Regular price $299.00 Sale

The miniDSP N-DAC8 is an 8-channel Digital to Analog convertor that accepts input over Ethernet using the Audio Video Bridging standard (AVB). By combining the power of an XMOS chipset with an AKM DAC, the N-DAC8 achieves great audio performance in a small form factor. From basic surround sound audio (5.1/7.1) to the latest immersive audio standards (multiple N-DAC8), miniDSP makes multichannel streaming affordable & easy.

With Plug & Play support for Mac OS X, the N-DAC8 supports either direct connection to the computer or connection over AVB-enabled Ethernet. The sturdy black metallic enclosure with mounting brackets is a perfect fit for any equipment rack.

NOTE: This product is an AVB compliant device that will require an AVB switch. Please read more from below for options available.
