that is something you'll have to test out for yourself. Buy a pair of blue jean interconnects. I've heard the same thing many times but I have never tested it out. I have however tested various coax cables on my setup and I can tell you that there is a huge difference. I believe that most disbelievers either don't wanna spend the money or have buyers remorse

I've also never heard of power conditioners doing anything but helping a system. I'm currently using the monster power hts 1600.

(I don't like the new wiring. The jacket is hard and sometimes rubs against an object. The sound is picked up by the drivers.) My next may be the HD-650. I like the reviews I've seen. I think it's fun using a different set of headphones each day.

 

I'm drooling at a pair of Beyerdynamic T1 too. If you enjoy HD 650 with WA6SE, I suggest you give LCD-2 a go. Those things will sing till your eyes water in pure pleasure. I do enjoy many aspects of the HD 650, but compared to the LCD-2s they are getting wedgies on all parameters.

ha ha ha. Sorry man.  They are great interconnects but not high end at all.  Check audioquests price guide to see some truly high end interconnects. 

 

Depending on your setup though I think the King Cobra's are perfect. I myself wouldn't spend more than 10% of my amps value on interconnects. Just my rule of thumb though.

I've heard the LCD-3 is a big improvement over the LCD-2. Have you given it a listen? I'm also interested in the Fischer FA-011. I've read some good reviews and it has a great retro look to it. I can't seem to find it online right now. Sock is sold out except on E-Bay.

I guess for me it's high end. Rawdawg, what power cable do you use with your WA6se?

Thanks for the suggestion. I just found the hts 1600 on Amazon for $118.00. A nice looking unit!

I'm using audioquest NRG-X3 power cables for my woo and my stello DAC. If those aren't enough I'd check out Toxic cables. They have some awesome power cables.

I'm interested to know what your media source is. Also what DAC are you using?

Hello, WA6SE user here with stock tubes, Shuguang 274b + 6EW7.

Driving LCD2, W3000ANV & HD800 (previously owned) with good results. Very versatile amp.

*I use the LCD2 on the high impedance output, sounds much better...

No, unfortunately I have not been able to demo the LCD3s. I've heard that that LCD-3 is not that big of an improvement and I have heard the contrary – not sure what to believe anymore, but they need to be owned at one point or another regardless. :D

I have LCD-2 r.1 and WA6-SE too, I only own Shuguang 274B and various driver tubes now, and bass wise the GE 6DE7 dominates the 6EW7s badly. Those are pretty cheap too, so I'd get a pair to try it out. :)

Sorry for not getting back to you right away. I'm using an Oppo 95 as my source connected directly to my headphone Amp. Right now my amp is a Beyer A1. Jack just shipped the WA6se yesterday via UPS. I should have it by Wednesday.

Hi guys,

 

Sorry if I'm wrong here, but I didn't want to make a new thread just for this question.

 

I really like a deep warm sound. With nice bass.

 

I'm thinking of getting the HD800 and would like to buy a great amp. Which one would be better for my preferences?

 

The WA6 oder the WA6SE?

 

Sorry guys if I sound stupid but I'm new to this whole HiFi world :)

both would do fine with the HD 800, the WA6SE would drive them a bit better since a few ppl have said the WA6 seems to be a bit lacking at times.

 

have you considered the WA2 btw? its warmer sounding and works great with the HD 800s.

Thanks for your response!

 

I'll have a closer look at the WA2.
