    Mine finally bit the dust last night - will no longer present the DAC to my machines no matter how long I leave it on first. My WA7 is toast unless I get a DAC to put in the chain :frowning2:

    Unfortunately that means I can't attend my scheduled headphone meet up this coming Saturday

    I just got a gen 1 wa7/wa7tp, mistakenly installed the gen2 XMOS driver. Used that for a week and actually had no problems with the amp or connection. Then I discovered that I should have been using the gen1/wa7d Cmedia driver and installed that. Question to HiFiGuy528, do you expect this to make a difference in sound? I actually think it improved, but I am not sure if it's placebo and I don't want to reinstall drivers again to find out.

    The audio driver is purely for Windows compatibility. Does not impact the sound. Windows 10 Creators Edition now supports USB2 natively, just like a Mac does.

    First Gen WA-7 owner here. Bought second hand without a manual. Can't seem to get any output from the RCA, no matter where the three-way switch is set. Options are Optical/USB/RCA - no joy with any of them. Does anyone recall if the first-gen is capable of pre-amp out via the RCA cables? No copies of the (1st gen) owner's manual online.

    Cheers!

    Those are inputs if I remember correctly. Actually inputs when the switch is set to RCA, outputs for USB. Not sure they do anything when set to Optical since the DAC would have no power. My guess is they are only outputs with USB setting and assuming your USB is powered.
