WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!! - Page 77

post #1141 of 2271

Change in the internals wasn't documented.  I just *placed* an order for a WA7, but they're backordered.  Wondering if it's worth changing or waiting for the new model now.  :)

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.

Don't forget to make system disk image or restore point before trying unless you want a lot of problems

If you're not in a hurry for the amp, and the optical input is usefull for you, why not? If you want to sell it, I'm sure the resale value will be somewhat higher than the current model.
But Woo Audio has not released the RRP for the new WA7d right?

In an email exchange with Jack this evening, he said the WA7d would have the "exact same" audio quality, and would retail for about $200 more.  No word on release dates.

Clearly, his style is very apple-esk.

Ouch! So if you really need the optical input, maybe it's worth to fork out another $200.
If not, just stick to your current order and hope you'll receive soon.

Thank you very much for your caution. I have a very very limit in computer knowledge, actually I use only Microsoft Office for my work.

 

Will this software be dangerous for my notebook? I saw many people use it since 2.0 version, but I have no idea what this software was about. Until 5.0 launched, and many users comment that this is good.

It's not dangerous as malware or virus but it will make changes to your operating system services and after you restart your computer you will loose network connection and access to internet

Ahh, ok, thank you very much. I will beware of that. But I do love its sound from JRiver :)

I didn't notice much difference using foobar
post #1151 of 2271

Using ASIO or WASAPI there shouldn't be ANY difference. The bit perfect playback cannot be made any more perfect.

Fidelizer may help with things like pops and clicks if you have them, but if the playback is smooth then keep it out of your system.

Has anybody been able to get a virtual surround sound program to work nicely with the WA7 drivers? This thing sounds amazing for pure music listening, but it's a little weak for gaming, and I know at least razer surround makes the sound freak, cutting in and out.

March is almost over. Any news on the new PSU? I'm itching to get out my credit card and order one ;)

That makes two of us. I check every day...not that I can really fault the WA7 as-is. Regardless, another set of glowing tubes would look great on my desk!

post #1155 of 2271

I wish it was only *once* a day that I was checking....sigh....I have no life LOL.

 

Agree with the extra set of glowing tubes ;) I've got mine setup in my living room on a nice side table next to a very comfy couch. I ordered a nice new cable to replace my stock cable for my LCD-3's from Norne Audio. When I get the new PSU alongside my WA7 I'll post a pic of my setup. I can hardly wait ;)
