Delivers Legendary D/A Conversion plus Digital Amplification in an Undersized Package with Oversized Performance
To complement the hugely successful 170iTransport, Wadia has developed new technologies that enable us to once again bring simplicity and elegance to a new and dramatically more affordable Wadia decoding product — the Wadia 151 PowerDAC mini (SRP: $1,195). The Wadia 151 takes all of the conceptual purity of the original Reference PowerDAC and reduces these elements to their most cost effective form.
“The musical performance is immediate, precise, and pure,” commented John W. Schaffer, President, Wadia Digital. “No other digital to analog conversion product offers this level of decoding accuracy combined with amplification in a single, simple to use, modestly priced product.” “The 151 PowerDAC mini has realized the goal of a direct connection between your music and your speakers.”
The 151 PowerDAC mini measures 2″x 8″x 8″ (H/W/D); making it an ideal audio solution for modern living and work spaces. Wadia incorporates two SPDIF digital coax inputs, one Toslink input and one USB input for easy connection with most computers and digital sources. Rated at 50 watts (4 ohms), it has the power to drive many currently available speakers. With an LED Backlit Display, volume control, mute, phase and input buttons on its face and an IR remote control; the 151 is elegant in its simplicity.
Added Schaffer: “For over 20 years, Wadia Digital has been analyzing and researching every feasible way to improve digital conversion, with the goal of providing the best possible musical and emotional experience from digital audio source material. The significant legacy of patents and innovation is among the most important and proud aspects of Wadia history.”
Wadia Digital’s 151 PowerDAC mini will be shipping in Black and Silver finishes for Fall 2009 and will be available at select high-end audio specialists.
