  What is this sorcery! No words can describe the emotions flowing out of me right now... the magic it imbued my HD650 with. I've never heard the HD650 in this light. I'm just completely overwhelmed. I now understand why people spend thousands of dollars on this hobby.

 
We often say, it's easy to make a loud amplifier.  It's not so easy to make a musical sounding amplifier.  Happy to hear you're enjoying your WA7 system.

The WA7 / HD650 combo is quite tasty.  Rock on.

Just got mine from Massdrop last week.  Quite happy with it but I just wanted to know how hot does it get after running it for about 5-6 hours?  My gets to the point where it feels like I'm holding a really warm to near hot cup of coffee for a lack of a better description.  I can keep my hand on it but it's not exactly comfortable to keep it there.
 
 
Thanks for any info!

Got my WA7d from Massdrop earlier this week. Currently just using it with Shure SE535's, though will be pairing it with the AKG K7XX from Massdrop also, and a pair of LCD2s or TH900's as soon as I've decided which to go for (leaning towards the latter)!
 
It's currently sitting in use on my desk under my monitors, and will probably be staying there for the foreseeable future...

HD800 owners -- Are you using hi-z or lo-z when listening to the HD800?

might be best to use the hi as the 800's have a 300 ohm impedance..

I think it is better on hi-z but I run the HE500 on my Wa7 most of the time on lo-z and I am Lazy so I tend to leave it and run the HD800 on lo-z
Perhaps that is why I prefer the HE500 on the Wa7 now that I think about it
Really depends which sounds better to you the HD800 works either way

No.  Just leave it on high Z unless you're using something that sounds great out of a phone.  No...an HD650 or HD800 do not sound good out of a phone for the potential incoming bonehead...
