post #24046 of 31838

I really loved it with the WA2! That's the only Woo I tried it with however. Not a lot of people like the HD700 but I find it one hell of a headphone.

To make the purchase of the WA22 worthwhile, be prepared to use a fully balanced source.

I found this to be the case to my ears.  I run my Woo DAC balanced to the WA22, and have a balanced(L/R XLR's) Black Dragon cable for my HD800's.  A/B listening tells me there is more presence in the soundstage(if that's possible with HD800's!) when running in balanced mode.  On music with a lot of acoustic instruments, they blend much better to me, in balanced mode.  To my ears, the difference is not subtle either.

I had the pleasure of enjoying the '22' of other members...and simply springing for the tongue_smile.gifsnacks. Truth be told, I tired to buy one Pre-Owned in 2011 but couldn't bribe anyone. I have since moved on and later this year when I regain employment, something wonderful will await!

Oddly, I could never afford that amp with my current (temporary) unemployment status. But, now that the price has jumped, and insanely so, by golly, I want it for $10k!!! mad.gif

Consider...the increase WOULD have gone toward the Stax SR-009...rolleyes.gif

For something I can't afford, I never pay attention to.  For $15k, I can get a WES and SR-009 and a very nice gift for the lady.  Win win.

And that pairing would sound much better than the WA234 and any set of headphones you could ever find. smile.gif

Plus the wife will forgive me dropping $10k.  Let me run it by the CFO.

Ya, but if you spring for the Woo monoblocks you'd still probably have to forego the hookers for a couple of months.
