MSB Technology - you must hear it to believe it

MSB from its very beginning (1986), has specialised in decoding the digital audio signals. At present the company offers high-end audio equipment such as: DACs, CD/SACD/DVD transports and amplifiers.



MSB, was founded in 1986 by two engineers - Larry S. Gullman and Mark S. Brasfield, who first met in SRI (Menlo Park, Kalifornia), where they both worked. It was the time, when the audio market saw a slow beginning of a CD revolution. It was clearly known, that CD technology shall involve a great deal of work in order to become competitive with LPs as far as the sound was concerned. Gullman and Brasfield showed the DAC, as a part of equipment which needed the instant intervention, and founded the MSB company in order to cope with the problem. The letters MSB stand for „Most Significant Bit”, which is the bit position in a binary number having the greatest value. MSB are surprisingly enough, also Mark S. Brasfield's initials. MSB from its very beginning has specialised in decoding the digital audio signals and their first step was redesigning Philips CD player and its inside DAC. On the company's internet site one can find "a short MSB history" which shows their great potential:
