+1.  The world would be too boring if we were all the same.  What's there to talk about, right? ;)

Listening to Hotel California from the album Hell Freezes Over never ceases to amaze me on how spacious the soundstage of these cans actually is. And I'm using only the WA3 :p

The WA3 does at least 90% of the WA2's job, IMO.

How is the WA5 for the HD800?

 



The hd800 + Wa5 is incredible.

I wasn't impressed...

Daniel, have you found anything better than the ZDSE for the HD800's?

Nothing in my profile comes close. The Leviathan will deliver in spades though-my end game amp. I also am planning on a Ragnarok as an ss option-here's hoping it pairs with the HD800 better than the MJ.

There are a lot of SS options for the 800, I have been wanting a high end ss to compliment my Woo, but I just don't know which yet.

 

It's a good thing and a bad thing.  :p

When you figure one out, please share.  I am going into the same direction soon. :D

If trying to stay around the WA2's price, Bryston BHA-1, or wait for Ragnarok to be finished and see what consensus is with HD800 pairing.

I read an article on audio360, which said, the Lehmann Audio Linear has a good synergy with the HD800, but I have not personally heard this combo.

M-Stage HPA-2 is a clone of this amp and supposedly offers similar sound at less than 1/5 the price. ($280 vs $1500)
