CARLSBAD, CA JANUARY 4, 2012 — WADAX of Spain, a world leader in advanced digital audio electronics and maker of the PRE 1 universal digital preamp / phono amplifier announces it reference loudspeaker’s debut during the CES. Our active system demonstration will take place in the Venetian, 30th floor, room 232.

The La Pasión is a three way $106,500, self powered digital loudspeaker.

Only a source is required to complete the system. Each driver is independently powered. DACs inside each La Pasión loudspeaker have a specifically designed current output stage to directly drive the tweeter with no degradation of the DAC performance. Individual 400-watt Wadax digital amps drive the midrange and woofer modules. Additionally, binding posts are provided to externally amplify the midrange drivers if desired.

All of the electronics including amplification and digital to analogue processing are contained in the mechanically isolated aluminum module at the bottom of the loudspeaker. The La Pasión also incorporates an analog input for use with any preamplifier.

“In my quest for uncompromised sonic purity, there are no elements between the drivers and the power amplifiers. No cables, caps, inductors or resistors. The same D/A electronics inside the PRE1 Universal preamplifier are used inside each speaker.

This allows maximum utilization of the Wadax proprietary musIC chip which manages the crossover, mechanical non-linearity corrections, amplitude and time alignment and all other signal processes”, said Guadalajara.
