    Hi guys,
     
    I would like to ask for info anyone with WA6 if you got any experience using HE-400/500 on this amp. 
     
    I'am trying to decide whether to get Schiit Lyr or Woo Audio WA6 for my HD650 and HE-400. (Also but not importantly Shrure SRH940,Grado SR225i)
     
    Thanks [​IMG]

    The Lyr will not drive your senns IMO, the Lyr is for low impedence cans from what I can gather from my experience. I never liked the HE-400 at all, so I can't comment on it with the Lyr, but it drives my HE-5Le very well, just need to find that perfect tube :)I'm also looking st more info or the WA6 + orthos, but the Lyr is definitely safe.

    Already got Lyr and sold HE-400 :D 
     
    From my experience Lyr is great combo with HD650 :wink:

    The Lyr sucks bad with my K240 600ohm so I figured Lyr doesn't agree with High Z cans ;P

    Well it got quite a lot of power so my guess would be it will suck with low impedance ones, but there is probably something else in equation :)
     
    Will be getting T1's in a week so hope they will work nicely with Lyr too.

    I have HE-4 with WA6.  Drives them just fine.

    The 5LE and 400 are both rated at 2w recomended, don't know if that's per channel or not but, if the He400 sounds good, I don't see why it wouldn't drive the 500. I am also looking at maybe the Mjolnir
