Wadax Atlantis Reference DAC
About Wadax Atlantis Reference DAC
It is not so easy to describe this DAC because it is better for anyone to experience it in a proper setup than me writing about it. The price tag precludes widespread ownership, but facts proved otherwise in the past 12 months. There were no reviews but AE sold 7 units. The biggest shock comes from Lincoln Cheng of Audiotechnique. Lincoln, who is a big fan of Audio Note UK decided to sell the ANUK flagship CD/DAC system in exchange for the Wadax Atlantis Reference DAC/Transport. He even had to modify his rack in order to house the big Wadax DAC. Why would he go through such hassles under a COVID environment? We are about to deliver it to him. Audiotechnique will do the photography for an upcoming cover page before settling permanently at Lincoln’s home. Upcoming reviews from leading critics in the US and Europe will expound the technical mastery of it to the service of music. The exceptionalism of it earns it a place in Divin Lab in Hong Kong, and the main studio of AE Singapore. Unlike conventional digital playback, where there is always a ceiling limiting dynamic headroom, the Wadax flagship seemingly takes away this invisible ceiling. This is a big deal, indeed. The playback of SACD and DSD recordings via it is tremendous in resolution, unrestricted in dynamics, organic in lyricism, palpable in silence, noble in sonority, transparent in decay, and majestic in presentation.
