I use the balanced WOO WA 22. I had balanced XLR cables made for my Sennheiser HD700 cans. My opinion is that any WOO product is a high quality product. HeadFi web site has mucho threads about various WOO products, tubes etc, etc......

I am using the WA5 and find it a nice match. Also, play with the cables. If you can get a demo, try a few. I like the Moon Audio Silver Dragon on the LCD 3's (less dark in my view), but I might try the relatively new Nordost headphone cable.

+1 Woo stuff is really well made, high quality gear. I attended their display at the Dagogo Hi-Fi show in the SF Bay Area last summer and got to hear Audeze headphones (as well as my own HiFiMan model) on several Woo headphone amps. Can't comment on the sound too much except to say that Audeze booth and the Woo booth were right next to one another and the Audeze headphones sounded much better on the Woo Cube than they did on any of the headphone amps Audeze were using at their display. I will admit that I spent more time at Audeze than I did at Woo, but not because of the sound. Audeze had this incredibly gorgeous young lady working their booth vs. the Chinese gent manning the Woo booth. Being a dirty old man by both nature and avocation, naturally, I was very attracted to the former, and the Woo guy? Not so much... :)

I have the Woo WA7 Fireflies with the solid state power supply(I have their new WA7tp tube power supply currently in transit from Woo). So far, the Fireflies sounds magnificent with both my Audeze LCD-3(with Moon Audio Silver Dragon Premium V2 cable) and my Sennheiser HD800(with StefanArts Endorphin cable and Stefan AudioArts ultramod - the package was a steal purchased used on ebay) headphones. It all sounds great with the solid state PSU and the tube PSU is supposed to sound even better. I'm so smitten by Fireflies that I'm not sure I want to spoil myself by venturing further up the Woo food chain.
