Musical Fidelity MX-DAC, Digital-Audio-Converter

MX-DAC – Overview

Musical Fidelity was one of the first hi-fi manufacturers in the world to produce digital-to-analog converters. Since then, we have remained pioneers in DAC technology. All of our devices delivered top performance, were produced to a high standard and were always available at a fair price. Initially we had decided not to bother with the DSD format because the market had not accepted it. But after intensive research and development, we proudly present our MX-DAC with DSD.

The MX-DAC is truly fantastic value for money. Its combination of outstanding technology and high quality will convince every real music lover.

MX-DAC – Technical background

The MX-DAC is a great sound artist. It produces minimal distortion, has a very wide bandwidth and low noise. Its technical performance is on par with any other top DAC, no matter how expensive it may be. In numbers: The jitter is 12 picoseconds, the signal-to-noise ratio is over 116 dB (A), the channel separation is 104dB at 1kHz, the frequency response is absolutely linear and the distortion is extremely low - namely 0.00025% at 1kHz and 0.0003% at 20kHz . These measured values ​​correspond to the latest state of the art. They demonstrate that our circuit is almost perfect.

To ensure completely neutral and accurate digital/analog conversion from any digital source, the MX-DAC has a whole range of inputs: 2 x optical (up to 24 bit / 96 kHz), 2 x coaxial (up to 24 Bit / 192 kHz) and 1x USB (up to 24 bit / 192 kHz asynchronous) and particularly important: The USB input also accepts the DSD signal 64 kHz and 128 kHz.
And almost more importantly: All incoming signals, whether optical, coaxial or USB, are processed at the DSD level. This highly attractive feature adds warmth and subtlety to the sound that cannot be achieved with a simple digital conversion.

The MX-DAC has both unbalanced and balanced outputs. The MUSICAL FIDELITY MX series impresses with beautiful aesthetics and outstanding workmanship. The front panel and housing are exclusive aluminum extruded profiles that are produced according to military standards.

The trade press is also enthusiastic. The digital specialist magazine Einsnull writes: “Regardless of whether you see the laptop as the king of source devices or want to easily upgrade a purely analogue system: MUSICAL FIDELITY fills the gap. The MX-DAC is an absolutely musical converter that suits all genres and gives digital music warmth and character.” And stereoplay sums up: “When a converter does everything right, you are almost at a loss for words.”
