Honestly, just live with the stock unit for a month or two. Get to know its sound and nuances with your favorite music and then decide if there is anything lacking.
- A decent USB cable is nice but you don't have to go nuts. I use an AudioQuest Cinnamon USB cable.
- Tubes: Most say they prefer the EH Gold Pins - in my system, I personally prefer the sock tubes
- DAC - Yes, the internal DAC is probably not up to par relative to the amp - I've tried a few but stayed with the internal DAC - YMMV
What headphones will you be using? Anyway, enjoy the journey. The WA7 is a really nice unit.
