That is the reason it was a question not an assumption

Looking forward to the tests with Balanced Armature IEMs. Actually, that's the only reason why I stay away from tubes for now.

The unbalanced version is definitely on my wish list. I'm torn between the Sonett and one of the s/e Woos.

Nice review!
I quite like the DNA Sonett. Spent some time with it at the Stockholm meeting last year.

In response to PP's post above, Sonett beat out my beloved WA6SE -  simply more refined.






nice to know it is better than wa6se, so i can assume it will be much better thanmy current wa6. Any one compare it with wa22?

I know sound performace could not be judged by it's cost. So I would also curious if the DNA is competitive with the WA22 in terms of sound for almost double the price.

I'm curious to find out myself too, that is the reason I'm going to pick up a balanced one soon.

Hope both would have good synergy with your PWD.

I will let you know next weekend. I should have the balanced Sonett early next week and the PWD scheduled to delivery on Thursday.  WA22, not in the near future as I took a detour to try the Sonett first.

 

I have high hope on the Sonett, "punkaroo"'s amazing review and "peanutheat" did said it is better than his WA6SE.  If it synergy well with my HD800, I may end up selling my PWD and and get gamma2 again to save a few bucks.

Looks like I'm going to buy one. All I can say is, damn you, but in a way that I'll later thank you for

I may end up both Sonett and WA22, but not until the stock market recover or later this year.

Sure, you may see a headliner on Boston newspaper that a wife killed her husband by smashing his head with an expensive headphone amp in the future.

If I buy ONE MORE THING, you'll see a Toronto headline with the same!
