that produces very good music that I can live with for a very long time (I call this the buy and forget route... I can't afford repeated upgrades) I have been reading extensively about the different...

Then you throw in an airy and natural soundstage that no headphones can match. Everything sounds very effortless. There you have it, a K1000. Admittedly, the K1000 was driven by the Audio Note Kit 1 while the K701 is driven by the Phoenix. The source was...
