High-quality Sound, Compatibility with High-resolution Sources
The WXAD-10 supports a wide range of high resolution formats, including WAV, FLAC and AIFF in 192 kHz / 24-bit resolution, as well as ALAC in 96 kHz / 24-bit resolution. Moreover, the unit employs a special circuitry design that minimises and optimises the signal path, and utilises high-quality parts and technologies — including the renowned Burr-Brown DAC, original PML condensers used in Yamaha’s AV receivers, and Yamaha’s own original technology which combines network modules to achieve jitter reduction. As a result, the unit thoroughly draws out all the sonic merits of high-resolution sound sources, effectively reproducing even the subtle ambience of concert halls and delicate expressive nuances in the sound.
High-quality Sound In-house-design Network Module
The key device that determines the sound quality of network audio is the Yamaha Original Network Module, which contains a high precision low-jitter clock that improves the reproduction of high resolution sound sources. Pure audio clock generation without an added jitter constituent caused by the clock generator sharply lowers the creation of jitter noise in playing network and Bluetooth® sources, and achieves further S/N improvement. It faithfully distinguishes delicate differences in the sonic characteristics of high resolution sound.
Simple and Refined Design
Featuring a matte finish, like that of fine ceramics, with gentle indentations in the top surface, the WXAD-10 was designed to match any décor and radiate a quiet presence. The simple, unassuming appearance fits nicely and naturally alongside virtually any audio component.
