Yes, MAN301 has 2 versions

1) Server version with digital outputs only (AES, SPDIF, FIREWIRE)
2) Full version with built in DAC**

**MAN301 - DAC section is enhanced version from DAC202 and produce slightly better quality. The DAC202 has the best measurements and lowest jitter ever in Stereophile. As on the other thread ching(s) are speaking about objective measurements of DACs.

The latest version DAC202U measurements can be found here:

Has any one bought the unit and can share the experience about the sound? the dealer claimed it is all sold out and no inventory at all...

部Weiss係唔係好正呀?係唔係all in one version?
#11 - audiophilelp :

Yes! The DAC version, nearly all in one
#12 - Enforcer :

It is a great machine.

#13 - audiophilelp :
2012-06-05 14:31:14

Enforcer: What power cord do you use to feed MAN301? Have you upgraded the firmware? What do feel about the sound?

For myself, I found the sound as aiff and as CD player are equally good, very analytical with full of details. The soundstage is excellent.
#14 - Enforcer :
2012-06-05 21:57:33

I find the sound played directly from CDs is better. Hence, I give it high score as a stand alone CD player. Of course, the music played from the NAS is above my expectation. But, still, I do give a higher grade to direct CDs so I suspect a little that the true potential/ability from the NAS is not fully explored. I am trying to buy a music grade cat6 cable to test. BTw, the power cabe is a normal one, no particular brans, can up load picture later.
#15 - Enforcer :
2012-06-05 22:05:09

Yes, soundstage, details, everything is top notch. I consider myself lucky that I bought the DAC version. Tbh, the DAC from TAD D600 is much better, but I consider the Weiss MAN301 is more than enough for me to enjoy music.

What is the price?
#22 - 唐吉訶德 :
2012-06-29 08:42:17

Around $85000
#23 - Enforcer :
2012-07-04 02:05:14

After 200 hours run-in, the dac part perform better and better, the soundstage is huge and with amazing depth.
p.s. found out the machine's wifi is not quite compatible with airport router. I changed to other brand and wifi can be configured as said now.

MAN301 - V1.0.3 update:


Weiss MAN301 V1.0.3 software update is available and highly recommended for all users. When you access software update through MAN iPad App, MAN301 connects to internet and back to Weiss Switzerland headquarter server. The server will verify the MAN301 IP address and location, if it is matched with the registered region, MAN301 will automatically submit the software update procedure.

Weiss MAN301 V1.0.3 update has few major changes:

Enhanced DHCP recovery. This version works with all routers, including Apple Time Capsule which we recommend.
Major WAV format fix.
Major storage import fix.

German “Audio” Magazine review MAN301.

The MAN301 “Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR)” reaches -127dBu and it is the best value they have measured. Distortion is very low too and Jitter performance excellent as well.

Weiss MAN301一起生活的三星期 / 評論家-山本耕司先生
現時的PC AUDIO突破,追求理想及可能性機器
一度曾經因為麻煩及種種原因放棄過PC audio的山本先生,在這個三星期與追求理想及可能性結果而出現的WEISS MAN301共同生活後,得出了新的變化。


音質絶不含糊,是清涼及率直而優美的聲音。 他日DSD音源播放功能都支援後,就是一台更強化的數碼產品,將來版本更新備有更多功能,令人充滿期待。(註: DSD升級已經支援)

從今個夏天開始,世界上極高質素的音响工程師也對其垂涎品牌,Weiss MAN301DSD配搭的NAS INTEGRITA環境下,展示給你至高DSD音效的魅力。

SACD採用的DSD格式確立之時,還存在著PCM還是DSD的混亂,而其中活躍於世界的sampling rate converter(取様率轉換器)「SARACON」便是Weiss品牌的經典之作。今夏開始,不再只是network環境下,即使是USB audio環境下也可以播放DSD了。

**世界著名studio都在用的SAmpling RAte CONverter(取様率轉換軟件)「SARACON」正是由Weiss開發。就算説聽過的SACD當中一定有使用過「SARACON」的也絶不過份。

因此,大部份音樂愛好者説來也是有間接接觸過Weiss的聲音。Weiss 創業接近30年,從2001年開始加入HiEnd民用市場,AD/DA等高精度製品也滲透著在專業領域久經磨練的氣息。

。。。接著播放DSD檔案了,聆聽著2.8MHz的樂曲,音場展開的立体感,完全感覺不到喇叭的存在。音像的真實感,音埸的空氣感亦能直接品味出來。弦樂的艷麗,人聲的分明,就如嘴角的detail也能描畫出來。究極之完成度,就如見到Net Audio的理想世界。

**現在的Weiss MAN301用戶,只需免費升級固件及iPad的MAN301apps就可以了(而Weiss DAC202的用戶要付費升級對應DSD DoP部份)。這様便能感受到Weiss栽培出DSD的魅力所在。

#48 - 唐吉訶德 :
2013-11-26 07:51:43

DWS 兄,

DSD 播放升級固件,還是買 INT204? 較合理?

#49 - DWS :
2013-11-26 11:01:23

Hello 唐吉訶德, if already using Weiss DACs, upgrading DSD module is most recommended. It is cheaper and it integrated with Weiss DAC(s) internal firewire cpu.

But a separated unit like INT204 can provide ultimate DSD/PCM CAS playback for "ALL DACs" in the market.
#51 - mc225 :

Can Weiss DAC2 be upgraded with DSD module?
#52 - DWS :
2013-11-27 00:41:34

Hello mc225,

YES. All Weiss DACs are capable to upgrade the new DoP module to support DSD playback via USB. This includes

DAC2, DAC1-MK2/MK3, Minerva, DAC202, Medea, Medea+

Internal photos of the Weiss DoP board working together with firewire chipset can be found on Taiwan My-HiEnd website:

This year is Weiss 30th Anniversary. We have a series of exciting plans. At CES 2014 we have a demo of upcoming software update on MAN301.

