    The Accidental WA5-LE Owner

    I started out a few months ago thinking that I'd buy a relatively inexpensive headphone amp, I had in mind a budget of about US$500. After looking around I came across the WA7, so I upped the budget a little.  Then I found out that the WA7 had a tube power supply (WA7tp), so up went the budget a...

    WOO WA5 LE vs Mapletree MAD Super HD

    I have owned the MAD Super HD for the last 18 months, I run a high end analog system through it, using Senn HD 800 and have been very happy with it. I am however thinking of upgrading to the WA5 LE with parts upgrade etc. I can now afford to do this as I have sold off my Cary 805 Anniversary...

    WA5LE Maxxed or Not

    WA5-LE vs. RSA B-52

    I am searching for the best amp for HD800. I had Luxman P-1u but I sold it. P-1u was a very good amp but my headphone system was far away from what my speaker setup can do. That is why I sold P-1u and now searching for better amp.   My source has two outputs - one balanced and one...

    Woo Audio WA5 Initial Impressions

    I was originally looking at purchasing a Woo WA5 last August but at the time was put off by the high shipping cost and the fact that I would have also wanted the parts upgrade and better tubes which would have pushed the cost out to around 6k inc. shipping so I opted for a Red Wine Audio...

    Review/Opinion, LCD-3, HE6, Liquid Fire and WA5LE.

    After comparing my two rigs using the LCD-3's, Liquid Fire and WA5LE with my Realiser in and out of the loop, there is a big difference in how these two amps sound using the LCD-3's. Using my Liquid Fire I would say that the LCD-3's are somewhat like the D7000's with there heavy bass attack...

    Help me decide: Woo WA5LE, Cavalli Liquid Fire, Apex Peak/Volcano or ?

    Before I left the headphone scene a few years ago, I was running a WA5LE with Sennheiser HD800 and Beyerdynamic T1, and then a HE-6 straight into a BAT VK55 speaker amp.  I miss it and want to set up another system.  I enjoyed the ortho and am looking at getting either the LCD-2r2 or HE-500...

    HD800 + $1,000-$2,500 Amp = Sonic Bliss?

    Hi,   I had an earlier post last week where I was asking about tube amps for an HD800.  But I have been thinking a bit more broadly about it and considering also solid state or hybrid amplifiers as well. The thought for a tube amp was because so many experienced HD800 users preferred them, and...

    How do 300B, 2A3, 45 sound in comparison to each other?

    I'm trying to tie down which amp I will pursue next after I compare the LCD-3 and HD800.  Stereotypically what is the sound of the above tubes in transformer coupled amps?  Amps wise I'm considering the Woo WA5LE, DNA Stratus and EC 2A3.  Also let me know if I've missed any in that similar price...

    ECC32 Tube Addicts

    I am trying to identify the various types the ECC32 were made and user feedback when used instead of the 6SN7. They are not equivalent to the 6SN7 as they draw more current, so please be careful, check with the amp maker before you try them. This list may be inaccurate and incomplete, please...

    Tube amps with a 'cold'/'bright' sound?

    Usually tube amps are said to sound warm/dark/mellow...etc...   Are there any that buck this trend by offering an analytical/cold/bright almost solid-state sounding presentation?   I heard that Apex Audio may do this, but have yet to hear it.

    Cavalli Liquid Fire + HD800?
