I'll try and do a proper couple hour listening test soon.
But safe to say ... they both sound like 12 to 1300 dollar amps to me ... with a few nitpicky things I liked regarding one or the other. What I did find surprising though and feel safe in saying ... the Woo 6 SE, which I'm much less familiar with since it's my roomies ... did not at all sound overtly tubey or too tubey ... in fact, it was the equal to the Raptor in regards to cleanliness, detail and articulation. Neither sound overtly tubey to my ear and neither did one sound more "lush" than the other.
But more later. I need much more time to draw any accurate comparisons.
