Whilst DESIGN products constitute the entry level for YBA,  they have appeal on two fronts. One is the price - the second is the aesthetics.

Do you have a large number of music files on your computer?

In order to cater for those whose home audio system is on the way to becoming an almost entirely digital proposition, the DAC is fast becoming the centrepiece of many systems. If you fall into this category, then you need to source a seriously good USB DAC to place between the computer and your hi-fi system so that you can translate these digital files to beautiful music.

Whilst there are an ever increasing number on the market these days, surely it is best to look to a reputable manufacturer with decades of experience in designing products capable of giving you the best result.

With its many features, look no further than YBA’s Design DAC WD202. It has a multitude of connection options to satisfy the most demanding users.

As with the Passion PRE550 and IA350, should you wish to use your PC as a source, a driver download is requireD  (available from us when you purchase any of these products)

Partner it with the CD Player and FM/AM Receiver and you have one of the best lower priced high quality systems available.
