So, what was the conclusion about power cables.. 15amps, 125 volts or 110 volts?

From the specifications list: "Mains supply: 100 - 120 V, 220 - 240 V, 50/60 Hz, user selectable" This applies to both WA7 and WA7d.
I think we should belabour the point that everyone checks this selection BEFORE plugging it in. Especially for countries that use the higher voltage.
If not the first, and last thing you may hear is a loud POP.

Mike from Woo pointed me to a generic 125v 15amp cord. I don't really know how AC powers work all that well, but that seems to be out of spec. I think I just need to be educated a bit more

we did preset the voltage in accordance to the shipping destination. However, it is best to double check upon arrival just to be sure. (Y)

For best performance, consider http://www.nordost.com/products/power-cords/norse/heimdall-2-ac-power-cord.php . @HiFiGuy528 will 100% approve this.
For something more economical, I personally got the Audioquest NRG-2 (http://www.audioquest.com/power-cables/nrg-2) and I couldn't be happier.
There's definitely a noticeable difference for the NRG-2 vs generic, but be warned that the treble is going to sound a bit harsh because yes, the power cord needs burn in too. I'm serious! But everything became more dynamic and tighter. Well worth it and you can pick this up at your local Best Buy retailer (if you live in US).
