    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.

    All my best,

    SS from Woo? Very interesting! USB-C is a nice touch.
    What is the output impedance?

    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.

    Likewise! As a WA8 owner, that would be very interesting indeed...

    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.

    Output impedance? Also portable is a stretch.

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

    I finally had a few minutes to look over the WA11 page (Jack posted the link above), black and silver finishes will be offered.

    oops, somehow that turned into a pre-order, lol!

    Interesting, never expected Woo Audio to release a solid state amp.

    @WooAudio , I see the WA11 passport's got up to 2W into a 100-ohm load. Could you perhaps tell me what the output would be into a 32-ohm load? thanks in advance.
