You know how it is. Digital audio data isn't the sole domain of digital transports any longer. Today, digital audio streams from sources as diverse as your PC, music server, satellite receiver, mixing board and portable player. Which is why EMM Labs has created one very simple, very convenient way to get state-of-the-art sound from all of them.
Re-introducing the DAC2X – built with the award winning reference technology in the XDS1. The DAC2X features the latest generation MDAT™ up-converting DSP, MFAST™ jitter removal system, MCLK™ master clock and Ed Meitner’s hand built 5.6Mhz proprietary discrete dual differential D-to-A converters.
In addition to being the perfect companion of our TSDX CD/SACD Transport, ihe DAC2X also features a multitude of inputs allowing host of connectivity options and support for up to 24bit, 192kHz on all PCM inputs including USB.
The DAC2X also supports true DSD streaming over USB.
MFAST™ vs. conventional PLLs
Most converters utilize PLL (Phase Locked Loop) circuits. MFAST™ has two distinct advantages. It's a high-speed asynchronous system that locks almost instantaneously to any data stream. 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. The DAC2X also features:
MDAT™: 2x DSD upsampling
Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT™) upsamples to 5.6 mHz, double the SACD standard sampling rate.
