I'm officially new here, but have been reading you all for a while. Since apparently no one here has reported on this, I'll share the info I've gathered as a token of my gratitude for the information you've all given me through your posts...
I was in the market for a new headphone amp and was about to order a WA5 from Jack, when I stumbled upon this (http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue55/wooaudio.htm) interview where he announces a mysterious new amp.
I was intrigued to say the least, so I emailed Jack about it. Here is what he told me :
(nb : I present this to you with Jack's authorization )
- "The new amp is our new flagship amp that surpass any current models. In fact, it is unprecedented in the industrial. We don’t have a released date and the pricing yet. I hope it will be done in 2 months and the price expected to be $8000 - $10,000. If this is the price you can work with, it is worthwhile to wait."
- "It drives both speakers (8 watts) and any headphones. It is the world first mono block headphone and speaker amp with many innovations. We will make announcement when the prototype complete in a month."
- "The best secrets are yet to announce. We plan to showcase it in Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Oct or somewhere earlier."
Needless to say, I haven't ordered the WA5 and my name is on the waiting list for this new model.
Now we can relish in anticipation ! ;)...
PS. According to the interview, other interesting things are on the way : a Woo Audio Headphone and a DAC/CD transport
but I haven't enquired about them.
