Computer Audiophile Review. Both the DA2 and PRE are now on Computer Audiophile's C.A.S.H. List! "Reproducing music with all its warts when warts are present and in all its glory for those rare recordings that really shine. The DA2 and PRE are in rarefied air no doubt at $25,000 a piece, but the best of anything is never inexpensive." Chris Connaker, Computer Audiophile June 2018 (Full Review...)
DA2 Reference Stereo DAC, SoundStage! Review, Product of the Year "EMM Labs’ DA2 Reference is exceptional: Rather than strike a balance between musicality and detail, it provides both without limitation or compromise. I don’t have a single complaint about it, and am tempted to call it the best DAC in the world." Doug Schneider, SoundStage!, July 2017 (Full Review...)

Introducing the DA2 – redesigned from the ground up, it
features the world’s first 16xDSD DACs and Ed’s latest generation analog
stages.  The combined performance of both
allowing the DA2 to achieve that whole new level of transparency and

The DA2 also features a multitude of inputs allowing a host
of connectivity options and support for DSD, 2XDSD and DXD(352 and 384kHz PCM)
via USB.


World’s First 16xDSD
Proprietary Discrete DACs

MDAC2 is now the world’s first true fully discrete DSD1024
/16XDSD D/A converter and still built in-house at our manufacturing facility in
Calgary, Canada.

We’re no willing to accept the inherent non-linearities of
ever mass-market chip created to date. 
Neither should you.

Newly Updated MDAT2 :
16xDSD Upsampling

Out multi-award winning MDAT2 DSP has been refined and
updated to synergistically work with the new 16xDSD MDAC2.  The new MDAT2 DSP does real-time transient
detection, processing and up-converting of all incoming audio, PCM and DSD,
before sending it to the new 16xDSD DACs.

New USB Isolation,

The DA2 also has Ed’s proprietary hardware galvanic
isolation for its USB interface.  The
allows the DA2 to further isolate its USB interface from noisy power systems.

Along with MDAT2, MFAST our high-speed asynchronous jitter
removal technology and MCLK2 out custom built super accurate clock, has been
carefully revised to work synergistically with the new 16xDSD DACs.  All culminating in that next level of
immersive pristine sonic clarity that has been the definition of every new EMM
