Could be strategically zoned with the four members living along the most efficient route between NY MA & CA.

Well, it need not be the flagship 234. Rather, a newly revamped WA5 based on said achievements. So maybe the owner goes for the same model but new and improved. 

I listened to the WA234 at the RMAF and to be honest I did not hear $10,000 difference to my fully loaded WA5-LE. The price of the WA234 is 50% higher of what I paid for my McIntosh MC601 (600 watts) monoblocks and $1,000 more that that pair plus my McIntosh C2300 tube pre-amp. I don't see how one can justify them. I might be insane but now that insane biggrin.gif!

did you listen to your balanced t1 with the wa234? 

 

i remember thinking getting sr71(400 dollars portable amp) was crazy.  now with wa5.  never say never but, my case, i rather spend the money on the source and cables and other stuff.  10000 is just a bit too much.

No. It was a pair of balanced HD800 that Jack had there which I am familiar with since I own a pair too.

The WA234 is not $10,000, is $15,000eek.gif If i remember correctly $10,000 was the original price almost 2 years ago.

 

I love Woo Audio and Jack is great but less than $15,000 if you want to stay within headphones (not comparing to speakers system) one can get a top of the line electrostatic amp (WES, A-10, BHSE, Electra) with a pair of SR-009 and most likely you will be better off IMO.

post #26833 of 30830
