EMM Labs DV2 Integrated D/A Converter
The EMM Labs DV2 Integrated D/A Converter builds on EMM Labs’ groundbreaking technology used in their flagship, multi-award winning DA2 converter by integrating EMM’s high-resolution volume control system (VControl™) into their discrete, single-bit converter.
VControl™ maintains the input signal without re-quantization allowing for complete transparency at any volume setting, wide attenuation range, and no loss of audio resolution.
16xDSD MDAC2™ and MDAT2™ DSP
MDAC2™ is the worlds first fully discrete single-bit D-to-A converter with an internal conversion rate of 1024fs (16xDSD) and is completely free of inherent non-linearity that plagues every mass-market chip created to date.
The MDAT2™ DSP has been refined and updated to synergistically work with the MDAC2™. The MDAT2™ DSP performs real-time transient detection in addition to processing and up-conversion of all incoming audio before being sent to the MDAC2™ for conversion.
USB Isolation, MFAST™, and MCLK2™
The USB interface includes EMM’s proprietary hardware galvanic isolation. In combination with MFAST™, our high-speed asynchronous jitter removal technology and MCLK2™ our custom-built clock, jitter is completely removed from the conversion process.
The DV2 features a multitude of inputs and support for PCM up to 24bit/192kHz, DSD, 2xDSD, DXD, and for the first time in any EMM Labs product, MQA® via USB.
With its redesigned analog and digital systems, integrated high-resolution volume control, discrete componentry, and user-friendly operation, the DV2 can be connected directly to the amplification stage in any high-fidelity system with ease. Designed and manufactured in Canada for the digital audio enthusiast.
