The Premier DAC Exceptional Sound! Unparalleled Performance!
|Color Finish Name||Black or Silver|
Available in Store Only
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.
They’re a custom in-house design with over twenty years of discrete DAC development knowledge behind them. MSB has designed and manufactured discrete ladder DACs since 1999, discovering and implementing many unique and innovative improvements over the years. It’s best to think of our DAC modules as a black box: the modules take the raw digital data in and output a continuous voltage. They’re not limited by audio formats, sample rates, or even speed. We can operate our current DAC modules at up to 6 MHz for PCM and up to 50 MHz for DSD. This gives us lots of headroom for future sample rates and audio formats. The other unique characteristic about our Hybrid and Prime DAC modules is they’re fully balanced. In today’s noisy environment, having the audio signal stay balanced to the point of conversion is key for maintaining the highest amount of noise rejection and resolution. Each one of our DAC modules processes both the positive and negative phases simultaneously in synchronicity. DAC module is individually tested and then hand-matched with our rigorous automated measurement system.
Fully Balanced design down to the conversion point. No buffers, IV converter, or transistors in the signal path. No active devices after conversion at all. Dynamically configurable between a discrete native DSD, or discrete native PCM DAC. The DAC has two modes:a multibit PCM mode and a massive parallel single-bit discrete DSD mode. Based off a discrete ladder DAC design far beyond the performance of a basic R2R architecture. Each DAC module is individually shielded and thermally bonded for a stringent temperature control. Multiple DACs per channel for increased performance and lower output impedance. Each and every DAC module is individually tested and then hand-matched with our rigorous automated measurement system.
The MSB Renderer was developed using an in-house hardware design running an ultra low noise A5 processor for optimal audio playback performance. Over the air updates will ensure that your renderer always has the latest capabilities and ultimate convenience. – Up to 32 bit – 768kHz – MQA decoding – Roon Endpoint – Up to 4X DSD – UPnP Protocol – DLNA Protocol
Our clock module architecture is built with the customer in mind—we’ve made the Premier clock user-upgradable, ensuring future updates are simple and streamlined. Each Premier DAC comes with the Femto 93 Clock featuring a thermally-stabilized custom crystal design.
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.
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.
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.
When MSB set out to make the remote, the design was built from the ground up. Stainless steel buttons arrayed around an elegant volume wheel to optimize performance and response. California crafted in-house from an aluminum billet, the enclosure feels solid yet refined. Tailored for both the transport and the DAC’s daily use, our remote brings you closer to the music you love.
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.
