The MEDUS has its origins in our product line for professional mastering studios. Mastering Engineers have the Golden Ears to give the music recordings the final touch before their release. So the MEDUS is as transparent as it can be. Hands down the best Digital to Analog Converter money can buy.
MEDUS is a stereo 24 Bit/192 kHz Digital to Analog Converter designed with the aim of keeping an absolutely uncompromising audio signal path. Much detail and thought was spent on the digital input as well as the analog output stage. Both have in common the purest possible approach in audio design, aspiring for nothing less than excellence. This is coupled with an ergonomic design that gives the user immediate access to all necessary functions, while keeping an uncluttered and thus easy-to-use front panel. This combination makes a truly professional D/A converter catering for the highest expectations.
The MEDUS works with AES/EBU, S/DIF, USB and Firewire (optional) inputs and handles PCM as well as DSD signals. An IR remote unit controls all functions.
The MEDUS can be used in a variety of configurations. In all cases the MEDUS can be used as a pre-amplifier as well. This allows to reduce the number of components in a playback system by connecting the MEDUS directly to the power amplifier. Typical applications are:
- Connecting a computer via USB for file playback, including DSD file playback
- Connecting a CD Transport
- Connecting a radio or TV e.g. via the TOSLINK input
With the optional inputs (Firewire or ST glass fiber) the connectivity is further enhanced. E.g. with the ST glass fiber it is possible to connect the MEDUS to the JASON CD Transport directly via a glass fiber connection.
