Are they essentially the same in term of driving headphones (such as HD800)? The difference between them is that WA5 can drive K1000 and some high efficient speakers? Thank you in advance.

- Pros:“Powerful and affordable”“Powerful, clean output with slight warmth, small footprint, value for money, drives most headphones, nice connectability with E7”
- Pros:“Good across the frequency range, Live Sounding, Full ”“Exciting, bold sound with great bass, engaging mids, and mostly smooth highs, ”
Yes, the only difference is that the WA5 has speaker terminals. Those speaker terminal are only worth the money if you own or plan on buying speakers that are very easy to drive (at least 90 dB sensitivity, preferably higher) or listen to speakers at low volume levels.
