M19D - Fein DAC II
Note now discontinued as the AKM DAC is no longer avilable
The AKM DAC chips are no longer available so production has been discontinued.
This is a special enhanced version.
All the monolithic regulators have been replaced with a discreet shunt design.
Also the microprocessor & display have seperate internal transformers for power to reduce noise entering the analog circuits.
The M19D, "Fein DAC II" is our new upgraded replacement for the M18D, now featuring an integrated high quality low-noise power supply for a marginal increase in cost.
Serving as our midrange Digitial to Analog Converter (DAC) utilizing 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 showcases audio filters for DSD playback and features a new low-dispersion filter for PCM playback.
As the new 2019 mainline DAC of Gieseler Audio, we hope you'll enjoy even greater performance at an even lower cost.
Available in either a USB-only variant or a Optical/Coaxial/USB variant.
