no longer for sale

The Mirus, created by the design team who developed the ESS chip, is a solid, compact powerhouse with many advanced features such as FPGA programming for improved sound quality and functionality that can be updated with the latest firmware.   The Mirus improves on the sound quality of its predecessor, the INVICTA, by adding a second ESS Sabre Dac ES9018 chip for a total of eight ES9018 channels for each stereo output, resulting in lower noise levels.  

 

The Mirus presents subtle nuance in recordings without sounding bright or harsh as Sabre-based dacs are sometimes known to do.   The integral SD card implementation is excellent and eliminates the need for a computer or streamer in the listening room.  The dac comes with an Apple remote to control various features, such as source selection, volume, etc.  A second remote, included, has the same functionality but is more ergonomic and feels better to the touch.  

The Resonessence Mirus has received many well deserved, glowing reviews and is widely considered to be a solid “Class A” level dac.  Check out the reviews from Audio Stream, Digital Audio Review, 6 Moons, and others.   FYI, the summer 2016 version of the Mirus, which includes the latest version of the ESS chip, is now $6,000.
