The WA22 walked all over the LF for me. Others have had better luck but the one I had was dry, not terribly focused or resolving and just overall passive sounding. Of the 5? amps compared it was the worst and most expensive. And the case work was just brutal not to mention ugle as sin. So um ya not a fan :D
The WA22 and B22 were pretty similar and share the same fault... they're both a little rounded on edge and tilted towards the bottom giving them both a dark character in comparison to neutral or even natural. But in this case the fault isn't a show stopper and the asking price is fair given the other qualities and case work.
I'm just hoping the Peak isn't also under built because I'm selling my drum kit and won't need another bell. Inside joke that might make sense if you search long enough :D
So did you get the HD800s yet? Talk about a total mess up by Canada Post.
As another data point regarding amps...Solude's WA22 was my WA22 (with my favourite LCD-2/3 complimentary of tubes) and while it was amazing with my LCD-3s, my opinion is that the Liquid Fire with a quad of Siemens E88CC tubes is no doubt the better amp in every way (except for looks of course as the WA22 is on sexy amp).
FWIW, I own both the LCD-3s and HD800s and both are my top 2 favourite headphones. That said, I prefer the LCD-3s and end up listening to them more often. If you listen to classical music, I'd recommend the HD800s, if you listen to rock/metal, I'd go LCD-3s.
