The gang of four founded Mhdt Lab in 2002 and are known as: ‘Music Heaven Development Team’.
They had decided to begin designing DACs to bring the feeling and fun back to digital. Motivated by the shortcomings of most DACs to faithfully convey, with spirit, varying styles of music, they have successfully created affordable great sounding and flexible little gems. Asynchronous and synchronous inputs, BNC, USB, RCA, and Toslink. The best of R-2R Burr-Brown PCM56P-J DACs, and a single NOS GE5670 vacuum tube buffered output stage in its circuit design brings the soul into the digital realm.
“‘Less is more’ is still the major rule we follow in our designs. By using the PCM56P, and due to its current output, we can omit the use of amplification (the op-amp), which provides a purer signal than can be achieved with a more complicated circuit.”
I was impressed by its prowess in textures & colors… when playing what is assuredly a fairly low-rez stream, it made the music vibrant, colorful, and magically engaging! From a sonic standpoint, all those things you want to hear, like imaging, soundstaging, and a sense of space – were there in spades!
“L. came home from work, put on his sweat pants, made himself a amaretto and coke with ice, went in the theater, sat down and stared at the blank screen for half an hour. Then he closed his jaw, smiled and said "boy that Jennifer did a great job, I love it!" no joke. Thanks…”
