WANDLA goldensound edition

Digital audio system module - Our optimized ARM chip offers the shortest signal path possible, making 5 chips redundant. Includes MQA decoder/renderer and digital filter selection.

Optimized Digital inputs

Specially programmed USB, and tuned coaxial and optical S/PDIF, AES, ARC (TV) and I2S ports, optimized for audio.

Proprietary amplification

Fully balanced modified IC pre-amplifier, fine tuned for WANDLA.

Enhanced transparency

The whole design is focused on a balanced and very transparent sound signature, making listening fatigue something of the past.

Finely tuned DA conversion

WANDLA is the latest exemplar of Ferrum’s digital know-how and our in-house-developed analogue audio and electrical technology. The ESS Sabre ES9038PRO combined with Ferrum’s advanced new current-to-voltage (I/V) converter compares to units many times its price.

Dynamic Digital Filtering

WANDLA has selected ESS digital filter, as a world first, four digital filters created for Ferrum by renowned filter-maker Signalyst, know for their HQPlayer app. More filters will follow after interacting with WANDLA users.

Truly Balanced

The analog signal path is truly balanced. RCA inputs are converted to balanced at the first stage.

Ease of use

Newly developed hi-res touch screen with intuitive UX that is a dream to operate, including remote control.

Made for HYPSOS

WANDLA performs beautifully right out of the box, but you can take its performance above and beyond when pairing it with HYPSOS. Using the proprietary Ferrum Power Link (FPL) connection with 4TSD voltage sensing, both components will perform to their absolute 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.
