Wattson Audio presents Madison, its new DAC/Streamer
Wattson Audio is proud to announce the official launch of its second audio product, the ultra-compact Madison streaming DAC.
“For our new streamer Madison, we have put into action all our know-how to seek the intensity of analog restitution and find the emotion of the musical message beyond technical considerations.
In use, the Madison must convey listening pleasure in very high fidelity, with optimal ergonomics.”
Alexandre Lavanchy, CEO of Wattson Audio
However, this achievement and apparent simplicity requires the implementation of sophisticated concepts. Digital audio technology has many advantages, but it also has its demons and mysteries, sometimes associated with a certain harshness, coldness of reproduction or listening fatigue.
By dint of experimentation, reflection and synthesis, we have paid scrupulous attention to and optimized all the key elements of the process of reproducing and converting digital data. This perfectionist approach brings an obvious fluidity to listening to the Madison, and its “analog” character.
Minimalist design, advanced engineering, and Swiss-made quality are part of Wattson Audio’s DNA. From these values is born Madison, our new ultra-compact DAC/Streamer with superlative audio performance.
Entirely made in Switzerland, the Madison required many months of development and adjustments, compounded by the scarcity of electronic components and raw materials.
In addition to integrating our audiophile-recognized proprietary streaming interface, the Madison is a concentrate of technology incorporating a dual mono DAC, digital inputs, LEEDH processing lossless digital volume control, and a headphone output.
Its ergonomics are as simple as it is functional, allowing you to access all functions using the Wattson Music app or control it with the multifunction button on the front panel.
Easily integrated into your audiophile system with its RCA and XLR outputs, the Madison works beautifully with a pair of powered speakers.
