I apologize. I have reverted back to the Luckit driver after listening to the M2Tech driver for most of last evening. On my system, ultimately, I found it too bright and fatiguing for lengthy listening sessions. 

Your too late....or I'm too quick. I changed it while I was reading your post. I hear exactly the same thing you did in this new driver. I am listening to it now. It is brighter and thinner sounding. Some would say it has more apparent detail but that is a function of elevated highs. It gives the impression of being more transparent but I think it is just brighter. I cannot understand how the same company can put out so two totally different sounding drivers. Is it possible that the software company is letting their oem tune the sound as they wish? Are Italians into bright sound? Many questions. I will go back to the Luckit driver when I regain my strength. I think Luckit is a clear winner. I can take off the bib.

The new M2Tech driver is more transparent in the upper mids as well extend more in the treble area, I guess you can call it bright sound. The Luckit is more sweet for long sessions...

Interesting, I've been going back and forth between two and almost positive 1.61 adds more weight but the difference is really subtle so it could be just my imagination.

Too bad you can't do proper A/B and should rely on short lived audio memory.

I think there is also the issue of synergy with your equipment. In my case with my front end the Luckit driver is a very clear winner. The new driver from M2Tech is clearly brighter with less weight in the bass. I suppose if your equipment was a bit dark sounding the M2Tech driver might be just the thing. On my system with a Yulong D18 and Lafigaro tube amp and my T1 the Luckit driver is magic.

The Luckit driver works on win 8. Just read post 288.

IMHO it's worth to install the Luckit driver, personally i like it clearly better than the new (and old) M2Tech driver.

Hey, sorry about that. Found it. I thought I had read everything in this thread before, but looks like I skipped some.

Belkin makes a simple cheap 4 port powered usb hub that uses a simple a/c adapter. I use it and it is better than taking the power from the computer usb port. There are even better solutions for linear power supplies in this thread but the Belkin thing took it far enough for me.

I bought a Dlink Powered USB hub for the same reasons and it wound up using the USB bus unless it was unplugged from the computer and entered "charging" mode for phones and such.  Make sure to read the packaging.

I must have missed that, can you please point them out?

Yes the Belkin thing actually supplies the power to the  hub so it bypasses the power supplied by the computer port. It is a very cheap solution but not as elegant as some suggested in this thread that resort to battery power. I have no doubt that battery power is the cleanest source but I have my limits on tweeks.

Just read the posts by Audiofanboy he seems to be the resident expert on power supply tweeks for Hiface 2.
