New WA7d Fireflies with Two Digital Inputs - Page 3

post #31 of 46

i am using class t amplifier like topping tp 60 and some class d amp like creek evolution

is it double amping? does it effect the tube sound?

The WA7 looks really nice but and I'd like to eventually try one out.

Will the original WA7 work like this?

 

Does anyone know of anyone who makes a decent quality cable to do this?

Currawong did. You might find info on his review.

Does this mean that the DAC will be powered from the PSU instead of USB, since an optical connection obviously can't carry power?

I love my WA7, but I've never liked that I'm forced to run the DAC off of USB power.  It comes in handy when I sometimes want to quickly plug into a system where I don't need the amp portion, but for my permanent desk setup, I'd like to not use dirty USB power.  I'll probably buy an isolator someday, but for now, I can't afford to spend money on it; I need a new power amp for a set of speakers I just bought.

Ideally, it would be nice to be able to power everything off of the dedicated PSU, but have separate switches for the DAC and amp sections, as there is no reason to let the tube heaters burn your tube life away if you're only using the DAC.

We have good news on the upgrade EH tubes!  We just received our shipment and we'll get them tested and boxed for shipment next week.  Thank you everyone for your patience.  We're glad it arrived sooner than last expected.

* The headphone amp sound quality is the same as WA7
* There are 2 digital inputs - 1 USB and 1 optical
* RCA output is no longer available in this version
* You can use the 7d as a preamp by using the 1/4" output
* We plan to release the pricing for the new tube power supply the same time. Sorry but no trade-in. 

* Estimated delivery date is early May. Special pricing will be offered shortly

Any word on this? I'd like to know if there'll be any special offers for original WA7 owners looking to pick up a WA7d..? Already pre-ordered a WA7tp too!

we are currently offering WA7 owners who purchased prior to WA7tp announcement a special price of $349" for WA7tp.

 

No deadline to buy, as long as you own your WA7 prior to WA7tp announcement, we'll take care of you. :)

Sorry, I guess I read that wrong. So there will be NO special pricing for WA7 owners looking to upgrade to a WA7d?
