MHDT Lab – Stockholm DAC

Building on the success of the Havana DAC, the new Stockholm DAC from MHDT Lab added the 24 bit / 192kHz High Definition capability to the same analog circuit that made Havana a Music Lovers’ favorite.

Read the full review of Havana DAC at Positive Feedback Online:

… The Havana is a very musical USB DAC that always delivers a pleasurable listening session across a broad range of musical styles and variable recording quality. The way the Havana presents the musical content or recordings is simply beautiful, with timbre and time elements (melody, tempo, dynamics, rhythm, etc.) portrayed in outstanding and musically natural fashion. Of equal importance is the superb presentation of the audio bokeh of the non-musical elements of recordings like imaging, soundstaging, detail recovery, and the like, that always complemented, but never detracted, from the core musical performance— an outstanding combination of traits that the design team at Mhdt Labs deserves kudos for getting it so right.
