The All-New WA7 Fireflies from Woo Audio - Page 40

post #586 of 592

Well, you can start troubleshooting by taking Audirvana out of the equation: Make sure it's closed (I believe it may have exclusive device control), then open Audio MIDI Setup in Applications/Utilities/ (part of every OS X install). With the WA7 properly connected, the options should look like this:

 

 

If this does NOT show the above, something's wrong with the USB connectivity to your WA7. If it does, something's wrong with your Audirvana setup. I personally use BitPerfect, and it works fine in Mavericks via USB3.

No issues here on OS X latest 10.9.4 with MacBook Pro Retina display USB 3 and MacBook Air USB 3.  I use BitPerfect and Amarra.

I don't like to brag, but finally my new power supply came in and it is PRETTY!!!

Didn't have a chance to hear the difference yet, if any... Frankly, I don't care if sound doesn't improve.. It looks so much better!

 

Anyone have any personal experience with the new power supply?

While I appreciate that it looks nice, the sound quality is what matters to me above all. Thankfully it's awesome:

And yes! It sounds great!

The background was dead quiet already and at full volume without anything playing you hear.... nothing!

Things seem to sound a little cleaner and bass is more tight and defined.

One thing I can't really explain and is more a feeling than hearing. It feels like what is fed to the headphones is more natural.

Female vocals have more emotion, you can hear the little trembling in the voice better.

 

in my ears the difference is not huge, but it definitely is worth the purchase. It brings the WA7 to the next level.

 

(I do have to add that I have them connected to a Audio Power Industries power conditioner with PS Audio and Wireworld power cables and I am using an iFi USB purifier and a Wireworld USB cable. All this probably helps too)

How does the HD800 sound like when pairing with the WA7?
