FOR SALE: Legacy Audio Wavelet Preamp/DAC/Crossover - 6000OBO
Less than 1 year old. Exceptional solid state preamp to start with crossover/DAC/room correction to further improve the listening experience.
The Legacy Audio Wavelet is a control preamp, a high-end DAC, a 2/3/4-way digital crossover with time alignment and a speaker correction system that will literally “learn” your room.
In an ideal world you would hear the music exactly as it was intended to be heard. But rooms are not perfect and resonances play havoc below 500Hz. The Wavelet processor will analyze your room and make the calculations to reduce resonant energy as late as 40msecs. The improvement in tonal balance and pitch defnition is not subtle.
Already have a favorite DAC with a volume control? How about a big vinyl collection? Analog lovers can take advantage of balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA inputs without concern of digital artifacts. An apodizing circuit corrects for the the pre-ringing native to CODECs. Wavelet has adequate headroom to handle these higher level signals while functioning as a crossover and compensating for room resonances. Wavelet processes at 56 bits of depth in a domain more than one trillion times finer in resolution than that of a standard CD.
The Wavelet is by design upgradable. The unit can download firmwareupdates directly when you choose.
On Dagogo, review by Ed Momkus...."I had previously spent 5 years researching and listening to assemble a combination of high end separates which, to my ears, was pretty much ideal for my room and personal tastes. However, after countless hours comparing many component combinations (the principal ones are described below), I elected to purchase the Wavelet and rebuild my main listening system around it.
This is what the Legacy replaced in my system: 1) the MBL 1611F DAC, specially modded to include MBL’s own volume control and analog inputs; 2) the Lyngdorf RP-1 room correction device, and 3) the BSG Signal Completion Stage. At retail, this totaled $32,000 of equipment. The Legacy Wavelet is under $6,0000. I was very concerned about replacing these components. I had spent years researching and listening to assemble a combination that, to my ears, was pretty much ideal for my room and personal tastes.
The DAC in the Wavelet is competitive with the best DACs available, the room correction is better (IMO) than all others I’ve heard, and the digital preamp, crossover and equalization features are of the highest order. The Legacy Wavelet led me on an entirely different path that has upped my listening enjoyment. Highly and unreservedly recommended, even for those who have extremely high-end components. The Wavelet is greater than the sum of its parts."
