For Sale:
Woo WA5, MINT CONDITION, with upgrades...(SOLD) Thx Head-Fi!!!

Will Ship To: CONUS

 

Price just reduced from $3,875, shipped & insured UPS ground, wire, or paypal added to price. 

 

Good afternoon,

 

For sale is my beloved WA5, purchased customized and new from Jack Woo.  I can't tell you how much I enjoyed dealing with Jack, and plan to again one day.  

 

If you are not familiar with Woo or his work, you should know the build-out is phenomenal, attention to detail is beyond fanatical--it's beautiful.  The sound produced by the WA5 with the "premium parts upgrade" and the added volume control attenuator (stepped) and the addition of the sub-out, make this unit a mind blowing experience.  Nothing sounds cleaner, tigher or richer than Jack's work.

 

The WA5 contains all of the standard features and specifications with the addition of the Premium Package, and this is important as it makes a material difference in the unit and the sound it produces.   

 

PREMIUM PACKAGE UPGRADE INCLUDES:

  • V-Cap input coupling caps. Matched pair
  • Jensen voltage filtering caps, 220uf/450v
  • Blackgate bypass (6SN7 cathode) Caps, 220uf/160v
  • Blackgate bypass (6SN7 cathode) Caps, 220uf/160v
  • Blackgate bypass (300B cathode) caps, 470uf/160v
  • Jensen decoupling caps, 100u/500v

 

 

Price paid:

AW5                                     $3,150

Prem. Parts                              1,100

Volume Control Attenuator        215

Sub-out                                      200

Shipping                                    200

 

Total:          $4,865

 

web link to the unit on Jack Woo's site (http://www.wooaudio.com/products/wa5.html)

 

Everything is included, nothing missing and it will arrive in the custom-built wooden crates that the units were delivered to me in--and they are very tough and incredibly well-built to transport the units.  I also have the PDF's for the owner's manual and unpacking instructions, so you'll be off to a fine start.

 

I can't tell you how hard it is for me to part with this unit, but please know it was well cared for, and it's condition is reflective of this fact.  

 

It has less than 100 hrs of gentle use on it.  Realize the WA5 is in my personal office that is not often used--I travel extensively.  It remains covered and protected constantly.   

 

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire the most incredibly hand-made piece of audio art in existence.  It not only looks fantastic, but sounds angelic.

 

Please contact me with any questions.  

 

Kind Regards,

Nice Amp...   I'd get it if I wasn't getting ready to order the WA22 thats at the top of my budget. 

Wouldn't even have to ship it as I could just drive over from Dallas and pick it up... 

darn it all...

 

good luck with the sell...  looks great.

Thank you.

 

That would be convenient if you could make the jump.  It is an incredible unit, as are all of the Woo products.  You will be very happy with your WA22--enjoy it in good health.

 

Cheers~

Are the tubes stock?

Thanks for your interest in the Woo.

 

In having a custom unit built, I chose to upgrade the hard components on the unit, and add the premium package.  The unit comes with matched Electro-Harmonix, power triode, 300B's, and RCA 5AS4's.  

 

Jack Woo spent time selecting these tubes, and I can certainly endorse the warm sound they produce.  Adding Sophias to your back-up would be a nice addition, but only as an option, certainly not a necessity.  The unit sounds fantastic as it is.  Again, the upgraded package includes great components that you can feel, and hear.  

 

Regards,

 

William~
