WA2 and WA6SE...
I would like to know which of the two is more neutral sounding with good clarity and big soundstage that sound good with classical and vocals. I know both are very good amps but their identical price made the job quite hard for me. So I want to know which is more towards the "neutral" side and which is more towards the "tubey warm" side. Thanks in advance :)
WA6-SE is more neutral and dynamic and balanced. bigger soundstage too, depending on the tubes you roll, you can get a more lush presentation, but this is a more solid-state/neutral amp, though with tube characteristics. i prefer this amp for low impedance headphones like akg, grado, denon as well as harder to drive planars like LCD-2/3 and HE-500/5LE
the WA2 is more tubey and warm, but not colored and thick, but silky smooth and laid back and still having great highs and a well rounded coherency to it. i personally prefer the WA2 when used with high impedance headphones like hd 800 and t1.
