ever so slightly at the moment, but i think with better driver's, i will prefer the WA2 or it will be a tie. both are very close in performance, just different sounding.
this review by baka1969 explains what i'm trying to say much better, it also is specific to the HD 800!
with the WA2, i use the TS 5598, JAN-Sylvania 7308, and RFT EZ80 tubes, the sound is VERY Good with HD 800s, but theres still a bit of detail and dynamics missing from the WA2 that the WA6-SE has, however, the tonality, warmth, and smoothness is just what i'm looking for.
with the WA6-SE, i either use 596 and 6GL7 or EML5U4G and 6FD7. both are more detailed and open sounding vs. the WA2, but they're just a tad to bright at times, just by a little.
gonna try 6SN7 on WA6-SE soon (gotta find adapter), and maybe some better drivers on the WA2 (siemens, amperex, or mullard NOS tubes). im sure they'll just keep getting better!
