The Premier DAC

Exceptional sound. Unparalleled performance.

The Prime DAC

With four prime DACs, we yield an unmatched level of detail, reproducing the musicality, soundstage, and texture of an original performance, bringing the artist to you. A fully balanced, ultra-high precision, discrete ladder DAC architecture ensures each note tells a story. Additionally, MSB’s robust in-house design enables the finest quality playback of PCM and native DSD, while our low impedance circuitry drives your amplification directly without adding coloration or buffering noise. The end result is a digital experience defying expectations.

A display for the listening chair

Equipped with high-visibility and a wide viewing angle, the display is both easy-to-read and stunning, exhibiting our love for intuitive features.  The LED display, slaved to the audio clock, is refreshed between data processing to drastically reduce electrical interference. The in-house discrete design is then constructed into its own shielded CNC pocket for optimal isolation. Sit back and be immersed.

Engaging with the Future

MSB thrives off the innovation required to meet consumer demands. We’re constantly improving digital input modules to stay at the forefront of the high-end audio industry, ensuring you’re always equipped with the most current digital file formats and interfaces. Focusing on our network renderer and USB input, your audio tech will be on the cutting edge. Put simply, your DAC is ready for the future.

A Better USB Solution

The Pro USB was developed to offer a multi part USB solution that features complete electrical isolation and all the performance of  MSB’s proprietary Pro ISL input. The Pro USB is offered as a stand alone module for users who already have an MSB DAC that is equipped with a Pro ISL input as well as a starter kit with a Pro ISL input and everything you need to get up and running.

– Complete electrical isolation
– Up to 32 bit – 768kHz
– MQA decoding
– Up to 8X DSD
– Up to 1km lossless transmission

Discrete Clock

Our clock module architecture is built with the customer in mind—we’ve made the discrete clock user-upgradable, ensuring future updates are simple and streamlined. For optimized performance, upgrade to the Femto 93 Clock with thermally-stabilized custom crystals.

Hybrid Volume

The Premier DAC comes equipped a high-performance XLR or optimized RCA output module that’s fully shielded. This user-replaceable module provides a bufferless 150Ω output impedance suitable for driving any amplification. Proprietary advanced hybrid analog/digital volume technology allows for a clean and immersive listening experience you have to hear to fully believe.

Discrete Power Supply

Superior conversion begins with clean and stable low-noise power. The Discrete Power Supply feeds the DAC with dual low-noise power streams that are linear and independent. That’s not all—the CNC unibody aluminum chassis provides the discrete power supply with optimal thermal performance and an elegant design aesthetic. The DAC comes equipped with a single power supply, but can be augmented with a second discrete power supply to enable optimized power isolation between all major components.

Premier Powerbase

Built to accommodate modular components, the Premier Powerbase is highly adaptive, offering two dual-link power connectors, supplying four isolated power supplies. Make it your own—with the addition of dual low-noise shielded transformers, optimized power filtering, enhanced grounding and high-performance regulators, your DAC will be unrivaled in its performance.

Completely modular

Paired with performance increases, our modular design ethos increases flexibility for future updates and product support, guaranteeing a long-term product investment. As you pursue higher levels of playback, an MSB upgrade path is always available to help drive your own desire for innovation. Whether it’s a software update or a leading-edge modular component, we’re here to help the most valued aspect of MSB—our customers.

Anodized Finishes

Elegant yet commanding, our finishes are available in a matte silver or matte black anodize. Replaceable foot guards are included to protect the chassis from damage. Any audiophile M6X1 foot can be installed to optimize your system.
