Woo Audio WA11 Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV
May 6, 2018 at 5:56 PM Thread Starter Post #1 of 714
NOTE: If you can't see the embedded video above, please CLICK HERE to see the video.​

New York based Woo Audio has been making tube audio gear since they were founded in 2004. Today they're showing two firsts for them:
  • Their first truly portable amp (and DAC)
  • Their first solid state amp.
We take a look at this new, tentatively-named Woo Audio WA11 PASSPORT.

NOTE: Sorry we did not include pricing information in the video, but we weren't sure if the pricing info we have is tentative or final. We were told US retail will be $1399, and that intro price will be offered at $1189 shipped. We'll all have to wait for Woo Audio to confirm final details about all that.

Thanks Jude and your team for putting up a great video in such a short time. We have been holding our breath for a while. Here is the product page you can get more information for the WA11 PASSPORT.

4.4mm balanced in and out! I'm glad more companies are adopting it!
USB-C! Sweet.

Can't wait to see what a SS Woo amp sounds like!

I'm very interested in learning more about this amp. Just not looking forward to procuring more pricey adapters in order to take advantage of the balanced inputs and outputs.
Will this amp only come in the black finish? It's ok with me. I have my gold WA8 whenever I want some bling.

This fed by a compact portable (battery powered) Roon Bridge would make for a very nice 'round the house' balanced-out rig I've been desiring to drive my iSine 20s. Yes, USB-C is nice to see. But the 4.4mm plug means either an adapter or a new cable.

Sorry but its size is too big for portable. Almost same size as WA8.
Just another transportable unit to me.

Not for people like me who is already all 4.4mm ready in the house.
