Ferrum Wandla DAC/Pre-amp - EISA Award Winner
As more and more of our music sources are digital there are more and more choices of DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) than ever before. The first popular home digital format was CD and has time has progressed there is now a host of others such as computers, Hi-Resolution music streaming services, smart Televisions and music downloads. The variety and quality of DACs in the marketplace has gained momentum since CD - yet it is really in the last 5 or 6 years that DAC technology has got to a point of sounding more and more musical and having more and more connectivity for our modern digital life.
Tomorrow’s High End Audio Today
As The Converter WANDLA leads the way for tomorrow’s high end offering flagship audio quality at an unprecedented price and with included inputs for I2S as well as ARC and CEC over HDMI
Finely tuned DA conversion
WANDLA is the latest exemplar of Ferrum’s digital know-how and our in-house-developed analogue audio and electrical technology. The ESS Sabre ES9038PRO combined with Ferrum’s advanced new current-to-voltage (I/V) converter compares to units many times its price.
Digital audio system module - the optimized ARM chip offers the shortest signal path possible, making 5 chips redundant. Includes MQA decoder/renderer and digital filter selection.
Dynamic Digital Filtering
WANDLA has three ESS digital filters to choose as standard and, as a world first, two digital filters created for Ferrum by renowned filter-maker Signalyst, know for their HQPlayer app. More filters will follow after interacting with WANDLA users.
Optimized Digital inputs
Specially programmed USB, and tuned coaxial and optical S/PDIF, HDMI ARC (TV) and I2S ports, optimized for audio.
The signal path stays truly balanced using the XLR inputs and becomes truly balanced using the RCA inputs.
Fully balanced modified IC pre-amplifier, fine tuned for WANDLA.
Ease of use
Newly developed hi-res touch screen with intuitive UX that is a dream to operate, including remote control.
The whole design is focussed on a balanced and very transparent sound signature, making listening fatigue something of the past.
Made for HYPSOS
WANDLA performs beautifully right out of the box, but you can take its performance above and beyond when pairing it with HYPSOS. Using the proprietary Ferrum Power Link (FPL) connection with 4TSD voltage sensing, both components will perform to their absolute maximum, unleashing unheard-of musicality.
