woo competition? - Page 3

post #31 of 72
Exactly, which is why I was sure to put "to a lesser extent" in my reply. Haven't heard both, but I am certainly enjoying my DV =) I would be surprised if they weren't competitive to one another. I know that neither LD or DV makes anything in the upper price categories of Woo, but on the "lesser extent" low end, they are major competitors.

Price isn't everything, too. I wouldn't be surprised if the LD MK VIII could beat the Woo 6SE.

Never, forget it! Only a Woo can beat a Woo.

Did you ever heard a WA6SE or other Woo's amp to have a comparison with this statement?

Are you kidding? I would be shocked if the Little Dot MKIII sounded as good as a Woo WA3, their least expensive amp

I don't think that would be all that surprising as the MKIII is $194 while the Woo 3 is $470. You more than double the cost and you can usually make a better amp XD Think rough price equivalency.

not that point-to-point is always necessarily better, but aren't the Little Dots PCB?

Yes, the Little Dot's are PCB's. Point to point is much better as far as durability, and a service standpoint. PCB's make it much quicker and easier for the manufacturer to get their product finished. Sound wise I couldn't tell you if there's a difference.

I'm not kidding, and I didn't say the MK III (3), I said the MK VIII (8), their new balanced amp.
But I haven't heard either and I just think that the price of Woo amps are higher because they are USA made.

I had a Woo6 for awhile. It was a little cheaper than the Sound Quest I'd owned before, but the Sound Quest was better across the board. The Sound Quest was also seriously quieter (no transformer buzz at all) and had a lot more drive.

The one you listed (if the link is correct) with the list price $1,249 should be in the same league of WA6SE which cost lower at $1,050 stock without any up-grade. In my experience with a WA6SE, I've never heard any hiss, hum or transformer buzz at all even with the volume all the way up.

Did you ever email Jack for the buzzing issue to be resolved?

Also note to scientifically prove one is better than the other in hearing tests, the test must be double blind to rid bias, have high sample size, be balanced, randomized and be replicated to fully distinguish which is the most prefered and better sounding amp.

Until that happens, no one can scientifically reject the null hypothesis that both lil dot mk tubes and entry level woos sound different in any way.

XD

alright i'm just trolling

HeadAmp and Ray Samuels Audio I would assume, as lets electrostatic energizer wise.
