The Rockna Audio Wavelight audiophile music Server – or WLS – is the perfect source for Wavelight/ Wavedream DAC. The WLS has many output options available, but if your DAC is equipped with an I2S input, this server should definitely be considered. Next to the I2S output also USB, AES/EBU, SPDIF, and optical output (Toslink) are available.

Furthermore WLS has 3 USB ports, where you can connect external storage and expand your storage capability.  Still need more storage? A NAS (Network Attached Storage) can be defined as music source for WLS.