Don’t miss the brand new Weiss Engineering website: www.weiss.ch
It took 2 years of development for the new brand identity.

Here are a glimpse of some new features for Weiss MAN301 platform.

1) NEW Software Update: The software update now includes both MAN301 software and the digital chipset firmware update procedure. * The latest update will required to update on both software and firmware.

2) NEW Library view option: Artist tab can now be sorted by Album Artist filter. And Compilation Display within both “Compilation” and “Artist/Album” tabs.

3) NEW Customer Support: Under Server Preferences there is Customer Support tab

4) NEW Remote Login Support: This function allows Weiss Switzerland headquarter remote login access to user MAN301 for diagnostics and support.

5) NEW Tag Editor. A much more powerful Tag Editor is added. This allow user to fetch grace note database even AFTER the audio files(folders) are imported to MAN301.

6) NEW Library Import Status: A great indicator of the index procedure and total numbers of tracks (e.g. 10565 tracks imported).

7) BETA Wordclock Input: This feature will still take sometimes to be added on the software update after this one. But there are people concern on this and here it shows it is planned. Currently, you can use MAN301 as master clock and WLK out to your device.

The latest update 1.1.2 is a must. Almost everything improved a new level, like a new upgraded machine to me. Thumbs up, weiss.
#55 - DWS :
2014-02-10 13:01:45


Thanks. Let's say you have a folder called "No Artist"
Inside that folder there are 10 audio files called


It is impossible to tag these files except manually enter them one by one. MAN301 can do that automatically according to Gracenote database, and include the HD album artwork.

This one of a kind function applies to even DSD (SACD) or HiRes PCM formats.

Exactly, tagging is so powerful now. Tell you what, I have been playing with it for quite a few nights to complete and cure those corrupted tagging in my achieve. Works like magic now, no more wrong code and no more lost files, now I am finding it all back and give it proper tagging.

In the photo, there are 3pc x 20TB = 60TB Certon Integrita NAS in absolute silent working mode.

They provide total max. 36TB content by their RAID6 configurations.

There are 6pc x Weiss Golden MAN all connected together with the Integrita through an ethernet switch.

Question: What is the max. content (TB) each Golden MAN can be mounted in this setup?

unable to log in after the latest up grade. was successful last night after many attempts but not tonight, very troublesome, dunno whats wrong. Any c-hing has the same problem, or just me? What it said is "unable to resolve host" after I click the player picture once you open the app.

ok now. I got in. thanks god.
#66 - den :
2014-09-19 08:49:08

I got it updated after the firmware was released. Do you have more than one iPad to control? you need to update the apps as well. Restart everything then it should be okay, as least in my case.
#67 - Enforcer :
2014-09-20 00:08:31

everything updated, app updated, checked router, off and on. used Fing to check network and and...... (crying)..... I cannot log in tonight. What have I done. It just like logging in with luck, sometimes ok, sometimes not. I really have no idea. Last night, once I posted the message, I suddently got in. Tonight, I believe I still have some work to do before I got lucky. Any c-hing can help?
#68 - Enforcer :

Try not to use uplink, and select Man's wifi. If you can get in and see the wifi SSID as set on both Man and iPad matched.
#70 - DWS :
2014-09-20 10:06:32

Hello Enforcer c-hing,

Why don't you directly send an email to contact at asia weiss.com for support?
It will be best if you can also send the fing scan screenshot and others?

is your iPad log to internet via MAN301 wifi or your router wifi?
is your MAN301 uses uplink?
#71 - Enforcer :
2014-09-21 01:55:19

thanks DWS, I know there is no use writing an email, cause I am not trying to complain. I will imagine I need to bring the machine in for check up but I hope I can figure out what went wrong . Tonight I got lucky, I got in. I shall keep trying til I give up, then I will bring the machine in. Thanks again DWS for the reply :)
#72 - DWS :
2014-09-21 09:36:00

Hello Enforcer,

No, I am not talking about complain. I wish you can send an email with your fing screenshot so that we can check out the problematic matters on you setup.

We have more ways to help you before you brought in the unit.
And more likely, the problem does not need to repair the unit.

is your iPad log to internet via MAN301 wifi or your router wifi?
is your MAN301 uses uplink?
#73 - Enforcer :
2014-09-22 15:26:25

Awesome, and thanks DWS. I am still in office, will come back tonight :)
#74 - Enforcer :
2014-09-23 00:47:11

.... seems that I need to write.... got unlucky tonight.

my ipad log onto internet via router wifi
Man301 uses uplink
Is this wrong, are they mutually exclusive?
#75 - DWS :
2014-09-23 09:55:12

Hello Enforcer, please email to use via contact (@) asiaweiss.com

I would suggest you login MAN301WiFi - The login password is "WeissMAN301"
And Uplink, I would stay away from it. If it is not near the location of the router/switch, you may get a pair of Powered ethernet connection.

#76 - Enforcer :
2014-09-23 17:55:28

Following your instruction and I found out, the machines was unable to mount synology network drive/appeared to be off line/unable to mount. So I believe it was the network drive's problem. I looked into it and changed the ip of the network drive from a fixed one to a dynamic one. Bomb, the machine found it and I just need to manually mount it and it is done. Music filled my room again. I will keep testing a few nights before I take any further action. Don't want to be a cry baby :)
By the way, yes, the up link is slow, but still ok since the wifi router is pretty close to the man301. I think I would stay away from it, worrying it will drag the system response time.
Thanks DWS, will talk soon to see if I got it all sorted out:)
