I have been using the WA7 for about 2 hours this morning , I am in Florida so its pretty cool right now around about 19-20c in my room.
The Temps i am getting from my Ryobi TEK4 i used to use for reptile cage installs so it's fairly accurate, are as follows
 
The PSU for the WA7 is at 30.5c warm to the touch but not to hot!
The Top of the unit with the glass removed is 32.7c
The metal on the top of the tubes is get,ing up to around 71.6 to hot to touch
 
No burning or odd smell,s 
 
I will leave it on for a while to day and give some other numbers after lets say 8-10 hours!
 
hope this helps hehe!

alwaysec: IMPORTANT! Have you turned the PSU over to check that it is set to 220V? Someone asked this before but I didn't see you answer.

After about 5 hours the Temp has gone up quite a bit 
 
The PSU is reading 34.4
The top case without glass is 35.5c
And the metal on the top of the tubes is at a whooping 114.4c
 
So the tubes have gotten very hot over the past few hours as expected but the case and the PSU seem to hold it very well!

It seems i may have one of these very hot units as well. The sound and everything coming from it is sublime, but its still awfully hot. Touching it after running 5 hours to burn in, the glass and the psu are scalding at 24 degrees ambient temperature. I don't have a thermometer to measure the actual temp, but lets just say I'm unable to carry the units after they've been left to run for 3 hours straight.

After 8 hours the temps on mine are about the same as they where at 5 "a few degree's less even"
 
And Always i would contact a2a in case they have some sort of dealer warranty threw WOO i am not sure how it works,
but i do know they will either handle it or tell you to contact WOO audio yourself, And from my experience and what everyone else says
you should have no issues's getting it fixed or replaced WOO audio has stand up support.
