Tells you I still miss the WA22...
post #27917 of 30433

i miss my WA2...

 

:( 

 

just got these grey glasses, the sound is better than the treasures for sure. great midrange, really comes out nicely. but not as silky or euphonic as WA2, despite the warmth, and the bass sucks compared to WA2. it feels like it goes deep sometimes, but it also feels like it lacks impact slam and a good decay. just doesn't seem to handle the T1 as nice.

 

the HD 800 sound GREAT but i was happy out of WA2 and GSX still miles better.

 

i can see why macedonianhero sold his T1 when he owned WA22, they have good mids, but are outperformed by hd 800 and audeze. and the bass doesn't move me like with the WA2. that special magic isn't there.

I think some shipping companies refuse to ship wooden boxes, so this isn't necessarily a good thing..

Told you.... .P

 

I really like the WA22 for it's present mids, it is really nice wit the Audezes and the HD650 and the Q701 - those are the can I use it with. 

 

I havent tried the T1 on it, though - sold the T1 when I got the WA2, haha - Reason was I found the always found the T1 too bright. I even brought the WA2 to unbrighten it. But it didn't help... Otherwise it sounded good. (In order no to scare off someone from the WA2 - I also had an ear issue at that time which certainly made me more sensitive than normal. But T1 can still be bright).

Ever considered, tried, or owned the Leben CS300? I think it has some of the WA22+WA2 qualities..

Actually I sold my T1s well after I sold my WA22....I needed to make room for my SR-009s. That said, I do prefer the T1s with the WA2 over the WA22. With the HD800s, it was most definitely the other way around. :smile:

considered, but never tried it or felt like getting it. ive heard good things  and not so good things about it. also im not a huge fan of the looks.

Ever since I listened and saw the 300CX in real, I've been in love with it. I was even thinking of selling all my amps and replacing it with the Leben, but owning only one amp seems so weird

You are so right! No amp is good enough to justify having only one!

I think you should try one... But I agree, the Woo amps look better. And your idea about a custom made amp seems more intriguing =) But the Leben might have what you are looking for.

The Lebens look cool to those of us who owned audio equipment in the 70s.  It is a very retro look.  The Woo are very cool looking for tube-o-philes.

I love the Leben look a lot. Never heard one before but it is on my list if WA5LE does not work out.
