DV2

DV2 Front

The DV2 builds on EMM Labs’ ground breaking technology used in their flagship, multi-award winning DA2 converter by integrating EMM’s high resolution volume control system (VControl™) into their discrete, single bit converter.

VControl™ maintains the input signal without re-quantisation allowing for complete transparency at any volume setting, wide attenuation range, and no loss of audio resolution.

16xDSD MDAC2™ and MDAT2™ DSP

EMMLabs DV2

MDAC2™ is the worlds first fully discrete single-bit D-to-A converter with an internal conversion rate of 1024fs (16xDSD) and is completely free of inherent non-linearity that plagues every mass market chip created to date.

Their MDAT2™ DSP has been refined and updated to synergistically work with the MDAC2™.

The MDAT2™ DSP performs real-time transient detection in addition to processing and up-conversion of all incoming audio before being sent to the MDAC2™ for conversion.

USB Isolation, MFAST™ and MCLK2™

The USB interface includes EMM’s proprietary hardware galvanic isolation.

In combination with MFAST™, their high-speed asynchronous jitter removal technology and and MCLK2™ their custom built clock, jitter is completely removed from the conversion process.

The DV2 features a multitude of inputs and support for PCM up to 24bit/192kHz, DSD, 2xDSD, DXD, and for the first time in any EMM Labs product, MQA® via USB.

With its redesigned analogue and digital systems, integrated high resolution volume control, discrete componentry, and user-friendly operation, the DV2 can be connected directly to the amplification stage in any high fidelity system with ease.

Designed and manufactured in Canada.
