Meridian's Explorer2 is a portable, compact and rugged USB DAC designed to deliver best-in-class audio performance. Explorer2 upsamples all input signal to 176.4/192kHz and removes digital filter artifacts from earlier digital recordings so that they can actually sound better than they did in the studio. Two outputs are provided. A 3.5mm mini-plug headphone jack delivers up to 130mW of high-quality audio capable of driving even low-efficiency headphones. The volume is controlled from the host computer and is an advanced design with an extended range of 0 to -100dB. This level of variability suits all kinds of headphones, including the most sensitive types. A second 3.5mm mini-plug jack provides a fixed-level analog (2v RMS) output for connection to an external audio system, connected directly to the DAC for bit-precise performance. This output delivers a fixed, full-level signal with no volume control, as is essential for an audio system where you need to ensure maximum signal to noise ratio and maximum use of digital resolution right through to the audio system's own volume control, which controls the level for all sources in the system. Whether playing back as mp3 file or a high-resolution lossless file, Explorer2 will make any content sound its best, delivering a level of audio quality essentially limited only by the source material. Explorer2 connects to virtually any computer with a USB port. Drivers are provided for Windows. Macintosh and Linux operating systems allow simple plug-in and play operation. Despite its powerful output and performance capability, Explorer2 is entirely USB-bus powered. It is supplied in elegant presentation packaging and includes a short USB cable (longer cables may also be used) and a soft carrying pouch that stores both Explorer2 and cable.
