What is this Mysterious Box? (Setup Favorites #1)

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

What's up everybody this is Danny today I'm going to show you something on my desk that I've been getting a ton of questions about and I'm going to start the series called setup favourites where I'm going to go into specific detail about some of the things that are on my desk and in my setup and my setup tour is coming very soon with two deaths so be excited for that these videos here will give you a more in-depth look at a product that you might be curious about when you see them in my upcoming videos this incredible looking and mysterious box is the blue audio wa7 fireflies and this is the product that it really got

Me interested in exploring audio beyond just a decent pair of headphones and an audio player by no means am I an audiophile let's just say that I'm more Audio aware at this time so the more audio stuff that I get to play with and the more I learn about the more you're going to see on this channel so you're going to come on this dirty with me and this is the first tube amp with the built-in DAC that I've ever had and let me just say this I am blown away for those of you that don't know what this is this is a amplifier with a built-in digital to analog converter so it's

Going to amplify and make almost any sound better especially if he was higher in headphones with higher impedance they need more power to drive them that's the only way to get the full potential out of it I want to clear up a huge misconception when it comes to amplifiers like the wa7 Firefly's most people think that you need some super expensive headphones to hear the difference on them and that is absolutely not true even headphones like the audio technica m50x –is that are very affordable sounds much better thanks how much fuller richer and these

Soundscape changes no matter what type of music that you're listening to when I'm on the road I can't take this with me so I take my Opel ha2 se for my mobile need but whoooo do did recently put out there w a portable battery-powered vacuum tube amp and I think it's the first of its kind and if it's the same power as this in a portable form factor I can't wait to try it out the combo I've been using the most on my desk is my favorite all-around headphones these are the Opel PM 3 planner magnetic headphones and while I own a decent amount of

Headphones in this class I just don't think any sound as good as these overall so plugging these into the wa7 the sound is so much better than just plugging into your laptop or smartphone for people that don't think there much of a difference trust me it's very noticeable and tube amps actually give off a warmer sound signature which I absolutely love I used to be a DJ I still own a ton of vinyl over there so if you're familiar with the vinyl sound signature then this is very close to that which is an absolute win in my book it's actually shocking how much it

Reduces noise it's virtually silent and you may even hear stuff in your music that you've never heard before even though you heard it a thousand times and when it's paired with the great pair of headphones it's really awesome it's really hard to express over video so if you ever get a chance to try out something like the wa7 fireflies with an amplifier and a built-in deck then do it because it may change the way you listen to your music forever so here are a few things that I think that stand out about the wa7 fireflies this is the second generation the build quality is

Top-notch I mean just look at this thing it's a work of art in my opinion it just looks amazing on the desk no screws or anything visible the unit is nice and compact because the power supply is external and I'd rather have it this way it looks much cleaner this glass piece on the top is purely for design but it looks damn cool anyways has cut out for these six c-45 tubes and what's cool is that you can remove these and upgrade later or replace them if something goes wrong and there are RCA ports on the back to plug in other audio devices or use other decks with it to modify your

Audio journey which I plan to experiment with as I obtained other decks and learn more about audio setup is really easy just two things to plug in and then you connect it via USB into your computer and that's it the one thing that I wish was different is that the switches are on the back of the unit but I guess they had to do this to make the wa7 look nicer from the front so I understand a decision but sometimes it can be a little hard to reach to maximize the sound I recommend some type of lossless audio formats to keep things simple I listen to my music on title which has

Higher audio quality streaming but even if you listen to music on Spotify you won't be disappointed everything just sounds better and this powers me through my late-night edits and long projects so I hope you guys enjoyed that closer look at the wa7 fireflies I know it's for my audio enjoyment only but I absolutely love it a lot of people are interested in hi-fi audio right now I think this is a great start it's not cheap but it's a great value for what you get the design is there the sound is there the flexibility is there and you'll continue to see it's on my desk

So now you know what it is so now you know what it is so if you have any questions make sure you get me up on social media I'm most active on Twitter at super-scientific so ask away or just come say hi make sure you keep out for the other videos that are coming especially the set up tour and I will see you guys in the next one
