Probably the best Dac you can buy for money on the market today, it fits in the price range from 1200 € up to 1500 € (2012-2016) from my point of view.
Price at 600-700 € new from stores in 2016.
-That is a bargain compare to the good quality of the product and the possibilities to upgrade or personalize your own Dac.

The M-dac has lot of different hardware and software upgrades from real hardcore tech-enthusiast/professionells.
Software is possible to download from M-dac Wiki page (www.mdac.referata.com) and you can read more about hardware updates.

I think this is a must try product if you want a real good Dac or preamplifier, including a nice petite remote control.
