Wadia’s superior technical performance with sleek, industrial design.
The Wadia 321 has two optical, two coaxial and one high speed USB digital input, allowing music from all sources to be reproduced with the extreme precision and elegance audiophiles expect from Wadia Digital. The truly exceptional sound quality is facilitated by the variable balanced and unbalanced audio outputs, offering premium noise rejection for optimal performance. The clean glass top panel, aluminum construction and fiber optic light diffuser panel illumination of the chassis add aesthetic beauty and an extremely comprehensive user interface to the superior sound quality of the Wadia 321, resulting in a complete solution component for the most discerning customer.
• 192 kHz/24 bit sampling rate
• Five digital inputs, including USB
• Variable analog output
• Beautiful industrial design of glass and aluminum
“It has a clean, modern look that goes hand in hand with the modern technology it represents… Beyond its small footprint and winning aesthetics, the Wadia a102 produces exceptional sound for the money, characterized by low noise, high transparency, and controlled bass.” -hometheaterreview.com
The Wadia a102 digital stereo amplifier provides 50 watts per channel at 8 ohms or 80 watts per channel at 4 ohms. It shares the same Series 1 mini industrial design as the di122 digital audio decoder, making it a perfect amp to use with the di122. With their modern aesthetic, both will blend nicely with virtually any room styling to offer a complete audio system solution.
With an electronic switching design, our new generation of amplifiers are able to deliver massive amounts of power directly to your speakers with very little energy wasted in heat dissipation. They do away with the necessity for large cooling fins or noisy fans often found in other high power amplifiers. The result is a greener, compact and energy efficient amplifier.
“The a315 drove my speakers as loudly as I needed them to be driven, and exhibited a musical warmth from the midbass through the mid-treble — I can’t imagine too many speakers it won’t work well with. I found its midrange smooth and lovely overall, and its bass to have a certain plumpness and bloom.“ – SoundStageHiFi.com
The Wadia a315 digital stereo amplifier provides 150 watts per channel at 8 ohms or 250 watts per channel at 4 ohms. It shares the same sleek, modern industrial design as the 321 decoding computer, making it a perfect amp to use with the 321. Both will blend nicely with virtually any room styling.
Along with all of our new generation amplifiers, the a315 is able to deliver massive amounts of power directly to your speakers with very little energy wasted in heat dissipation thanks to its electronic switching design. Large cooling fins or noisy fans often found in other high power amplifiers are no longer needed. The result is a greener, compact and energy efficient amplifier.
The Wadia a340 digital mono amplifier provides 400 watts at 8 ohms or 500 watts at 4 ohms into a single channel. It shares the same sleek, modern industrial design as the 321 decoding computer, making a pair of a340s a perfect choice to use with the 321 to build your audio system.
Due to their electronic switching design, our new generation of amplifiers – including the a340 – are able to deliver massive amounts of power directly to your speakers with very little energy wasted in heat generation and dissipation. The large cooling fins or noisy fans often found in other high power amplifiers are no longer necessary. The result is a greener, compact and energy efficient amplifier.
The a340 includes the latest technology from Wadia. It features a comprehensive balanced signal design from input through output stage known as IO Symmetry™ that provides total system differential pairing – resulting in increased audio quality and noise reduction. Frequency Switching Transmission™ (FST) is an adaptive modulation design that reduces distortion at any power level over the entire audio spectrum. Utilizing a feedback technique, it makes real time micro-adjustments to the switching carrier frequency to improve linearity, thereby significantly reducing audio distortion. The higher the amplifier’s power output, the greater observed reduction in distortion. To protect your speakers, Signal Surveyor™ monitors the output signal and stops amplification if unsafe levels of DC voltage are detected.
“Clean, uncluttered aesthetics provide no clue to the big, spacious, and generous delivery of these power amps. Loads of muscle ensure ample authority and pace, but never to the detriment of musical empathy.” – Audio Video SA
New, sealed in-box Wadia a340 Digital Mono Amplifier Pair. Units come in sealed box, never opened. Units come with owner’s manual and power cord. Units come with full manufacturer’s warranty.
Both balanced and unbalanced inputs are available for connecting your other system components; balanced and unbalanced outputs are also included for ease of connecting bi-amp configurations. Specially designed 5-way binding posts will securely hold your speaker wire; they are designed for easy finger tightening and come with a special tool if even more snug connections are desired. A trigger input and output makes it simple to control the power state of your entire system when the a340 is turned on/off.
The di322 digital audio decoder keeps Wadia at the forefront of digital music playback by adding expanded support for high fidelity DSD files to the Wadia line. Via the USB input, the di322 supports DSD64, DSD128 and DSD256 music files. PCM files with sampling rates up to 32-bit/384kHz – including DXD 352.8kHz and DXD 384kHz formats – can also be played through the USB input. With the addition of DSD support, digital music lovers can experience and enjoy some of the latest high resolution music offerings. Its 2 optical and 2 coaxial inputs accept music with resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz, while the DIN input will allow future Wadia models to connect to the di322 at high performance levels.
“It took me all of about ten seconds to realize that the di322 sounded fuller and warmer than the DAC that had preceded it in my system… I was already enjoying [Adele’s] “Hello” when, at 1:06, the chorus began. I was shocked at the weight of the piano notes I was hearing… Seemingly because of this weight, the soundstage expanded to the point where it was bigger than the room — the piano’s lower registers created as much room lock as if I’d added a perfectly integrated subwoofer to a bass-shy speaker system… With all manner of pop or rock music, the di322 was a fun-filled ride… Its sound was full, big, and played deep — deep bass, deep soundstage, wide dynamic range… You’ll get your money’s worth here, and then some.”
Winner of a Reviewers’ Choice Award – SoundStage! Network
A pair of variable balanced and unbalanced audio outputs connects the di322 to your amplifier. A high power headphone jack enables personal listening for those times when you want a truly intimate listening experience. A modern design with a top glass panel and aluminum construction adds aesthetic beauty. Combine the di322 with the m330 media server and a315 or a340 amplifiers for a complete system solution.

Ultra RCA Interconnects transfer the richness, authority, and spaciousness of the best music sources in ways other RCA cables in the same price range can not approach. Every length of Transparent Ultra RCA Interconnect has its own network design calibrated for that specific length and type of cable so that all the Ultra cables in a system perform at the same level, regardless of their individual lengths.
Ultra networks and cable work together to reject noise for cleaner, clearer, more focused signal transmission. Ultra transfers audio signals more efficiently and over a wider range than Super, resulting in greater musical impact and realism. Ultra works exceedingly well with virtually any type of system component so they do not require factory calibration when changing system components.
