16xDSD Proprietary Discrete DACs

DA2 V2

MDAC2™ is the world’s ‑first true fully discrete DSD1024/16xDSD D/A converter and still built in-house at their manufacturing facility in Calgary, Canada.

They are not willing to accept the inherent non-linearities of every mass-market chip created to date. Neither should you.

Newly Updated MDAT2™: 16xDSD Upsampling

Their multi-award winning MDAT2™ DSP has been refined and updated to synergistically work with the new 16xDSD MDAC2™.

The new MDAT2™ DSP does real-time transient detection, processing and up-conversion of all incoming audio, PCM and DSD, before sending it to the new 16xDSD DACs.

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 MCLK2™ their custom built clock, jitter is completely removed from the conversion process.

The new DA2 V2’s analogue and digital systems have been meticulously revised.

All culminating in that next level of immersive pristine sonic clarity that has been the definition of every new EMM product.

The DA2 V2, the new reference converter proudly designed and made in Canada.

EMM Labs

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
