  Emm labs' DA2 V2 is their updated flagship 16xDSD / DSD1024 stereo D/A converter (DAC). It is the next evolutionary step within their line of award winning, critically acclaimed range of high end converter systems. The DA2 V2 features a multitude of inputs and support for PCM up to 24-bit/192kHz, DSD, 2xDSD, DXD (352/384 kHz), and MQA via USB.


16xDSD Proprietary Discrete DACs
MDAC2 is said to be the world's first true fully discrete DSD1024 / 16xDSD D/A converter and still built in-house at our manufacturing facility in Calgary, Canada. emm labs is not willing to accept the inherent non-linearities of every mass-market chip created to date. Neither should you.


Newly Updated MDAT2: 16xDSD Upsampling
Their multi-award winning MDAT2 DSP has been refined and updated to synergistically work with the new 16xDSD MDAC2. The new MDAT2 DSP does real-time transient detection, processing and up-conversion of all incoming audio, PCM and DSD, before sending it to the new 16xDSD DACs.

USB Isolation, MFAST and MCLK2
The USB interface includes emm labs' proprietary hardware galvanic isolation. In combination with MFAST, our high-speed asynchronous jitter removal technology and MCLK2 custom built clock, jitter is completely removed from the conversion process.

The new DA2 V2's analog and digital systems have been meticulously revised. All culminating in that next level of immersive pristine sonic clarity that has been the definition of every new EMM product. The DA2 V2, emm labs' new reference converter proudly designed and made in Canada.
