The M1se USB Digital to Analog Converter

The D/A converter is a very critical part of the digital audio chain, after all you have to convert it to analog to hear it, and we feel this should be a true as possible in its reconstruction of the original signal. it is a dual mono design; there are 2 completely isolated channels, a left and right, each with its own dedicated linear power supply, D/A converter, DDS clocking, and analog circuitry.

Many hours of listening were done to tune the M1 to an exacting sound, with all types of music, and with extensive testing done in the studio and in the home. The M1 intent is to provide a state of the art, Digital to Analog converter, utilizing the best designs and materials that can be found today. The sound of the M1 is intended to be transparent and revealing, and fully dynamic.

We think you will find the M1 to be pleasing and enjoyable to hear and use in the home.

The New Bricasti M12 Dual Mono Source Controller

The new M12 Dual Mono Source Controller is an elegant solution to combine a host of digital inputs types as well as balanced and unbalanced analog sources. Once connected to the M12, your system is commanded with the ease of a precise analog level control to seamlessly integrate into one product, your source controller.

The M12 builds upon the proven design of the M1 SE D/A converter so your digital sources are handled and converted in the best way. To that end Bricasti has added a pure dual mono analog signal path with high resolution analog gain and level control, controlling the output stage of the D/A converter in the analog domain with no loss of resolution and pass thru analog inputs for analog sources. Like the M1, the M12 is a dual mono design with 3 power supplies and separate left and right analog power supplies and digital and analog processing.

A stand-out feature for the M12 is a network interface. This allows the M12 to be seen as a DNLA device on an audio network and server as an audio device to play or stream to.

All analog, precise, silent control with 90db of control range in one db steps, all remote controlled and programmable. The M12’s digital controlled fully balanced dual mono resistor ladder is as good as level can be, and inserted at the source, at the output of the DAC’s I-V stage. This approach provides some of the best digital playback possible and analog control from the M12 balanced or unbalanced inputs.

Balanced and unbalanced analog inputs create line amp stage for the M12. Fully balanced and a perfect match for the M28 power amps, the M12 provides true balanced source control to drive any power amp.

The Bricasti M28 Monoblok Amplifier

The Bricasti M28 monoblock amplifier is an exceptionally pure and precisely controlled reservoir of current. The expression of craft wrought in this deep pool effortlessly provides the massive current required to grab onto and control any speaker through the most demanding of musical passages. The sought after listening experience that is so elusive is immediately evident. Ruler flat response and vanishing distortion of course. Fast, articulate, distortion free low frequency performance, even at the speakers resonant peak, perhaps unanticipated.

A balanced differential structure minimizes the stress across each of the M28 amplifier's internal elements. Pairing the M28 with the balanced structure of the Bricasti M1 digital to analog converter forms a balanced differential signal flow from source to speaker.

The New Bricasti M15 Stereo Power Amplifier

The new Bricasti M15 stereo amplifier is the beating heart of any system and in particular, a Bricasti Design system. Like its bigger mono-block brother the M28, the M15 delivers heaps of power at critical stages, forging a sonic path of least resistance all the way from source to the speaker. This can be heard and felt and is in part thanks to its fully differential / balanced architecture.

The M15 stereo power amplifier is a true reference design in analog power amplification, an uncompromising design offering extremely low distortion with moderate power and a unique truly balanced topology rarely seen in the industry. When combined with our M1 DAC or M12 Source Controller driving the M15 one can achieve a fully differential signal path, from the converter to the loudspeaker.
