beyer A1/ wooaudio Wa2

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, i make this thread because i need some help.

I gonna buy the Beyer T1, and i'm now hesistating between two possibilities :

1st one : buy a second-hand Wa2 + beyer T1

2nd one: buy an unused T1 and an used beyer A1.

both possibilities are aprox. the same price, but i don't realy like to buy 2nd hand headphones. Cause of reliability , no waranty ect..

 

brief, my question is this one : is there a real differance between the Wa2 and A1 ( i know the Wa2 is a bit better with the T1 )

But is this differance between these two amps realy obvious or easily audible?

I thank you for help me.
Cordially.

 

Umm.... server lagged , or my computer lagged so hard..

sorry for triple post :/

Why no warranty on used phones? Beyer has international warranty AFAIR and 5 years even, if I remember correctly.

Well when I had the A1, I found it to be dry, harsh and analytical. Ironically it reminded me of the O2! It could have been my source too though, because I was using a DAC1 at the time. You can't go wrong with the synergy between WA2 and T1, I just don't like the price and cost of tubes, so I haven't picked up a WA2 yet biggrin.gif.

I used the A1 in my first audition with the T1; while solid state amps seem to have more "impact" to the sound, I find that the resultant sound isn't as refined as a tube amp such as the WA2.

 

I've been using the T1 and WA2 combo (with some tube rolling) for a few months now and I highly recommend it. 

 

One minor gripe I have with tube amps is that they don't really synergise well with pop/beats-laden music. Solid state excels in this area. (I use the amp-out on my NFB-12.1 sometimes.)
