In my experience, fighting your pH is a losing battle anyways.

To put your mind more at ease, the pH will naturally drop as your tank matures, especially if you have some driftwood. If your pH is ~7.6 out of the tap, don't be surprised if the pH in your tank settles around 6.8 - 7.0. When that happens, no need to worry about matching your pH during water changes either, just add water as usual.
