Unfortunately the transformer seems to be required for Grados.

Life would be so much easier (more choices) if Grados paired well with OTL amps!

I found the LD MKIII matched well with Grados. WA6 is better though but I don't think that's all attributed to the transformer in the WA6.

Love my Grados with the WA2.  No transformer needed;)

That's good to hear! More options required.

The WA2 is certainly a great choice, especially if you have a range of cans to use, but would you buy it only for Grados?

Still waiting on the Ear+, it is in Lloyds possession, but haven't heard anything as far as it being shipped back, and I've only been teased by the RS/Ear+ combo since I only had it for a short time and it wasn't working properly. I'm sure glad that I have the LD1+ which I've been listening to with the 80' and the 325's, and have been really enjoying them together. I haven't even listened to the RS's since I sent the Ear+ back, I'm waiting just to hear them together again so I have a really nice experience for myself when I receive it. Enjoy!!!


the old delaying gratification !

i'm horrible at it !! i want what i want, and i want it yesterday lol

Looking at that beautiful WA2 on the Woo site, it appears to have output transformers on each side of what I assume is the main power transformer in the middle. Just like my Quicksilver and Sonic Frontiers speaker amps. Yet it says it's OTL. Do tell about it!

Same here, I have my MkIII tube setup with my sacd player and my SS Headroom computer setup with a Modi dac.  I have my 325i on the tube setup and my 225i on the computer, which I am listening to at the moment. They both sound really good, I don't feel I am missing much no matter which one I listen to.

I like both tube and solid state...it is just all about the right synergy that floats your boat...whatever that takes.

those would be the power transformers. They don't really affect the tone like an output transformer.

Yes!  There are not too many artists nowadays that can top Warren Haynes with his talent.  There are others that I can't forget, though.  Joe Banamassa., Stevie Ray Vaughn, Clapton, Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, and the list goes on ...

 

On the Grados, I really tend to love acoustic guitars, though.  The string detail really comes through well.

I agree, Warren Hayes is top notch!
