SKU: JADE Silver


What more can you 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 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.
