WVDAC MK2 Western Electric Tube-based Digital to Analogue Converter utilizes 4x WE408A tubes and 6x4 rectifier tube.
V DAC is a cutting-edge next-generation DAC completed with the concept and the best technology that cannot be found in any high-end DAC in the world. Although there are DACs close to analog, no digital source device surpasses analog. Waver Corporation V DACs are the turning point for digital devices that surpass analog in the history of DACs.
Waver had planned to develop a Piano DAC, a reference-level DAC, three years ago. However, considering the current market situation at the development stage, the V DAC was released in place of the Piano DAC. Quality and performance that aims at the piano DAC are retained yet priced competitively. Waversa's Paino DAC never went into production but due to rapid advancement of digital innovation, Waversa Flagship DAC finally is in production and is estimated to retail for $35,000 USD. V DAC is the world's leading waivers use digital technology and the tube analog stage succeeded in V Pre, the sound quality beyond conventional wisdom DAC Is born.
Piano DAC planned to incorporate technology that no manufacturer has ever tried by replicating the second harmonics produced by vacuum tubes in the digital signal processing. In other words, it is a technique of producing the harmonic of a vacuum tube with TR. However, V DAC uses a vacuum tube analog amplifier, so the natural secondary overtones (harmonics) will come out so that there is no need to deliberately create secondary overtones (harmonics) in the digital part. By using the vacuum tube as an amplifying element, all the advantages of the vacuum tube are saved and the shortcomings are overcome with excellent circuit technology, resulting in the highest level of high-end DAC.
Digital input unit (USB, Network) developed by our own technology, digital signal processing (WAP) by our own algorithm, multilayer energy transfer technology applied to four D / A converter chips, transformer I / V conversion, CPU controlled bias The new generation of DACs , which combines digital and analog perfectly, combines unrivaled digital technologies, such as OPAMP and transformer analog stages without resistors and capacitors, with the highest-end tube amplifier technology .
Quad SABRE based design is a unique implementation whereby each chip handles one channel with a limited frequency spectrum. Two chips per channel.
The sound signature is very close to the TotalDac 12. Very neutral and organic sound.
