Finely tuned DA conversion
WANDLA is the embodiment of Ferrum’s digital know-how and their in house developed analogue audio and electrical technology. The ESS Sabre ES9038PRO current to voltage (I/V) converter is fine-tuned to perform to its maximum.
Optimized ARM chip offers shortest signal path possible making 5 chips redundant. Includes MQA® decoder and renderer.
Dynamic Digital Filtering
WANDLA has seven ESS digital filters to choose from as standard and, as a world first, lets its audience vote the best from a total of eight WANDLA filters, created for Ferrum by renowned filter-maker HQ Player
Optimized Digital inputs
Specially programmed USB, and tuned coaxial and optical S/PDIF, ARC (TV) and I2S ports, optimized for audio
The signal path stays truly balanced using the XLR inputs and becomes truly balanced using the RCA inputs.
The whole design is focussed on a balanced and very transparent sound signature, making listening fatigue something of the past.
Made for HYPSOS
While WANDLA performs very good right out of the box it is made to excel above and beyond when used together with HYPSOS. Using the proprietary Ferrum Power Link (FPL) connection both components will perform to their maximum, unleashing unheard of musicality
Unique output cable design: two wires delivering the power and two wires providing the feedback to ensure flat voltage at every moment. We named this technique Ferrum Power Link (FPL) and it eliminates the harmful effects of the cable's resistance effectively improving transient response. The current delivery speed at the powered device's input is significantly improved.
WANDLA comes with a carefully selected DC power adapter. To get the most out of WANDLA you can connect it with HYPSOS using our proprietary Ferrum Power Link DC power cable. This FPL cable can be ordered separately.
