Review: Jkeny’s modified Hiface - Page 29
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Now I'm searching converter which gives analog natural sound.
I have never used AP2. I only have JK MK3 and I like the sound a lot.
Usually people think AP2's and MK3's performances are quite close to each other. Some prefer AP2 and some MK3. Actually I am surprised you don't like your AP2. Maybe users of AP2 should have their say...
I suspect John might be on holiday now and he has a note "Order taking will resume by end of January" on his website: https://sites.google.com/site/hifacemods/home-1/mk3-hiface
Reviews/comparison of MK3 you''ll find here:

Thank you, Korzena. I have seen all these links.
Just most likely I'm not will do a trying again. I want to buy it and forgot about that.
But though I can wait for the end of month and see what would be.

I recieved recently a second hand JKSPDIF MK2, and there is a question that I have regarding the battery. When the device is disconnected from the charger, I can turn it on (the blue light turns on), but the computer does not recognize the JKSPDIF unless it is connected to the charger. So, somehow the battery is working (because the light is able to turn on when disconnected), but it is not able to operate without external power supply.
Is it normal for the MK2? I have already try to let it off and attached to the charger for several hours (about 4) and it does not change its behaviour.
Many thanks in advance for your help,
My question: for the best sound quality - is it better to connect to Hiface Mk3 through ASIO or Hiface drivers (m2tech or young driver) ?
My system: PC laptop (Windows 8.1 with J.River Media Center 19) --> Hiface Mk3 --> Schiit Bifrost --> Schiit Lyr
