The Premier DAC
Exceptional sound. Unparalleled performance.
The Prime DAC Module
With four prime DACs, the Premier DAC produces an unmatched level of detail. It reproduces the musicality, soundstage, and texture of the original performance. This accuracy brings a maximum of the original performance to your listening room. A fully balanced, ultra-high precision, discrete ladder DAC architecture ensures that 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. This attention to detail exhibits our love for functional and 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 enclosed 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 Pro USB input, your audio tech will be on the cutting edge. Put simply, your DAC is ready for the future.
Femto 93 clock.
Our clock module architecture is built with performance in mind. Each Premier DAC comes with the Femto 93 Clock featuring a thermally-stabilized, custom, discrete crystal oscillator design.
The Premier DAC comes equipped with 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. 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.
Headphones on the highest level.
With careful consideration of the signal path, we are able to design bespoke amplifiers that leverage our DACs ultra-low-noise outputs. Built entirely in-house, our headphone amplifiers easily outperform other amps that are built for universal applications. Similarly, we have dedicated output architecture for electrostatic and dynamic headphones to provide the best listening experience possible. An integrated bypass allows you to easily switch between your two channel system and headphones without moving cables.
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.
