Sorry I ment hearing

Listen to my WA7 + T5p combo every day all day at work and I couldn't be happier with the sound.  I am hearing things in music that I have listened to for 20 years that I have never heard before.  Very warm, very pure and clear with plenty of reserve power to put a punch in any kick at any moment without losing the ability to hear the artist take a breath between verse.

Is there any online source in Europe for this gorgeous looking thing?

Thinking about doing my T5p and my TH900 a favour...

Listen to the WA7 + T90 at least five nights each week and feel the same way. Very well put groovyd.

Congrats! Liking it a lot with DT880s so far (running the Electro Harmonix tubes now). Must try T90 or T1 one day... . Anyone compared T90/T1 to DT880 (on WA7) by any chance?

I have had my WA7 for maybe 6 or 8 weeks now?  I have listened 1st with Grados, then the Q701's, then the AD900x, and just this very day, I switched to my DT880/250's.  Loving it so far !!

 

I kinda view the DT880/250's as the middle ground between the AD900x's, which are a little low end emphasizing, and the Q701's, which are a little high end tilted.  All sound good, just "different".

I too have been enjoying the WA7 for about 8 weeks with Q701 & Grado RS1 & PS500. It takes them all to a new level but this amp has great synergy with the PS500! Soundstage is enhanced & lows are extended with amazing detail. By the way I went back to the stock tubes for a day and definitely prefer the EH upgrades.

Love my WA7. Using with EH gold pins and Silver Dragon LCD-2's. Couldn't be happier (although there always are the LCD-3's). Use my JH 13 Pro's as well.

Guys, WA7 having unbalanced inputs - does it matter performance wise in any way?

 

I have no idea about the difference of balanced/unbalanced inputs. Someone on another forum said that having no balanced inputs sucks.

I'm ready really love HD650 with WA7 using upgraded EH tubes

I work in the pro-audio world and we use balanced equipment and cable to minimize trouble with ground loops and residual noise. We are constantly changing connections between equipment and mics. Unbalanced connections between a few devices as is common in the consumer world can be just as good with a little care. Unbalanced outputs on my Violectric V800 to WA7 sound very good. But so do the balanced outputs on the V800 to V200 SS headphone amp. Two different amps and sonic signatures. One DAC. Have been enjoying the WA7 with Beyerdynamic T90 headphones for many months now. My goto combination for recreational listening (as opposed to work listening for which I get paid.)

Anyone else not able to get the D/A mode working?  I thought the DAC was powered through USB so I could turn the power and tubes off.. maybe I'm mistaken.

You need to change switch on the back from its default position to the one marked D/A
