    that'll be a very nice setup. i'm all for it! [​IMG]
     
    FWIW, i've had fully balanced setups a few different times and somehow always go back to SE...don't know why, just happens that way. good luck!

    You can purchase WA7tp at a later date.  The cost is $649 + shipping.

    Consider our WDS-1 reference DAC.  It doesn't have all the bells and whistles as other DACs on the market, but if it's the sound you're after, WDS-1 will not disappoint.

    Can you tell us what dac chip the wds-1 uses & is it the same dac used today as when it was released.  How about some pics of it's innards, I can't find any thanks..

    abvolt, that would be my dream DAC ! Are you considering getting it for your wa7 set-up ? Most likely that would be my next upgrade.

    Wow, I'll double that. Tell us why it came out so sweet and what philosophy/board logic is behind it.
    M-DAC is pretty damn sweet to my ears, its just not powerful enough (tad lil' bit) to drive hd800.

    We can talk DAC chips all day and name drop parts brands, but at the end of the day it's the final result that matters - the music.  I urge you to give WDS-1 a try.  We don't make products with fancy parts to catch eyeballs.  We design and build solid, tried and true, no gimmicks, timeless products.

    that may be true but most equipment fanatics like to know what makes a product great on the inside.  at the end of the day most of us are geeks and enjoy the blinky lights.  i'd love to see internal shots of Woo products, especially the WA7+tp as those are what I have.

    We designed a custom screw head and tool for WA7 so people can't open it.  We're chiefs with a secret recipe.  [​IMG]

    inside the WA7 is a smaller WA7.  Inside that one a smaller one.   Then a smaller one.   Then a smaller one.  And a smaller one. 
     
     
    In all seriousness though, the WDS-1 is one of only a couple of DACs I could imagine wanting to share desk-space with my WA7 + WA7tp.    However, I always thought it would be cool if Woo released a standalone upgraded (tube) DAC in the same style case as the WA7.  Imagine three of these units lined up on a desk.
     
     
    Maybe one day......

    Just look at Woo's website http://www.wooaudio.com/products/wds1.html  You'll see they use a Texas Instruments PCM 1795 http://www.ti.com/product/pcm1795

    Doesn't really stop the thief, only the curious.

    Hey everyone, I've been eyeballing this for setup for quite a while and with the Massdrop currently going on, I decided to join the fun.  Aside from the Mullards and Sylvania's, does anyone have any recommendations for other tubes to try from upscaleaudio?  I've already got the Mullards in my cart but I really hate to pay for shipping since I'm so close to free shipping.  My current cans are LCD-2 rev1, LCD-3f, TH-900, K7XX, HE-500 and hoping to add the HD800's down the road.  I typically enjoy more of a warm/dark sound but I'm open to trying different sound signatures.  Since I'm new to tubes any help would be appreciated!

    get 2 sets incase you have an issue with one.  eventually you will be glad you did.
