Meitner Audio MA-1
Description:

Meitner Stereo D/A Converter 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. The Meitner MA-1: • 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 • Complies with the USB Class 2 audio interface standard • Is simple to use. There's nothing to configure. Just plug and play. MFAST™ asynchronous technology Feed the MA-1 through any of its six inputs and the 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. MDAT™: 2x DSD upsampling From there, the signal goes straight into the Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT™) which upsamples digital audio to 5.6MHz, double the SACD standard sampling rate. The world's best dac/clock combination Our MA-1 features the 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 may be the first audio product that's equally appealing to those on a budget, and those with no budget limitations at all. Key Features & Specifications: • Supported 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: • 1 x USB • 1 x AES/EBU • 2 x TOSLINK S/PDIF • 2 x COAX S/PDIF • MFAST™ asynchronous technology for instant signal acquisition, jitter-free performance • MDAT™ signal processing technology: • Provides 2x DSD upsampling for PCM playback • Preserves phase, frequency and dynamic integrity of the waveform • MDAC™ discrete dual differential D-to-A conversion circuit • MCLK™ high-purity master clock that establishes new benchmarks in jitter performance • Sleek credit-card style remote control included for input switching • USB service port for future software upgrades • Serial port for wired remote control • Power supply: • Power factor corrected • Universal 90V-260V, 50/60Hz • Power consumption: max. 50W • CE Approved Stereo analog outputs: Balanced (XLR) and Unbalanced (RCA) Output voltage (with 0dBfs input): • XLR outputs: 4.6Vrms (+15.4dBu) • RCA outputs: 2.3Vrms (+9.4dBu) Output impedance: • 300 ohms balanced (XLR) • 150 ohms unbalanced (RCA) Dimensions W x D x H: 435 x 400 x 92mm Weight: 7.43 kg/16.39 lbs net with remote control Designed and Manufactured in Canada.
