HWZ Deal Alert: 12th September 2017

Audiophiles rejoice!

An audiophile's thirst and desire to try each and every audio equipment on the face of the earth is insatiable. If this sounds like you, we got some deals for you. 


Massdrop CTH + SDAC DAC/Amp

Massdrop has been working with some of the hottest names in audio to bring attractively-priced audio gear to the masses, and one of their newest announcements is the Massdrop CTH + SDAC DAC/Amp.

We won't bore you with the details (you can click on the link below to check it out for yourself), but this amplifier and DAC combo brings together two big names in audio - Cavalli Audio and Grace Design - together in a nifty little package. And more importantly, support for 24 bit/96kHz sampling rates and 1W of power at 50 ohms means that it will support most high-resolution audio files and drive most headphones. 

A Cavalli Audio amplifier and Grace Design DAC will typically set you close to a grand each, but the Massdrop CTH + SDAC DAC/Amp is going for just US$319.99 (~S$430), which makes it an absolute steal. For those starting out in the world of personal audio, this is definitely worth checking out.

Massdrop x Grace Design Standard DAC

You can also purchase the DAC section of the Massdrop CTH + SDAC DAC/Amp separately as the Massdrop x Grace Design Standard DAC. This DAC has a small footprint and was designed such that it could be stacked with the highly popular O2 headphone amplifier (which can also be purchased from Massdrop). The Massdrop x Grace Design Standard DAC uses an AKM AK4452 DAC chip and supports 24 bit/96 kHz sampling rates. The best bit is that it is just US$79.99 (~S$108).

Sony WH-1000X Bluetooth Noise Canceling Headphones

Sony's new WH-1000X Bluetooth noise canceling headphones can now be controlled using an app on your favorite iOS or Android device and features new Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing technology, which compensates for changes in cabin pressure, ensuring optimum sound quality regardless of your altitude. It is available for pre-order on Lazada through Sony Singapore and will be delivered to you by 22nd September. Unfortunately, since the WH-1000X headphones are so new, there isn't a price discount. But, every order does come with a free Porter International coin case. The Sony WH-1000X is priced at S$549.
