Music Hall C-DAC15.3 DAC/CD Player

Versatility, Performance, and Value

Versatility, performance, and value are the hallmarks of the Music Hall C-DAC15.3 CD Player/DAC. By combining a fantastic three-input DAC with a great sounding CD player, Music Hall has designed a one-box solution that will simplify and dramatically improve your digital music experience.

Connect the c-dac15.3 to a computer, Sonos, Apple TV, Airport Express, or any digital streaming device. Or simply play a CD. You’ll be amazed by the sonic performance, especially compared to ‘lesser’ gear lacking Music Hall’s extensive pedigree.

Two DACs on Board

The c-dac15.3 has two separate DACs on board. It uses a 24-bit/192 kHz Burr-Brown PCM 1796 DAC for the CD player. The three inputs – optical, coaxial digital, and USB-B – use a 24-bit/192 kHz Wolfson WM8805 Digital to Analog Converter. The transport is the trusted Sanyo HD850 ‘mid-ship mounted’ and vibration damped. There is a gold-plated stereo analog output as well as a coaxial digital output.

Features Galore

Other features include a brushed aluminum faceplate, high efficiency toroidal power transformer, removable power cord, and special padded vibration damping feet. The c-dac15.3 is voltage switchable and plays CD and CD-R/RW formats.

Great sound and simplicity go together. The Music Hall C-DAC15.3 CD Player/DAC is easy to operate and partners beautifully with Music Hall’s matching a15.3 integrated amp. The included system remote control operates both components, and the c-dac15.3 has an easy-to-view display.

Stephen Mejias, of Stereophile says:

“… I know of no other CD player in the Music Hall’s price range that comes with as many high-quality digital inputs.”

“Music Hall’s newest and most affordable electronics are models of extreme utility. The c-dac15.3 combines a single-disc CD player and three-input (USB, TosLink, coaxial) digital-to-analog converter in a single box…”

“It comes with a robust AC cord and a slim remote control whose metallic charcoal finish, gold-hued buttons, and textured backside make it unusually attractive and satisfying to use.”
