    I'm with you Jeb Listens & would love to own the wds-1, It would be nice to know more about the inner working before one spends 1200. on a dac. Most makers of fine audio gear like to show off their designs. Oh yes a tube dac from Woo would be very sweet indeed.
    I've heard that mike has a large collection of audio gear probably already owns the wds-1 lets take it a part & see how it works maybe take some pics too -->Lol only joking, goovyd said it best most of us really are geeks & just curious..

    Hi all I have a same question as above, my cans are K701 and HD600. And one more question that I'm new to tubes world so I like to know where did you guys purchase the tubes? Thanks!
  3. abvolt
    There are too many to name but here are a few, TubeDepot, Upscale Audio, TC Tubes you can get a lot of info from TubeWorld also enjoy &  have fun..

    A tube based DAC/pre-amp would be cool... might make me reconsider my D100 :wink:
  5. HiFiGuy528
    tube reference DAC is certainly interesting.  :)
  6. groovyd
    introducing the WA7tdac or WA7td :wink:
  7. abvolt
    I'd definitely buy one..

    I urge/challenge everyone to compare WA7's internal DAC against DACs costing up to $999 on sound alone.  You'll be surprised and pleased to know how well WA7's internal DAC stacks up.  Just use the analog RCA input on back of WA7 and switch to RCA on the 3-postiion switch.  This will turn WA7 into standalone headphone amplifier. 
    Ask yourself if you're enjoying music or are you just hearing sound.

    Thanks for telling us that mike, I'll give it a try but I have the wa7d will that still work for me..

    Thanks, I now have two sets of Mullards on the way.  Also picked up the Sylvania JANs and RCA clear tops because they weren't overly expensive.  Now I see why you guys talk about having a drawer dedicated just to tubes... but this adds some fun I wasn't expecting.  Can't wait to get my setup and see what other kinds of tubes others try out.  Would you guys recommend upgrading to the WA7d or stick with the original?  I hardly ever use toslink and when I do, it's for gaming. I can't imagine I would ever plug my PS4 directly into my WA7 without first going through my X7 or mixamp.  Anyone else have buyers remorse afterwards? Or wish they had the toslink ability?

    I've noticed that if I turn the volume control right down before powering up the TP unit I don't get that white light flash when I turn it on.  Curious to see if that works for you as well.

    Anyone know how to actually order the wa7tp by itself?  I have the WA7 from before 4/21/2014 (should still be eligible for the special offer).  I e-mailed info@wooaudio.com with the S/N asking for a quote for shipping to my location, but I haven't heard back yet. 
    Anyone know who to contact or e-mail?
  13. HiFiGuy528
    Sorry if we haven't respond to you.  Somehow we did not get your inquiry.  Please resend to mike@wooaudio.com and I'll provide you with purchasing info.

    If I buy the wa7d, can I use this rca input and use it as a standalone amp?
  15. abvolt
    No the RCA inputs on the WA7d are just that another input you would have to get the WA7 to use that option. The WA7d offers an optical input that's the difference in the 2..
