  • puce-carre 2V rms full scale Analog output with low impedance driver
  • puce-carre Integrated universal power supply 85-265 Vac / 50-60Hz.
  • puce-carre Unique design, extremely fast, ultra low noise audio power supply
  • puce-carre No electrolytic capacitors in the audio section, neither in the audio low noise power supply, nor in the audio path.
  • puce-carre 4 positions horizontal rotary switch with anodized aluminium wheel profile. Allows selection between STBY – USB – COAX – OPTO
  • puce-carre Elegant textured ABS housing available in 2 colors: White or Black

The reviews have been amazing:

“Every so often in high-end audio a product comes along that shatters the price-to-performance ratio we’ve come to expect in a category. Think of the NAD 3020 integrated amplifier in the 1970s, the Adcom GFA amplifier in the 1980s, the PSB Alpha speaker in the 1990s, and the Cambridge Audio 840C CD player in the 2000s. You can add another future legend to that list: the $399 Micromega MyDAC.

It’s worth an audition even if you were planning on spending quite a bit more. You might find, as I did, that this level of performance for four-hundred dollars qualifies as a miracle.” Robert Harley – Absolute Sound
