The idea of having similar high end sound like the ADAGIO but in an affordable version!
Introducing JADE by Metrum Acoustics, a powerful Digital Pre Amplifier which in sound comes close to our ADAGIO,
The biggest difference between the ADAGIO and JADE is the fact that the JADE uses two DAC chips per channel, whereas the ADAGIO uses 4 Chips per channel. Both ADAGIO and JADE use Forward Correction Technology and are following the working principle of being a Balanced Digital Pre Amplifier. Needless to say that we use Non Oversampling as that is our “Forte”. Our own designed and engineered DAC chips will guarantee a unique listening experience!
Like our ADAGIO, “forward correction” techniques are used to drive both mono dac boards. The result of this process is an extremely high linearity, right down to -140 dB, which gives the JADE a realistic 24 bit dynamic range. The JADE is a step forwards as it omits a pre amplifier. It is musical, honors the Non-oversampling principle and simultaneously incorporating the technological progress that has been made over the years while developing our products.
