    Along with what the Arcadia DAC is selling for.
    Price for Arcadia about 14K Euro. But I don't sure 100%.

    Well, I have never been convinced about the Esoteric sound, so IMO I hope the Wadax is not in that camp.:roll eyes:

    Is the 2nd black plate slipped to the right? It looks like it on the photos.

    Just a comment on the marketing policy of Wadax. For me ... I do not understand it.
    They presented a prototype of the Acadia in Munich 2017. Not a single comment more in 16 months, now we find out by a forum partner that is already on sale, when the new Acadia model does not appears on the Wadax website ...
    Well, it is clear that this business model works for you in Hong Kong, where it is doing very well, but for me as a potential client, it does not seem the best.

    It is also head on with the Chord DAVE and BLue2, the Aries Cerat Kassandra, Total DAC 7 and Lampizator Golden Gate. Good luck with it then.....

    As I explained to Stereophonic in a PM, there has been a slight problem with the translation of Google Translate, due to a wording in Spanish, not explicit enough on my part.

    Where I pretended to put "Well, it is clear that this business model works for Wadax in Hong Kong"

    really translated

    "Well, it is clear that this business model works for you in Hong Kong"

    Thanks for correction Stereophonic. My info based on that review:
    http://www.theaudiobeat.com/highend2...17_wadax_2.htm
    I think Javier decide to correct price when understand real performance of Arcadia.
    Still will be very interesting to read yours review about comparation Arcadia and D-02X. Thanks in advance for reply.
    P.S. FYI I recommended you to try Stage III power cords instead Siltech. You will be pleasantly surprised by the result. Try Kraken and higher.

    Is there any information on the technical apricots? Is is FPGA or R-2R, chip used etc? Power supply and gain stage design?
