Musical Fidelity V90 DAC

In an effort to keep our Hereford show-room as up-to-date as possible with fresh demonstration stock, we routinely rotate the models on display and sell them at a cheaper price. This V90-DAC is one such product; excellent condition with the same warranty, packaging, accessories and documentation as a new unit. 

Musical Fidelity have a world renowned reputation in audio DAC design, and we are pleased to present this new DAC converter, V90-DAC , which supersedes the V-DAC II. Although having a similar feature set to its predecessor, the sampling precision from 24 to 32-bit 192 kHz gives the new device real appeal to music lovers on a tight budget .

Digial audio signal timing error  (jitter) is down to less than 12 pico seconds whilst signal to noise ration is -117dB, a brilliant achievement for a digital to analogue converter, and has great benefits to sound quality including great transparency and stereo focus.

This digital-to-analogue converter provides the same input and output connectivity as its predecessor, the VDAC2, with an optical input and more. From a technical perspective, the V90-DAC provides an over-sampling 32-bit 192 kHz making it one of the best DAC market below £500.

The Musical Fidelity V-90 has a very accomplished technical performance at it's price -   at 1 kHz , the distortion is 0.00025% . At 20 kHz , it is virtually unchanged at 0.0003% . The frequency response is perfectly flat. The weighted noise level (A) is better than 120dB and linearity is maintained below 115dB .

Unlike other devices of the Musical Fidelity V-series, the V90-DAC features a new chassis allowing it to take its place next to our stereo components. Sober and well designed , this little prodigy will also be much more convenient to use than its predecessors. VDAC and VDAC2 were more designed to be hidden, which was not always easy when we needed access to plug or unplug a device.

Big upgrade from V-DAC Review by Sid Nolan
Just moved up to the V90-DAC from a 2 year old V-dac, and the sound quality upgrade is immediate and very satisfying. Works great with my Sonos Connect streamer. (Posted on 21/08/2013)
