The Premier DAC - Exceptional sound. Unparalleled performance.

The Prime DAC
With four prime DACs, we 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 our 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 our 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 our network renderer and USB input, your audio tech will be on the cutting edge. Put simply, your DAC is ready for the future.

Discrete Clock
Our clock module architecture is built with the customer in mind—we’ve made the discrete clock user-upgradable, ensuring future updates are simple and streamlined. For optimised performance, upgrade to the Femto 93 Clock with thermally-stabilised custom crystals.

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 buffer-less 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.

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, our 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, our 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.
