Woo Audio WDS-1: 24-Bit, 192K Digital-to-Analog Converter

WDS-1 24/192 Digital-to-Analog Converter

The WOO Audio WDS-1 Digital-to-Analog Converter is a superior digital audio playback component designed for serious music lovers. It is the perfect companion for any computer audio system, as well as our own state of the art WTP-1 Red Book CD Transport.

Neither up-sampling nor oversampling is used. The WDS-1 maintains pure data integrity, transmitting it via a standard high speed USB 2.0 interface operating in asynchronous mode.

High quality construction features include an all-aluminum chassis with no screws visible from any viewing angles, individual power supplies for both digital and analog circuitries, a custom built toroidal power transformer, multi-layer military grade PCBs, and an aluminum premium remote control (optional). All of the above are the result of our extensive focus on vigorous product development and improvements.

The WDS-1 incorporates a digital volume control which allows for direct connection to any power amplifier, negating the need for a preamplifier. Maximum output can be set at either two or four volts to suit different amplifier/speaker combinations.
