Dream Series – MPD-8 – Dream DAC with Volume Control


Description ▴

This product has been designed for ultra high-end performance. Its architecture is specifically designed to eliminate and isolate anything that might hurt its analog performance. For instance, left and right output channels are built on separate circuit boards with completely separated power supplies. All digital input signals are filtered, cleaned and processed with Playback Designs’ proprietary algorithms to keep any negative influences away from the hyper-sensitive DAC. Special care has been given to the design of the clock generator to make sure it is not exposed to any potentially harmful influences from external sources. MPD-8 is also equipped with a series of common digital inputs so that it can serve as a stand-alone DAC with any other digital source as well. These inputs are automatically switched off internally if not selected to prevent any negative effect of asynchronous data

streams from reaching the DAC. DAC architecture, discrete own proprietary digital algorithms and dual differential
analog output stage. Each analog output stage (for each channel) is completely separated on its own printed
circuit board with its own independent linear power supply for maximum performance. Volume control: an ultra
high-end analog volume control can be activated for each channel.
