What most people call a Digital to Analog Converter, we call a Decoding Computer. Why? Because we know beauty is in the details...and properly attending to the details requires a device that does more than simply converting digital information to an analog signal. At Wadia we believe there is musical magic encoded in the numbers on your discs and hard drives. We strive to unravel every bit of information, thus communicating the messages of your favorite artists more clearly and vividly. We have spent years compiling an array of ideas and techniques to make our products extract, decode, and reconstruct the subtle details of music. After all, we think a computer is the perfect machine to execute these very complex precision tasks.
