Yes Indeed, I can attest I did not detect any difference in volume playback with both Hifaces compared to my SONY CDP used as transport, or native USB, not even optical out from the Macbook. But maybe the USG's DAC is more sensitive to the higher spec output of the Hiface SPDIF line than the Lavry DA11 is... I really don't know. I also could hear a very noticeable improvement with the Lavry going from native USB to the Hiface, although it is an upsampling DACs. This is why I suggested USG and others to stop mentionning those claims in this thread, as I feel they are not founded and out of place.
Back to the clocks, I am just saying that when contacted in June, Marco never denied the differences in sound I was hearing, not even a single time, even though he told me that theorically, the new small clcok was supposed to have better specs. I did not have to argue anything with him, and he stated that they were going to find the best way to handle this possible situation.
Com'on, I am no sales guy, but I work frequently close to them, and I perfectly understand why they would not attempt to do anything untill the claims really hit them. No need to remove things when it is quiet. A very straight forward sales learning.
But I agree, with shuold leave the issues that USG is mentioning for the time beeing and go back to the main topic, realted to clocks in the Hiface. I would be very interested to know if anyone else did return their units and how it was handled.

So you also agree that there is no "recall" from M2tech & yet you allow USG claim that M2tech are somehow culpable as they did a recall? Your use of terms is revealing "he did not deny anything" - what this means is that he agreed they had changed the clocks & not that the clocks were inferior in any way. A bit more care in your wording please! Why do you think that Marco decided not to do a recall? Was it that he considered that there was nothing to be addressed, perhaps?
USG has all these statements that he is trying to pass off as objective facts about the shortcomings of the Hiface & yet he produce nothing to support them & he refuses to listen to all the people who are telling him otherwise.
Yes, let the customers decide by presenting both sides of a case & not a one-sided diatribe of unsupported statements! This attempt at stoking up doubt & dissatisfaction in a product is not an honourable venture & I for one, don't like it.
What you say about me (MOT references again, I presume) - yes I should allow this slatting of the stock Hiface to persist because my modified units cure all this so more sales for me! Why do you think I'm doing this as it's patently not in my commercial interests?
