New Woo Audio Product at CanJam RMAF 2012 - Page 2

Beautiful piece of product design, as we've come to expect from Woo.

How much $$!

Sleek. A real departure from the woo "tank-like" aesthetic. The plexi or lexan top is interesting. And begs the question how this works in such close proximity to the warm tubes.
So, single-ended... What is the rectification, then? Solid state?

If this thing is $500 or less; I am buying it right away.

Definitely interested, price pending and feature pending. And of coourse performance depending. A Woo amp with an SS rectifier/power stage would be fantastic since i hate messing with power tubes, if I could use it with my WDS-1 instead of the built-in DAC. Assuming in terms of price/performance it stacks up well to it's older siblings! The encased tubes are a thing of beauty! biggrin.gif

They're saying it rivals the WA6, so my guess somewhere around $400-$600. If I had to narrow down an estimate, I'd say maybe $549?

I'm seeing the HD 800 in these photos and seriously can't help but wonder what this little guy sounds like with one of Sennheiser's flagships.
