I have had this M1 DAC-A since new. It is the . After a move about 4 years ago, it has sat in storage, which is a total waste of a good unit. Great sounding, with lovely, punchy bass and a lovely, open soundstage as highlights.

The Musical Fidelity M1 DAC is easy to listen to and just as easy to like. I'd characterize its overall presentation as being on the taught ("toight like a tiger" for Goldmember fans) and resolute side. I'd also suggest that this perception varies somewhat depending on the input: Toslink seems to favor attack or edges over harmonic density whereas USB adds back some weight with less edge. Overall, music is presented in a convincingly portrayed stage with a very distinct separation of sonic elements regardless of size or complexity of source material. The M1s ability to unravel musical complexities is a pleasure to partake in and perhaps one of its most compelling features. Things sound clean, lively and as snappy as the music demands. There's never a sense of sonic grunge or a lack of dynamic rigor. Music moves.

With the M1 DAC, I heard a degree of low-level resolution I'd never before heard from a DAC. I think this may have had to do with the M1's astonishingly low noise floor: an absence of hash, of electronic grunge, of anything that compromised purity or sweetness of tone. 

 

It has a couple of very slight scuffs on the top, but I had trouble getting them visible in photos.

 

I have all packaging, so shipping should not be a problem.

 

I am working on rotating some of the images. Don't know why they are upside down...

For a DAC it has pretty much every connection method including XLR.

What you can expect from this DAC is an impressive soundstage and a very accurate tonal balance that will give your audio ‘real musicality’ including great timing due to the M1-DAC doing a flawless job at removing jitter and allowing your music to breath..

Well GLWTS, this is a great price for a quality piece of equipment..

Absolute bargain!!
