Introducing the Merason DAC Range
Crafted in Switerland
Designed with Price in Mind
Handcrafted in Worb, Switzerland, with the greatest possible care, Daniel Frauchiger and his team at Merason craft some exceptional products. Merason’s goal from the beginning was to create very analogue-sounding DACs that perform well above their respective price points; they have more than met that brief, exceeding it by a large margin.
"The task of every MERASON component is to pass on the emotions immediately - from the artist to the listener."
Merason products have quickly gained the attention, and
high praise from the Hi-Fi Press, Retailers and customers
alike. Reading the reviews and feedback, you will pick out

their sonic signature and lack of what is often referred to as
‘digital harshness’ has left even die-hard fans of vinyl and
analogue tape impressed, demonstrating what is possible

The richness of the sound won’t be to every taste, but it’s never cloying or overplayed: instead, Merason’s DAC1 backs up its smoothness with power and unforced detail to consistently appealing musical effect. True, the limited format handling may rule the DAC1 out for some – it takes a stand against digital expansionism! – but its singularity of purpose pays off in a sound as
appealing as it is easy to enjoy.
