TEN YEARS AGO, we would say that the Weiss DAC502 converter sounds “tube-like”. Not because it really is so, but because we would perceive its sound in this way by comparing it to "non-tube" semiconductor devices. This is interesting, because the Swiss DAC was compared to the tube output section of the Ayon Audio player. Today we are talking about this type of "natural" sound .
And this is what the Swiss DAC is like. He is precise in the drawing of instruments, differentiates them and separates them nicely. But it also has an amazing depth of sound and a wealth of harmonics in store. The timbre is very even, although it seems to sound “warm”. As it seems, the point is that the "interior" of the sound can be heard better than its bright, strong attack.
The device is also extremely functional, and the digital color correction will help many rooms where passive elements correcting acoustics cannot be used. And there is a very good headphone amplifier, which also does not need to be forgotten. Modest, simple and great. Hence our most important award, GOLD FINGERPRINT
