From impressions by some of the users, seem like SQ wise:
EH Gold pins > Cryo > Stock = NOS Reflector (in descending order).

Think it's worth trying to get my hands on we437?

I haven't come across any review or user impression on we437.

Most of us here stick to 6c45 tubes

Why does that recently posted pic of the tube power supply have a volume knob? There isn't going to be a volume knob on the PSU is there?

My guess is that it will be a rotating on/off switch, such as with the WA6-SE:

Got the matched 6c45 cryo treated tubes from tubeman.com .    Very nice.  To me they have a wider soundstage and the sound is crisper.  Not sure how else to describe them.  I definetly think they are worth it over the stock tubes. I did like the stock tubes as well but these take things up a notch.

I connect notebook to WA7, there are a lot of output options in Jriver

 

1. ASIO for C-Media USB Device, it play the song but show 24/96 input to 16/96 output

 

2. TUSB Audio ASIO Driver, not play song, show error message "Play back could not be started on output ASIO using the format 96kHz-2ch"

 

3.WASAPI, not play, show same error text

 

4. Direct Sound, play song with correct input/output details (in = 24/96, out = 24/96)

 

5. USB 2.0 High Speed True HD Stereo (Direct Sound), play song but some time show (in = 24/96, out = 24/96), some time show (in = 24/96, out =32/96).

 

Please kindly suggest which option will have the best sound. My notebook use Windows 8.1. My Headphones are ATH-W1000, ATH-W5000 and ATH-ESW11LTD

 

Thanks


Just want to share with anyone that have same problem. To make it short

 

My problem is, playing from Jriver, output always 16 bit (ASIO mode), every album, 24/96, 24/192, 32/192 are all out at 16.

I'm try to find the answer from Jriver web board, but most of answer there are "your DAC is not have enough capacity to support bit rate"

I just found the solution yesterday, WA7 driver has default setting at 16 bit in JRiver. I change to 32 bit and problem solved.

Tools -> Option -> Device Settings -> Device Control Panel -> set to 32 bit.

Ok, I just picked up a used (absolutely MINT condition) set of HD650's.  I'm enjoying these a lot more than I thought I would.  I got them for a steal, so I couldn't resist.  I was really enjoying my DT880 600ohm, but these seem to take it up to a completely new level.  Now, having said that I have an order in for the EH goldpin tubes.  Will my grin increase even more once I get them?

I have the same question as you. My HD 600 is currently on its way to me.

if you did read the thread, i am sure you would had the answer, there is a search button :P type EH Tube.

anyway the Treble is rolled of on the stock tube, the sound is warm and mellow, where the EH tubes will give you more kind of a sound that is near the solid state amps but not same sparkle in the treble region, the pico amps still sparkle even more, but the difference between the EH and Stock is really big, and will make you grin even more

that being said, i don't know what does make you grin? it is warm lush mellow sound sig? or More Detail and fun in the sound with avoiding treble/bass lost?  chose the EH or Stock depending and what make you grin ^^ 

hope that i helped you.

I spend two days compare the sound of using this program http://www.windowsxlive.net/fidelizer-5-0-released-major-update-with-windows-88-1-fully-compatible/

 

I think I'm happy with this freeware, it make music file especially my 16/44.1 own EAC ripped files sound less digital, more smooth. It's worth to try, If you don't like it just delete it.

*sigh*

 

Now they are releasing a version of the WA7 with optical included. Why not have done that from the beginning... that was the one thing I wanted when I looked at the WA7 for the first time. Kind of pissed.

Yes exactly! I have the HDMI sound going to my monitor, then out the 1/8" jack on the monitor, then to a 1/8" to RCA splitter into the back on my WA7. the noise floor is so bad through the monitor. theres a consistent buzzing sound that i stopped trying that setup and have it going through my swans m50w so that i can't hear the buzzing as bad.

Maybe they will offer a reduced intro price on the new unit. You can sell yours and get the new model? I have the original as well BTW. I just bought it a month ago.
