The Legacy Audio Wavelet 2 is a control preamp, a high-end DAC, a 2/3/4-way digital crossover with time alignment and a speaker correction system that will literally “learn” your room.

In an ideal world you would hear the music exactly as it was intended to be heard. But rooms are not perfect and resonances play havoc below 500Hz. The Wavelet processor will analyze your room and make the calculations to reduce resonant energy as late as 40msecs. The improvement in tonal balance and pitch definition is not subtle.

Already have a favorite DAC with a volume control? How about a big vinyl collection? Analog lovers can take advantage of balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA inputs without concern of digital artifacts. An apodizing circuit corrects for the the pre-ringing native to CODECs. Wavelet 2 has adequate headroom to handle these higher level signals while functioning as a crossover and compensating for room resonances. Wavelet processes at 64 bits of depth in a domain more than one trillion times finer in resolution than that of a standard CD.

The Wavelet 2 is by design upgradable. The unit can download firmware updates directly when you choose.

Setup is simple, and the Wavelet 2 is easily controlled with the included App that runs in your iPad/iPhone/Android or other smart device. Wavelet comes with a precision calibrated microphone and a Wi-Fi adapter that allows you to work wirelessly with the Wavelet.

Wavelet 2 easily integrates in any system.
