The Wattson Audio Emerson DIGITAL (CHF 1,350.00) is a real concentrate of technologies in a very compact format to give your audio installation access to dematerialized music, whether it be local file servers or online streaming services. The DIGITAL model has AES/EBU and S/PDIF outputs allowing connection to any kind of system equipped with standard digital audio inputs.

Wattson Music, the app designed and developed for all Wattson Audio models.

Connect your Emerson and select your preferred musical content, either from your local media server, or from an online streaming service.
TIDAL¹ and Qobuz² Hi-Res catalogs, as well as the vast radio choice brought to you by TuneIn, are at your fingertips.

Technology, precision and quality

The original format of the digital Hi-Res music tracks provided by streaming services must be maintained.
With this in mind, we perform no alterations or conversions in order to fully respect data integrity. The streamed music is fully "bit-perfect" all the way through.
We have added extremely precise clocks which ensure perfect timing of data flow, "jitter-free"  from the network playback through to the output signals.

An effective line

With their radical and compact design, carved from massive aluminum, protected by powder coating, both models of the Emerson range remain discreet wherever you install them.
