Woo Audio WA3 or Schiit Valhalla?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

Which one? I'll be using it for every mid-fi can(up to Hifiman HE-500. Other then that, I won't be going any higher, any cans lower than that; apply them to helping me) I want the most tubey sound. TUBE TUBE TUBE! I have a ODAC for a DAC.

Neither for the HE500. Those amps are OTL and are best suited for high impedance headphones, and the HE500 is low impedance.

I have a O2 too. I should've mentioned this will be mainly used with a Beyer DT880 600 ohm.

I've had both the WA3 and Valhalla, and the Valhalla is the better amp.

Depends on the sonic signature you're looking for.  What are you looking for?

I should've said, I want it the complete opposite of my O2. So basically tubey. warm, and smooth. Well, thanks for all the help, hodgiy! WA3 it is.

I think the OP may have had the answer he wanted but I'm curious if anyone else has heard both...

What would someone recommend for the Senn HD 700? The Woo Wa3 or the Valhalla? Or maybe even the Lyr? I like treble heavy sound that isn't extremely smooth.

Any updated thoughts about the difference between the two.  If so please explain what you like and don't like about either.  I appear to be a beyer lover at the moment....  currently using the DT990.

 

 

Thanks for your thoughts.  OOK
