Hard to say, isn't it? LOL. Probably in the $300 range, probably not the $600 or $1000 range, although I've heard of some really good ones at that range.

 

iMac with Audirvana Plus to WA7 to HD800 at the moment, so I guess that would be entry-level on the front-end.

Nice setup. I'd say that you don't have to go completely crazy with a high-end USB cable. I'm using an AQ Carbon USB cable from my MBP to my DAC and its a really nice. The AQ Coffee gets great reviews too, but when you go up to the AQ Diamond USB the law of diminishing returns kicks in hard.

Props to Woo for the sale.

 

But my main question is, why does the prices seem kind of marked up?

 

Why was the WA6 and WA3 both for $600 for a substantial period of time, and then suddenly for the 10% sale, the WA6's mark down price is coming from $699 to $629

 

Even the WA2, was originally $1050( i believe for a long period of time)

 

Unless these amps are coming with updates tubes or circuits or something, I'm not really sure what's going on here.

They aren't marked up, the prices have been stable for at least six months, judging by what I paid for my amps.

I was just checking the Woo site and I don't see their CD transport anywhere.  Does anyone know if they discontinued it?

Didn't think they discontinued it, picked one up from Addicted to Audio just last month. They were saying how Jack changed the new ones to sony mechanisms and how much of an improvement it was too.

I heard same, in fact I was told a Woo transport was on its way out to Aus, maybe they are updating their product page.

Being totally OCD I noticed that one of the volume knobs ws slightly higher than the other so after loosening off the grub screws & a bit of adjustment got it just about right, course that means it will probably get fiddled with again.

 

On another note, I have been stuck with 3 expensive Cards Clear Beyond power cables terminated with AUS plugs, course the Shunyata has US outlets so they have sat unused for 2 weeks or so. Tried them today with a cheap power board and that wasn't good, sounded bright and harsh so what to do. 

 

Bought 3 AUS to US plug convertors and voila, course the bit about being an idiot for not thinking of it earlier occurred to me on the way home. Sounds much better now.....

 

Funny the obsession about things like that.

yeah, unfortunately.  WTP-1 had a strong following even though music servers are growing rapidly.  We made the decision to reserve our remaining inventory of parts to support units that are already in use today; instead of using those parts to make more units for sale.
