    Product Information

    The Prime DAC
    With two prime DACs, MSB yield an unprecedented 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 MSB's low impedance circuitry drives your amplification directly without adding colouration 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, exhibiting MSB's love for 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 constructed 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 MSB's network renderer and USB input, your audio tech will be on the cutting edge. Put simply, your DAC is ready for the future.

    A Better USB Solution
    The Pro USB was developed to offer a multi part USB solution that features complete electrical isolation and all the performance of MSB’s proprietary Pro ISL input. The Pro USB is offered as a stand alone module for users who already have an MSB DAC that is equipped with a Pro ISL input as well as a starter kit with a Pro ISL input and everything you need to get up and running.

    - Complete electrical isolation
    – Up to 32 bit – 768kHz
    – MQA decoding
    – Up to 8X DSD
    – Up to 1km lossless transmission

    Superior streaming
    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

    Discrete Power Supply
    Superior conversion begins with clean and stable low-noise power. The Discrete Power Supply feeds the DAC with dual low-noise power streams that are linear and independent. That’s not all—the CNC unibody aluminium chassis provides the discrete power supply with optimal thermal performance and an elegant design aesthetic. The DAC comes equipped with a single power supply, but can be augmented with a second discrete power supply to enable optimised power isolation between all major components.

    Premier Powerbase
    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, optimised power filtering, enhanced grounding and high-performance regulators, your DAC will be unrivalled in its performance.

    Completely modular
    Paired with performance increases, MSB's 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.

    Anodised Finishes
    Elegant yet commanding, MSB's finishes are available in a matte silver or matte black anodise. Replaceable foot guards are included to protect the chassis from damage. Any audiophile M6X1 foot can be installed to optimise your system.
