"The more you listen to it, the more you love it. This DAC seduced us with its two faces of musical reproduction: exceptional analysis capability and a warm and natural analog sense of music. The USB Power DAC knows how to make the emotion come true so very easily that we recommend it to any audiophile still reluctant with digital. "

The USB Power DAC - The Perfect Server Companion

The Power DAC has proven to be a reliable and solid product with unprecedented performance value. It is a very high performance DAC with sound quality similar to the Platinum DACs but with no user features. It runs for many hours on internal batteries with an external charger. It has no front panel controls, and no remote. A single digital input of each type is available with auto switching. The DACs are not modular so it does not accept Signature DACs. So what does it do? It gives you great sound at a great price with all the performance you expect from an MSB product. And because is runs on batteries, it is particularly well suited to working with computer servers.

It's what's Inside that Counts

The USB Power DAC is the first MSB DAC to come stock with a USB input. Computers are very electrically noisy products and extreme care must be taken to decouple the sensitive audio DAC from the USB input. MSB has done a fantastic job making this input as good as any other. Whatever your PC or music server, you should be able to attach it to this DAC with amazing results. How DACs Work! A simple but accurate explanation.

High Resolution 192 kHz USB!

The USB DAC comes with a USB 2 input cabible of playing files up to 192 kHz from your computer. This breakthrough USB technology provides bit-perfect playback from the MAC or PC platform.


And on top of all that, an optional volume control

 

The Power DAC can now be ordered with an optional internal volume control. This extremely precise and neutral volume control uses the standard MSB remote that also works with MSB CD players. Give yourself complete control. This is not a digital volume control as found on low-end products but a proprietary MSB breakthrough, with amazing clarity and resolution even at low levels.
