Hi Jack.  I just had a few questions about your new ToTL amp.  

 

1-Is the amp going to be parafeed?
 
2-Will it be using an El gapped core?
 
3-What's the DC on the core?
 
4-The rated power?
 
5-What are the primary and secondary resistances?
 
6-Do you have leakage and primary inductance figures?
 
Thanks jack!

Mono-block headphone amps! The ability to roll three different tube types is a nice touch. I'm wondering if there will be a price difference between the pre/headphone and headphone/speaker versions.

I saw that to and did a double take. "$10,000..." I thought but then knowing the guys at Woo Audio it's going to be a knockout for sure!

A monoblock headphone amp/preamp that weighs a total of 120 pounds and costs $10K? Did I get that right? If so, seems nutty.

Sounds like a great competitor for the apex pinnacle.

Nothing about the very high end of audio isn't nutty! My speakers weigh 300 pounds each. I am sure the vast majority of the worlds population considers that nutty, but around here, it's just a pair of speakers biggrin.gif

My issue with this amp is that for $10K I can get a mint pair of McIntosh MC1201 1,200 watts monoblocks for my speaker system which I've been wanting for some timevery_evil_smiley.gif

Can't the W234 double as a speaker amps too? This is good if you have high efficiency speakers. Now my question is: will this amp be able to make use of the supercharged 300B tubes such as the KR842VHD and EML 300BXLS?

 

Also it's my preference to place each mono block amp near each speaker; so if I set it up that way I'll be running a funky wiring arrangement in headphone mode.

"Two versions will be offered:

 

1. A headphone and pre-amp
2. A headphone and speaker amp"

120 LBS for both chassis is WAAAY too heavy for a headphone amp!  I had a WA5 and it was a complete and utter pain to ship them if they need repaired or if they are re-sold.
