Bricasti Design M1 USB Digital to Analog Converter

Item # BRI-M1-USB-B
test
$9,000.00
+ -

The M1 USB digital to analog converter is a dual mono design; there are two completely isolated channels, each with its own dedicated linear power supply, D/A converter, DDS clocking, and analog circuitry. This design insures that analog cross talk is virtually non existent, that the necessary power requirements for each channel are well met and isolated from each other and the digital processing is isolated, having its own power supply. With our twin DAC design, the dynamic range for each channel is optimized by using the stereo ADI 1955 D/A converter in a mono configuration. The M1 also includes Bricasti's own proprietary filter technology, further opening new territory with what is achievable in a modern D/A reference.

Product Highlights

  • DSD, DSD64 and DSD128 playback.
  • Features the latest generation asynchronous USB interface.
  • Dedicated dual mono design.
  • Highly acclaimed, proprietary filter technology.
  • Extremely low jitter @ 6 picoseconds.
  • Supports sample rates of up to 352.8kHz and 24 bits.
  • Minimum and linear phase filters.
