Woo Audio, a New York based audio product company specializing in headphone products, has just revealed a prototype of their latest product, at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2012. This new product is named the WA7 and is both a USB DAC and tube headphone amp.

Most unique in the design of the WA7’s is its solid-glass block tube shroud that encases the tubes, while venting them at the top. The appearance is much like a museum display case. Amplification is pure Class A and the DAC is a full 32-bit/192 kHz.

?Approximate max 1.5 watt/ch output
