I have a Woo Audio WA7 Fireflies headphone amplifier and USB DAC.  This unit has the solid state power supply.  I've been using it to drive my Sennheiser HD-650s without any problem whatsoever.  It has that great Woo Audio sound and functions as a great DAC.     The unit was purchased new from Woo Audio in October 2012.   There is a wealth of information regarding the unit on the Woo Audio website.   I also have a pair of the $100 upgraded Harmonix tubes that I'm...
For sale, one pair of Stax SR-404LE earspakers.  From the photos, you can see the earspeakers are in mint condition, with light use in a non-smoking house.  I'm selling as I recently upgraded to a pair of the Stax SR-007 earspeakers.     Price is $700 plus shipping.   
Good point, spritzer. I did remember it wasn't entirely stock.
Thanks for the information. It's a nice looking amp.
The current bid is still considerably lower than what Spitzer asked for his. But then again, his was modified.
I, too, aspire one day to own a machine worthy of inclusion on this list.
Elephas - that's quite an Esoteric stack you've got. I'm curious how much of a sonic difference the clock makes. Who made the amp on the right side of the picture?

Better clarity, more expressive...
Leo, HeadphoneAddict has heard both and posted his comments on The Stax thread (New) in the High-end Audio Forum. He does a good job of describing the particular aspects of each and comparing and contrasting each. I am a big fan of Woo (I have a GES) and once funds permit, I plan on buying the WES. Good luck.
