channel system and was pleasantly surprised by its wonderful soundstaging, openness, transparency, natural timbre, and fine detail retrieval. I can imagine several audiophiles using the WA33 as a balanced linestage in their reference systems. It’s that good!

The Woo Audio WA33 is a terrific headphone amplifier, as well as a balanced linestage preamplifier suitable for use in the finest audio systems. It should drive any dynamic or planar magnetic headphone without a problem and the overall sound is glorious with a rich, but naturally detailed, tonal balance, explosive dynamics, and powerful and extended bass. Better still, its superb performance will keep you listening late into the night.
