Similar in size to a small matchbox, M-DAC nano is a brilliantly simple way to transform headphone sound quality when you are on the go.
Digital upsampling technology, hi-res digital-to-analogue conversion and powerful amplification deliver enhanced sound quality that is far superior to plugging headphones/earphones directly into your device.
M-DAC nano connects wirelessly to Android phones, iPhones and tablets via Bluetooth, untethering the listener’s headphones from the playback device. This makes it much more convenient for mobile use than DAC/headphone amps that require cables to connect.
Bluetooth reception (with support for aptX, aptX Low Latency and AAC) means no more messing with USB OTG cables for Android devices and all the necessary cables/adapters for iOS devices, in contrast to portable DAC/headphone amps that require USB connection. Just pair and go.
M-DAC nano is a great way to use corded headphones with an iPhone 7 or later (those without a headphone output) – no Lightning adapter required.
The built-in battery also supports Qi wireless charging – simply place the unit on the charging pad (included) and get up to eight hours of playing time.
M-DAC Nano can also be used to add high-quality Bluetooth reception to a home-based audio system. Simply connect the 3.5mm headphone output to a 3.5mm AUX input or RCA-phono inputs using a suitable cable.
M-DAC is the multi award-winning range of standalone digital-to-analogue converters from Audiolab, comprising Nano, Mini, the original M-DAC, M-DAC Plus, and M-ONE models.
The range covers pure high-resolution D/A conversion, plus both digital and analogue amplification, and various levels of input/output flexibility, portability and usage.
