Rein Audio X-DAC Review
Rein Audio Interview

An Interview with Jason Tornald of Rein Audio:

1) Can you tell our readers about how Rein Audio got started?

REIN AUDIO was established in 2011 selling Hi-end audio cable. It has created a new page in stereo history with its high quality design and conductor.  Tomasz Wilczak was the designer of a certain brand of German stereo and has 10 years of design experience. He designed a new brand of pure audio cable rods and named it REIN AUDIO, which might bring everyone to a new understanding about cable. Three principles of design of REIN AUDIO:

1. A good design should be simple and easy to practice;
2. The products should be able to replay the music accurately;
3. The products should have outstanding performance and reasonable prices.

2) What is Rein Audio planning for future products?

We launched the X-DAC  and X-AMP (Stereo Amplifier) as well as  the Xignature Series cables. In  the future, we are planning for Headphone related products such as Pure Phone Amplifier and Integration Amplifier.

3) What are your long term plans for international distribution?

For international distribution, we are recruiting distributors from different countries, not just US, but also in Europe and Asia.
