McIntosh DA2 Digital Audio Module Upgrade Kit

  • 1 min read

McIntosh MA9000, MA8900, MA7200, MA5300, MAC7200, and C49 owners now have an upgrade path for the digital DA1 module these units came with. 

The McIntosh DA2 is a dealer-installed upgrade replacement for the DA1 that adds brand new state-of-the-art digital features to your McIntosh.  

The McIntosh DA2 features:

  • Seven inputs: 
    • 2 Optical
    • 2 Coax
    • 1 USB
    • 1 MCT,
    • 1 HDMI with ARC (Audio Return Channel)
  • Supports up to DSD512, DXD 384
  • New Audiophile-grade 32-bit DAC

The HDMI ARC input is especially useful because you can now have your HDMI ARC equipped TV send audio to your McIntosh. This is ideal for those with multiple media devices directly plugged into their television. ARC provides two-way communication between your McIntosh DA2 equipped stereo and your TV, giving you volume control and lip-sync functionality as well as stereo conversion of Dolby and DTS multichannel formats. 

McIntosh DA2 installation is a service we can perform at Pearl Audio.  The New DA2 is priced at $1000 and this includes installation. You may order over the phone and bring in your unit for upgrade which we can do while you wait and listen to some music!
