Playback Merlot DAC

Integrated Digital-to-Analog Converter with Headphone Amplifier :

                            Store Demo as new no low offers considered.

As new and one of the finest DAC's we have every heard and truly one of the best DAC's we have ever represented and used regardless of cost.

The Merlot is a new design from ground up and borrows elements from the existing
5- and 3-series product lines and combines them with new technologies in a novel
and cost effective package. Like all Playback Designs products, the Merlot was
designed from the inside-out to maximize sonic performance which is competitive
with many much higher priced converters and often even outperforms them.

With its many unique features it is the center piece of the entire Sonoma series.
It ties all the various products together, the Syrah Music server, the OpBox disc
player and the Pinot ADC. There is no audio format, no sample rate that cannot
be played on the Sonoma series, even analog audio can be played. And then
there is recording…a feature that is not commonly associated with playback.
This system gives the Swiss Army Knife a new meaning.

Merlot DAC Features:

  • Up to 384kHz PCM and up to 11.2MHz DSD
  • USB, AES, Coax, PLink inputs
  • Headphone output with separate volume control
  • Balanced and unbalanced line level outputs
  • Differential discrete DAC (standard “Playback Designs” architecture)
  • Upgradeable Software by user
  • Recording software for file creation on computer
