Fun weekend ahead, congrats!!
This may not be the right forum, but has anyone had a chance to compare the Stratus with the Woo WA5? Both DHT SE amps. I had a chance to listen to both at the last NY meet, and both sounded great, but it was difficult to suss out differences with different sources, music, crowd noise, etc.
I have heard the WA5 at a number of meets and actually planned to buy it before I heard about the Stratus. Once I heard the Stratus and tested it with different phones, I knew that was the amp for me. The combination of sound, size, price, and flexibility got me. The truth is both amps are great in their own way and are more similar then different. The bottom line is I love my Stratus and have zero regrets about my purchase.
Looks like the package got delayed and the Stratus is now scheduled for delivery on Monday. Probably the winter system moving through the midwest. No biggie though, I am right now listening to Donald's original Sonett with my HD800 and I am loving it! i am dumbfounded that there isn't more traffic on the Sonett 2 thread. Frankly, I believe that the original Sonett is an amazing match with the HD800, and the only reason it isn't on the SumitFI threads is its price. Too bad. OK, off my soap box. I am really looking forward to hearing the Stratus in my system with my music. Donald's work is great.
i just an email from Donald that my local FecEx shop is holding my package! I am picking it up as soon as I can -- def this weekend! THANKS Donald for the heads up! I would not have bothered if you have not emiled me since the ETA on FedEx site said Monday, when i checked this AM EST. This weekend is gonna be great!
Whoa.... So I got a Stratus early this year... I loved it. It was my favorite amp. By far.
I've listened to everything on it and fell in love with it from the start.
Then yesterday happened...
I got Sony MDR-R10 pair #0153 yesterday and these things have righteously blown my friggin mind.
My set-up is...MacbookProRetina=>Audirvana=>PSAudio PW MKII=>Anticable l.4 interconnects=>DNA Stratus=>MDR-R10
Every song I have is ripped or from HDtracks...and the sound is simply amazing.
The headphones i have currently are the W3000ANV, DX1000, D7000 and the HE-6...haha yes I live closed headphones, and No I have never owned the TH900 or any Audezes
I believe I ordered in August and I should be taking delivery any week now. So 4-5 months in my case.
