The Digital Director

MSB Technology

D/A Converter


The Digital Director enhances essential DAC functions, externally managing digital audio sources, noise isolation and processing.

Using MSB's proprietary ProISL laser fiber optic connection, the Digital Director eliminates noise coupling into the DAC from any digital source. Increased processing power ensures their digital filtering algorithms achieve a new level of realistic and accurate analog reproduction. The Digital Director levels up the performance of all digital audio.

Increased Isolation and Performance
In keeping with MSB's core design principles, the Digital Director seamlessly supports and augments all current DAC's. Two-way communication between the Digital Director and the DAC enables seamless input selection and systems settings on a single display and control. By outsourcing digital input modules to the Digital Director, the DAC becomes a dedicated conversion engine while the Digital Director manages and isolates all incoming noise. Plus, MSB's proprietary ProISL laser fiber optic connection eliminates noise coupling in the DAC, elevating all digital audio source to new heights.
Authentic Reconstruction
MSB's Prime and Hybrid DAC modules signaled a gigantic leap forward in accurate and realistic audio reproduction. In order to push their audio technology even further, the Digital Director uses two performance DSP's, each capable of sustaining 12 billion operations per second that work in tandem with two dedicated FPGAs. This is more than 4x the processing power currently available in the DACs onboard processors, extending the life of new and existing DACs well into the future.
But that's not all: advanced new digital filters, born from decades of research and development, ensures MSB's DACs offer a superior authentic reconstruction of the original analog signal. This allows for more expansive soundstage, and more beautiful textures from complex performances such as massed horns, vocals, close mic'd piano, large ensembles, and full orchestras - What emerges is the most natural and emotional presentation MSB has ever created.

Premier CNC Billet Chassis
Staring with a 42lb plate of 'Kaiser Select Precision Plate, the chassis is machined in MSB's own in-house CNS shop. After more that six hours of machining, more than half of the aluminium is removed, resulting in a 11lb finished product. The integration of their CNC shop allows for design optimisation, creating the best possible product.

Reference CNC Billet Chassis
Staring with a 65lb. plate of 'Kaiser Select Precision Plate, the chassis is machined in MSB's own in-house CNS shop. After more that six hours of machining, more than half of the aluminium is removed, resulting in a 23lb. finished product. The integration of their CNC shop allows for design optimisation, creating the best possible product.

Select CNC Billet Chassis
Staring with a 85lb. plate of 'Kaiser Select Precision Plate, the chassis is machined in MSB's own in-house CNS shop. After more that six hours of machining, more than half of the aluminium is removed, resulting in a 23lb. finished product. The integration of their CNC shop allows for design optimisation, creating the best possible product.

MSB uses premium 'Select Metal' giving them the highest quality anodized finishes on the market.

Linear Power Supply
The Reference and Select Digital Directors include an upgraded low-noise linear power supply. Designed and build in-house, they future the same custom isolate transformers found in MSB's DAC powerbases. Reducing the noise in the system always results in improved performance - this is no exception.
Anodized Finishes.
Elegant yet commanding, MSB's finishes are available in matte silver of matte black anodised. Their products include their in-house designed viton feet, but any audiophile M6X1 foot can be installed to personalize your system.
