Ouch, 1.5 years !, I will never recommend too, imagine if you have to repair, waiting time will be what ? double/triple. ? someone should know.

Wow, I just tried the HD800 from my S3 unamped and they actually sounded very nice. I expected them to sound really bad, but that was not the case at all. The whole sound is somewhat unfocussed and blurry but still extremely impressive.

Sorry I misquoted its about a 14 months. Not 16 sorry. I have heard it and its nice. But I do have a woo Wes with all,the tubes upgraded . In the end I might just sell,it as new when I get it.
Anyway if it worker to break I do not think you would wait very long. As he does have a very good reputation in this business. I just would never wait this long for anything again.

For the wa22, IMO even more so than the tubes, I think a transparent balanced DAC also makes hd800 much better sounding than using the rca SE line in. For the tubes, I find even just replacing the 6080 power tubes will give you great improvement. Listening to stock tube paired with a poor SE DAC could be unimpressive...

I agree the wa 22 must be used in balance mode
To sound the best. Anyone who uses it in SE has no idea how much they are loosing

Maybe Dubsteps girls impressions were in single ended. I remember she didn't really like it too much even though she had the best tubes possible. If I remember correctly she said that is was a little lean in the lower registers which is one of the reasons that I was put off getting it.

Dubstep also used the HE6 with it. So I am not so sure about any of it.

I recall Dubstep preferred wa2 (single ended) over wa22 as wa2 has more bass and is a better value... with Woo personally I much preferred wa22 balanced, and also over wa5le (don't remember what tube it had when I demo) with hd800.
