New Wattson Audio Madison Lounge Edition DAC Streamer

One year after the release of the Madison, Wattson Audio returns with a new, redesigned, and more advanced version of its DAC streamer. Wattson Audio, the Swiss company specialized in high-end audio products, announces the “Madison Lounge Edition”. This new DAC streamer takes up what made the Madison successful by revisiting several aspects dear to audiophiles.

For Alexandre Lavanchy, CEO of Wattson Audio: “Since its release, the Madison has received an incredible welcome from our community and the specialized press, notably because of its simplicity, but also obviously because of its musicality, which is often qualified as analog. We’re very proud of that because that’s exactly what we wanted to achieve with this product.”
He continues: “However, we realized that there was room for improvement in several areas, such as the output stages, the choice of components or the power supply.
This new version of the Madison is an evolution in the quest for perfection in audio reproduction, where we feel we can still achieve something without compromising the final result.”


The Madison “Lounge Edition” retains the three digital network, TOSLink and coaxial inputs of the “Classic” model, as well as the RCA, XLR and headphone outputs.  Thus, the main modifications in the Madison Lounge Edition are to be found inside the unit and on the external power supply module.
This 2023 version is also distinguished by notable visual changes. The case is given a silky “White Sand” color that contrasts radically with the Madison “Classic”. The LED display has been matched in an amber color. Anti-vibration feet have also been added, ensuring a more imposing presence of the device.


The Madison is the first device to be declined in the new series “Lounge Edition”. According to the Swiss manufacturer, other products could join this series in the future.
Wattson Audio will preview and demonstrate the new model at the High End Munich 2023 show from May 18 to 21.
The Madison Lounge Edition will be offered as an exclusive limited edition.
The manufacturer announces an availability of the Madison Lounge Edition for the fourth quarter of 2023 at a price of 4890 € incl. VAT.
