Yes I did A/B both versions, and yes in stock form the small clock sounds worse than a $50 soundcard at RBCD (44.1khz), at 48khz I didn't detect much difference but all I have is a Led Zepplin DVD rip in 48khz. When I put the battery on it was the version with the correct clock, I didn't bring it up again because I was being blown off by shills and cool aide drinkers.
I would have liked to shove the bad version straight up Marco's A$$ but it wasn't worth the plane ticket. My condolences
to the brilliant engineers at M2Tech who designed the Hiface only to have it ruined by bean counters like Marco who is just a spokesman puppet put up to look like he is their technical guru.
M2Tech owes the folks with the bad units a full refund and an apology for their wasted time.
Jeesus, Regal, calm down, Dan was only asking a sensible question as was I. He's no shill & does know about digital - I don't know why you are attacking him?
So, you say that you put the battery on a different Hiface unit to the one that you took pictures of - OK! We are all trying to get to the bottom of this in a calm rational way.
A logical approach is the best way to tease out what's going on. I too would have imagined that there would be as noticeable a difference between 44.1KHz & 48KHz on the "bad" hiface as between the "bad" Hiface & the "good" Hiface at 44.1KHz. It's simply a logical assumption. Are you saying that the 44.1KHz was worse than from a cheap sound card but the 48KHz was about the same a s cheap soundcard?
Others might like to do this test?
Yes, I'm a MOT before anyone points this out & I do have an interest in this but I'm also trying to be fair & even-handed about this & trying not to jump to conclusions - there's more testing to be done, I think.
