Product Description

Audiolab M-DAC Ex Dispaly

Full 12 Month Warranty

Some sings of wear and tear but no major marks, full working order, supplied with box full instructions and remote.

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.
