post #24001 of 30933

WA22 is a excellent amp for it $$$.. worth every penny...excellent with LCD-3 but you might want a better dac than essence one . I used the use the essence one as well but I was not really please with the sound. I upgrade to a NAD M51 and it was like night and day... I than went on and upgrade all the critical parts in the WA22 with top tier part like V-Cap and blackgates and OMG.... now my LCD-3 sound like HD800 with better bass. I am quite please with this setup so far.

While WA22 can definitely drives the LCDs with 7236/5998 power tubes, especially when your source is hot but it does seem a little lacking compare to other amps.  Like beta22. LF, just my 2 cents.

that's part of the reason I ordered the Mjolnir SS amp.....I am looking hard at LCD3's being a second set of phones

Friday Sake time!

 

Your balanced beta22 is daBomb! I listened to my se b22 last night with the DT770 32 ohms Anniversary Edition. Nice. Actually the b22 is nice with all of my headphones. :)

This may be considered apostacy, but I'm looking at installing something like the crack speedball constant current source (CCS) load for the power tube in my WA3+. Has anyone added CCS to any of their OTL Woos?

You can't go wrong either way. If I had to chose I'd pick the HD800. When you roll the right tubes, the hd800 is not a slouch in the low end as some might claim. Acoustic jazz bass sounds phenomenal.

However with Rock music the wa22 lcd2 combo is pretty epic.

The C4S (Speedball) schematic is out there and very easy to build or make a PCB for, but has anyone traced out the schematic for the WA3 to figure out what connection points would be used to install it? I dont have one otherwise I would have already! Looking for a used one to pick up in fact, there just doesnt seem to be many available.

Did you successfully Childproof your WA22?

unfortunately not yet, she still like to turn knobs and push switches.  the beta is high up that she can't reach it.  i hope the WA22 can come out and play really soon, missed it so much especially on a cold winter night.

Agreed. I loved my HD800s and LCD-3s with the WA22 when I owned it.

Absolutely!

post #24014 of 30933

So i've had my black 6SE about 2 weeks.

 

what the hell with all the dust!?!?

i knew there'd be dust

but crap i didn't expect this

I do like the color, but i had no idea how much dust the silver was hiding

 

anybody by chance heard the new PS Audio dac that they replaced the DLIII with?

there some comments on the thread for it, but i don't think many people have it yet. or people are just rather saving up for the PWD rather than buying the new DAC
