post #16 of 25
This WA7 is beautiful, but the price is absolutely not comfortable at all... I paid >$500 for my yulong d18+ $400 for Audio-gD NFB6 and i still feel this combo better than wa7 (compair with wa7 at showroom)

Thread Starter 

Thanks for the comments everyone. I figured everyone was like me and has a short attention span when it comes to Youtube videos, so I tried my best to make it visually interesting and to-the-point. Not to mention, I wanted to go over the controls so people could get a feel for how the WA7 is actually used.

Am I normal people?

 

I wish to see inside the WA7.

 

I thought about that, as I'm curious to see inside, but I don't have a large enough wrench to open it.

Norse Audio, but he is in the process of changing his business name at the moment and not taking orders. Many of the good cable makers seem to be overwhelmed at the moment.

I wonder if that is because the DAC is better? The WA7's amp is a lot better than the DAC I reckon, but it also is a lot neater -- you ARE paying for the neat case AND for that glass block! ;)

I used to own a burson HA-160 and an audiogd DAC19DSP and i feel that the WA7 is at least as good if not better than that combo.

 

The DAC may not be as good but the amp section more than made up for that shortcoming.

would really like to own one but sadly I'm financially incapable to do so ....miss the warm sound that tubes produce, giving life to vocals.

 

Poor kid expose to the wonders of high quality audio but has little means to afford them. haha

with a bit of hard work and smart spending / investing, shouldn't be beyond anyone really. I started owning some pretty impressive stuff at the age of 16

Excellent job on the video. I bought my WA7 a month or so ago and i have been listening to HD600's, Amperiors, and Triple Fi10's on it. I was not a fan of the way the HD600 sounds with it but the Amperiors sound awesome. The TF10, well jury is still out on that but for the price, the fact it handles IEM's with tubes, has a DAC scalable to 32/192, can be used with powered monitors or headphones by flipping a switch from "USB" to "D/A" and workmanship i think the price is justified.

Its like a swiss-army tube amp and i think it does everything really well with nothing much lacking.

Thats said i have no experience with other DAC's so i can't compare but i was thinking about running a Centrance Dacport into this from my PC.
