M18D - Fein DAC
The M18D, "Fein DAC" is the our midrange Digitial to Analog Converter (DAC) featuring the AKM 4493EQ DAC chip. This state of the art chip improves on previous models with both new features and improved performance. The Fein DAC now showcases audio filters for DSD playback and features a new low-dispersion filter for PCM playback. As the new 2018 mainline DAC of Gieseler Audio, we hope you'll enjoy even greater performance at an even lower cost.
