im looking to get a tube amp to run from my apogee duet, for my headphones.(325is and hd600/650 when i can make my mind up)

thinking about a wa6. with the the princess Sophia and pseudo duel power option.

i want the option of linking active monitors to the amp out the back. woo audio said they can add this extra pre amp option, for an additional $130. thats fine.

the total price ends up just below 1000usd.
has anyone else done this?
how do you find it?
do you have any pictures showing the mod?

if im making the wrong decision. let me know or offer an alternative.
ps...it was to work in both 110v and 220v.

well i take it from the lack of interest or posts for that matter, that this mod is not common one or the right thing to do.

the lack of any real info on the mod has got me second guessing, if this is the right choice?

the preamp added to woo6 wouldn't be that great, but good enough for general usage if that's what you are asking.

I had Jack add it to a 5LE. It was done a year ago. The price was a lot more than your quote. To tell you the truth I have not done a lot a A/ Bing with it so I can't describe the quality. He put a small switch on one of the normal 5 non LE speaker binding post outlet. High headphone works all the time. Low goes to amp or switched to headphone.

iv already got the apogee duet which can go to the monitors, just thought if didnt want such an analytical sound and more hi fi sounding would be nice to get the warmer sounds of a tube amp.

was looking for a headphone amp , just thought it would be good if it could do this aswell.

from what i read, and hear myself the duet is a very good dac. interested if you have the same opinion.
