I have been testing for a week the hiface two and had the chance to compare to hiface 1, EVO and Stello U3. Just finished translating the article, if you want to check.
this is a good piece of electronics as far as I have heard. it will most probably please poeple with common equipments, but I find it a little bit short for very good DACs.
I like it more than the Audiophilleo and the Evo sounds well, not all that great for the price. I'd have to have one side by side the Hiface 2, but I bet the differences are only minor rather than something truly worthy. What kind of hi-end USB converter should I be listening to and why do you say the dac should be good when my opinion is the system itself should be good? Thanks for any pointers on more reference based USB converters OR other sources that are superior to what you have mentioned. Thanks for the review. It is a very good one, very straight forward and to the point even if I disagree especially with the Evo.
