WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!! - Page 71

post #1051 of 2271

Woodies love Wooooooooooo

 

My WA7 already pass 70 hours, I think it stable now. Sound very smooth with a little lush, so I can listen for very long time.

Has anyone bought a wa7 from Audio Advisor?   I see they are a Woo authorized dealer and also keep the wa7 in stock.

I was considering getting the WA7 from AudioAdvisor as well:)

However I have the HE-500 and was also considering the Lyr, Burson 1793, EF-5 and Violectic V200:( Can't make up my mind:(

They don't have the best reviews on reseller ratings, but they're not too bad either: http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Audio_Advisor

 Audio Advisor is a great dealer. I been buying from them since the early 90's. Free shipping and a 30 day no restock fee charge.. Cant go wrong with that .

Really looking forward to receiving the WA7 soon. I just have a question for those pairing low impedance headphones with the WA7, such as the 25 ohm D7000 and TH900: which jack/output do you use?

I've read the 1/8 "IEM" jack has an output impedance of 23 ohms, so I'm assuming that suits low impedance headphones better than the 36 ohm output of the 1/4. But, I'd prefer to ditch the 1/8 adapter and hook up my D7000 directly to the 1/4 jack.

For my TH600, I'm still using the 1/4" jack but I change the rear impedance switch to LO-Z

I've never done A-B comparison, but if I plug-in the TH600 to 1/8" jack, I ended up have to crank volume knob more

I've got about 80 hours now on the WA7 with the stock tubes, I have to say it keeps getting better and better. The sound through my HD800 were fatiguing at first, but now the soundstage is bigger the separation is better and yesterday I wore the HD800 for 5hrs, no fatigue what so ever!! 

 

@genpatton7 I would probably use the 1/4", however I have used the UE900's which are IEM's and it drove them beautifully through the 1/8" output! Just FYI!! :bigsmile_face:

mate the EH tubes are billion times better than the stock tubes, unless you are after a warm musical sound sig with less details/dynamic/micro epicness, :P

Well I ordered a WA7 from AudioAdvisor this am at 10:00 and got a shipping confirmation at 2:30.  Said they had both black and silver in stock.  Seems crazy to wait two weeks from WOO.  Hope I don't jinx myself lol.  Anyway , they seem like a reputable company and they are a authorized Woo dealer.

That's good to know. I got mine used today as well from another forum member here. I would have bought new from AudioAdvisor, but I wanted the EH tubes. AudioAdvisor is not stocking those, are they?

No just the stock tubes.  I did order a set of Sovtek 6c45 cryo matched pair from tubeman.com.  Will try those until Woo gets the EH's back in.  Congrats on your purchase.
