The Premier DAC offers exceptional sound with unrivaled performance.
The MSB Premier DAC is fully balanced, ultra-high precision, discrete ladder DAC with architecture that ensures each note tells a story. It's in-house design allows quality playback of native DSD as well as PCM. Low impedance circuitry powers amplification without the unwanted coloration or buffering noises. All of those features come together to give you a digital experience that defies expectations.
Full display, perfect for your listening chair.
Each Premier DAC is fitted with a high-visibility, wide-view angle display. This makes it both stunning to look at as well as easy to read from almost anywhere in your listening room. To reduce electrical interference, the LED display is refreshed between data processing. The design is also constructed into its own shielded CNC pocket for optimal isolation.
Almost like being in the future.
MSB technology continuously strives to innovate to meet consumer demands. They are constantly improving digital input modules to stay at the forefront of the high-end audio industry, ensuring you’re always equipped with the most current digital file formats and interfaces. By focusing on its network renderer and USB inputs, it ensures that audio tech will always be at the forefront of hifi audio technology. To say it plainly, your DAC is ready for the future.
A Discrete Clock.
The MSB Premier DAC clock module architecture is built with the customer in mind—we’ve made the discrete clock user-upgradable, ensuring future updates are simple and streamlined. For optimized performance, upgrade to the Femto 93 Clock with thermally-stabilized custom crystals.
The Premier DAC comes equipped with a high-performance XLR or optimized RCA output module that’s fully shielded. This user-replaceable module provides a bufferless 150Ω output impedance suitable for driving any amplification. Proprietary advanced hybrid analog/digital volume technology allows for a clean and immersive listening experience you have to hear to fully believe.
Discrete Power Supply
Superior conversion begins with clean and stable low-noise power. The Discrete Power Supply feeds the DAC with dual low-noise power streams that are linear and independent. That’s not all—the CNC unibody aluminum chassis provides the discrete power supply with optimal thermal performance and an elegant design aesthetic. The MSB Premier 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.
Built to accommodate modular components, the Premier Powerbase is highly adaptive, offering two dual-link power connectors, supplying four isolated power supplies. 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.
Paired with performance increases, our modular design ethos increases flexibility for future updates and product support, guaranteeing 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.
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.
