Review of the MD 806T Internet Radio Tuner - from Soundstage! HI-FI
I listened to several musical genres, but my critical listening was primarily with classical music and jazz. Throughout the review period, the MD 806T performed flawlessly; I never experienced any interruptions in the streaming.
Low-level details were not obscured, and the music had a vibrancy that was an absolute pleasure to hear. The MD 806T had a much warmer tone than the Transporter, but not in a syrupy or gauzy manner. Instead, what I noticed was that the musicís tonality, color, and texture were more palpably realistic than through the Transporter. Most notably, acoustic and electric basses sounded more tactile. Reverb was more noticeable, and the sense of space between instruments and on the soundstage was more apparent. The MD 806Tís sound was more three-dimensional, particularly in terms of soundstage depth.

Multiple Audio Sources: Access to over 20,000 Internet Radio
stations and podcasts via on board WiFi antenna or LAN. Access to terrestrial FM,
DAB/DAB+ (where available), and locally connected music collections in a
variety of formats (including AACs, Real, MP3s, FLAC and WMA).
Intuitive & Simple Software: Internet radio stations are neatly
organized and searchable by various categories (including country of
origin, most popular, favorites). Touch screen displays easy-to-read
information on current track's metadata, genre, bit rate, codec and
sampling rate. Personal audio collections (attached via local network or
USB flash stick/hard drive) are easy to navigate via artist name, album
name or genre. When connected, the software automatically connects to
the host for the latest firmware updates.
Simple Functionality: With a 3/8" faceplate, a stately 3.5" color
touch screen on the faceplate, and a solid steel chassis, the MD 806 is
a direct cosmetic match with the slightly beefier MD 807 - a simple and
refined piece of audio gear. The functional remote is also upgradeable
to our metal encased touch screen remote (standard on the MD 809), and
operation is equally easy whether standing beside the unit or from a
Audio Output Stage: Sharing the same circuit topology that is
found in our MD 100T FM tuner, this audio stage is more characteristic
of products at much higher price points. At the centerpiece of this
design are 2 MD reference 6922 vacuum tubes in the output stage,
delivering 100% of the gain in this full triode unit. The low impedance
output helps eliminate the sensitivity to the type of interconnect
cables used, and helps to create the trademark sound that Magnum Dynalab
products are known for.
World Leading Components: Wima capacitors, Kimber Hyperpure
wiring throughout the unit, gold-plated tube sockets, upgraded
connectors and other components from world-recognized suppliers are all
a testament to the overall build quality of the MD 806 - ensuring long
life and listening enjoyment for many years.
Power Supply & Ground Plane: Like all Magnum Dynalab products,
particular attention has been paid to the grounding plane. The same
unique grounding loop found in many of our top-end products is also
designed into the MD 806, and the result is a signal free of impurities
that originate with the ground plane. A custom toroidal power supply
ensures all voltages are kept within our exacting specifications,
leaving an unimpeded original signal to flow through the unit's
Flexible Outputs: With RCA and balanced analog outputs, the MD 806 will seamlessly integrate into
any home audio system. The unit also comes equipped with optical and RCA
digital outputs, for use with an external DAC.
