With eight Hybrid DACs, the Select DAC produces an unmatched level of detail. It reproduces the musicality, soundstage, and texture of the original performance, bringing the artist to you. A fully balanced, ultra-high precision, discrete ladder DAC architecture ensures each note tells a story. Additionally, MSB’s robust in-house design enables the finest quality playback of PCM and native DSD, while our low-impedance circuitry drives your amplification directly without adding coloration or buffering noise. The end result is a digital experience that defies expectations.
Our clock module architecture is built with the customer in mind—we’ve made the clock module user-upgradable, ensuring future updates are simple and streamlined. Each Select DAC comes with our most advanced Femto 33 Clock featuring a custom oven-controlled dual crystal design.
Equipped with high visibility and a wide viewing angle, the display is both easy to read and stunning. This attention to detail exhibits our love for functional and intuitive features. The LED display, slaved to the audio clock, is refreshed between data processing to drastically reduce electrical interference. The in-house discrete design is then enclosed into its own shielded CNC pocket for optimal isolation. Sit back and be immersed.
Two dedicated power supplies provide increased isolation and electrical performance for both the digital and the analog power. With the increased space, each Select Powerbase has a much lower noise design.
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.
With careful consideration of the signal path, we are able to design bespoke amplifiers that leverage our DACs ultra-low-noise outputs. Built entirely in-house, our headphone amplifiers easily outperform other amps that are built for universal applications. Similarly, we have a dedicated output architecture for electrostatic and dynamic headphones to provide the best listening experience possible. An integrated bypass allows you to easily switch between your two-channel system and headphones without moving cables.
The Digital Director enhances essential DAC functions, externally manages digital audio sources, and provides unmatched noise isolation and digital filtering. Using our proprietary ProISL laser fiber optic connection, the Digital Director eliminates noise coupling into the DAC from any digital source. This advanced isolation technology elevates the performance of all digital audio sources. Additionally, increased processing power ensures our digital filtering algorithms achieve a new level of realistic and accurate analog reproduction. Born from years of research and development, along with a keen understanding of digital filter design, the Digital Director levels up the performance of all digital audio.
MSB thrives off the innovation required to meet consumer demands. We’re 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. Focusing on our network renderer and Pro USB input, your audio tech will be on the cutting edge. Put simply, your DAC is ready for the future.
