A new feature for the M12 is a network interface and media renderer. This allows the M12 to be seen as a DLNA device on an audio network and server as an audio device to play or stream to through a wired connection on your network. Now you can run wired data longer distances without loss in quality so your network server can go anywhere you choose.
Analog gain control has allowed us to take DSD playback to the ultimate level. The M12 features a pure analog DSD converter; any filtering and level is accomplished in the analog domain. When processed this way, no digital signal processing is done. Typically in most DACs the DSD is converted to a multi-bit sigma delta or PCM signal for filter processing. With the M12 we offer a pure DSD path and all post processing for noise filtering and level control are accomplished purely in the analog domain.
All analog, precise, silent control with 90db of control range in one db steps, all remote controlled and programmable. The M12 digital controlled fully balanced dual mono resistor ladder is as good as level can be, and inserted at the source, at the output of the DAC’s I-V stage. This approach provides some of the best digital playback possible and analog control from the M12 balanced or unbalanced inputs.
