What more could we do after launching one of the best DACs and Digital Pre-Amplifiers available today? We are aware that our current flagship products Pavane, Adagio and Forte are hard to beat but at least one idea was not realized yet. The idea of having similar high end sound like the ADAGIO but in a more affordable version!

The biggest difference between the ADAGIO and JADE is the fact that the JADE uses two DAC modules per channel, whereas the ADAGIO uses 4 modules per channel. Both ADAGIO and JADE use Forward Correction Technology and are following the working principle of being a Balanced Digital Pre-Amplifier. Our in-house designed and engineered forward corrected DAC chips will guarantee a unique listening experience!  The result of this process is an extremely high linearity, right down to -145 dB, which gives the JADE a realistic 24 bit dynamic range. The JADE is a step forwards as it omits an analog pre-amplifier. It is musical, honors the Non-oversampling principle and simultaneously incorporates the technological progress that has been made over the years while developing our products. A solid aluminium IR remote control with 4 buttons completes the listening experience.
