The M21 USB Digital to Analog Converter

The M21 Platinum Series is the trifecta of digital to analog conversion. Three independent and user-selectable digital to analog signal paths are available: delta sigma and ladder dac for PCM conversion and for DSD playback, true direct DSD. All digital input types are supported, with direct output or hard-wire bypass of the analog attenuator.

The M21 Digital to analog converter is the continued evolution of both the M1 Special Edition and the M12 Dual Mono Source Controller.

 

 

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 New Bricasti Model 3 Digital to Analog Converter

The M3 offers an incredible array of performance in a more affordable price class. Highlights include two fully differential conversion channels, separate conversion for PCM and native DSD, and a balanced analog level control circuit, making the M3 suitable for all applications.

The M3 utilizes two independent linear power supplies for the analog and digital processing to ensure low noise and superior isolation. A newly designed chassis made from robust CNC milled aluminum in sections insures superior thermal characteristics, excellent vibrational damping and shielding from RF.

The M3’s digital design employs precision DDS clocking that lowers jitter to extremely low levels, insuring a pure digital signal path without the use sample of rate converters, this combined with superior digital filter design, and Native DSD conversion yields a state of the art digital audio path. The M3’s high speed low distortion analog path features a bypass-able preamp class analog level control allowing the M3 to be used to drive power amps directly, with no bit loss for optimal analog performance.
