blowing a ton of cash on tube rolling is what i expect.

 

hope there's a preorder special like the wa7 had.

you mean we will be able to use more tube options? like the Orange tube with more Treble, forgot the name :P  or these good DJ8 something

or did i just misunderstand u? XD

The difference is more transparency and liquidity6 with the 12Au7 power supply. I head it in Denver and did the AB comparisons and it was a step up and gives oyu many tube rolling options for an inexpensive and readily available tube

Great picture! My cat enjoys sitting in my lap while I listen to music with my WA7 and T90.

Cute cat!

 

It really is too bad they don't offer the smoked glass anymore, would really love to have a black unit with smoked glass :(

post #1119 of 2271
^ agreed.
If they still offer the smoked glass, I would have ordered the black WA7, instead of silver WA7 that I'm using now
post #1120 of 2271

I agree as well.  I was lucky enough to get a black unit with smoked glass.  However, as the new PSU's will not have the smoked glass the combo will look a bit disjointed.

Ho hum...

Is the new PSU an addon external to the WA7 or is it being incorporated into the unit?  I was hoping to buy the PSU separately without any serious modding for my current unit.

Just got my wa7. Put in the cryogenic 6c45pi first. Any reason to roll the stock tubes? Or is cryo better all around?

Doing some comparisons between wa7 dac and chord hugo dac as well as direct comparison between hugo and wa7 and combos.

Congrats!

From impressions by some of the users, seem like SQ wise:

EH Gold pins > Cryo > Stock = NOS Reflector (in descending order).
