SACD is pointless, no music needs more dynamic range than a CD can provide.

Sweet pics, the transport is probably going to find it's way into my bedroom setup :)

As the optical pickup block is Sony, and Sony no longer makes SACD players, it is limited to Redbook - unfortunately.

Unfortunate indeed. Might look into one once there's a drop/used down the line...Small footprint CD players are a tough find lately.

Is the DAC's USB input asynchronus?

 

When will it be available for sale?

Thread Starter 

Thank you for the feedback so far. We used the WDS-1 and WTP-1 in the recent RMAF show for all 7 amplifiers on display. They were very well received.

 

I am taking this opportunity to answer the questions above.

 

USB is asynchronous. It natively supports 24 bit and 96k sampling without use of drivers. Optical, coaxial, and AES support 24 bit and 196k.

 

It plays Redbook CD. This small footprint CD Transport is a major challenge of this product. In particular, the top-loading tray mechanism is complex. We had many trials in order to get the good traction on opening and closing the cover. In combination of Sony pickup and our unique CD tray design, the player is vibration resistant.

 

The estimated price for the CD Transport include the remote control. As for the DAC, remote control is optional.

 

We are currently fixing some glitches on the casing and on the programming. Pre-order date could be around the corner and we are aiming the shipping date in December 2011. This could make one of the happiest Christmas or New Year gift.

 

Happy Listening,

Jack

I could see these being a monster office rig.

How about some photos of their backs ?  What are their dimensions ?  Is there a review anywhere ?

Would also like to see some photos of the back.

And also if there will be a nice bundle price ;-)

When is the cd transport going to be available for pre order?

Just sold my DACMagic ready for one of these!

Will they be offered in straight black/silver to match the rest of your product line?

post #29 of 53

Any more news as to when these will become available? I'm doing research into a dedicated DAC around $1000 to complement my WA6-SE and this looks like it could be it.

Very impressive. Brilliant look to the CD cover. Don't like the busy design of the chassis corners though.
