In this world of endless distraction, the m920 is designed to enable limitless engagement.

Performance and features to rival any playback hardware
Building on our 15 years of experience designing reference playback equipment, the technology in the m920 is as evolved as it is refined. The new, world-class M Series 32-bit Sabre DAC provides an astonishing improvement in digital performance, delivering up to 32bit/384kHz PCM and 64x and 128x DSD playback. This DAC allows the user to select between 3 different digital filter response curves: fast, slow and minimum phase - which helps tailor the DAC section to personal tastes. Third generation s-Lock PLL circuitry improves jitter rejection without the use of sample rate converters. Asynchronous USB playback allows bit-perfect audio playback from your computer.
The analogue design is carefully executed to ensure signals are rendered perfectly regardless of what type headphone drivers, amplifiers or speakers are being used. High current trans-impedance output amplifiers can easily drive 8 ohm loads, making the m920 a perfect choice for even the lowest impedance headphones. Only the highest quality 0.5% metal film resistors are used throughout and there are no electrolytic capacitors in the signal path. Sealed gold contact relays are used for all signal switching.
The m920 is one of the great values in high end audio
We began building compact headphone amp / DAC's over 15 years ago. So the m920 represents lots of refinement with the addition of years of real world customer feedback. We have thousands and thousands of happy owners of these products. While there are countless more affordable derivative devices available now, a careful examination of the refinement, performance and design of the m920 reveals a product that is a little bit more expensive but a lot more value.
For the Audiophile
With several IR remote control options, including the Grace Design remote, or the apple remote and iOS / Android via Logitech Harmony, DSD128 playback, and beautiful, stable, open audio performance, the m920 will grace your system and engage you with your collection like never before.
