Thanks - any impressions versus CDM for IEM listening?
looks great but its a bit heavy and big to be considered portable but its a great transportable
This seems like a direct response / competitor to the ALO Audio Continental Dual Mono.
Are they comparable? I don't believe the Continental runs Class A. But sound-wise, I wonder how they compare.
they fit different needs, they have completely different design approach. For those who look for pure tube amp CDM perhaps don't fit the bill as it is hybrid tube and it is balanced ready.
WA8's goal was to have desktop-class performance in a small, transportable form factor. One listen to WA8 with your favorite high-end headphones and you'll see why it took us this long to bring it to market.

I really wish this was balanced. I'd be a buyer for sure if it was.
"I felt Louis Armstrong was in the room with me..."
Especially as many users of HD800 series state it's superior sonics in balanced mode.
Respectfully, nearly any capable listening devices are improved with a balanced implementation. My hope is that the sound from the WA8 is sufficient to make me not care, despite having potentially useless cables
Any plans to release some info for the power output spec? 350mW seems low... What load is the 350mW at? How about output impedance? These are fairly straightforward specs for new amps, thanks!
Jude stated that it output 350mw x 2, i am also interested to find out at what impedance.
the windows driver link from the web is down. it doesnt even allow downloading. it just links you back to the wa8 page. can anyone fix this as i do not have the mac laptops
This is interesting.
It is up on the site now. You can also let Windows search and download the correct driver. Windows library links to the appropriate XMOS xCORE driver.
This Thursday, March 17, 2016, the new WA8 Eclipse will make its debut at Stereo Exchange New York and AudioVision San Francisco. We will also be at SoCal CanJam over the weekend. Hope to see you there!
