Let me know how that goes. If I like the iUSB, the Gemini cable will probably be next on my list to get. :D

Please share both your impressions here.

I'm still undecided whether to get an "audiophile" USB cable or go for the iUSB.

Gemini cable will be in the pipeline should I decide to get the iUSB.

 

Now still tube rolling between the Sovtek and EH.

Also just ordered a pair of Reflector tubes from eBay

Hello -,

 

I am thinking about buying WOO QA7 for the following use; I thought to get some input from current owners based their experience before doing so.

 

  • Is it a good match with LCD-2 and MacBook pro as source?
  • I am mainly listening to classical, soundtracks, melodies, vocals, Bluz, rock and pop (in the order given, so very few rock and pop and lots of classical and soundtracks). Although it is mostly the headphone that can affect the listening experience on different genre but I guess the DAC/AMP has effects too.
  • Can WA7 be used to drive desktop active speakers or it is not designed for those kind of use at all? 

 

Thank you.

You can drive active speakers but you going to use amp built into speakers instead of WA7
post #832 of 1409

I have both LCD2 and HD800.

Also the WA7 and the Pan Am.

 

Bass is really deep tight and weighty compared to the Pan Am.

Sound stage is wider too.

 

and the DAC is more detailed than the one in the Pan Am.

Also using it as a DAC to drive my Adam A8Xs.

 

Splendid combo!

Thank you.

The RCA plugs at the rear can be switched to line-out, i.e the signal from your MBP is converted by the WA7 DAC and then the signal is send to you active speakers through RCA cables.
Hope that helps

Shini, when are you receiving your Gemini cable?

 

Also, just curious, what headphones are you running with your WA7?

sadly there was so many delaying on my cable :< will get it on saturday, also i am using a UM Miracle + pure silver 6N cable from Bocur audio, did burn it in for like 100 hours, will see how smoother the sound will be with the Gemini cable. 

might switch the Miracle to the stock cable for few hours then go back to the silver cable that i really doubt its quality atm, for some reason the Treble with it seems muddy in few tracks, something is wrong with it and i don't know i feel the treble is extended yet not as clean/clear/smooth depend on the track. 

getting silver widow cable this month though.

the Gemini cable is here, the sound is cleaner!!, how did i notice? i can turn the volume higher without getting annoyed with harshness, even more than before although i was fine with the iUSB alone yet i wanted to squeeze it even more, i might buy the other Gemini , the one from the PC to the iUSB itself, there is another Gemini Version. 

the cable might be pricey from the benefit that i got, i mean 179$ yes a lot, but if you got a good dac/amp/headphone/cable then the ifi usb cables are the last things you should get.
 
unless you are using PC powered DAC then i say the iUSB is a must here, the Gemini comes after finding a good amp or after market cable for the iem/headphone.


was cleaning the WA7's dac with ifi products worth it? YES!! i can't use the WA7's DAC alone again and i won't!!! 



Used Miracle with stock cable and the WA7 was with the upgraded tubes,  will post few updates once my gold/silver hybrid cable is here next week, it will make the headphone cleaner and then i will see how clean the system without the headphone stock cable getting in the way.

The Wall Street Journal listed the WA7 as one of the years best listening devices

Thanks.
