Model 1 Series II D/A Converter

The M1 Series II introduces a new look and feel to the M1 series of products and encompasses many elements of Bricasti Design’s vast wealth of experience engineering precision D/A’s to transform the M1 with the audio purist in mind. The M1S2 is focused on simplicity of design and includes a host of new performance milestones including our latest MDx processor, new higher current twin linear power supplies with larger performance capacitors, all fit into a handcrafted chassis milled from solid aluminum that stands taller in size fitted with the same M1SE feet as standard.

Extreme Performance

A high-performance linear power architecture allows for a clean signal with extremely low noise and expansive headroom. Featuring Point-to-point wiring and stillpoint isolation integrated directly into the chassis, you will experience new depth, detail and dimensionality in your music. Improved spacial cues and separation create a truly immersive experience.

Purity of signal

The M1 Series II utilizes Bricasti Design's latest proprietary MDx digital platform, clocking algorithms and filter technology for exceptional performance wthout the use of SRC's so signals stay native. The digital section is coupled with a pristine analog path with the goal to deliver the truest possibly representation of tonality, precision and dimension.

Network Streaming

The optional Network player offers one of the most sonically advantages avenues for audio playback created in the last decade, with pristine data transmission over long distances, without loss of signal or degradation from cable runs. This means your server can be located anywhere on the network rather than in your listening space, creating a clutter-free listening environment and ground-breaking performance.

Masterfully connected

The M1S2 digital input selection is well appointed to fit most any system. It also features a fully differential design which creates a less resistant output signal path, ideal when matched with fully differential M20 preamplifier and the Bricasti M28 and M25 amplifiers.

Handcrafted in the USA

All of our products are crafted in the old world tradition, in a classic brick mill building in Massachusetts USA by a team of individuals dedicated to excellence.
