By: |

Massachusetts-based Bricasti Design’s claim to fame is in the design and manufacturing of professional components for recording studios, its product line comprising the Model 7 Stereo Reverb Processor, the Model 7M Mainframe Stereo Reverb Processor, the Model 15 Stereo Power Amplifier and the Model 28 Monoblock Amplifier. In the consumer section, the company’s M1 dual-mono digital-to-analog converter showcases the company’s expertise.

Earlier this year, Bricasti Design released its next-generation DAC, the M21 Platinum. Retailing for $19,000, the M21 offers the following:

  • an advanced architecture that allows the selection and evaluation of digital music via three independent conversion paths: 24 bit delta sigma, 20 bit ladder dac and true 1 bit DSD for DSD. Per the company’s website: ‘Engineering autonomous conversion paths creates a super-efficient platform for you to enjoy your music and explore the advantages of each.’
  • seamlessly network integration: ‘Once detected by your network via wired ethernet, the M21 is recognized as a DNLA device and becomes a powerful media renderer offering pristine data transmission over long distances, without loss of signal or degradation. Now your server can be placed anywhere on the network and run remotely lending to a clutter-free listening environment.’
  • ‘The M21 utilizes precise analog gain control for its execution of direct DSD functionality and driving amplification. It features a true hard-wire bypass analog attenuator, setting this control to 0 db makes possible the use of the M21 direct to an external preamp as well. Flexibility is what the the M21 design is all about.’
