This is one of the best meets ever! Great people, nice showroom, and many exhibition.             Got up early this morning (East coaster) to tour around the beautiful San Francisco.    Hope to see all of you again soon!
You can use both XLR and 1/4" the same time but you won't get the best sound as opposed to use one hearphone a time. The down effect would be minimum when using same headphones. Hi-Z is 120 ohms and Lo-Z is 8 ohms, same on the classic WA5.
What's the difference between the LEVEL switch and HP Output switch?    First of all, both the XLR and 1/4" output are active the same time. The HP POWER HI / LO switch select the headphone power output model between high and low power. It affects both outputs the same time. When it is on HI Power, the max output on the headphone outputs is about 8w. On the LO Power, the outputs are approx 1.5w. This is NOT a gain control switch. It switches between Plate output (HI) or...
Here are the highlights for the new versions.     New features: WA5-LE ($3699) - High power 1/4” and 4-Pin XLR headphone outputs (up to 8watts) - User selectable High or Low output LEVEL to match headphone sensitivity - User selectable High or Low output LEVEL to match headphone sensitivity - User selectable High or Low impedance to match headphone impedance   WA5 ($5899): Same as WA5-LE plus the following features and benefits: - Speaker outputs x 2 (8 watts...
The new version added a  HI / LO LEVEL switch, and a HI / LO power switch. The HI LEVEL and HI power setting will output approx 8W. This setting is recommended to use for inefficient headphones such as Abyss AB-1266, HifiMan HE-1000, HE6, and AKG K1000. Yes, there is a lot of power going into headphones but you don't have to use all 8 watts. You can use the LOW power setting, approx 1.5W, to make all other headphones to sing properly.   In the previous version of WA5,...
To clarify, the above is not a prototype. The revision has been completed which to replace the old version. We have started to build the new version. I will bring the latest WA8 prototype (battery powered tube DAC/amp). We have been working on a long list of enhancements and tweaks getting closer to production.
We are all packed up and ready for party!   Here are a list of gears we are taking to the meet.   WES Black with premium parts upgrade WA22 Black WDS-1 Black and Silver WA7d + WA7tp WA7 + WA7tp WA8, battery powered tube amp/DAC (prototype v3)   Stax SR-009 Mr.Speakers ETHER Beyer T1 Sennheiser HD700 Noble IEMs   See you all soon, Jack
Hello Stax-i-nox,   Thank you so much for sharing your impression here with the community. It is truly a pleasure to know the WA5 is still working on its top game.   For the records, Stax-i-nox took ownership of his WA5 since June 2007. He lent us his beloved AKG K1000 headphones so we could refine the K1K output for his headphones. The K1K output is now known to drive Hifiman HE5/6 and Abyss AB-1266 headphones at potential. Thanks again for your...
We'd love to join.
We are excited to this incredible offer. Hope you will find something you like!
