Yes. Congratulations on choosing one of the best amplifiers in this sector of the market.

How do you think it will go with the w5000. I sent violectric a email also to ask that question

I've never heard the W5000. Perhaps some of the other folks in the thread have.

This thread seems pretty active so hopefully someone can answer it.  Talked to Art by email and he even answered within an hour on a saturday evening.  Unreal.  He said with the warm attributes of the amp it should sound good.  He said they have a 15% spring sale going on so it is 928.00 shipped.  Not too bad.

I like the V200 with the AT woodies. I've heard most of em at one time or another and V200 goes very well - warm and slightly smooth to offset their occasional brightness, and a bit of extra oomph to help them not sound thin. I think you'll be pleased.

Looking for a dac under 500 to pair with audeze el 8 and v200s. Any suggestion?

If you can snag a Parasound Zdac, that could be a good match. The V2 model is $549 but a lot of places had the original model on clearance for a low price. Not sure if they are still available by now though.

Other options might be the iFi stuff and the NuPrime uDSD.

Thanks for the quick response! Which ifi product would you recommend? Is it efficient enough to run the audeze el 8

I haven't kept up with the latest models of theirs, so I'm not sure which is which these days. But I did forget to mention the Resonessence Labs Herus - that's one I absolutely recommend with the setup you described. You could even take it on the go if you ever travel and want a transportable setup.... bring along a laptop or maybe just your phone, the Herus, and the EL-8. It wouldn't sound as good as when the V200 is in the chain, but it would still be very enjoyable.
