There are a lot of good Digital to Analogue Converters on the market, and at $2,695 the M6 DAC is one of the best value. Superbly built (as is all of the M6 series) this 32bit/768kHz (no, that is not a misprint) DSD-capable DAC features 7 inputs – 3 x Coax, 3 x Optical and 1 x USB. All inputs are upsampled to 32/768.
The technical specifications are exceptional. Distortion is 0.0004% at 20kHz, stereo separation is better than 120dB, and the noise ratio is better than 110dB down.
It features both balanced and single ended outputs, and has a very high performance headphone amplifier built in.
For those living in the purely digital world the output is selectable between fixed and variable, allowing the M6 DAC also to be used as a pre-amplifier. We understand that there is a matching M6 power amplifier due later in the year, but the M6 DAC can be paired with any power amplifier of your choice.
This is an exceptional DAC for the money, one that we predict will find many a happy home. Priced at $2,695.
