That means it'll be magical with my Paradox!(most likely)

Just some initial notes:

 

- Very nice full sound 

- Vocals sound good and the WA7 takes away any harshness I experienced on warm tracks with the Fostex TH-900's.

 

Definitely has some "gooch-wrenching" bass, however I'm finding it kind of problematic on bass heavy hip-hop tracks. The bass is sometimes boomy. Hopefully that goes away as it breaks in.

 

Ran the upgrade EH tubes straight out of the box so I still plan on switching them out eventually just so I can try the stock tubes and compare. Anyone know how the two pairs of tubes compare bass-wise?

 

Love the build quality on the WA7. Volume pot is super nice and smooth, no issues with channel imbalance or anything like that when adjusting volume.

 

The amp is dead silent when connected to the USB DAC from my PC. I can max out the volume pot and hear nothing... nice black background.

Give the tubes at least 30 hours before switching or comparison

leaning towards the Wa7 over the Wa2 for my Beyerdynamic T1's...mostly for listening and gaming with a macbook and a pc...any suggestions on what else I would need? I need another DAC? power supply? cables? av surge protector?

I'm using the stock tubes and will be for a few more weeks before going to the EH. I have the EH on hand so the swap will be easy.

i am going to use the EH tubes most of the time, will switch to stock when i wana enjoy the luch sweet mids of the vocals, depend on the mood though.

 

unless the EH tubes won't make the TH900's mids sound receded it is another story,  so far i don't know cause my WA7 is on the way.

True... I got a chance to try Matt's AD and it blew me away.  Definitely on my bucket list to order some soon.

nope, just plug and play... this is the fundamental beauty of the WA7, sounding great as is.

Highly recommending the matched EH tubes from Cryoset.  Very nice sound, even better then the EH from Woo.

I believe Cryoset has not had the cryo EH 6C45PI gold pins for quite some time.  I contacted them to find out when they would get more and they replied that they were no longer able to get them from their supplier.  I don't know the full impact of that statement...

repped, thanks. If that's the case, what should my progression be for things i need...

possibly upgrade tubes and add PSU

usb cables/dac? if so, what dac would be ideal? Seems like people have mixed feelings on the wa7 dac
