Re-introducing the multi-award winning DAC2X V2 – updated using the technology in our reference DA2. The DAC2X V2 features the latest generation MDAT2™ up-converting DSP, MFAST™ jitter removal system, MCLK™ master clock and Ed Meitner’s revised hand built DSD512/8xDSD proprietary discrete dual differential D-to-A converters.

The DAC2X V2 also features a multitude of inputs allowing a host of connectivity options and support for up to 24bit,192kHz and DSD (via DoP) on all PCM inputs including USB.

The DAC2X V2 also supports up to DSD128/2xDSD and DXD (352 and 384kHz) streaming over USB Audio.

Proprietary hardware galvanic isolation for the USB Audio interface.

MFAST™ vs. conventional PLLs
Most converters utilize PLL (Phase Lock Loop) circuits. MFAST™ has two distinct advantages. It’s a high-speed asynchronous system that acquires any data stream almost instantaneously. Moreover, unlike PLLs which merely attenuate jitter, MFAST™ strips jitter out of the audio stream completely. Enabling you to enjoy pristine sonic clarity whether the incoming data stream is pure or anything but.

New Updated MDAT2™: DSD512/8xDSD Upsampling
The Updated Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT2™) upsamples digital audio to DSD512/8xDSD. Eight times that of standard SACD sampling rate.

Proprietary DSD512/8xDSD Discrete Dual Differential D-to-A Converters
We were not willing to accept the inherent non-linearities of every mass-market chip created to date. Neither should you.
