Has anyone here A/B'd a WT-400 with a WT-550?

    My head quest is turning toward Eden after a WT-400 blew me away the other night. Munji may just be right about their stuff.

    I'm seriously considering a lower power rig, but would feel a little better about 500W at 4 Ohms than 400W. It's not a volume issue, just fart protection - I realize 100W isn't going to make an audible difference. Headroom, however, is good.


    Anyway, has anyone compared these two side-by-side? What I've read here implies the WT-550 is basically an upgraded WT-400 and sounds the same, but I'm looking for confirmation.

    Also, can anyone advise typical street pricing on Eden stuff? The dealer I was at always prices at full list and then negotiates - I didn't want to waste his time since I'm not going to be ready to buy for a month or two.

    According to Nigel Tufnel, the 550 is about 150 louder.
