Hi-Fi World and Hi-Fi Choice awarded 5 stars/globes. The MCRU | Longdog Audio power supply is available as standard for £360, if you would like the up-graded version with an IsoTek mains lead and Furutech IEC inlet and fuse it is £495, BOTH VERSIONS HAVE BEEN REVIEWED AND AWARDED THE TOP ACCODLADE. Both versions will transform yur M-DAC into something far far better.

THE HIFI CHOICE REVIEW OF THE MDAC PSU IS HERE

The power supply is a plug and play design, it simply attaches to your M-DAC power input and has an IEC inlet on the rear to attach the supplied power cord.

Please note this power supply can be supplied in 120V or 240V to suit any country in the world and will be supplied as standard with the correct mains lead to suit your country, such as UK plug, Schuko plug, Australian or New Zealand plug and USA plug. 

The audiolab M-Dac is a game changing DAC, fully customisable using the built in filtering, award after award has been given with many UK audiophiles comparing it to DAC's costing £5,000 and over. Available with a series of up-grades to further enhance performance including better mains lead, fuse or IEC inlet. 

MCRU and Londog Audio have developed an external split rail fully regulated linear power supply to take the M-DAC to the next level. The M-DAC is used in our reference system and all the praise heaped upon it is totally justified. 

The power supply is designed and built in the UK by respected engineer and audiophile Nick Gorham who owns Londog Audio. Nick designes all the MCRU power supplies, many of which have been awarded recommended badges in the hifi press.

Styled to match the silver or black mdac casing, a power cable is supplied in the price to suit any country, UK, Europe, USA or Australian versions as well as 120V or 240V. We ship worldwide and many of our power supply's are already in use globally. Please note that all our power supplies are built to order so please allow some time for assembly and testing.

Here is the very first review from a satisfied customer:-

I plugged this in yesterday, after twenty seconds I came to the conclusion it's never going back!


Build quality is good. Nice solid case, four rubber feet. The main thing that used to concern me badly with the M-dac was the power connector, from the unit to the dac itself, flismy and unconvincing fit. I was never happy about it (could ruin the whole thing and I worried you can break it by looking at it too hard). This has been remedied by a much chunkier plug that fits convincingly now:Excuse the horrible quality photo, M-dac owners however will appreciate how much better this thing looks. It's a firm and convincing fit, a big weight off of my mind.

You might have read that I got some new isolation platforms not so long ago, they gave me a soundstage like I've never heard before. Adding this to the chain immediately improved this substantially!
All of a sudden my M-dac has control over the entire sound spectrum like never before.
Bass is deeper, but not overblown (drum and bass never sounded so damn good). It hits with such slam now! I didn't realise I was missing this until I heard the Lampizator a few days before, it hurt, losing that again... I feel happy to have it back and know it's going nowhere 
Vocals and mids are to die for, they've always been something I've loved about my system, I worry that it can be taken too far, in this case, clarity has improved without sounding clinical, everything is so musical!
The top end is clean. Some music I have has analogue flaws added to the sound. Hisses crackles and pops sound so natural and organic. Cymbals decay properly, with the most delicate shimmer I didn't know my system could deliver.
I've not got a bad thing to say about this upgrade, every aspect of the sound has improved dramatically. I've bought a bespoke granite platform for it and some RDC cones to ensure it's properly isolated. David provided a no.27 cable to test it with. Great build quality, that's not going back either.

Excellent upgrade to my M-DAC, all the usual Hi-Fi sonic attributes eg bigger soundstage, improved detail etc. But the most important thing is that I haven't stopped playing music since the PSU arrived:) Highly recommended - thank you David.

Dear Sir,

I have recently purchased the power supply upgrade for the Audiolab M-DAC. I would just like to complement you on providing an excellent product. On first using you immediately notice  that the sonic characteristics of the M-DAC are different. You actually are not sure if you like it! But after a hour of use you realise that the high frequencies have become more extended and the overall presentation of the music is greatly improved. I'm sure that many buyers are sceptical about purchasing a power unit that costs about 75% of the original price of the M-DAC itself.  However, if you are serious about getting the best out of the unit then the power supply upgrade represents a superb investment.

 Regards

Peter Willett

I have always sort to get the best possible sound quality from my hifi and have been fortunate to own some excellent hifi separates, including dacs made by Arcam, Chord, Naim and Audiolab.

Despite being a fan of the Audiolab Mdac I wasn’t overly impressed by its poor power cable. To get round this, I purchased an upgrade power supply and was reasonably happy. I then came across an article on-line about the MCRU Audiolab Power Linear Power Supply. I started to read more reviews on this product, and as they were always very positive, I thought I give one a try.

I couldn’t believe the difference in the sound quality, timing, clarity and the spaciousness of the music was all so much better. In fact, I was so impressed I bought two more as I own three Mdac’s. Although not cheap, the Mdac with the linear power supply is the best sounding dac I have ever heard. It really does turn the Mdac into a world class product.
