x2. Love the look of the WA7 and always wanted Woo. Currently running HE500 Bifrost/Lyr and would love some opinions on the WA7 with the HE500 or Senn HD700 especially comparing to the Schiit stack.
HE 500 + WA 7
In short one of the sweetest combos around .
I can't make any direct comparison to the Schiit stack mentioned.
Compared to my Violectric V181 Yulong D18 combo the WA7 is a strong performer.
The 181 D18 set is very powerful and accurate with a strong clean sound as you would expect from high quality solid state equipment.
In comparison the WA7 while also powerful and accurate lends an element of emotion to the sound which is missing in the solid state set.
Among the particular strengths of the WA7 HE500 combination are an improvement to the HE500 sound stage, very strong bass and mid range and excellent instrument separation.
I think the real winner in the WA7 HE500 set is tone, the subtle variations in timbre that makes one artist average and another great are front and centre with this combo.
Just ordered a pair of Beyer T1 to go with the tube WA7 at home whenever it gets here... the wait is killing me. I have never had a tube amp before and am super curious how these two combos will compare.
Would love to hear peoples impressions of these combos and predictions on sound differences. Which combo wins? Cost is pretty much the same either way...
I had a chance to listen to the WA7 and T1 together a few weeks ago at SSI and was blown away. I have not heard the HUDA so cannot comment on that, but I can tell you that you're in for a real treat. Of all the stuff I heard at SSI this year (speakers and headphones) that combo was very near the top of my list. I got in a few hours before the show officially opened and had the entire headphone room below to myself. There was also a separate Woo Audio room with some really nice gear as well.
You have even longer to wait. I ordered Feb 4th and I still don't have mine either.
Did your invoice include an estimated shipping date?
I ordered mid March and both Jack and my invoice states an estimated shipping date of early April. Looks like I have a long wait ahead of me =x
