The Reference DAC

From £39,595

"There is something very different in the way Reference DACs four modules (eight high-powered channels) delivers both raw and feather like energy. Music's energy is distributed without the felling of parcelization, that is too often associated even with other top tier DACs. The Reference DAC intimately follows the sound consistency, closely reflecting the phenomena of the real music impact"

Let me start the 2018 awarding with something very special. The MSB Technology Reference DAC! Even before the final review, there is no doubt, that MSB Technology deserves a special highlighting. For what it represent technically and musically, I'm wholeheartedly already giving out the Mono & Stereo Upper Echelon Award!
