Too bad "fresh" isn't necessarily a good thing when it comes to equipment that likes time to beak in. Enjoy your wa7. I'm going to listen to mine on lcd-x as well. B interested in comparing notes.

Im hoping to get some of my impressions of the WA7 with HD800  and the HE500 some time this weekend. This horse is probably been beaten to death, but maybe its a "for what its worth" kinda of thing!!  :deadhorse:

Someone (in this thread I believe) had asked about the insides of WA7. Well, there's something tiny rattling inside the one I just had delivered today, so I'm about to crack it open. Jack is using security torx screws and it seems like a T20. I have a T25 and T30, so I'm going to the store in a bit. Since I will open it up to see what that thing is, are you still interested in pictures? And do you know that there is any rule against posting pictures of the inside of an amp that I own?

Do post some pictures of the innards.

The rattling sounds could also be the square plate on top of the amp, which is secured to the amp using some magnets.

Good pictures from all angles or it never happened :bigsmile_face: 

 

Macro settings on all circuitry :ph34r:

Hahaha. Ok, ok. Haven't gotten to it, yet. Will do in a bit...

if you get good enough shots of the DAC card up close i got a world class hardware engineer who might be able to work out a DAC upgrade...  i am also curious about removing the gain reduction on the 3.5 plug if possible.  trying to run Ety ER4s from it and they need more power then the mini jack is giving.

Ok, I'll do my best. Still wrapping up work here...

Hm... that's not a normal security torx, folks. None of the bits work. I looked closer and torx is a 6 star. The ones Jack has on there are 7 star. I'm thinking he probably had those manufactured along with the case and he's got a special key made to unscrew them. Now I really want to get into it. What's the big secret? I have a friend in a CNC facility and we'll make a key, I guess.

 

Anyway, the rattling thing is not the top. I took the magnetic top off and it's still rattling. It sounds like something tiny and I'm sure it's fine. I just want to get it out. If it's metal, I don't want it shorting anything. I'd send it to Woo, but I don't want to pay shipping both ways and wait for days. I'll get this thing figured out and then take some pictures.

 

If anyone knows if this is a standard security screw, please let me know.

sounds like the same screw apple uses in their products... think iFixit has the driver for it.

I'm pretty sure apple uses the 6 star security torx. I have this here already
