I can look to see where
Might of asked jack Wu himself
Just got an update e-mail from Woo Audio. They are discontinuing the smoke glass option due to manufacturing delays. All new Black WA7 will now ship with the clear glass tops. Ship dates have been pushed back by a few weeks.
Order Date --> Ship Date
Jan 28- Feb 18 --> By the end of April
Feb 19 - Mar 20 - May 10-13
March 20 - current - After May 17
Looks like I will have to wait another month.
Looks like they are shipping out ahead of schedule.
Just got a shipping notice from Woo Audio. I should receive it by next monday =D
im guessing that 2 ohms is only really available in the portable amps - 2 ohms seems very low for a desktop
Measured information on the WA7 can be found here:
It appears the output impedance is approx. 23 ohms for the 1/8" jack, approx. 36 ohms for the 1/4" jack lo-Z and approx. 110 ohms hi-z.
so perhaps the WA7 is great for my HD800's but not the ie800;s - maybe i should rethink my desire to listen with the ie's at my desktop
Yes..I saw those measurements and they were higher than I was expecting. Woo Audio specs says WA7 is suitable for 8-600 ohm headphones. I haven't used all my IEMs with it yet...but I can tell you that my Etymotics have never sounded better.
Wow Doug.. pretty much the same setup as I have but I'm using Amperex Orange Globe tubes.
I'm really considering the WA7 but don't want to drop a grand without hearing or really researching.
So, same questions for me...
I don't have Lyr but currently own WA7 with stock tubes at this time (but already sent money to Jack an have to wait 2-3 weeks for upgrade tubes) and enjoying it with my D7000 after falling in love with WA7 after trying it with my D7000 as well as T90, T1, and $2000 Fostex at the recent NYC meet and they all sounded great when using built-in DAC with USB input. I personally didn't try HD800 since I prefer T1 over HD800 but those who did really liked it. Also remember you can use different DAC if you want to and you can connect any AMP you have using RCA jacks and compare which one you like best but for me the whole idea was to get compact desktop DAC/Amp in one with DAC capable of 24bit 192 kHz with Asynchronous USB input and tube Amp
AH! Thanks for inadvertently reminding me to grab a USB cable. I hope the one I have is long enough and I don't have to buy a new one. Now I just gotta find it somewhere in my house. Stealing the cable from an old printer. I received my tracking info yesterday. I would have gone crazy if I received my unit next week and realized I had to waste time to go out to buy a USB cable.
