The Wadia 151 PowerDAC mini is a sophisticated combination of high performance DAC, surprisingly robust amplifier, and plenty of inputs for today's digital sources. With a nod to Wadia's original Reference PowerDAC, the 151 uses a scaled-down version of proprietary Wadia DigiMaster, and DirectConnect technologies for pristine reconstruction and amplification of all your digital sources.

Convergence Wadia style means USB, Toslink, and digital coaxial inputs provide connections for a computer, set-top boxes, streaming audio sources, plus your Wadia iTransport iPod dock.

The 151 PowerDAC mini defines the modern integrated amplifier. With an appealing small footprint, it is attractive and power efficient. Housed in a black aluminum chassis, the 151 PowerDAC mini will complement any contemporary media room, office, or dedicated music room.

Performance matters.
Coaxial and Toslink inputs accept data rates up to a 24-bit/192kHz. The USB input will receive data up to 24-bit/96kHz. Digital audio is fed directly into a powerful digital signal processor (DSP) and uses Wadia data sampling algorithms to up-sample all incoming data to 24-bit/384kHz. This technology reduces interpolation error and creates highly accurate representations of the original performance. Up-sampled and filtered data is incorporated into the digital amplifier stage and managed by the DirectConnect digital volume control. The result is a smooth analog waveform that your loudspeakers convert to an incredibly natural portrayal of musical instruments and voices. A trim, aluminum IR remote provides all of your input and volume control: when used with the Wadia iTransports, this remote also provides iPod/iPhone/iPad control for complete system integration. 


Challenge your ideas about digital music. Connect the 151 to your favorite digital source or iTransport, and your favorite speakers. You will be surprised and delighted with the quality of your digital music. The 151 PowerDAC mini is an essential part of any 21st century digital music system.
