WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!! - Page 86

post #1276 of 2271

... got some 1820's gold funkengroovin tubes on the way ftw...

Recabled my LCD-X, XC, & T1 with Norne Audio Skoll cables terminated with 1/4" Furutech Rhodium plugs only to find that the plugs do not fit into the WA7 input without having to reshape the tip.  Anyone considering using Furutech plugs with a WA7 beware!

I used Moon Audio cable with Furutech FP704 plug without problem with WA7 and others amps so far

Are you sure it's not just a tight fit?

 

Both my stock HD650 and Oyaide 1/4" plugs were very tight fits into the WA7.

I went with the Cardas plug for my LCD-3's from Norne and thankfully haven't had any problems .

Just an art picture for appreciation of WA7 :)

I have the FP-704 which is gold plated and fits all my amps no problem

Also have the FT-763 (R) which is rhodium plated and is indeed a tight fit but will work

Also have the FT-735 (R) rhodium plated 1/8 this one refuses to go into a particular switchcraft jack I have its not even close

I actually got 4 Furutech Rhodium FT-763R connectors brand new straight from japan in package and all 4 do not fit either of my 2 WA7 at all.  Not even pushing with enough force to damage the amp.  I had to file the point of the tip ever so slightly sharper.  The disadvantage being now there is no Rhodium on the tip and the color is brassy.  It isn't a big deal but for $50 per connector you just kind of expect it to work since every other connector in my closet works fine without modification.

 

This is not about the gold plated versions.

Wrong plug.  I am talking about the rhodium FT-763R

I would contact Jack and ask why it's not compatible

sounds good... let me know what he says.  there are a few more amps on the market which it does not fit as well so it is not really a Woo thing.  The connector is clearly not to standards spec. and there is no real reason to blunt the tip of the connector as much as they have.  It is visually about twice as blunt as any other connector I have.

Thus the wa7 and the alo panam share the same size of tubes?
post #1289 of 2271
Same type you should say. There are many 9 pin tubes but not all of them will work

Really liking my WA7 and TH-600 combo lately.  Might have to get in on that upgraded power supply.
