most intriguing...!
What product is it?
Appears to be a single box disc player. Whether it also can serve as a DAC is to be seen.

allow me to dream a little......ideally there would be a stand alone version with a dac, maybe even with an integral server, then a transport only that would be a real world alternative to the 'Level 5' transport which would have an optimized interface for the Ref dac. all sorts of possibilities with that chassis.

and it could even be modular.

i'd think about adding a transport at a more modest price point. i still have 4000 silver discs that i don't play. and harnessing the magic of the Ref dac for discs is a real temptation.

Wadax has ultimate dac, server, interface and modular technology in their tool bag.........so.........all sorts of possibilities.
