Looking forward to observations
The reality is that ALL power supplies have limits and sometimes real world usage places demands that a power supply has to compensate for it it cannot deliver and different power supplies behave differently under loads and extreme loads.
only on paper with an ideal load, is a power supply rated & assumed as spec,
when in reality many things can be going on under load.

Virtue is its own punishment. 

 

I was told it wouldn't ship till the middle of May (I was one of the very first orders) and cancelled my order.   Done with Woo's crummy customer service.

Woo offers "early bird" ordering of the WA7tp and you cancel your order because you're upset about bad customer service? I don't get that. Seems to me that it's an example of good customer service for extending the early bird offer.

1) There are lots of good amps out there.  I have two. 

 

2) No, I wouldn't.

tube rolling the WA7tp should be fun.

I'd be curious to know what tubes Jack has been using at meets and shows, and also know what tubes he recommends for upgrades from stock. I'm hoping that Warren and Kevin will weigh in on upgrade tube impressions when they review the WA7tp.

I'm also somewhat surprised not to hear anything about the WA7tp at AXPONA 2014. I know it was there because Chris Connaker posted a photo of one at his Computer Audiophile website. Word is that the sound of the rooms at AXPONA was less than stellar but I wouldn't think that headphone listening would be as adversely affected.

Over in the Woo Audio WA7TP (tube power supply) Impressions Thread, olegausany mentioned that they were Jan Sylvania 5814A.  I'm definitely going to have to secure a few pairs to try.  Frank I is also saying that I need RCA clear tops for the WA7 proper, so I'll probably want to pick those up as well.  I know Kevin's got a LOT more in the way of tube options, and is eager to try them out.

Scot Hull wrote something up in Part-Time Audiophile... although I think he got confused and thought the WA7tp was a whole new amp.  I know Brian Hunter of Audio-Head got to take home the show units for review, so I think he'll be chiming in as well.

There are a lot of options when it comes to 12AU7 tubes.  We are currently testing to see which brand is best for the WA7tp and will offer it to our customers as an upgrade path.  Stay tuned.

$99 Au from the Australian agent express ship included

Would be cheaper direct from Woo inside US I would think

post #119 of 192
If you're talking about A2A i think they would come pretty close when you factor in shipping in exchange rate. Also the guys there are great and i would suggest giving them a call before buying anything online.
post #120 of 192

Yes A2A, they are very good don't know how they keep the prices so close given GST, exchange and two shipping costs

Just saying that for a US customer it would be less than that

I always check A2A first bought my WA7 from them and HD800
