Main Features

Weiss MAN301


Large music libraries quickly get unmanageable and difficult to overview — particularly if they combine hard drive storage, internet streaming, and CD:s. The MAN301 provides a flexible and elegant solution.

Connect the MAN301 to your NAS devices, hard drives, and the internet. Then use the dedicated Weiss MAN iPad app to control and organize your entire music library. The MAN301 can play back CD:s or rip them for inclusion in your library. All common audio file formats are supported.

cover art and playlists

Easily search and find your music across all connected storage locations and playback sources. Collect cover art and metadata from Gracenote and other databases.

Your music can be displayed according to album name, artist, genre, and more. Create and edit your own playlists, even combining multiple sources. Multiple users can create their own personal profiles with playlists, searches, et cetera. Everything is managed from the Weiss MAN iPad app.

MAN301 DAC version

The MAN301 comes in a version that includes a DAC of a similar design to the renowned Weiss DAC202. The MAN301 Server version (without the DAC) can be user updated with a D/A converter module at any time.

The D/A converter module adds analog outputs on XLR and RCA connectors.

By itself the MAN301 turns out to be a true Weiss: competent, absolutely neutral and highly transparent.
