Bricasti M1 Special Edition Dual Mono DAC. Factory set for North America (USA, Canada and Mexico): 120V.
Please note that this is not The Classic Edition but the Special Edition, that adds up to what are significant improvements over the Classic: Stillpoints feet nicely integrated into the design. The added stability improves isolation from vibration which translates to a more transparent sonic presentation. Point-to-point wiring, a labor intensive process, improves signal flow by eliminating various connectors which can degrade a signals performance. Finally, the next generation power improvements have been incorporated in this edition to further improve filtering of unwanted noise and power ripple.

The M1 Digital to Analog converter is a dual mono design; there are 2 completely isolated channels, a left and right, each with its own dedicated linear power supply, D/A converter, DDS clocking, and analog circuitry. This design insures that analog cross talk is virtually non existent, that the necessary power requirements for each channel are well met and isolated from each other and the digital processing is isolated, having its own power supply. With our twin DAC design, the dynamic range for each channel is optimized by using the stereo ADI 1955 D/A converter in a mono configuration, plus clocking is for each channel done directly at each DAC with a technique called DDS (direct digital synthesis) which takes clock induced jitter to immeasurable levels.
The M1 includes a digital level control. For many applications this feature will allow the M1 to be used directly to the power amp, eliminating the need for an analog line pre amp, providing perfect level adjustment control for the outputs of the M1. It is a digital adjustment so it will affect both the balanced and unbalanced outputs exactly the same and insures perfect channel balance at all gain settings.
Typical circuit boards in most products are made from FR4 fiber glass. But, the M1s analog boards are made from a substrate called Arlon. This material has excellent very high frequency impedance characteristics, and was chosen for use in the M1 to yield an open and clear sound and to allow its very high slew rate audio circuit design to perform at optimal levels.
