For Sale or Trade:
[AUS] Woo Audio WA6se + upgrade tubes (See Description)
Will Ship To: Anywhere
The amp up for sale here is my long-time favourite WA6se of the latest version (I even bought it twice) from Woo Audio with a bunch of upgrade tubes including some of the official recommended as well as some of those special/customised ones that I collected to keep (check the photos). FYI, from what I read on the forums, this is the amp which Woo keeps using for tuning.
The amp itself is in near immaculate (if not absolutely immaculate) condition from what I am able to see (a great amount of photos attached for a better description). It is nicely put together like a twin tank and works perfectly with very cosy & relaxing sound signatures. Some of the parts are made of very fine and premium material(aluminium alloy) I have only seen on very hi-end gear, like the volume knob for instance. I have been back and forth for quite a while on deciding whether or not I should keep this as it actually pairs very nicely with most of current gear. For some of them, this is remarkably good (such as LCD3s, HD800s as well as SA5000). It is a big step up from WA6 I used to own which I found myself enjoy it quite a bit. The thing which pulled the last trigger for the sale was not because I just upgraded to WA22 (well, WA6se may lack a bit of dynamic comparing to the WA22, tho it does sound much smoother and less punchier especially when pairing with low impedance cans such as Sony Z7 or Fostex Th900), it was manly due to the balanced output on my source as well as the balanced plugs on some of my other recently acquired headphones. Having said that, I might still regret on selling this and probably would get my hand back on it later for the third time.
The amp is currently retailed for AUS$1839 from A2A (http://www.addictedtoaudio.com.au/product/woo-audio-wa6-special-ed-headphone-amplifier), and the tubes cost over AUS$500, so it is basically a 45%+ discount for the whole set.
The amp is from a somke and pets free home located in Sydney, which has already been packed and is ready to be post/picked up. Cash on pick-up (AUS$1300, excl. any commission fees if applicable) is as always preferred. Otherwise, please PM me for a quote on shipping.
