    Cary 300SEI and Woo Audio WA5 (or LE), any impressions?

    Hello,   Can anyone comment on these two integrateds? I'm trying to feel my way in and through the world of 300b SET. I've had my eye on these two amps for some time, but I'm not even sure if the difference between them is a matter of taste or quality. A stock WA5 is about half the price of...

    My Review of the Woo Audio 5

      A little over a month ago, I contacted Jack Wu and asked him I would be able to audition one of his amps.  I was happy to find out that he actually had a demonstration Woo Audio 5 that he’d be willing to ship to me.   You don’t need to be around head-fi’s forums for more than a day to know...

    Are DACs for headphones the same ones used by speakers?

    I could not find this anywhere, but can DACs we use for our headphones also be used with speakers, or do speakers have a different market of DACs? I know a lot of times speakers are connected to a receiver which has a DAC built in, but are receivers the only option for speakers? I ask because if...

    WA5 without XLR but not LE :)

    Hi all,   I'm back from the dead :) I haven't been on here for a few years cause I was quickly running out of money (sound familiar?). Well, I saved enough to where I can afford a nice upgrade. I have been using a WA6 for the last few years. I sent it to Jack for the PDPS mod in 2010 (I...

    WA5 or other amp into WOO WEE energizer - Best cable/connection?

    Having heard great things about the WEE scaling well with great amps, I thought I would start my foray into stats by powering them with my Liquid Fire + WEE.    For those of you that have done this, and used your 1/4" out on your amp to go into the speaker taps of the WEE, what was the cable...

    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...
