Just curious, rather spend the money on upgrading the amp.


I was going to buy one to try out, but never did get the chance to.

Pretty happy with my WA22 now, used to be a speaker guy but the WA22 + HD 800 haven't let me switch on my speakers for couple of weeks now. Maybe next year I will follow you on the Glenn 300B path depending on how favourable your impressions are when you get one :L3000:

Don't get me wrong, the WA22 is a great amp for HD800. I had it for over three years, only selling it to fund the WA5LE. After I aquired the WA5LE, my work is too busy for me to keep it as paper weight. At time point, I have not turn it on for over a month.

Didn't know you had WA5LE, it not in your sign. I thought you were going for Glenn's 300B amp. Is the WA5LE more dynamic / less tubey than the WA22 , does it have better low end slam / extension ?
