A new legend is born… The Musical Fidelity M6x DAC incorporates the newest Sabre ESS chips – one for each channel to compliment the dual mono design front to back. The unbelievable detailed transient response is due to the Time Domain Jitter Eliminator.

Both outputs – the RCA and balanced XLR have their own output buffers. The output stages offer superior audio quality due to ultra low noise, large output voltage and high current drive. The broad gain bandwidth and lightning fast slew rate result in exceptionally low distortion.

First step: Silence

The M6x DAC employs Super Silent Power Transformers. The industrial-grade power sockets with EMI filter and DC blocker stop interferences and eliminate transformer hum. The result is extremely low electromagnetic radiation.

Tailored to perfection

Musical Fidelity has always held circuit board design and layout up to the highest standards. Design and structure must be custom tailored to every application to measure and sound great. The listener should have a holographic musical experience in their homes.

Onboard headphone power

The built-in headphone amplifier delivers wide bandwidth and extremely low noise as well as high dynamic range.

Sensible beauty

The solid casework is uncompromisingly rigid. That not only makes the M6x DAC pretty to look at but also protects the circuitry from electromagnetic fields.

In the end: Music

The M6x DAC’s connects the listener with their favorite artists on a hypnotic level. Carefully unpack the component, hook it up and feel the immediate musical integration: Sweet and clear treble, devoid of grain, paired with bottomless, tactile, and full dynamic low end.

Those who want to delve deeper can utilize the customizable settings and make the M6x DAC a powerful tool for experts, which elevates it into a league of its own.
