    WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!!

    I agree as well.  I was lucky enough to get a black unit with smoked glass.  However, as the new PSU's will not have the smoked glass the combo will look a bit disjointed. Ho hum...

    The Decware TABOO MK 111 Thread

    Dan, I'm afraid I have virtually the same problem.  I received my amp last April but did not notice a problem until this fall because I was only using my Senn HD600 and AKG 702.  I tried my Grados in mid-November as someone mentioned decent synergy and I was immediately faced with a significant...

    WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!!

    My first pair of EH tubes only lasted 4 months before a major channel imbalance.  However, my current pair is about the same age with no problems.  I use my WA7 most of the day every work day.  I hope these EH tubes last as I'm not very fond of the stock Sovteks.

    Anyone still love their Darths?

    I got mine in Jan 2009 - deep cup black palm VXD3.  I have no intention of ever getting rid of them.  I am not a basshead but once in a while they are a lot of fun.  I have definitely found that if you hook em up to a dark amp your head implodes.  Wearing them for a long time only slowly...

    MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones

    Hey Matt, thanks for the tip. Do you have to take the cable off when you use the 1300?  and is there room in the case for the cable? I believe I read the e-valucon connection is easy to dis/re-connect so maybe removing the cable when transporting is not a problem. Thanks!

    Glad you finally received it! Are you getting the sparkling treble you prefer?

    The Decware TABOO MK 111 Thread

    I also have not found many tracks that work well with the Lucid modes.  However, as of yet, all my cans are dynamic and SE so I thought maybe this was the reason for my impression of the Lucid modes.   In an effort to decide between purchasing the LCD-3 and the LCD-X, I was trying to...

    The Decware TABOO MK 111 Thread

    Do these comments from Decware suggest the Taboo will be more appealing (using Lucid modes) with the Audeze LCD-2/3 (60/45 ohms) than the LCD-X (22 ohms)?

    WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!!

    I believe Cryoset has not had the cryo EH 6C45PI gold pins for quite some time.  I contacted them to find out when they would get more and they replied that they were no longer able to get them from their supplier.  I don't know the full impact of that statement...

    The Decware TABOO MK 111 Thread

    It got me thinking about identifying some noise I found unbearable the other night when I tried my Grados.  I plan on going through my whole system step-wise to identify where sound is getting in over the coming holiday weekend.  Power, tubes, negative energy, ground loop, cross-cable...

    I hope it's good news.  I check the website at least once a day to see if there's any life.  After nearly a month of not even a twitch I thought it was dead...

    MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Review (and comparison with HD600 and K701)

    zowki, I am greatly looking forward to receiving my AD and recreating a good part of your experience with my HD600 & K702 and about half of the same recordings. Now I have to research the ODAC/O2 to get a sense of its sound signature. Thanks much for the work!

    The Decware TABOO MK 111 Thread

    x3 on the Taboo, Turbo!  I generally shy away from blonde wood for anything but with the black top the maple(?) makes a striking contrast.  Very nice! x2 on the desk.  I wish I could keep a desk looking so tidy.

    Thanks for the heads-up Thune. I'll be interested to see how and if this develops.

    Woo Audio Amp Owner Unite

    This is a quote from someone at CanJam.  Does anyone know what he's referring to?  I'm assuming he's talking about the WA7 but I have not heard of any changes to the power supply.

      Thanks Greed.  Looks like a consensus. It's nice that the connectors are readily available but my lack of soldering skills might kill my Dog.  That would be sad...

    MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones

      Thanks, that sounds great.  Photos make them appear a bit fat and maybe stiff but looks can be deceiving...such as the Denon D5000 cable that looks good in photos but is a bit annoying in real life.

    Would anyone early-owners care to comment on the cable flexibility?

    MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones

      I got excited there for a second:  "Wait, that can't be mine...mine shouldn't be here for a few weeks..."   I'm only aware of two Head-Fiers in Alaska and it seems we'll both have Alpha Sled Dogs.   "If you're not the Alpha Dog the view never changes."

    Norne Audio (Was: Norse Audio): Feedback & Impression Thread

    It looked like things were progressing from mid-July to mid-August. Now in mid-September the recovery seems to have stalled. I hope that's not the case. I wonder what company took exception to Trevor's brand? Nordost? That would be annoying.

    The All-New WA7 Fireflies from Woo Audio

    Quote: Thanks for the reply.  I suspect you're correct in that it's poor luck.  The Sovteks are not bad actually, I just prefer the brighter, more open EH tube signature a bit more.  $85 - $100 more?  Hmmmmm...

    The All-New WA7 Fireflies from Woo Audio

    Quote:   Has anyone had their EH tubes go outta wack?  Mine developed a serious channel imbalance which seemed to be more evident when switched to high impedence.  I swapped in the Sovteks and the imbalance is gone.  I've been using my WA7 with the EH's at work nearly every workday since...
