As with the DAC-2 and DAC-2 DSD, the special edition DAC-2 DSD SE boasts all the remarkable technology of its sister products including the industry-standard ESS 9018 32-DAC, DSD processing, and our proprietary discrete output stages. Enhancing the already stellar performance of our DAC-2 series, the DAC-2 DSD SE includes an array of highly upgraded components: Vishay Z-Foil resistors, ultra-low noise discrete regulators, ultra-fast recovery Scottkey diodes, premium grade inductors, green OLED display and a premium upgraded fuse. The culmination of these enhancements is refined audio performance down to the minutest nuances. Delivering the highest quality audio of our digital-to-analog convertors, the DSD SE is like the DAC-2 on steroids.
The Wyred 4 Sound DAC -2 DSD SE is an extremely musical sounding DAC that does not superimpose a digital edge or glare to the sound. The DAC-2 DSD SE does not sound thin or 2 dimensional. The Wyred 4 Sound had good body and weight that added a degree of realism to music reproduction not often found with DACs at this price. The excellent soundstaging with PCM files was a real plus; especially for those that enjoy live recordings or orchestral music. The DAC’s flawless function and performance was a joy to experience allowing me to concentrate on the music and not struggle with settings or other user rituals. In summary, I was impressed with the DAC-2 DSD SE’s overall level of performance given its reasonable price and feature rich offerings.
MSRP $2,549, I am asking $849 (the price reflects the dim display).
The new v2 version MSRP is $3,799, just as comparison.
The DAC-2 was tested and is working as it should and it sounds amazing. A portion of the display are dim, but all are visible during use.
