There are many options on 12AU7 tube.  We are currently testing which brand would be best for us to offer as an upgrade path.  Stay tuned.

 

Test this!  :D

Yes, this.  I think.  Lemme see what happens when I try to use the WA7d as a USB DAC - just to be sure.

 

Lol, I just remembered that this is not possible.  :D

My bet would be Genelex Gold Lion .

my guess too since they've been using new production tubes for the wa7. I looked for impressions on those but many have overlooked them since they're not NOS.

What I'm REALLY curious about is how long is that power cable that connects the WA7tp to the WA7? Haven't seen a single photo of what that looks like...

It's the same one that currently connects the WA7p (solid state power supply) to the WA7... about 4 ft long if I remember correctly?

They need to ship these with a 1' cable to be honest.  We all care about sound quality more then putting 2 units that look like they belong right next to each other 4' apart.

post #82 of 1110

Agreed. I'd pay for a shorter cable personally.

post #83 of 1110
I would assume that the most blurry slowest bassy "sounding" tubes may be the best!
Why? Because I would assume they would be the one to pass off the most current in my mind.
Just a speculation though. .

Just got an email from Woo saying they were working on a 1' cable which they should have ready in 2 weeks to order.  No cable is included.  Would be nice for us early adopters to throw in the 1' cable.

post #85 of 1110

Yeah, there really should be an option for the early adopters to get a 1' cable instead, especially since most people haven't received their TP's yet. The long power cable made sense before, since we were trying to create some distance between the SS power supply and the actual amp (and preserve the WA7's minimalistic good looks) -- now that we want to show off the PS too (like in the promo pics), that short cable will be essential!

 

edit: Was a price given for the 1' cable?

no price was given but in my opinion I would at the very least like this to be delivered alongside my 2 tp orders so that I can immediately start using it properly and to avoid the additional shipping and packaging etc.  Cut a cavity in the foam next to the WA7tp and throw in the 1' cable for us early birds Mr Woo please.  Charge me for it if you want but include it in the box please so my out of box experience is a good one. 

post #87 of 1110

Thanks for the info groovyd. 

 

My WA7tp already shipped, so I'll be using the stock cable until the 1' cable is offered. Would have it been nice to have immediately? Sure, but I'm not going to complain given this was an early adopter offer.

post #88 of 1110

price for the 1' cable is $40 if shipped together with the WA7tp, not sure if this is the same price if ordered separately.  One of my tp is on the way so guess I will be in the same boat.

post #89 of 1110

should be plenty of reviews soon... assuming at least a few have already received theirs...
