Introducing the MSB Discrete DAC with precise sound and dignified design.
MSB Discrete DAC gives you two-for-one.
With not one but Two Prime DACs, the MSB Discrete DAC generates an unprecedented level of detail, reproducing the soundstage, musicality, and texture of an original performance, bringing that performance straight to you. An ultra-high precision, completely balanced, discrete (hence the name) ladder DAC architecture ensures each note is present. A robust design, created completely in-house, allows for the finest playback or PCM and native DSD. Additionally, the Discrete DAC is built with low impedance circuitry that drives amplification without the buffering noise or extra coloration. The end result is a digital experience surpassing expectations.
A display perfectly designed with the listening chair in mind.
The MSB Discrete DAC is equipped with a wide viewing angle, high-visibility display. Combined, these two features make the display both stunning and easy to read. The LED display, always bound to the audio clock, is refreshed between data processing to reduce electrical interference. As an added protection, the display is housed in it own shielded CNC pocket for maximum isolation.
Tiptoeing on the edge of the future.
MSB has always strived to innovate to meet consumer demand and the Discrete DAC is no exception. They are continuously improving digital input modules to stay at the forefront of the high-end audio industry, ensuring owners always equipped with the most current digital file formats and interfaces. MSB focuses on network renderers and USB input, to ensure audio tech will be on the cutting edge. Essentially, this means this DAC is made for the future.
Discrete power supply.
Superior conversion starts with a stable, clean and a low-noise power source. The Discrete Power Supply feeds the DAC with dual low-noise power streams that are linear and independent. But why stop there? The CNC unibody aluminum chassis offers the discrete power supply with optimal thermal performance and an elegant design aesthetic. The DAC comes equipped with a single power supply, but can be augmented with a second discrete power supply to enable optimized power isolation between all major components.
An adaptive powerbase.
The Premier Powerbase is incredibly adaptive. It is equipped with two dual-link power connectors, supplying four isolated power supplies. It was built to accommodate modular components. Make it your own—with the addition of dual low-noise shielded transformers, optimized power filtering, enhanced grounding and high-performance regulators, your DAC will be unrivaled in its performance.
Completely modular setup.
MSB Discrete DAC's modular design allows for flexibility for any future updates as well as product support. Overall, this ensures a long-term product investment. As you pursue higher levels of playback, an MSB upgrade path is always available to help drive your own desire for innovation. Whether it’s a software update or a leading-edge modular component, we’re here to help the most valued aspect of MSB—our customers.
Anodized finishes for an elegant aesthetic.
Elegant yet commanding, our finishes are available in a matte silver or matte black anodize. Replaceable foot guards are included to protect the chassis from damage. Any audiophile M6X1 foot can be installed to optimize your system.
