I have personally verified this and it is correct.  You really don't want to use WA22 unbalanced.  It's a waste of $ in that case.  If I can't go balanced from DAC at all, WA6SE will be a better choice for much less $.

The wa22 still sounds good, even unbalanced. But it yes indeed, it sounds better balanced. There is a significant difference, but WA22 is still a good performer using only RCA inputs, depending on headphone power requirements.

Listening to the WA7/TH900 combo this evening.  Cheers!

 

Is that a WDS-1? And if so, do you usually run it with the sharp or slow filter?

It is.  I run it on slow with the TH900s.  That said, I've not spent a great deal of time comparing the two filters.

Hi, can anyone give me some advice whether should I buy WA22 for my LCD-3, and if anyone knows, how does WA22 compared to Bryston BHA-1 on LCD-3?

 

Thanks so much

post #28793 of 30407

Get WA5 for LCD3.

Still enjoying my wa2 after a year. Absolutely nothing but praise for woo audio.

Hmm tricky one. I think you will get mixed opinions on that. Maybe ask Macedonian hero that, he had the WA22 with the LCD3 but i don't know if he has heard the BHA-1. people usually prefer solid state for planar's.

I am currently have BHA-1 as my main amp, but I am really curious about the sound of Woo, if WA22 can drive LCD-3 well then I will definitely buy it.

It will drive it but i dunno how good it will be. Maybe DubstepGirl could chime in here as well. I Think she had the WA22 and LCD3 recently. GSX MK2 is supposed to be amazing with LCD3 but that might be out of your price range. 

 

If i had the money for a WA22, I would hold off, save a bit more and get the GSX.

I actually have the money for GSX, but I just cannot wait for 12 weeks. Thats too long for me. I know it is not right choice, but I am just not good at waiting especially for audio system.....

Pairing LCD-3 is very personal.  DG does not like it maybe it is the maxxed caps in there and overly wide soundstage on the BGs WA22.

 

I tried beta22, WA22, and WA5LE, they are all good.  There is no silver bullet for it and it also depends on the source you are feeding it.
