Nagra HD DAC with MPS External Power Supply

One of the legendary companies in fine audio is Nagra. As a lifelong lover of reel-to-reel recorders, I’ve known the name for decades…it’s highly respected.

In conjunction with the extraordinary Sound Galleries SGM2015, we brought in two different DSD DACs to receive the output from that Music Server. The Nagra was very highly recommended by Edward Hsu of Sound Galleries for this project, provided that it was the configuration with the Nagra MPS external power supply, as well as the active XLR outputs.… Read the full article

Prices from £10.00 per m (UK RRP)

Portable gear simply keeps getting better as new technology more easily finds its way to the portable market.… Read the full article
