Musical Fidelity was, pretty well, the first hi-fi company in the world to make a DAC. Since that time, they have been at the forefront of DAC performance technology. All of their DACs have offered cutting edge performance, fair pricing and outstanding build quality.
After many years of patient research and development, Musical Fidelity is now ready to launch the MX DSD DAC.
MX DAC's Technical Performance:
- The new MX DAC is a tremendous performer. It has ultra-low distortion, very wide bandwidth and low noise. Jitter is about 12pps, s/n ratio is -116dB (‘A’ weighted), linearity is +0.2dB at -116dB, stereo separation is -104dB at 1 kHz, frequency response is ruler flat and distortion is 0.00025% at 1 kHz and 0.0003% at 20 kHz. These technical figures are state-of-the-art. They demonstrate that Musical Fidelity's implementation is almost perfect. This ensures completely neutral and accurate digital-to-analog conversion of any digital input.
- The MX DAC has inputs for: 2 x optical (up to 24 bit 96 kHz), 2 x COAX (up to 24 bit 192 kHz) and USB up to 24 bit 192 kHz asynchronous. Importantly, it also has inputs for DSD 64 kHz and 128 kHz.
- All inputs whether from optical, COAX or USB are processed in the DSD domain. This desirable feature gives a warmth and humanity to the sound that simple digital conversion doesn’t achieve. The MX DAC has both single ended and balanced outputs.
MX DAC's Build Quality:
- The new MX range has beautiful aesthetics and wonderful build quality. The front panel and housing are both from exclusive custom made extrusions using Mil-spec aluminium.
