    Product Information

    The Prime DAC Module
    With four prime DACs, MSB 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 MSB's 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, 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

    Femto 93 clock.
    MSB's 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.

    Hybrid volume.
    The Premier DAC comes equipped a high-performance XLR or optimised 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.

    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, optimized power filtering, enhanced grounding and high-performance regulators, your DAC will be unrivaled 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.

    The MSB Remote
    When MSB set out to make the MSB 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, MSB's remote brings you closer to the music you love.

    People are talking.
    Since opening MSB's doors in 1986, we’ve been driven by one goal: to craft an unrivaled listening experience for music lovers across the globe. In that time, we’ve pushed the industry forward with each product we’ve built, redefining what’s possible. But don’t take MSB's word for it. See what the reviews are saying.
