Romanian audio company founded by Nicolae Jitariu. Unknowingly some users are already listening to his work being involved in multiple companies such as PS Audio, MSB, Goldmund. Rockna is also the parent company of AudioByte and AD Labs. AD Labs RD26 was my first dedicated dac, fitting their flagship is my last.
Rockna WaveDream comes in:
Wavedream edition SE(2x RD1 26 bit dac modules)
Wavedream edition BAL(4x RD1 26 bit dac modules)
Wavedream signature edition SE(2x RD0 27 bit dac modules)
Wavedream signature balanced(4x RD0 27 bit dac modules).
Besides the module differences they are the same including the output stage.
A bit of wavedream history:
Initially launched in 2014 I it had the same chassis but MSB modules in a similar arangement, MSB platinum and MSB signature, crucially without an output stage similar to Metrum.
After Rockna developed their own modules RD1 and RD0, the philosophy as follows:
If you are looking for high-end audio as it should be, you may be in the right place.
Let’s bring back innovation, consistency and common sense applied to design and technology.
