Your gateway to perfect sound reproduction


Unveil the true sound of the audio material with the compact DAC501 digital-to-analog converter. The DAC501 goes beyond simply reproducing your sound — it also lets you correct frequency imbalances in your room and adjust the sound to better suit your preference.


High-End Hi-Fi

Main Features

Weiss DAC501


The DAC501 is not only one of the best digital-to-analog converters available on the market today, offering an accurate and soulful presentation of the audio.

It also includes user-configurable settings, from room EQ and de-essing to crosstalk cancellation, dynamics compensation, loudness control, and even vinyl emulation.


The DAC501 comes with digital inputs in numerous formats and has both balanced and unbalanced analog outputs. All standard sampling frequencies up to 384 kHz plus DSD x64 and x128 are supported. 

Furthermore, the unit functions as a preamp, headphone amp, and streamer (UPnP/ROON).

The DAC501 also seamlessly integrates with the JPLAY iOS app – you can enjoy your favorite tracks from Qobuz, Tidal, and your local collection, all in one unified library.

There is also a four-channel version available, with “MK2” added to the model name. A standard two-channel unit can be upgraded to the MK2 version. The MK2 has in its 2 channel mode a superior performance compared to the standard DAC501.
A description of the MK2 version can be downloaded from here.



The DAC501 and DAC502 are identical, apart from the latter using a larger enclosure and an additional 4-pin headphone socket at the back of the unit. Both models are offered in aluminum or black finishes.

The DAC501 includes all the audio processing features of the DSP501 — so one could view the latter unit as a DAC501 without the D/A conversion.


To achieve its exceptional performance specifications, the DAC501 uses dual 32-bit D/A converter chips, with two conversion channels per audio channel.

It also uses an internal high-precision/low jitter clock generator for ultra-stable clocking of the D/A converter section.


The built-in audio processing is based on the same trailblazing algorithms used in Weiss Engineering’s professional audio tools.

So with the DAC501, you can adjust your audio using the same professional-grade algorithms that were likely used to mix and master the original recording.


The DAC501 comes with an IR remote control which can be used to select the active input and output, the DSP audio processing presets, and switch power on and off.

Furthermore, it is possible to control and configure the DAC501 via a web browser, which adds detailed control of the DSP processing and preset management.

Digital Inputs

There are a total of five inputs:

  • AES/EBU or S/PDIF via XLR, Toslink and RCA sockets.
  • UPnP/DLNA via Ethernet.
  • USB.
  • Roon Ready.

Accepted formats: PCM 44.1kHz up to 384 kHz, DSD 64x / 128x.

Future formats can be accommodated via software updates.


Analog Outputs
  • Line out unbalanced on RCA connector.
  • Line out balanced on XLR connector.
  • Headphone out on 1/4″ jack.

Discrete output stages for both line and headphone outputs are employed.

The output levels can be set in a coarse manner with four steps to adapt for the amplifier or headphone connected. The levels can be set independently for line and headphone outputs.
No sound degrading servo mechanisms are used.
