Musical Fidelity M1DAC A  The Absolute Sound Product of the Year – Enjoy Upgraded and Award-Winning Sound The best sub-00 DAC Musical Fidelity has ever designed gets an upgrade and wins awards the world over. It even won The Absolute Sound magazine’s prestigious Product of the Year! The upgrade is in the USB section which now adds asynchronous 24bit/96k operaton, making this the ultimate digital workstation. The M1DAC A upsamples every input signal to 24bit/192k for the best possible sound. After 23 years of building some of the best DACs on the market, Musical Fidelity has the experience to deliver the extended response from high-resolution sources with the richest-sounding analog output stage you’ve ever heard. The M1DAC A even includes a built-in power conditioner to keep digital noise from infiltrating the delicate analog signal path. “This new [Musical Fidelity] M1DAC could be just what you need. It delivers distinguished audio, with superb detail retrieval and a broad, deep soundstage. Talk about looking through the studio’s control room window… the M1DAC sounds highly polished!” – John Bamford, HiFi News The M1DAC uses a pair of 24 bit Delta-Sigma DACs in a dual differential alignment with 8x over-sampling raising the sampling rate to 192kHz. Generally found only on very expensive DACs, this combination contributes greatly to the M1DAC’s outstanding transparency and resolution. The M1DAC is an upsampling design, converting all incoming signals to 24/192 for maximum resolution, regardless of input frequency. This allows the M1DAC to deliver the highest quality, purest digital to analog conversion regardless of source.  So, whether the input is from a pure digital source  or from a highly-compressed streaming source rest assured the M1DAC will knock your socks off. The M1DAC features a USB input, which accepts sample rates up to 96kHz. Like all other digital signals, the M1DAC upsamples all incoming USB signa
