Usb 24 192khz M2tech Hiface

post #1 of 1947
Thread Starter 
M2Tech
Another fun toy after the monitor musiland. 01 us.
It was sold in the hifi show in Milan at a price of 99 euros

It'd be really interesting to see a picture of the unit opened up...
Anyone tried it, btw?

A very interesting device.
I also had the opportunity to hear a demo (with state-of-the-art system) in Milan at the hifi show, and I spoken with the designer.
"Inside the case" there is a micro, a two quartz precision oscillators clock ref, and a s/pdif interface.
The "devil" is in the proprietary driver, it's able to release from USB clock and to use USB-2.
Yes, it's really 24/192
No more PCM 270*, no Tas1020, no more ASIO drivers.

And driving it is a very easy task for a PC, so that even a Intel Atom is enough.
And yes, the sound is really OK.
I think that soon we will get wind of it.

And no, the designer is not my cousin

Ciao!

I have just bought the M2tech hiface converter this morning through contacting them by e-mail

From what I understood, they have an exclusive distributor only in Italy. For all other countries, you can contact them by mail to order the unit.

You already know we are all waiting for a comparison to your Musiland...
post #13 of 1947
This thing is extremely interesting. I also got the price for the device through e-mail. I also got a link to some Italian forum where they have discussed more about the product. There should be some impressions about the little gadget.

Videohifi Forum

Now where are all our Italian Head-Fi'ers. Some translation maybe?

Looks interesting but with little information available I don't see anything that can make it better than Musiland variants. Anyone have pics of internals and/or more details on how it works?
post #15 of 1947
I want one now! what is 99 euros to USD?


says it bypasses a clock to reduce jitter even more, and NO CABLE helps with variations.
