Waversa Systems Incorporated WSlim LITE - Streamer and digital amplifier

For Sale is a new and updated Waversa SlimLITE Digital Amplifier and DAC/Streamer.  Waversa is known for over engineering their equipment that allows at home over the internet updates of both the firmware and the FPGA, future proofing their units as digital technology evolves.  Their Waversa Audio Processor is an inhouse design and processes the digital signal unique to the industry.  


The unit weighs under 10 lbs and is only 8"x12"x3/4" and encompasses almost all of Waversa's current innovative technology. Please see the link to What's Best Forum regarding details about the unique innovations Waversa offers. Supports: DLNA, ROON, WNDR, AirPlay, USB, Coaxial, Optical, FM, and Bluetooth Apt-X Lossless support. Full digital construction. Price to performance, I would rate this unit best value along with the Waversa Mini Headphone Amplifier, both with streaming endpoint capability.    


I set this unit up with a WiFi to Ethernet RJ45 converter, Allnic ZL5000 power, speaker cables, and LSA-1 Statement monitors. The sound stage was large and deep with impressive imagery. Out of the box, I was floored. This unit would be an ideal gift for anyone who resides in a dorm, apartment, or tiny home.

PPBTL = Para Para Bridge Tied Load. PPBTL is eight small output amplifiers merged into one amplifier that as configured produces ultra-low impedance output to handle low-efficiency speakers with low output power. 80 WPC.

Uses Waversa in-house designed chip: Waversa Audio Processor, version WAP/X type 3, which has tube harmonic generator mirroring the 1940's Western Electric 300b.
