Classic DAC/renderer

Digital/analog converter with network connection

The ideal bridge between your digital sources and the amplifier

The Classic DAC/renderer is a digital/analog converter: it converts the music provided by your digital sources (CD player, streamer, smartphone) and by your computer into an analog signal, which is what, appropriately amplified by the amplifier, drives the speakers .

It is equipped with a complete range of digital input connections, including a USB 2.0 port and an I2S port in PS Audio format, through which you can connect any source to the Classic DAC/renderer.

Its outputs, single-ended and balanced, allow you to connect it to any amplifier.

It is equipped with an infrared remote control through which you can control it.

It is designed with great attention to the quality of signal transfer and with sound quality in mind first and foremost. Its USB interface is galvanically isolated from the computer’s USB bus and is powered by a local power supply internal to the DAC. This prevents possible noise from the computer from affecting the sound quality. The output stages that transfer the signal from the integrated conversion circuit to the analogue outputs are made with discrete component circuits using very high level components: film capacitors, anti-inductive resistors, low noise transistors. The section that generates the fundamental clocks for the conversion is made with very low phase noise quartz oscillators powered by a dedicated regulator, also very low noise.

The Classic DAC/renderer supports PCM format from 44.1 kHz to 768 kHz, with resolution from 16 bit to 32 bit. It also supports DSD format from 64x to 512x natively and from 64x to 256x DoP.

Recognizes and decodes MQA© encoding on all wired inputs.

M2Tech has adopted MQA to support Master quality playback and streaming. MQA is an innovative coding algorithm that captures the original quality of the Master sound; “folds” the file into a smaller size for easy streaming or downloading; and authenticates the file when played on an MQA-enabled device.
M2Tech recognizes the sonic and technical advantages of MQA, so all M2Tech DAC products will include MQA in their format decoding pool.
