I made the decision because I wanted a 300B amp that could power high efficiency speakers and all the headphones including the he6 which was one of my favorite headphones and still is. I also wanted it to drive my other headphones and since it drives speakers I am using them nearfield and glad I made this choice. For me its an end game amplifier. Ghere are tons of speaekrs that this will drive including some great floor-standers like Coincident Technology,ZU,Tektron and Omega just to scratch the surface then there sis Salk,Hawthorne and many more. The sound for me of the direct heated triodes make this end game for me.
thanks frank. this is the no1 one amp for me now. i probably wont get the money together for a while because i have decided not to sell the WA2 and i will get a DAC first - maybe B stock vioelectric V800 from thomann. Of course if i sell some paintings you never know what could happen.
