Who will be there and with which gear are you playing during the demo?

For this event we are working together with the Dutch speaker brand daudio. We will be using the Merging NADAC to convert from files to analog with Audirvana music player.

We’ll also have a stand-alone table for you to listen to the entore NativeDSD catalog using Audeze headphones and an exaSound e22 DAC. You can of course bring your own headphones if you like!

About Daudio W1 Loudspeakers

– High-end full-range 3-way dipole design speaker

– Carefully following all the principles needed to make an almost ideal dipole speaker, Daudio have managed to set a reference that is also of friendly dimensions. The speaker comes with an internal passive filter for the mid-high section. The active crossover between the bass and the mid-high section is put in an external enclosure.

– Frequency range: 20 – 22.000 Hz, Crossover frequencies: 150 Hz and 2350 Hz, Efficiency: 87 dB/2,83 V/1 m. The passively filtered mid-high combination can be driven at full power by a (tube) amplifier that can deliver 30 W to 6 ohms. The impedance curve of the mid-high combination shows a very friendly course, no impedance correction is needed. Dimensions (w x d x h): 30,6 x 30,6 x 100 cm

Andreas Günther (Audiophile) about Daudio W1 Loudspeakers:

It presented music in its most beautiful flow. This was a true great playing here. That was clear to the listening team within minutes.

Some of us had never heard better. Not even in many a concert hall. Approaching the grand finale some loudspeakers become narrow, the high dynamics seem compressed. Not so on the Daudio: vehemence and relaxed breeziness, as if it were childs play. We were astonished.

6Moons about Daudio W1 Loudspeakers:

When the complete orchestra got going and we didnt restrain our SPL, there was that sensation of very many musicians each individually contributing to the whole.


About Merging NADAC

Advanced technology developed for F1 racing has dramatically benefited every modern car. Similarly, benefits gained from years of developing cutting-edge products for the professional recording community can be made available to the discerning audiophile. The MERGING+NADAC is not unique because of the components it uses, but in the care with which it was designed and the experience behind it. By introducing RAVENNA networking to the home, we not only remove traditional limitations, we totally transform the performance we can deliver.

The 8 channels of the ESS Sabre ES9008S Reference D/A converter are merged into 2 for improved linearity, greater dynamic range and a lower noise floor.

The 8 channel version can be set at any time to operate in 8 discrete channel mode, or stereo mode to enjoy the same advantages of merging 8 into 2 channels as the stereo version .

Both versions have separate headphone outputs using the same method of combining the channels for uncompromised DSD/DXD listening on your favorite headphones.

David Robinson from Positive Feedback about the Nadac

“I’m confident that it’s really that good. It’s the best that i’ve heard in DSD and high resolution PCM/DXD DACS to date.”

Kalman Rubinson from Stereophile

“I Found the NADAC Multichannel-8 flawless. It provided some of the best sound I have ever heard in my home.”

Takahito Miura from Stereo Sound

“This immediately made me sit forward on my chair. Even taking into account the fact that we were using an excellent demonstration system, the singer’s voice was reproduced with great clarity, in an especially solid, three-dimensional form between the loudspeakers.”
