You can never underestimate the importance of a clean power supply. A re-imagined design paired with the DAC reduces the noise floor even further. MSB created an isolated power supply for the analog supply and a single supply for the digital side. The result- remarkable levels of performance.
MSB Reference DAC is enhanced by two dedicated power supplies. They created increased isolation and electrical performance for both the digital and the analog power. With the extra space, each Mono Powerbase possesses a much lower electrical noise design.
Our modular design encourages innovation. The DAC modules, input and output modules, and clock are all user-replaceable. As these technologies change, MSB updates your DAC to keep it current and operational.
MSB is constantly innovating and creating new input modules for every application and technology. With the release of MQA, MSB has prepared a new module and a streamlined software update. This augments your DAC with the most up to date technologies. Put simply, your DAC is ready for the future.
Upgrading from the Base Output Module will provide cutting-edge constant impedance passive volume control preamp. This preamp will provide improved audio quality of your entire system while reducing system complexity. It’s an incredible feat of electrical design that sets a new benchmark in the industry. Output modules are individually tuned for maximum quality balance or single-ended audio. Even without the upgraded preamp module, the DAC still has built-in volume control.
With sideways expansion, the preamp can accommodate additional analog inputs, isolated sub outputs, and extra analog outputs.
Starting with an 65lb plate of ‘Kaiser Select Precision Plate’, material is machined in our own in-house CNC shop. After more than four hours of machining, 60% of the aluminum is removed, resulting in a 18lb finished product. The integration of our CNC shop allows for design optimization to create the best possible product. We use the high quality premium ‘Select’ metal, giving us the best anodized finishes on the market.
