Light yet punchy
ohall, 22.02.2019
I'm delighted with the LWA 500. I'm running it through a 2x10" 8ohm cab and the tone is superb. The four EQ bands are nicely spaced and give plenty of range so you can tailor your tone, though I have mine set fairly flat, and with a Warwick Thumb the tone is great as it is.
Being able to quickly mute the power amp makes using the tuning output a breeze .
The compressor is a simple combined threshold/gain knob and is extremely effective (though it can be bypassed if you have your own outboard processor) and the effects send return connector on the back makes this super simple too - you can dial in the dry/wet mix.
The unit also has a headphone mini jack for practice (which isolates the power amp at the same time) and a mini-jack aux input for injecting some audio to play along to.
For what I needed - a feature rich, super light but powerful amp with an incredibly clean/colour-free signal path - it ticks every box brilliantly.

Warwick LWA 500, solid and small
14.03.2016
Very small Basstop (still a piece smaller than my GK MB500 fusion), the sound is good and noise free. The is processing very high-quality (solid metal housing) as one of Warwick is accustomed.

Please note that only one speaker output is available, but this is not necessarily a problem (a double cable is included).

The only thing which bothered me a little is that the housing easily over the input, thus no angle latches into the input.

In a product presentation it is mentioned that the sound was developed dry, which I believe is also true. On the LWA 500, my StingRay sounds like a Ray.

Great is also the Aux input and phone output (both small jack), which is great for practicing, mp3 player connect, headphones purely and already one can play with super sound to his songs.
