WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!! - Page 31

post #451 of 1370

Hello everyone -

I'm probably doing many things wrong, but I just got my WA7 and I can't seem to be able to set up my output on my Macbook Pro's Audio MIDI Setup to 24-bit Integer. It is stuck on 16 bit and is not selectable. The WA7 is simply plugged into my computer via USB. I read through the thread but couldn't find any similar issues so it's most likely my fault, feel free to point it out regular_smile%20.gif

 
Edit: In case it matters, the USB cable I am using is this one
 
Edit #2: Never mind, it was the USB port. I'm leaving the post in case anyone has the same problem!

I had the same issue a couple of times - simply unplugging the usb cable and connecting it again has fixed it on my iMac.

Does it hurt the sound quality to set the midi on a mac to a higher bit resolution or sample rate?  My music library is all 16 bit 44khz music or iTunes match, AAC

It shouldn't, I currently use my win 7 setup as 32 bit with 6ms latency without any problems

how did you get the 32bit to show up? on my audio dev. Only shows up to 24/192. 

 

Do I have to have some type of special software to see the 32bit? 

post #456 of 1370
it's within foobar2000. YOU go to preferences and in the output select C-Media USB. Than in ASIO double click ASIO for C-Media USB device to get control panel and select 32/32bit

Any idea if the wa7 dac will work with an ipad?
post #461 of 1370
If you use the camera connection kit USB interface to a powered hub such as a Belkin F5U234 with external power supply the WA7 should work with an iPad. The WA7 DAC needs power from the USB interface and by itself the iPad doesn't supply USB power.

Update:

I tried it as described above and locked up the iPad both times tried, requiring a reboot each time. It appears the answer is no.

I doubt since their website provides driver for windows. It is said that you need to purchase a spceial license from Apple to get external DAC works for apple device

I am also looking for any comparision review on how WA7 or bifrost/lyr works for  Q701

does anyone have any issue with crosstalk using the Wa7?
post #465 of 1370

no issue with crosstalk... one interesting thing i noticed the other day however is after powering off the WA7 it continues to play at volume for a good 30 seconds.  Definitely no shortage of reserve power in those supply caps.  Is this normal for a tube amp?
