To celebrate our tenth anniversary this year, we're pleased to present a very special product: the DAC-2v2SE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition. Building on our flagship DAC-2v2SE, this commemorative piece is the finest DAC we've ever produced. The 10th Anniversary DAC-2v2SE will have a very limited production run. Be one of the special few to own this distinctive piece of Wyred history!

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. This ensures that each owner of one of these distinguished DACs possesses an even more unique and rare piece of gear.

not just a latest-gen chip

With the 10th it's not just a latest-gen chip to keep up with the Joneses who relocate with alarming frequency in the DAC genre. It makes over the entire surrounding circuitry wherever an unplugged parts budget could still chisel out more by going exotic. The only non-exotic things about this deck are its packaging and model name. It's why it doesn't sell for five figures.

I’d choose the Wyred option hands down

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.
