Wadax PRE1 Ultimate Digital Preamplifier

Wadax announced the new $72,670 PRE1 Ultimate remote-controlled digital preamplifier with DIVIN phono stage, Zepto super clock, and Hermes SSD server. The PRE1 Ultimate accepts inputs from a computer via its USB HD hub, SPDIF, TOSLINK, BNC, stereo line inputs and all phono cartridges. It can be connected to any amplifier through its single-ended or differentially balanced outputs. Additionally, digital outputs are provided to connect with digital-input speakers for a lossless connection.

The proprietary Wadax musIC signal processor operates in the digital domain, without loss. Both A/D and D/A converters process under ideal conditions.

Vinyl Replay Redefined
The optional phono stage combines the warmth and delicacy of vinyl playback with perfect channel balance, spectral accuracy, and phase coherence via customized RIAA signal reconstruction ‘maps’ specific to your cartridge.
• Reducing the signal losses inherent in traditional phono preamplifiers
• Avoiding RIAA process errors by applying custom mapping
• Also addresses non-linear cartridge distortions
