The All-New WA7 Fireflies from Woo Audio - Page 33

post #481 of 661

Just realized my HeadRoom Ultra Desktop Amp has an optical input and though my macbook pro does not i purchased a HiFiMeDIY DAC that does.  Plugged it in and not only does it sound much better but now it accepts up to 24/96!  Exciting because for a minute there I contemplated an upgrade ;)

Would the WA7 work well with the Schiit Gungnir? If so that with Fostex TH900 Headphones would be like my dream system.

I imagine it would work fine.  Gungnir has RCA out that would feed into the WA7 in RCA mode.  I'm currently using an outboard DAC with the WA7 and TH900s and I am a very, very happy camper.

That's a good tip - I have just installed the Bifrost driver and it works like a charm, allowing me to use WASAPI event mode. Certainly worth a try if someone's having issues with the DAC.

Does anyone have info on the new USB drivers?  Is there a performance increase?

post #486 of 661

I have these and my only dismay is you cant leave them on 24/7. I bought them to be my fulltime desktop listening solution for office but it really is only for listening sessions a few hours at a time, not 18+ hours a day

What kind of USB cable do you guys recommend?

post #488 of 661

I use Audioquest Forest they are reasonably priced and much better quality than a generic printer cable.

post #489 of 661

AudioQuest Cinnamon here but even cheaper and better, the NuForce USB cable.  For some reason, it sounds better than the AQ with the WA7. Didn't notice a difference between the two with the Bifrost (no USB cable wars please - just my experience :)

I have Audioquest Carbon which I prefer over 4 other I have tried but also had situatuins when heard no difference between Carbon and Voodoo Magic BUS for example

Is this worth taking a look at? or would any gold plated decent cable do just fine?

post #494 of 661

I don't know much about usbs but will likely go with one of the audioquest ones recommended above.

 

I've read a few posts about having issues with poor USB cable connections so I thought I would look into it now.

post #495 of 661

a better upgrade would be the iusb from ifi. The WA7 DAC is powered by the pc's USB bus, so the ifi would remedy that by 'outsourcing' the power to its own low noise power supply.
