Back in 2016, Warm Audio introduced the previous model WA-87 and made the much sought-after vintage sound of the original affordable for everyone. Now, based on the experience gained, the Texan manufacturer has consistently updated the model to once again exceed expectations.
The WA-87 R2 (Revision 2) therefore features a discrete circuit design with premium components such as New-Old-Stock Fairchild transistors, WIMA and Nichicon capacitors and is complemented by an improved CineMag USA output transformer. The capsule is based on an in-house development precisely modeled on the classic double diaphragm capsule with a gold-coated 6 µm NOS Mylar membrane.
The WA-87 R2 is available in nickel or black.
