By special arrangement with the folks at Wyred, Canada has been allocated an additional four units. Our original Canadian shipment sold out the same week.
To celebrate their tenth anniversary, Wyred is pleased to present a very special, limited run DAC-2v2SE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition. Building on the flagship DAC-2v2SE, this commemorative piece is the finest DAC Wyred has ever produced. The 10th Anniversary DAC-2v2SE will have a very limited production run — be one of the few to own a special piece of Wyred history!
Once again,this is a pre-order sale. Anyone who jumps on this will be buying Wyred's best ever DAC!
"I would – and did – happily put this sub-$5k thoroughbred up against all manner of more expensive competition. Ultimately I can say this DAC has challenged my view of what can be accomplished for less than five grand – spending more doesn’t tend to achieve tangible benefits, and in most cases, I’d choose the Wyred option hands down. It’s that good." - John Grandberg, DAR on the DAC-2v2SE 10th Anniversary
Passion and Performance
Those ideals have been our driving force for the past ten years. Through innovation, pushing the envelope and asking “what can we improve?”, those ideals have remained at the forefront of all that we do. In celebration of this very special anniversary, we proudly present the DAC-2v2SE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition. Building on our flagship DAC-2v2SE, this exclusive 10th Anniversary DAC takes things markedly further. It is the culmination of a decade of engineering expertise, using only the highest-grade parts, updated design, and distinctive exterior features. It is the ultimate expression of those noble ideals put forth ten years ago that still continue with us today.
Limited Production Run
To add to the exclusivity of the DAC-2v2SE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition DAC, we're limiting the production run, and they will not be produced past 2017. This ensures that each owner of one of these distinguished DACs possesses an even more unique and rare piece of gear.
