Metrum Acoustics Menuet NOS Digital Analogue Converter

In order to improve upon the Hex we stopped looking towards to our secret industrial chip, and implemented our new Transient technology as used in our flagship Pavane . The Menuet is using the same basic frame as used for the Hex. However to avoid internal vibration the electronics are built on a well damped sub chassis .

The Menuet is using four Transient™ R2R ladder modules as used in the Pavane. These modules can handle extreme high sampling rates but are limited to current industry standards which has its maximum (384kHz) on the USB input. Like the Pavane digital data will be split over two 12 bit clusters. Each dac cluster processes a portion of the data in the most linear region of the dac chips and as a result a full 24 bits range in the analog domain will be realized.

Despite the single board design, channel separation is close to a dual mono operation. This contributes to the flawless positioning of instruments. The result of this process is an extremely fast and accurate behavior and brings  listening experience on a higher level. In short, the Menuet is a DAC that has taken all the lessons and experiences that her designer has learned over the years, and combined them in an ambitious DAC that can fit in every system. It is musical, honours the Non-oversampling principle while simultaneously incorporating the technological progress that has been made over the years.
