Ah, I just assumed you were buying from Woo. When I bought my Woo amps they weren't selling through anyone else yet, I forgot you can get them through Audio Advisor now. I see Advisor doesn't offer the upgrade options available on the Woo site.

Yea, but AA has them in stock and Woo has to build them. Also AA does not charge for shipping and Woo does.

Congrats and good luck. I have had a Woo WES which I use with Stax 007 and 009 headphones. I find the build quality very high and have had no issues going on 7+ years. And the SQ is very good

We have Woo .... First listen, pretty darn good. Of course not even close to being broken in. Woo suggests 150+ hours for the unit to reach top performance. My HD800S headphones have never sounded so good.

Randy.......A good thing about the Woo is once you grow tired of it you will probably be able to sell the Woo faster than your Benchmark sold.

That is always a good thing .... I am hoping to hold on to this for some time. I think I have finally got the system setup the way I like it. Of course that does not preclude upgrading components ....
