EMM Labs / Meitner MA-1 V2 DAC

With the update of Meitner Audio’s very first product, the Meitner MA1-V2 stereo D/A Converter continues to provide enthusiasts with accessible cost-no-object performance. How did we do it? By utilizing the award-winning technologies Ed Meitner developed for our EMM Labs line of products. The result is a converter that turns the “you-have-to-spend-a-lot-to-get-a-lot” paradigm on its proverbial ear. It also happens to turn your computer or media server into a high-end, high-resolution music-making machine.

The Meitner MA-1 V2:

 

  • Supports audio at sample rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192kHz and DSD through all 6 digital inputs
  • Supports DSD128/2xDSD and DXD streaming over USB Audio
  • Complies with the USB Class 2 audio interface standard
  • Is simple to use. There's nothing to configure. Just plug and play

 

MFAST™ asynchronous technology


Feed the MA-1 V2 through any of its six inputs and the Meitner Frequency Acquisition System (MFAST™) instantly acquires the signal, buffers it, then strips jitter out completely. A high-speed asynchronous system, it decouples input from output. MFAST™ ensures that you’ll enjoy pristine sonic clarity whether the incoming data stream is pure or anything but.

 

MDAT™: 8x DSD upsampling


From there, the signal goes straight into the newly updated Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT2™) which upsamples digital audio to DSD512/8xDSD, eight times the SACD standard sampling rate.

 

The world's best dac/clock combination


Our MA-1 V2 features the updated MDAC™ dual differential discrete D-to-A and MCLK™ high-purity master clock modules. Together, they’re music to our ears. Yours too, as an audition will quickly prove.

The Meitner MA-1 V2 Stereo D/A Converter. It may be the first audio product that’s equally appealing to those on a budget, and those with no budget limitations at all.
