Micromega MyDAC Details

Micromega MyDAC Asynchronous USB Digital-to-Analog Converter: "The Micromega gives you some sonic attributes usually reserved for much more expensive DACs"

  • USB input (Type 1 and 2) 24-bits/192kHz
  • Coax and Toslink inputs
  • Extremely low jitter (less than 50ps)
  • Separate master clock for 44.1kHz and 48kHz
  • Dedicated power supplies, one for digital and one for analog
  • Built-in power supply
  • Available in black and white finishes
"Every so often in high-end audio a product comes along that shatters the price-to-performance ratio we’ve come to expect in a category… You can add another future legend to the list: the $399 Micromega MyDAC… I dropped the MyDAC into my reference system and was shocked by how good it sounded for the price. The Micromega gives you some sonic attributes usually reserved for much more expensive DACs — qualities like air around instruments, a sense of three-dimensional space, and a laid-back sense of ease. Through the Micromega, instruments don’t sound like flat cardboard cutouts; they are instead fully fleshed out three-dimensional images surrounded by a wonderful bloom. In these qualities, the Micromega’s sound would not be out of place in a $2000 DAC."
    — Robert Harley The Absolute Sound September 2012

The new Micromega MyDAC is the perfect link between your computer and your hi-fi system. It’s an asynchronous 24/192 DAC that delivers a world-class performance/price ratio. It delivers a wide soundstage, well-controlled bass, and accurate high-frequencies. Your desktop or nearly any other digital system will sound demonstrably better with the MyDAC. With both USB and TosLink inputs, virtually any digital source can be improved by the addition of the MyDAC. A 4- position horizontal rotary switch with anodized aluminum wheel allows easy selection between STBY – USB – COAX – OPTO.

The MyDAC's USB input works in asynchronous mode up to 24-bits/192kHz and accepts USB audio class 1.0 and USB audio class 2.0 modes without any driver implementation for Mac, and a with a custom Micromega driver for PC. USB asynchronous mode means practically no jitter thanks to two very low jitter master clocks (22.5792 MHz for multiple of 44.1kHz and 24.5760 MHz for multiple of 48kHz), with dedicated low noise power supplies, for the optimum performance from your digital files.

This is the only DAC at this price with a low-noise, designed-for-audio power supply.In fact, there are two dedicated power supplies -- one for the digital section, and one for the audio section -- which deliver customized currents tailored to each section's needs. And the MyDAC uses no capacitors in either the audio signal path or the power supply path, so there is minimal electrical interference.
