"The M-DAC raises the performance bar even higher, with a solid build, high-res audio support and superb sound." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

Class-leading sound

Every aspect of the M-DAC's design has been optimised for the finest sound quality. At its heart is a 32-bit DAC from ESS Technology. This extremely high resolution DAC ensures outstanding levels of detail and note definition. With extremely low loss, polypropylene film/foil capacitors, ultra stable resistors and a 4-layer PCB board there's minimal signal loss, so you hear more subtle detail. Ultra low noise and highly regulated power supplies ensure a clean and dynamic sound quality.

Asynchronous USB
In addition to coaxial and optical digital inputs, the M-DAC also has a USB interface. This asynchronous device controls your computer's audio output stage for lower levels of jitter and a purer sound. Supporting up to 24-bit/96kHz streaming, you can listen to songs in 'better than CD' quality stored on your hard drive.

Digital pre-amp and built-in headphone stage
Featuring J-FET Class A output stages, the M-DAC also makes an excellent digital pre-amp or headphone stage. If you've active speakers or a power amp and no analogue sources, such as a record deck, then simply plug the M-DAC straight in and adjust the input and volume remotely. Similarly, the headphone stage is higher quality than most built into integrated amps.

Selectable filters
As we all prefer slightly different nuances of sound quality, the M-DAC comes with Audiolab's selectable filter system. Select from seven different filters to find your ideal sound. What's more, the filters' software is fully upgradable via the USB port.

Fully featured
Unlike most other stand-alone DACs, the M-DAC boasts a high quality OLED display. Informative and clear enough to be able to read from some distance away, the high contrast display lets you keep an eye on the input source being used, volume, sampling rate, DAC mode and even displays digital level meters in dB with peak hold. A full remote control makes it simple to control from your armchair.

More than just a simple DAC, the Audiolab M-DAC can be at the heart of your entire system.
