After years of patient research and development, Musical Fidelity are proud to launch the MX-DAC with DSD. With its technical innovation, superb technical performance and excellent build quality, the MX-DAC offers truly outstanding value for money.

MX-DAC is a tremendous performer. It has ultra low distortion, very wide bandwidth and low noise. The technical performance of the MX-DAC is on a par with any other DAC at any price, to ensure completely neutral and accurate digital-to-analogue conversion of any digital input.

The MX DAC has inputs for two coaxial (up to 24bit 192 kHz PCM), two optical (up to 24bit 192kHz PCM) and asynchronous USB up to 24bit 192 kHz PCM as well as DSD 64 and DSD 128. All inputs are processed in the DSD domain, which gives a warmth and humanity to the sound that simple digital conversion fails to achieve. MX-DAC has both single-ended and balanced outputs.

Part of the Musical Fidelity MX range, MX-DAC has beautiful aesthetics and wonderful build quality. The front panel and housing are both from exclusive custom-made extrusions using mil-spec aluminium.
