merason frerot digital to analogue convertor

The Swiss are famous for their precision watch engineering, but generally overlooked for their hi-fi. Merason continue this tradition, producing straightforward, high end digital to analogue convertors for discerning music listeners.

Digital inputs come in the form of two optical, two coaxial, and USB.


Unbalanced RCA outputs provide a 2v output, and fully balanced XLR outputs provide 4v output, allowing connection to suitably equipped amplifiers.

The back panel of the Merason Frerot DAC is a simple affair, as the magic happens inside...

The Merason DAC1 is a simple DAC for those wanting straightforward decoding from conventional digital sources such as compact disc players, streamers, and music servers such as 432 EVO. The Frerot is based around the Burr Brown PCM1794A DAC chips - a popular choice for high end digital conversion - using Class A topology, and components chosen by hand based on listening tests rather than cold hard specifications.
