Too much for my current need and not enough time to listening to justify keeping it.

Try the WA3. biggrin.gif

It genuinely staggers me on how the vast majority of Head-Fi's population steers away from the WA3. I'm using it to drive HD800 and T1 with Tung Sol 7236 & Tesla 7DJ8 and IMO sounds very good for the money.

It was going to be my first amp, but then a second hand WA2 came up for sale very close to me (and on the same side of the border) so ...

Hummm, from WA5LE to WA3? Interesting idea.

im very close to buying a used WA5... I'm excited, since I can compare to my experiences with wa22, wa6-se, and wa2

if it disappoints, I'll look into Stratus or Glenn 2a3/300b

It will be very interesting to hear another opinion on WA5/hd800. I wonder which you will prefer for the HD800 alone? 

 

You can tell us what you believe to be the best Woo for HD800 regardless of price. Will it top - GSXMK2/HD800?

Just make sure you use the right tubes and not the stock ones. I have EML 300B Mesh, TSBGRP 6F8G and 596 on my LE and sounds great.

X2, my WA22 with right tubes sounded better than WA5LE with stock tube. Once you rolled in upgraded tubes, WA5LE is different animal. Missed my WA5LE...
