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.

EMM Labs

When Sony needed to transform SACD from an intriguing concept into a sonic reality, they turned to one of the world’s leading experts in digital converter design: Ed Meitner.

In those early days, Ed’s EMM Labs worked hand-in-glove with Sony and Phillips to refine what was possible from the format and to establish the unparalleled sonic purity for which SACD is now known.

The company soon developed the first complete multichannel DSD playback system from disc to preamplifier. And quickly became one of the industry’s most respected makers of high-resolution audio recording and playback products.

These distinctions were achieved by the unique amalgam of talent here—physicists, engineers and music lovers alike—working as a team to create the most faithful music production and reproduction equipment available. And, in fact, possible.

Today, EMM Labs converter systems are the de facto DSD reference of the recording industry. Currently, almost every new SACD in production is being made with our DSD converters.

And now, EMM Labs is bringing the same peerless level of performance into audiophile homes throughout the world.

Their latest products are designed for a wide variety of applications and are, without question, the most sophisticated expression yet of EMM Labs innovation and technology
