Overview

Details

A great little digital audio solution. Packages includes the award winning M-DAC and M-PWR stereo power amplifier.

M-DAC

The M-DAC, an eagerly awaited, new standalone D/A converter finally makes its debut as a replacement for the award-winning 8000DAC introduced in 1992.

The M-DAC is housed in a smart styling aluminium case with solid build and ample connectivity. Alongside the USB input with Asynchronous data processing, there are two each of coaxial and optical digital inputs, and one each of coaxial and optical digital outputs. Audio signal is provided via RCA single-ended and XLR balanced audio outputs.

A wand like remote control handset allows you to switch inputs, select from preset digital filters and alter the display. The large clear screen allows you to see what input is being used and the sample rate being received. High-res 24-bit/192kHz music files can be played on the M-DAC via the coaxial input, while optical and USB inputs support 24-bit/96kHz data.

M-PWR

A 40W per channel stereo power amplifier with excellent sound quality in a compact chasis, designed to match the Q-DAC and M-DAC. With both balanced and unbalanced analogue inputs, the MPWR is a cost effective amplifier with a high performance electronic design capable of driving all loudspeakers with impedance of 4 to 8 ohms. An IEC mains power inlet is positioned on the rear panel along with twin four way binding posts for loudspeaker connections.

Product Faqs

  • What can I plug into my DAC?

    DAC's will usually have a number of inputs. Coaxial and Toslink Optical are the most common, while USB is still also very common.

    The Optical and Coaxial connections can have a CD player, network streamer, television, dvd/blu-ray disc player, game console, and some computers.

    The USB input can handle pretty much any kind of computer, or a phone with the appropriate adapter (OTG for android, Camera Connect Kit for iOS devices).
