    Woo Audio Amp Owner Unite

    Hi buddy, I wonder to start this thread earlier when I received my amp and searched that there is no such tiltle so I start it. Please also state what headphone/s you're pairing with and how do you love the combo. My WA6SE arrived by mid-March this year. I ordered a Sophia Princess 274B and...

    Combined DAC+amp needed - tubes for under $600?

    I need a combined DAC + headphone amp for my desk at work, to drive my MrSpeakers Alpha Dogs.  I’m a tube-o-phile.  My budget is in the $5-600 range.  Am I stuck?    The only ones I can see are the HifiMan amps (which don’t seem to be well-liked?) and then higher up the Woo Fireflies (too...

    [Review] Woo Audio WA7, a very unscientific review

      Pros: Build quality, clean neutral leaning sound with stock tubes, high quality DAC, compact size, versatility due to tube rolling, plenty of power. Cons: Heavy, tubes eventually burn out, warm-up time. Cost at Time of Review: $1,100 with upgraded tubes   Reviewing Process I’ve spent a...

    Addicted to Bass?!

    When I was a kid, about 30 years ago, I had an uncle we went to see, he lived far away and died young so I only ever saw him once.  He had some large wooden speakers, a large stack of hifi separates and while the adults talked about stuff in the kitchen he put some music on for me.   It is...

    New Grados or something else? $1000 budget (new or used)

    First thing first, I love the Grado sound a lot for the music I listen to mostly (rock, classic rock, indie rock, soft rock). I also love large soundstage (AD700, K7xx) as well. While I do like my AKG K7xx for their wide soundstage, I am finding them boring and not engaging. The soundstage, to...

    Need Help with Amp Decision for LCD-3f before deployment

    Hey guys i'm in a slight delima. I currently have a pair of LCD-3f paired with the IDSD Micro. I love the sound of DSD tracks but the micro is a tad bit to harsh for my liking with non DSD files even when up sampling to DSD. I am looking for a good amp or amp/dac combo under $2000 to either pair...

    Which would you choose?

    Looking for an amp/DAC setup that is versatile for most headphones (high impedance driver and planars) and I could use for many many years. For now the headphone I use is the Alpha Dog, HD800 on shipping. Next buy at the end of the year will be HE-6 or LCD-3. Budget max 1500 dollars, Burson...

    Good afternoon all. I have taken a long hiatus from the hobby for the past few years....but it is good to be back :)   I recently picked up a pair of HD800's.

    WA-7 vs WA6 + M-Stage

    Hi All,   As the title says, I'm looking at upgrading to either the WA-7 Fireflies or a Matrix M-Stage DAC + WA6 (w/Sophia Princess Rectifier). These two options both come out at the $1000 mark, but what do people think is the better option?   I'm currently running an ODAC+O2 Combo with...

    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...

    Amp for HD800: Soloist SL or WA7?

    Greetings all,   I have been flying around Head-Fi around for a few days now trying to get some solid impressions, and finally figured I'd just ask the specific question to you fine folks.   I have recently acquired a set of HD800s via a pretty decent deal. I listen primarily to classical...

    Replacement DC Umbilical Cord for the Woo WA7 Fireflies?

    Anybody know of any options?   Looking for something available in different lengths.   And to make the girl happy, something a little sexier than the stock black rubber, with a nice sleeving.    Searches using various combinations of the keywords "DC umbilical power cord cable" have proved...

    Woo WA7 Issue

    Since receiving my Wa7 there has been issues regarding drop outs and crackles for about 4 seconds every 30 minutes or so. The issue appears to cause the sound to lag in regards to any video content that I am using. I am using Windows 8 and have updated the drivers supplied by Woo. It's slightly...

    Woo Audio WA7TP (tube power supply) Impressions Thread

    Since it's about to  be launched, I thought I'd get an impressions thread started.  If you've heard the WA7TP - and especially if you've been able to A/B it vs the stock PSU - please post your impressions here.    I'll prime the pump with some early impressions about the prototype I heard way...

    Woo WA7... Uh... What's going on?... It's TERRIBLE.

    Okay, so took delivery of a new Woo WA7 today, to replace my WA3, which was a little big for the space, particularly when paired with a DAC... I got the upgraded electro-harmonix tubes option as well.   So... I know you need to burn amps in a bit, but everything I've read on the WA7 says just...

    Are my tubes about done?

    I have an original Glow Audio One tube amp, and as far as I know it has the original Chinese tubes.  I think this amp was built around 2009/2010.  I bought the amp used off Craigslist, and I've put probably 1000+ listening hours into.  Lately, the left channel gets the odd crackles and pops...

    Which Woo amp for Audeze LCD-X?

    Hi all,   I've been a member here for a long time, but I had stopped visited the forums for years (so I don't go broke). Since, it's been a few years, I thought I'd take a look at what's new and see if I can do a major upgrade of my equipment.   I mostly listen to classical, jazz and more...
