Woo Audio Reveals the "Fireflies" Headphone Amp/DAC
Tags: Woo Audio, Headphone Amps, DACs (all tags)
A special preorder price of $799 is available now.
The latest from Woo Audio is a combination headphone amp and DAC called the WA7, or Fireflies, depending on preference. Woo packs a 32-bit 192Khz USB digital to analog converter into its Class A amp, along with a pair of 6C45 vacuum tubes.
Unlike most audio equipment, "Fireflies" is designed to be shown off. It features an aluminum chassis and a glass top to show off the pair of tubes. There's little to interrupt the look of the amp aside from a pair of headphone outputs for different sizes and a large volume knob.
The WA7 ships at the end of February and is available now to preorder at the price of $799. Once it ships, the price is expected to raise to $999.
