WEE - new product from Woo Audio - Page 4

post #46 of 165

Oh man... I am seriously excited for this. I inherited an ampless pair of Stax 'phones a while back but haven't had the time / $$$ to get them up and running.

 

This opens up a whole new can of amp/cable worms - it's going to be fun to experiment with various combinations . I wonder how things will sound with a 500wpc PS Audio amp vs. Manley Stingray vs. NAD 3020 etc...

Did you use the prototype unit? If it is true then is a good news. Because the pre-production unit is better.

Seamaster – I think Jack Woo perfectly know what he does and I think he is going present very serious device for all who own one excellent amp for loudspeakers or electrodynamic headphones and this person want „join“ electrostats - STAX.

Matter fact, you guys are right about the purpose of WEE

Not that I can afford any of this level of gear, but if it turns out to be a winning combination sonically the WA5 + WEE would seem like a bit of a "Holy Grail" rig - dynamics, speakers, electrostatics - it would do them all. Add a Meier Stage DAC to the set up for cross feed and that could be my ideal set up… One day maybe...

I'm sorry if this has been covered, but do the speaker outputs on the WEE get muted when the unit is on?

Yes. The switch on the faceplate allows you to mute/un-mute speaker output.

Well from today I am a new owner of a nearly new STAX 007MKII, but without a amp, I think I will give the WEE a try so I  have nearly place an order. I have asked about the possibillity

Congrats and welcome to the forum thewhale.. 

 

I have to ask, who are you asking about the possibility?  Jack or your wife?

 

Cheers,

This is a fairly interesting concept, how would the "best" of the speaker amps running a WEE to stax compare to dedicated stax amps... I know that my unmodded stax transformer box running off an average speaker amp sounds woeful...

 

Any info on the transformers that you are using Jack? are they custom?

post #58 of 165

Which stax transformer box do you have?

 

I'm pretty sure getting a dedicated amp would be best.

post #59 of 165

Seems expensive for a transformer box ... isn't it?

Eugenius – it depends on exchange relation between dollar and your national curency. This device is not only simple exchange of signal, there are used serious high quality components and concept. First generation is more pricy because the development and research (prototypes) does the cost for Jack Woo, but after building of serious number devices the price can go down. I think, it is great idea that Jack is interested on device like this one.
