Tubes can also power the Meze Elite really well.
The only thing missing here is a glass of fine Kentucky Bourbon and a robust cheroot!!!!

That Auris is just killer. If it sounds even close to how it looks--heaven.

I've heard a few of their amps at shows. Between the size (too big for my cramped desktop) & price, I'm a sidelines admirer.

Is the WA22 good enough to kick the Susvara ?
Marginally with 421A as power tube. To drive Susvara, I usually use WA22 as preamp to Kinki THR-1 as poweramp.

That's a terrific idea. Killer tube + killer SS sound.

The Kinki interests me a lot, but the lack of a remote makes it hard for me to use as a system preamp (in addition to HP amp, of course), which is how I would ideally use it.

I keep hoping the designer will refine a few things and make it my dream amp...maybe someday.

Yes indeed, the Kinki is the most analogue sounding SS headphone amp I have ever heard so the synergy of the combo is really amazing.

For other cans with more normal sensitivity, I prefer either WA22 or Kinki, depends on mood.
