The Metrum Musette is a rare thing - a non-upsampling (NOS) DAC. It will play your music with a striking degree of realism akin to a live performance !

In order to improve upon the legendary Octave, Metrum stopped looking towards its secret industrial chip, and instead implemented their new Transient technology as used in the flagship Pavane. The Musette is designed on  the same basic frame as used for the Octave  but to get more flexibility, both  front and back panel have been changed and one more digital input is added. Like her predecessor, the Musette is available in both silver and black.

The Musette uses two Transient R2R ladder Dac One modules as used in the Pavane. These modules can handle extreme high sampling rates but are limited to current industry standards which has its maximum (384kHz) on the USB input. The result of this process is an extremely fast and accurate behaviour which further improves the listening experience.  Despite the fact that both DAC modules are build on the same board, an extremely high channel separation of 100 dB is realized. This contributes to flawless positioning of instruments.
