THE ANSWER LIES WITHIN THE QUESTION:
WHAT DO WE AIM TO ACHIEVE?
Easy – to transport the audience into the recording session, wherever it might be, while keeping the premise of a simple, user-friendly experience. Our approach required different perspectives, different stages. We began almost two decades ago with a multi-disciplinary and constantly evolving process of Fundamental Research. We worked step by step from the very beginning, starting in the recording session, to the final step, the listening stage.
“The most technically innovative new product at the show was undoubtedly the Wadax Pre1 from Spain. This multifunction device can serve as a preamplifier, phonostage, electronic crossover, analog-to-digital converter, or digital-to-analog converter. A show report can’t do justice to the Pre1’s extensive technology, so I’ll simply describe its unprecedented processing of phono signals. In a nutshell, the Pre1 uses DSP to correct errors and shortcomings in vinyl playback, including errors specific to your particular turntable/arm/cartridge combination. In a demo between the uncorrected and the corrected signal, the improvement was immediately obvious. Moreover, the fundamental sound quality gave no indication that the signal had been digitized.”–Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound, Read the complete article
