London’s headroom show (Jan 29/30th) is to launch the new Audiolab M-DAC+ and Quad VA-One amplifier!VA-One (3)-horz low

Audiolab’s highly anticipated M-DAC+ (£799.95) enhances the performance of the original M-DAC to include 32-bit/384kHz resolution for the USB input. The M-DAC+ can also link directly to Apple devices to access stored music via USB-A. DSD audio is also catered for with the M-DAC+ offering four different DSD and seven different PCM filters. Further features include redefined circuitry, with a new internal power supply.

The new VA-One integrated amplifier from Quad (£1,399.95) follows founder Peter Walker’s approach to sound quality, using carefully selected hi-fi amplifier valves to drive life-like excitement into music. It includes both analogue and digital inputs, with RCA, optical and coaxial options, plus a 6.3mm headphone jack output on the front panel. Its USB-B and Bluetooth inputs (aptX) enable simple connectivity to PCs, tablets and smartphones.
