post #10816 of 18525

Received the WA6 today, and just started listening to it about 20 minutes ago with the RS1i's at a nice low volume. Sound sweet right out of the box, but from what I've read from Woo Audio, it needs about 150+ hrs to really shine, but I'm enjoying it right now anyway. One thing is for sure, this thing is built like a tank and nicely done, and has some weight to it.

I'm sorry, I knew  you were getting the Wadia and I thought that I had congratulated you, but then again I may have been in shock reading this, LOL!!!

I just read how you are loving it with the RS's and the LCD's, enjoy!!!

It's been about a half hour or so and I'm listening to Smooth Jazz (instrumental), and the amp already sounds sweet, can't wait to put some time on it.

BTW, I've been busy, can't remember if you ordered the Bushmills?

No apologies needed at all, just good to see you pitching WOO!
No, no bushmills, money all gone now! Lol

None for me either, and I did have the opportunity being I found out early the morning they went on sale. It was very hard not to buy them, but then I figured I really don't need them, being I'm fortunate to already have what I have, plus the money I spent on the WA6.

I'm drooling over the WA6. I've wanted to try one for quite awhile. Too rich for me though.

Dude, your Wadia > RS1 will be VERY sweet no doubt...enjoy! I always liked the Wadia 170 transport stacked on the DAC/Amp!

:beerchug:

 

Funny you should mention that you have a whole container of HPA-2s, because I'm a heavy machinery operator at the port of Montréal, and Stacker45 comes from, 45 TON container stacker, wich is the type of machine that I work on. I have been a Longshoreman for 28 years, so you can imagine that I have seen my share of containers. ;)

anyway, gonna try to slow down now, play it cool...... (i know, i already blew that) lol

 

I know what you mean, in the last few weeks, I have bought way too much stuff, starting with Parbaked's HPA-2, a new turntable cover, and Grado's new woodies, just to name a few.

This is one of my two favorite hobbies, so I don't do much else, so I figured I'd get myself a highly regarded amplifier (from reading Head-FI) to go along with the RS1i's, and its probably too rich for me also, but I'll have it for forever (as long as that is), so I went for it, and I've been listening now for about 3hrs, and I have no regrets, at all!!! If you ever get the chance to listen to one, don't, or you will find a way to buy one, and this is only my first impressions. I also own the LD1+ with Voskhod 6J1P-EV tubes and BB-2107 OP-AMP, along with the Schiit Magni/Modi combo and their all nice sounding amps IMO, so really no need to drool, I enjoy them just as much, enjoy!!!

Oh, I totally get it. I have too many hobbies and none are cheap...that's my problem. Photography, cycling (road and mountain), archery, CrossFit, car audio, headphones...all money pits. That and I don't make a load of money at my job...haha...if I could whittle it down to just one or two I'd be in good shape...lol

Now, you'll have me looking for another one just to try.  I had my paired with the Onyx CD player (also made by Music Hall).  Good times.

 

Edit: The Music Hall 25.2 that I had was the integrated amp.  But, I see they have a 25.2 DAC too.  Hmm ...

Oh cool! You have to get yourself another one! I really wish I had the cash (and the baggage space!) to have just gotten the PS500 and Music Hall right then and there. Supporting the local guys AND getting something seriously competent.

Great playlist. Just saw Joe Walsh (w/the Eagles) a few weeks back and now see what an awesome writer/singer he is. His stuff is even better live than in recordings. And he sounds great even 30+ years on.
