Intuition 01 PowerDAC

PowerDAC integrated amp with digital and analog inputs

Wadia has advanced its tradition of progressive technology and industrial design. The Intuition is a 190 watts per channel integrated amp with integral DAC.Unlike other products that have added a DAC to an amp the Intuition DAC is the amp. Intuition focuses on the digital inputs, with 192 kHz/24 bit resolution for Coax, optical, AES and 384 kHz/32 bit via USB. There are also two analog inputs. At the heart of the digital decoding is a high resolution, 32 bit AD/DA digital preamp with a 1.5 MHz sampling frequency. The 190 watts per channel (8 ohms) 350 watt (4 ohms), high efficiency power amplifier is capable of driving any loudspeaker. Its was designed and is made in Italy.

• High power output and excellent current delivery
• High resolution USB input: 384 kHz/32 bit
• Native DSD playback via USB

The Intuition 01 utilizes an innovative implementation of Wadia's celebrated Digimaster algorithm, the Delta-SigMaster). Delta-SigMaster is a 1.536 MHz upsampling algorithm (FIR 1.200 taps) far superior to standard industry practices, as well as the previous Wadia Delta-Sigma implementation. The ESS 9018 SabreDAC provides the decoding horsepower delivering effortless musical performance. Technology, musicality and stunning design combined in a component destined to become an instant classic: Intuition by Wadia.

151 PowerDAC

The Wadia 151 PowerDAC mini is a sophisticated combination of high performance DAC, surprisingly robust amplifier, and plenty of inputs for today's digital sources. With a nod to Wadia's original Reference PowerDAC, the 151 uses a scaled-down version of proprietary Wadia DigiMaster, and DirectConnect technologies for pristine reconstruction and amplification of all your digital sources.

Convergence Wadia style means USB, Toslink, and digital coaxial inputs provide connections for a computer, set-top boxes, streaming audio sources, plus your Wadia iTransport iPod dock.

The 151 PowerDAC mini defines the modern integrated amplifier. With an appealing small footprint, it is attractive and power efficient. Housed in a black aluminum chassis, the 151 PowerDAC mini will complement any contemporary media room, office, or dedicated music room.

Performance matters.
Coaxial and Toslink inputs accept data rates up to a 24-bit/192kHz. The USB input will receive data up to 24-bit/96kHz. Digital audio is fed directly into a powerful digital signal processor (DSP) and uses Wadia data sampling algorithms to up-sample all incoming data to 24-bit/384kHz. This technology reduces interpolation error and creates highly accurate representations of the original performance. Up-sampled and filtered data is incorporated into the digital amplifier stage and managed by the DirectConnect digital volume control. The result is a smooth analog waveform that your loudspeakers convert to an incredibly natural portrayal of musical instruments and voices. A trim, aluminum IR remote provides all of your input and volume control: when used with the Wadia iTransports, this remote also provides iPod/iPhone/iPad control for complete system integration. 

Challenge your ideas about digital music. Connect the 151 to your favorite digital source or iTransport, and your favorite speakers. You will be surprised and delighted with the quality of your digital music. The 151 PowerDAC mini is an essential part of any 21st century digital music system.
