Btw, can you order the WA7 with europlug and appropriate voltage options straight from the manufacturer without hassle?

On your last questions, they don't come with any power cord and USB cable, so you have to purchase them yourself. It is clearly stated in their website.
As for the appropriate voltage, there is a switch at the bottom of the power supply unit that let you select 115 or 230V, so it is very staright forward.
Can't answer you on the pairing with HD650 and Momentum as I never tried the WA7 with the 2 cans

Sorry to be repetitive but you will never regret pairing WA7 with HD650

I really wasn't impressed with the WA7 and the Momentum. There didn't seem to be any synergy and it sounded better with the Dragonfly.

Mickey did you dig the WA7 when you owned the HD700?
post #995 of 1369
For me HD700 sound way better than HD650 with WA7, that's why I bought HD700 and sold HD650 right after that

Didn't have them at the same time.  Went through a lot of changes in the late summer and pretty much replaced everything. (being the irresponsible HeadFi'er that I am).  Liked the HD700 with the Lyr/Bifrost and I'm sure that I would have liked them with the WA7.

Now that I've got my end-game DAC.. I'm getting the itch to get the WA7  again (this time in black) and call it a day. Just wish they made an AMP only version.

Agree with the sentiment above, I do wish there was an AMP-only variant of this device. The DAC is commendable, but not outstanding. Other than that, it's a beautiful piece of hardware.

Right now, my cheap WA7 amp only replacement is the Schiit Vali until I can go Woo again, either the WA7 or WA6 - gotta have Woo tubes!

The Vali is a tube amp :veryevil: Pretty nice in fact for the low $ - missing the beauty of the Woo tubes:wink_face:

I am losing most of the Woo amps except my WA5 which I own. Jack getting his all back next week.  I have that one and that is all I really need for the main listening room and upstairs I will  review units for a while until i like something strong enough to buy it.

when will the tube power supply be released?

post #1004 of 1369

You need to send Jack an email on that. last time I asked him it the first quarter. I finished my consulting gig there.

Today I'm sudden noticed the right side is louder. To determine the problem was HE-500 or WA7, I have tested with Icon HDP and used the USB mode of WA7 ==> the problem is WA7 :angry_face:

 

I did swap the tubes to see if the left will louder because my WA7 have one tube brigher than other ==> same result, the right side still louder.

 

I also try to test with some IEMs, the problem present with IEM slightly less than full can.

 

Have anyone experience this issue with WA7 or other amp? Is it normal or I should return for warranty?

 

Current I have to change the soundcard balance setting to 100 for the Left and 80 for the Right

 

Thanks
