The MX-DAC is a DAC out audiophile performance but in easily accommodated size.
Seeking incredible value in a 2x DSD-capable DAC? Musical Fidelity answers the call with MX-DAC. Consider: Very low jitter, an extremely high S/N ratio, 104dB of stereo separation, and a distortion figure so low we ran out of zeros at the printer. Plus, optical, coax, USB up to 24-bit/192kHz, and 2x DSD conversion. A Mil-spec aluminum chassis doesn’t hurt, either.
MX-DAC’s combination of superlative specs, innovation, and build quality make for a compelling proposition to any music lover. You get ultra-low distortion, wide bandwidth, and low noise. And when it comes to technical merits, MX-DAC takes on all comers in its class. Jitter is about 12pps, S/N ratio -116dB, linearity +0.2dB at -116dB, stereo separation -104dB at 1kHz, frequency response ruler flat, and distortion just 0.00025% at 1kHz and 0.0003% at 20kHz.
These technical figures translate to neutral, hyper-accurate digital-to-analog conversion of any digital input. Speaking of inputs, MX-DAC has two optical (up to 24-bit/96kHz), two coaxial (up to 24-bit/192kHz), and asynchronous USB (up to 24-bit/192kHz). And it touts inputs for DSD64 and DSD128. Even more importantly, all inputs are processed in the DSD domain, lending a warmth and humanity to playback. Single-ended and balanced outputs and our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee round out a giant-killer DAC.
