Overview: The Wadia 151PowerDAC mini is an all-in-one digital
amplifier solution. The Wadia 151PowerDAC combines a high-performance DAC,
robust amplifier, and variety of digital inputs.
Aluminum Chassis: The Wadia 151PowerDAC mini features an aluminum
chassis with a small, lightweight footprint.
LED Display: The Wadia 151PowerDAC mini is equipped with a front-panel
LED blue-backlit display and discrete control buttons (input, phase, mute,
Integrated DAC: All audio signals fed into the Wadia 15PowerDAC mini
are processed exclusively in the digital domain throughout the entire signal
path from input to speaker outputs.
24-bit/384kHz Upsampling: The unit's digital inputs are directly fed
into a powerful digital signal processor (DSP). The toslink and coax digital
inputs, can accept up to a 24-bit/192kHz input data rate (USB:
24-bit/96kHz). Once the data enters the system, Wadia's data sampling technology
uses a spline interpolation algorithm to up-sample all incoming data to 24 bit/
384kHz for high performance conversion. The algorithm reduces interpolation
error and creates highly accurate representations of the original performance.
DirectConnect Digital VolumeControl: The high resolution digital audio
signal is modulated into Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) output using a proprietary
digital algorithm. Up-sampled and filtered data is sent to the digital amplifier
stage and managed by the DirectConnect digital volume control. This allows the
data to still remain in the digital domain while additional current is applied
to the signal in a manner that optimizes transient response and minimizes
50-Watt Amplifier: The high-resolution digital audio signal is
amplified and delivered to your connected loudspeakers by a conservatively rated
50-watt x 2-channel @ 4-ohm (or 25-watt x 2-channl @ 8-ohm) digital amplifier.
4 Digital Inputs: Four selectable digital inputs including USB
(type-B), Toslink, and (2) coax S/PDIF, allow you to connect your computer, game
system, iPod dock (such as the
Wadia 170iTransport), and other streaming audio sources.
5-Way Binding Posts: The Wadia 151PowerDAC mini features two pair of
5-way insulated gold-plated binding posts.
Remote Control: The Wadia 151PowerDAC mini includes an aluminum
full-function IR remote control for wireless operation of the unit. The remote
operates off of two "AAA" batteries (included).
