With the introduction of Meitner Audio's very first product—the Meitner MA-1 Stereo D/A Converter—cost-no-object performance has suddenly become a whole lot less costly.

How did we do it? By utilizing the award-winning technologies Ed Meitner developed for our EMM Labs line of products. The result is a converter that turns the 'you-have-to-spend-a-lot-to-get-a-lot' paradigm on its proverbial ear?

It also happens to turn your computer or media server into a high-end, high-resolution music-making machine.

Using technology developed in their flagship DA2, EMM Labs and Meitner Audio has once again updated both their multi-award winning DACs the Meitner Audio MA-1 DAC and EMM Labs DAC2X. The updates provide a huge improvement in transparency, accuracy and overall sound quality. 

The new V2 unit updates consist of: 

  • MDAC™ in both platforms are now fully discrete DSD512/8xDSD D/A converters completely built in-house at EMM Labs' manufacturing facility in Canada
  • Their multi-award winning MDAT2™ DSP has also been refined and updated to synergistically work with the new 8xDSD MDAC™. The new MDAT2™ DSP does real-time transient detection, processing and up-conversion of all incoming audio, PCM and DSD, before sending it to the new MDAC™
  • The DSD audio signal path has been re-designed allowing for furtherenhancements in transparency during the DSD to Analog conversion process
  • Proprietary hardware galvanic isolation for the USB Audio interface
  • Supports sampling rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192kHz at word lengths up to 24 bits through all 6 digital inputs,
  • Support for DSD128/2xDSD and DXD streaming via USB Audio
  • Support for DSD (DoP) streaming via TOSLINK, SPDIF and AES 
  • No configuration necessary, just plug and play.
  • Every other digital system from its proprietary jitter removal MFAST™ to its super accurate clock, MCLK™ has also been carefully revised as well for better sound. 

    MFAST™ asynchronous technology

    Feed the MA-1 through any of its six inputs and the revised Meitner Frequency Acquisition System (MFAST™) instantly acquires the signal, buffers it, then strips jitter out completely. A high-speed asynchronous system, it decouples input from output. MFAST™ ensures that you'll enjoy pristine sonic clarity whether the incoming data stream is pure or anything but.

    MDAT2™: 8x DSD (DSD512) upsampling

    From there, the signal goes straight into a new Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT2™) which upsamples digital audio to DSD512, 8x the SACD standard sampling rate.

    The world's best DAC/clock combination

    The MA-1 features an improved, standard-setting MDAC™ dual differential discrete D-to-A and MCLK™ high-purity master clock modules. Together, they're music to our ears. Yours too, as an audition will quickly prove.

    The Meitner MA-1 Stereo D/A Converter. It continues to truly offer a level of performance that's equally appealing to those on a budget, and those with no budget limitations at all.
