WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!! - Page 51

post #751 of 1409

same PSU as mine, corsair is keep pushing a lot of power to provide gamers with what they need, thats why i think its one of the worse PSUs for an Audiophile :<

Holy, listening to some Tiesto right now and the bass I'm hearing right now is great :basshead:

 

I'm able to turn up the volume on the WA7 more than I was able to before. Anything after 9 o clock was fatiguing before. Now I can get it to about 10 o clock or a little past that and the bass is just thumping! Awesome lol.

 

Anyone running their WA7 on a surge protector should try running straight to the wall and see if you notice a difference as well.

Buying this for my WA7, will compare to with it plugged into this, my standard surge protection, and the wall (I'm wary about the wall since the power source/building is very very old)

I use this right now with my current setup and it definitely better than using UPS I'm using for my computer

I have not tried the iUSB but a very very reasonable alternative I bought 2 of is the HiFiMeDIY USB isolator.

 

http://hifimediy.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=122

 

It is a passive isolator with power filtering so not quite the same as the iUSB but it does not need separate power and is a lot cheaper and sounds great.  I would love to see some electrical performance specs comparing the two but for the price and convenience and compactness it is definitely worth it.

 

They sell a Async Sabre DAC too with also includes a USB->optical converter which I have a couple of is also very nice.  Great sound from the DAC.  I use one at work for the DAC to drive the WA7 and the other at home for the optical to drive my HeadRoom Ultra Amp.

Hard to beat the price on either unit.

seems to be a cheaper alternative :3 i will recommend it to new audiophile friends who don't wana spend a lot at the start

The UM Miracle + WA7 (Golden Pins) is just super!! the Treble and Bass is there where the mids which usually few people called dry just went super mids!!! really nice <3 WA7 can fix anything :3

anyone tried mixing the tubes?

1 sovtek and 1 EH gold? I wonder if this would make it more warm yet balanced.

omg, you guys should try this!

I just mixed the tubes, EH gold on the left and sovtek on the right.

 

It now has huge deep bass yet clear extended highs and soundstage.

tremendous!

i dont want the bass to be deep, i like it to be tight, for the highs i like it to be extended to the max yes, yet i assume you gained more mids right?  

but how come the Treble still extended although you took out one EH tube? cause two x EH is extended, but are you saying it was the same?

So, if it's one tube per channel, wouldn't the sound be unbalanced?​:blink:
