Micromega MyDAC: A Miraculous New Digital Audio Solution

Micromega's MyDac is a fantastic asynchronous 24/192 DAC at a price far less than its performance would suggest. Incredibly wide soundstaging, well-controlled bass, and crisp, articulate highs all flow forth from this little miracle. You won't believe how good your digital setup sounds after integrating the MyDac into your system. With both USB and TosLink inputs, virtually any digital source can be improved by the addition of the 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. Timbres are remarkably smooth and free from grain. The bass is solid and tight, although the very lowest bass lacks ultimate authority."
– Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound

The MyDAC's USB input works in asynchronous mode up to 24bits/192kHz and accepts USB audio class 1.0 and USB audio class 2.0 modes without any driver implementation for Mac, and a custom Micromega driver for PC. The MyDAC also delivers measurably insignificant jitter in USB asynchronous mode 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 clearest, cleanest, smoothest sound imaginable from your digital files.

The MyDAC uses no capacitors in either the audio signal path or the power supply path for an absolute minimum of electrical interference. The MyDAC is also the only DAC at this price point with a low-noise, designed-for-audio power supply. Two dedicated power supplies, one for the digital section, and one for the audio section, deliver customized currents tailored to each section's needs. The sealed ABS enclosure controls the electromagnetic field on the board level, omitting any interference from an otherwise electrically conductive casing.
