I was looking for that warm and fuzzy feeling of real and authentic analogue sound without having to deal with old equipment and the commitment of constant maintenance and repairs. Warm Audio is exactly that. Brand new authentic, amazing sounding analog gear. WA76 and WA2A…WOW! Couldn’t be happier.
