With WANDLA, we are making a statement to the current and next generation of music lovers. WANDLA represents tomorrow’s standard of high end digital-to-analog conversion. Think of WANDLA like a Formula 1 racing car. Like the F1 constructor’s team building the best racing car, Ferrum created the best engine for The Converter.

In stock

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.

Tomorrow’s High End Audio Today

As The Converter WANDLA leads the way for tomorrow’s high end offering flagship audio quality at an unprecedented price.

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.

SERCE

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.

Dynamic Digital Filtering

WANDLA has three ESS digital filters to choose as standard and, as a world first, two digital filters created for Ferrum by renowned filter-maker HQ Player. More will follow after interacting with WANDLA users.

Optimized Digital inputs

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

Truly Balanced

The signal path stays truly balanced using the XLR inputs and becomes truly balanced using the RCA inputs.

Proprietary amplification

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

Ease of use

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

Enhanced transparency

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

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 4T voltage sensing, both components will perform to their absolute maximum, unleashing unheard-of musicality.
