Audiolab is set to add two new components to its compact LAB Series: the Q-DAC, a new D/A converter based on the 2886_Q-DAC_and_M-PWR_(silver)M-DAC but set at a lower price point, and the M-PWR matching power amplifier.

Like the M-DAC, the new Q-DAC serves not only as a DAC but also as a digital preamp and headphone amp, too. The ESS Saber32 D/A converter chip (9016), a 32-bit processor is used and the Q-DAC has a SRP of just £399.95. It has coaxial, optical and USB inputs and RCA outputs (The M-DAC had balanced XLR outputs)

The M-PWR is a compact stereo power amp designed to be partnered with either the Q-DAC, or the M-DAC which can be used to control the volume.

The M-PWR incorporates both single-ended RCA and balanced XLR inputs, and supplies 40W per channel into eight ohms.
