M6s DAC - Overview

Hires D/A converter, DSD support, integrated top-class pre-amp & headphone amp

The new M6 SDAC is a very high quality 32/768kHz upsampling/reclocking DAC. It has 7 inputs: 3 x Coax, 3 x Optical and 1 x USB. It will accept all data rates up to 32bit 768kHz and DSD 64/128. All inputs are upsampled to 32/768.
The headphone amp is ultra low distortion with very low output impedance....it will drive any headphone to its maximum potential. The single ended/balanced output stage has ultra low distortion, wide bandwidth, and VERY low effective output impedance. It can be switched between fixed or variable.
The M6SDAC has incredibly low distortion, 0.0004% at 20kHz...breathtaking. Stereo separation is better than 120dB. Noise ratio is better than 119dB down....the music is presented on a black velvet background. Linearity is better than 110dB. It excels in every technical area. The fixed/variable, single ended/balanced output stage employs state-of-the-art components and circuitry which deliver superlative technical and sonic performance and exceptional load driving characteristics, and will drive any combination of cable/length/electronics flawlessly. The headphone amp has the same design philosophy and implementation.

The Stuff that Matters: The Sound

The M6SDAC's immediate sonic impression is of effortless grace and transparency...there is a sensation of communication from the artists that is hypnotic and compelling. It is so musically integrated: the whole sound is sweet and clear; the treble is completely grain free and extended. The bottom end sounds endless with tactile bass dynamics and light speed fast attack/decay. The imaging, as you would expect from better than 120dB separation, is excellent: side to side, image placement, a palpable sense of the recording venue that places the performers in real-time holographic space.
