I have two of those headphone stands - they're awesome. Small footprint and they do the job nicely. How long did you have to wait for your WA6?

The Power 1? or the IC3? The IC is 0.5m custom (as you can see in the pics on pg1, they didn't skimp out on the materials, the cable itself is 0.5 but materialwise i got 1.0m of cable! is this standard practice?) - neutrik mini to whatever premium brand RCA connectors they use over there. Power 1 was stock 1.5m.

Oh! WA6 is stock. You DEFINITELY want to get one! I got mine off audiogon as a 9.5/10. Guy moved heavily into speakers .

The bass tightens up after 50 or so hours. The dialetrics, caps and the transformers need time to settle and burn in. After 200 hours it takes another jump, but you will have to wait to hear that and to believe.

Jamato,

Do you still favor the gz32 over the metalbase?

You may see a bigger improvement upgrading your source instead. But then again, I have no idea how the Ipod's DAC has improved with IMod.

Check out threads on the Woo (and amps in general) and burn in. Caps are the last to get its tonal characteristics in an amp. The Black Gates (special ordered in my amp) are known to take 3-400 hrs to fully perform. The caps physically go thru changes in fluid viscosity, can stretching, etc. When I first got my amp, the sound was quite impressive. I read in several threads that my hps (701s) and the BG caps needed about the same hrs of use to hit that sweet spot. I ran mine 24/7 w/pink noise and could hear a difference from new to final "curing". The most pronounced were the control of bass (detail, impact), fullness of instruments (harmonics and decay details) and soundstage imaging (3-D placement of live venues) with less volume.

Another consideration that will make you grin is the tubes getting burned in and rolling of various "flavors". This Woo is a very good value and there are lots of happy owners. I considered this unit but finally decided on another. I still follow the Woo owners impressions though.

Thank you for impressions. We all enjoy the first impressions and joys of satisfied buyers. Also, sweet setup.

I guess I took too long to type my follow up. Jamato gave you some validity to my statement.

I am using the metal base and loving it. Solid, delicate when needed and powerful when it calls for it. Expansive and harmonically beautiful.

The Mullard or Amperex (I have a nos Amperex metal base I haven't really used yet) and a good RCA with the shield between the two plates.
