The DSD-MR MK2 is our top-line Digital to Analog converter, specifically made for the most enthusiastic audiophiles who prefer analogue-like sound, comparable to state-of-the-art vinyl and respectable reel-to-reel machines.
It is an all-hand-made boutique, designed and built with the best possible audio quality in mind, cost-no-object.
Inspired by pure analog sound quality, the DSD-MR MK2 pleases with a very natural sonic character that is truly unique.
From the DSD512 processing rate to the differential transformer-coupled Class-A tube output stage, the DSD-MR proves technology and refinement of the highest level.
The DSD-MR MK2 is based on a modular design, allowing a cost-effective future upgradability of any internal stage.
Proprietary asynchronous USB input module accepting PCM up to 384kHz/32 bit, up to DSD128 in DoP format and up to DSD512 in NativeDSD format.
Please note that both 44.1kHz and 48kHz based DSD data is accepted.
Proprietary PCM to DSD converter module with DSD128 and DSD256 capabilities, user selectable from the remote control.
DSD256 and DSD512 PCM to DSD conversion possible in Zero non-oversampling digital filter mode.
Proprietary Normal and Slow linear phase 64 bit user selectable digital filters for PCM processing.
Proprietary Pure DSD Digital to Analog conversion module. No off-the-shelf devices.
Ultra-low-jitter Femto Master Clocks.
Proprietary 10 pin RJ-45 input for connecting our DTR-MR digital transport or the DNP-SR network player.
