With the update of Meitner Audio’s very first product, the Meitner MA1-V2 stereo D/A Converter continues to provide enthusiasts with accessible cost-no-object performance.

How did they do it? By utilising the award-winning technologies Ed. Meitner developed for their 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 V2

• Supports audio at sample rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4,
192kHz and DSD through all 6 digital inputs

  • Supports DSD128/2xDSD and DXD streaming over USB Audio
  • 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 V2 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™: 8x DSD upsampling

From there, the signal goes straight into the newly updated Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT2™) which upsamples digital audio to DSD512/8xDSD, eight times the SACD standard sampling rate.

The world’s best dac/clock combination

Our MA-1 V2 features the updated MDAC™ dual differential discrete D-to-A and MCLK™ high-purity master clock modules.

Together, they’re music to your ears.

The Meitner MA-1 V2 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.
