I have encountered this with my iMac too - just unplug your usb cable and plug it back in and it's fixed.

Haven't read this topic. But. Just have to ask. Why the F(pardon my French) you made the glass w/o strong conjuction? Srsly must make ppl nervous putting it back after every time they move it for few mm accidently  touching it.

It stays on there pretty well, and trust me, this thing will not move, if I remember correctly, its 13 pounds..

I think at the least they should have affixed those little clear triangle rubber feet to the amp.  Kind of a hassle those things and easy to lose.

 

Got the TubMan tubes and they are awesome!  NOS Cryo-treated, very nice.  Sound better then the EH IMHO.

Anyone?

No but you can use any DAC you want by connecting it using RCA cable and switching the switch on the back

Still wishing someone would show the WA7 internals... perhaps there is a DAC upgrade option in terms of pin compatible chip. Also would like to know how the DAC ref rails are or aren't isolated from the usb power.

I ordered the nos cryo tubes also and right out of the box they are way better than the Sovteks. Glad I got them - thanks for the heads up!

I finally bit the bullet and got the Fireflies. Now I'm on the hunt for cans to pair this with.

I know that this is very subjective.

Any suggestions on what pair to get?
Hd800
Hifiman 6
Audeze lcd-x
Audeze lcd-x3

I prefer the hd800. Just not sure if the wa7 will really give it justice.

HD800 is a good choice.
To me, WA7 managed to tame down the 800 treble that can be fatiguing for longer listening session and add some weight to the bass.
If you think the HD800 deserves better, you can always aim for WA7 bigger brothers like the WA2 or 22 in the future when you think you have outgrown the WA7.... lol!
The planars are not for me as my treshold for their discomfort level is quite low.
I can only listen to the LCD2/3 for 20-30 minutes as I can't take the weight and it's clamping force

Ive got the hd800 and wa7. The bleeding highs and siblance are still there.... maybe because im using silver cables.... but I think I have outgrown the wa7... just ordered 2 x questyle cma800r and a yulong da8 to be my end game setup

Thanks for the info akhyar.
Was looking at the WA2 but chose this because of the higher missus approval rating factor.

There are a lot better amplifiers in terms of performance... but you'll be hard-pressed to find one that looks this good.

There was a topic regarding this a few months back. I think the conclusion was that the DAC in the WA7 was slightly better than the bifrost. If you look up "how good is the wa7 dac?" or something along those lines you will find the thread. Started by Sonido.
