Merason DAC1 MkII

Mera's N°2 son – It's the Merason DAC1 MkII [€8K] from CH whose upgrade package can retrofit to original units. A new PCB layout with predominantly SMD rather than thru-hole parts promises less loss and the low-pass caps now use poylstyrene dielectric. The transistor-to-radiator mounting has been updated to disc-spring tension for optimal thermal coupling. As a result, Merason promises improved S/NR ratio and more expansive soundstaging.
