Default Alctron MP73EQv2 vs Warm Audio WA73

I really like my Warm Audio WA73 and am thinking about getting another but noticed the Alctron MP73EQv2 is $200 less so my question is what do you guys think of the Alctron MP73EQv2 vs the Warm Audio WA73? Thanks for the input!

We have tested all those clones and if you need a mono pre that actually sounds superior and handbuilt buy the GA-EQPre73 Premier and it is under 500 dollars and blows them others away.

We have 4 of them but only two in this picture. Sounds amazing for real. The guy who is golden age is a 66yo really great tech and builds everything by hand and the premier line is a very exclusive line and can not be compared to the project line (older red units)..

If you need a stereo unit I would get the Alctron before warm audio. IMHO of course. WA are well priced but mass produced in a huge factory with lots of other makes and models and the qualitybis questionable at best.


We bought 4 WA-76 for fun to try and it took 3 swaps to get 4 100% working units and units that were not 3-5 dB difference in output signal.

Wow really the GA-EQ Pre 73 is really at the top of the clone world?

It would be nice to finally get the pre, I’ve never had one

Yeah IMHO of course as we tested a lot of clones. You need the Premier.line though. We just got the GA800G Sony version for 4000 euro and it is basically the exact same sound as our 12K sony C800G

GA Premier line has really been engineered to perfection.
