Product Description

Wadia's Newest Digital Statement


In addition to their reference-level $20,000+ digital players, Wadia has been altering the audio landscape for audiophiles over the last few years. Their revolutionary iTransport unleashed the digital signal from the iPod, changing the perception of the device completely. In development for the last three years, this new Digital-to-Analog converter (with high-end built-in preamplifier and headphone amplifier) is worlds ahead of anything else at this price. This tool is one you’ll need to audition for yourself to understand the magical sound possessed by the Wadia 121.

The Wadia 121 Decoding Computer is a high-performance DAC/digital preamplifier with a complete set of digital inputs, balanced analog outputs, digital volume control, and a headphone output section. Just connect your iTransport, Computer, Streaming Audio source, or any other digital audio source, and experience exceptional audiophile sound quality. There is simply nothing available today that delivers sound quality as realistic, and as life-like. Whatever the source, the Wadia 121 will make it sound better than you ever imagined.

Audio signals are processed using Wadia's DigiMaster patented up-sampling and filtering technology. The Wadia 121 Decoding Computer also features a clock-linked asynchronous USB input for completely jitter-free playback of computer music files. All inputs including USB accept up to 24-bit/192kHz input data rates. The Wadia 121 Decoding Computer provides true balanced and single ended analog outputs. An exceptional headphone amplifier section delivers an unsurpassed personal listening experience. With the incredible amount of Wadia's proprietary technology inside the 121 DAC, you can expect this product to set a new standard for DACs under $2,000. Our highest recommendation!
