Home Hi-Rez Highway

New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.


The WXC-50 has a dac built-in capable of decoding dsd 2.8/5.6MHz & PCM 192kHz

It's USB input only accept storage devices, and it is not meant to accept USB data from PCs. But this thing can stream 2xdsd files from your storage devices, so it is not an issue.

It does have a switchable fan built in.
Default is ON.
Can only be switched off via MusicCast Controller App on smartphones/tablets.

Sound quality is quite good though.
Dynamic and clear. Soundstaging can be quite spacious.

Couple of Recommendations:

- Default setting is [Bookshelf Speaker] Mode.
Need to set it to [Floorstand Speaker] Mode to bypass the High-Pass Filter to sound its best.

- Make sure you check AC polarity.

All-in-all, this thing is dirt cheap. But perform very well against more expensive competitors.

Compared to the Auralic Altair (nearly 6 times the price of WXC-50), the WXC-50 sounds way way better, more dynamic and opened.
