Description
Details

Musical Fidelity V-DAC II is an updated version of the award winning original V-DAC, an already state-of-the-art DAC with improved measured performance and impressive new brushed metal detail. Like the original, V-DAC II has been engineered to be as simple as it can possibly be - and no simpler. As a result, it offers sonic performance equal to or greater than many so-called high end DACs at many times the price.

 V-DAC II Features

- Lower noise
- Better linearity
- Ruler flat frequency response
- Excellent stereo separation
- Ultra low distortion (0.002% from 20Hz - 20kHz)
- Incredibly low jitter
- Asychronous USB input

As per the original, the V-DAC II is powered by a 12V DC power supply and features a 24-bit 192k DAC (digital to analogue converter), offering true upsampling, along with flexible inputs for all of your digital sources, with Coax, Optical and USB digital inputs, along with standard stereo RCA outputs.

The technical performance of the V-DAC II is in a word sensational. There is no magic or hocus pocus here, nor is this simply clever marketing. Musical Fidelity offers this high level of performance simply by using state-of-the-art digital components, circuitry and layout, along with no additional expenditure on over the top packaging or other wastage. It's basically like a fine tuned racing car - functional with no excess weight/expense!

Why use a V-DAC II?

V-DAC II will improve the sound of your digital sources when connected inbetween source and amplifier. Connect the digital output from your PC, Mac, Blu Ray Player, CD player or any other digital source to the V-DAC and it's state-of-the-art design will convert the digital sound to analogue for your amp.

Why use this if your digital source already has it's own DAC built in? Two reasons. Firstly, the DAC in your CD player for example is part of a much larger component, made to a specific budget and as such it's DAC is unlikely to be optimised for the level of performance of the V-DAC II. Secondly, the V-DAC II upsamples your digital source (for example, upsampling the standard CD 44k to 192k) and as a result can make your digital source sound much smoother and as a result more lifelike.

V-DAC II is released alongside other MkII V-series models, including the V-CAN II headphone amplifier, V-LINK II S/PDIF converter, V-LPS II phono stage and the V-PSU II power supply upgrade.

Musical Fidelity VDAC 2 DACReview by The_Rebel
Product Rating
Used as a DAC for Squeezebox Touch; using Arcam Alpha 9 integrated amplifier and Monitor Audio Bronze BX5 floorstanding speakers. Excellent DAC - whereas the Squeezobox Touch sounded very cold and clinical using it's built-in DAC, the Musical Fidelity VDAC 2 sounds lively, warm and natural. No regrets whatsoever. Tempted to get the Musical Fidelity V-PSU 2 as well, but in the end opted for Maplin's 20W regulated PSU which only cost £20. Highly recommended DAC! (Posted on 19/08/2012)
