Article: Meitner Audio MA3 Integrated D/A Converter Review

Recommended Posts

Hello - purchased this DAC recently to replace my PS Audio Directstream Sr. I am really enjoying it. In my system it is a tad bright but I have tamed that a bit with isolation. But while having that sonic signature it also brings incredible sound stage/timbre/separation of instruments. Instruments just sound right (not to quote a conrad-johnson tag line :D )


Curious about the digital vol level to use when utilizing a preamp. Does everyone using it this way run it full out at 100?


Thank you
