Wooaudio WA2/WA6SE vs DNA Sonett

Discussion in 'Headphone Amps (full-size)' started by nabcs, Feb 1, 2010.
  1. nabcs
    I bought the Senn HD800 to replace my AKG 701.

    My current amp is a modified MF XCAN V3 with PSU.

    The sound is good but I want to replace it with a tube amp with more full bodied sound.

    I am thinking in various amps...Wooaudio WA2/WA6SE/WA22 or DNA Sonett.

    Anyone listen this amps with HD800...which is better ?


    Thank you for help.

    If you want "full body" sound, blackgate upgrade is a must for Woo Amp.

    May also want to consider the MAD Ear + . Getting good reviews here.

    For single-ended, I prefer DNA Sonett to the WA6SE (I've owned both). Sonett to my ears is more refined and musical.
    If you want to go balanced, WA22 is probably the way to go.

    Sonett can output fully balanced output as well with same price. Also, Equilibrato may also be worthy waiting (but I don't know when it will be available). There is a thread for it. People seem to think the sound is similar to Balancing Act, which I have not spend time reading about it yet due to its price.

    Did you find the DNA to have enough gain for your senns? its only about 1.2dB.

    Gain is around 6dB on the IEC setting and 1dB on the Low setting.

    Equilibrator?

    What is this you are referring? I can't find any reference to this in HF or google.

    I find myself at 4-6/10 on the volume knob for my usual listening (around 70-80 dB) with the Senns. Also, gain is 6 on the high impedance jack.
    The gain of 1 on the low impedance jack is also perfect for my Grado HF-2.
