Grace Design m900

Compact, Portable Headphone Amp / DAC / Preamp

Tiny Box, Huge Sound

The m900 is a portable, desktop-friendly headphone amplifier / DAC / preamp combo designed to give audio professionals and enthusiasts musical and transparent audio playback from USB, S/PDIF or TOSLINK sources. For small DAW studio setups, portable laptop editing or mixing rigs, or just pure playback enjoyment, the m900 provides the same analog and DAC quality as Grace Design’s large monitor controllers, but in a small, rugged, and surprisingly affordable unit.

Incredible DAC Performance

The m900 DAC uses the latest generation AKM 4490 chip, which features 32-bit processing and supports sample rates up to 384kHz PCM or 256x DSD. The USB interface operates in asynchronous mode allowing the m900 to be the clock master, which makes the system immune to USB bus jitter. S/PDIF and Toslink inputs allow the m900 to enhance any DAW interface with true reference quality D/A conversion, headphone monitoring, and stereo speaker control.

Intelligent Power Supply Design

An intelligent power supply design allows for two power operation modes – LOW and HIGH. LOW power mode is from USB connector #1, which provides bus power along with data, allowing the m900 to operate from a single connection to your computer. HIGH power mode is available by connecting the included 2A USB DC power supply to the USB connector #2, which provides additional power for harder-to-drive headphones.

Superb Audio Performance

Transimpedance amplifier topology coupled to a zero-ohm output impedance driver provides headphone performance that is incredibly spacious and transparent with a tight, enveloping low end. Grace Design’s latest generation crossfeed circuit rounds out the design by simulating an acoustic listening environment in the headphones. Familiar tracks become new again with surprising details, while audio production tasks like tracking, mixing, and editing happen faster and easier.

After many years of honing DAC and headphone amplifier designs, the m900 distills the best of what Grace Design has learned in a compact, rugged, and simple unit. Whether in the studio, on your desk, or on the road, the m900 will bring you closer to the music you love.
