WANDLA fully balanced DAC/PREAMP.
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.
- Tomorrow’s high end audio today.
As The Converter WANDLA leads the way for tomorrow’s high end at tentative price levels. WANDLA offers flagship audio quality at an unprecedented price.
- Optimized ARM.
Optimized ARM chip offers shortest signal path possible making 5 chips redundant. Includes MQA® decoder and renderer.
- Optimized digital inputs.
Specially programmed USB, and tuned coaxial and optical S/PDIF, ARC (TV) and I2S ports, optimized for audio.
- Enhanced transparency.
The whole design is focussed on a balanced and very transparent sound signature, making listening fatigue something of the past.
“With Dynamic Digital Filtering, DDF in short, digital filter maker HQ Player created a total of eight filters exclusively for Ferrum. At the introduction WANDLA will feature three special filter options. We will engage with our community to make new filters available, one by one. Doing this we create a new community of digital filter specialists by interaction with us and their WANDLA’s, in search of the best possible, tailor-made sound. This is truly unique to Ferrum, to the category of DA converters and to the hifi community in general.”

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