Wadax products have quickly established themselves at the cutting edge of digital audio performance. But what sort of company produces ground-breaking products that depend on unique, proprietary technology?
Wadax is located in a four storey, 900 m2 building in the heart of Madrid’s diplomatic zone, surrounded by embassies and luxury residences. Quiet, relaxed and secure, it is the perfect environment in which to develop and demonstrate high-end audio products.
Here you find a 180m2 showroom/listening room, as well as the company’s admin and management offices, R&D, prototyping and development facilities. While much of the development work is based on advanced CAD/CAM systems, combined with our own measurement and modelling software, we also have mechanical prototyping facilities to prove constructional details and automated parts or systems. In fact, everything is co-located for maximum efficiency – except the manufacturing and production line.
While much of the work behind our products and proprietary technology is research led and deeply theoretical in nature, it still has to be made real, actually turned into physical products. Even then, much of the work on physical design, PCB layout, power supplies and regulation is carried out in the virtual world of Co-simulation and other modelling or measurement software, often software we have had to write ourselves. But developing entirely new technologies and creating the products to fully exploit them requires production processes, machinery and know-how that are equally advanced – and totally beyond the means of all but the very largest audio companies. Accessing the cutting-edge manufacturing technologies that we need means working with the most advanced partners and suppliers. At Wadax, our production partners are certified suppliers to the most advanced and demanding, high-technology sectors, especially aerospace and military applications. These suppliers are formally certified, an exacting and regularly repeated procedure that ensures ultimate quality and consistency across both the processes and the products produced, products that meet the most demanding, safety conscious and mission critical functions.
Working closely together, we have developed dedicated production lines and teams, ensuring that our products share that consistent quality and performance, reliability in operation and security in terms of our proprietary technologies. In addition, these partners allow us unprecedented access to ultra-sophisticated production technology and equipment, as well as the most critical QA suites available. They allow us to develop our products, safe in the knowledge that we can deliver them on demand while guaranteeing the best possible performance and reliability.
Such dispersed manufacturing is essential to maintaining the creative and innovative ethos that has established Wadax products firmly at the pinnacle of audio performance. It allows us to do what we do best. It allows our partners to do what they do best. Best of all – it allows you to enjoy the products of our combined capabilities.
