Wyred 4 Sound DAC 1LE Excellent DSD DAC w/Femto Clock [Expired]

no longer for sale



We have a very clean Wyred 4 Sound DAC1LE with Femto clock upgrade. It would be a 9/10 for most but as there is a small mark on the left front we have it rated as a 7/10. It looks and sounds great. The DAC1LE is our favorite $1k DAC and plays DSD as well as high rez audio to 32.384k. It has 5 digital inputs including asynchronous USB with fully balanced and SE outs.

From the Wyred site:

Despite its remarkably economical price point, the original DAC-1 packs exceptional performance. That’s because the DAC-1 is built on the same foundation as our DAC-2 series: the industry standard ESS Reference 9018 32-bit DAC. Now with the LE version, we expand on this exceptional performance by adding the ability to play high-resolution DSD files and an improved USB input! The new DAC-1 LE USB input will process signals up to 32 bit in length, and sample rates up to 384 kHz PCM or DSD256.

Add to that our proprietary discrete output stages, a hefty, balanced power supply, automatic oversampling for precise output filtering and all the necessary inputs and outputs to accommodate any digital source and you have a phenomenal product that outperforms other DACs in its class. As our customer, Dave R, said of theDAC-1 (without DSD capability):

“The bass is tight and strong, the timbre is smooth, accurate and non fatiguing. My wife and I are truly rediscovering our music!”

Femto grade clock option is included

Accuracy and overall quality of the master clock are crucial to obtaining optimum sound quality. The standard clock is no slouch but you now have the option to upgrade to the highest grade component available in its class. Implementation of this femto grade clock optimizes audio quality by lowering phase jitter by over 80% as well as greatly reducing phase noise in the digital circuit. Clocks of this grade are typically found in DAC's retailing for $5K or more! Choose "Femto Grade Clock" in the options drop down menu below when ordering.
