Buy Mark’s dream



Audio legend Mark Levinson, founder of Daniel Hertz, and his team have developed disruptive audio technology that delivers a new level of natural sound and emotion in music reproduction from all formats including streaming.


With this new technology, Daniel Hertz builds Maria - a single chassis complete amplifier solution with uncompromised  performance, elegant design, build quality, compact size, light weight, low heat and fully programmable signal flow, priced within reach of more people. Daniel Hertz speakers offer a choice of sizes and price points for listeners with different needs.


C Wave patented technology


The biggest challenge in audio has been how to obtain pure analog emotion and enjoyment from digital audio. In January 2024, the Daniel Hertz C Wave patent was accepted and approved by the U.S. patent office, based on making digital audio better for human health. DH is the only company that can explain, measure and fix the digital audio problem. Read White Paper


Maria 800 amplifier

Maria 350 €13.200 (2 channel)
Maria 800 €33.000 (4 channel)

Maria 350 is an elegant single chassis C Wave enabled stereo amplifier powered by the Daniel Hertz Mighty Cat audio chip that performs the functions of a digital-to-analog converter (DAC), preamplifier, power amplifier, headphone amplifier, and active crossovers, eliminating interconnect cables.


The Maria 800 is the 4 channel version, with the same performance, for driving bi-amplified speakers with active crossovers and time alignment enabled.

“The Daniel Hertz Maria is the best amplifier I know how to build, without regard for price.”

What The World Is Saying

Your audio system has become an integral part of my sound on the album and I think we're getting my best guitar recordings yet. What I'm noticing is that it does not sound like an audio system at all. It just sounds like there is music in the air. I have no idea how you guys pulled this off, but congratulations - it really sounds amazing!

Mark’s equipment so perfectly and so honestly replicates the extraordinary depths of the sound from my double bass, I feel that I can now at long last, bring my dream of recording the Bach cello suites to fruition. What Mark offers the music world, in my opinion, is the opportu#fcf7efnity to hear for the first time in reproduced form,music and soul as it really is.

The world's leading solo bassist

I am the owner of two M1 systems – one for my living room music system, and one for my home theatre. When I visited you in Venice, I originally bought the M4 system, and although it was amazing, I had the feeling that the M1 system was what I really wanted – and I was right.

Interestingly, my wife Juliette, who was previously irritated by my audio systems, fell in love with the M1 system as well, and listens to it even more than I do. She is a student of opera and takes singing lessons, and loves the way the M1 reproduce recordings of her favorite operas. We are involved with the Bordeaux Opera and know what music is in live performance. The M1 is in a class of its own.
