i would not suggest to pursue cdm. you have the answers for why already. WA6 would probably be the one of the best alternative.

I tried to purchase the CDM from E1 last night, they refunded me. Their stock wasn't accurate and therefore it wasn't in stock. I am strongly considering a WA8 Eclipse now, I'm aware of the poor battery life. Can anyone steer me away from it to wait for a used CDM based on sound quality comparisons?
I can't steer you away from the WA11 based in sound quality, since I think it sounds great. In it's three tube mode, it sounds more "tubey". Keep in mind that it is significantly larger and heavier than the CDM. I wouldn't recommend trying to use either while out and about, as they both can get very warm. They are great when you can sit down and listen. There are some smaller NuTube based portable amps from Oriolus, and an upcoming one from Cayin, that may also be worth looking into. Only the CDM and Woo are tube rollable of those options. Phat labs has had several tube portable amps, but you have to order through Jaben, AliExpress, etc, not sold directly in the US.

Also I will be using the WA8 mostly in AMP only mode as I will be stacking it with a Hugo2.

This amp/ dac is a masterpiece, I haven’t been using it lately and is just setting. I have silver, black chassis with glass window and a gold chassis without window. Extra battery and around 40 plus pairs of tubes. It should last a lifetime. I might put it up for sale.

Can't get why sell it... In my case I gust sold it to get another one with window... But true tube roller is LE version. Though I set with tubes (over 20 pairs) just wanted aesthetic view of it.
