So lusciously liquid and resonant I was hard-pressed to accept the total absence of glassiness.
With four prime DACs, we yield an unmatched level of detail, reproducing the musicality, soundstage, and texture of an 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 defying expectations.
Now I get why MSB's DACs appear in so many exhibitors' rooms at hi-fi shows: the blend of sonic excellence and flexibility places it in the select group that includes Esoteric, dCS, Chord and others of that calibre. Make no mistake: this is a serious investment, but the modular design is a bulwark against obsolescence. Throw in the role of preamp (if you're all-digital) and the price seems less forbidding. A triumph.
