THe M2tech Young DSD is a very good balanced dac, with a fantastic pre section

Posted

Pros: -Very good sound quality - Excellent construction and design - Excellent USB input -

Cons: Only XLR output with rca adapter, Sibilance problem in a very brilliant setup

I always love try Italian products, especially when they have just come out and are entirely Made in Italy, This is the first review based on translation for new Young   DSD  DAC/Preamp combination product from Italian manufacturer M2TECH from my site, www.stereo-head.it .       The DAC under test is the successor to the previous Young from M2Tech and introduces substantial changes such as the functions of a preamplifier, DSD and DSD X2, (Both supporting DoP) a fully balanced design and a new analog output stage.   Along with the new DAC, M2Tech also presented a fully balanced headphone amplifier for our consideration called Marley (review...

The Gemini usb cable it's a very good cable that allow to separate the data line from the supply line and improve the dacs quality.

Pros: Add musicality and warm to your setup, The 3D HolographicSound® increase a lot the soundstage

  I would like to thank Vincent at iFi for sending me this sample for review,   I’m a fan of IFI products. I have loved their dac and usb power supply (here is my review) so i have decided to give a chance to the lastest product from the Micro line, the IFI iTube. But first, who is IFI? Ifi is a young English company with trickle-down technology licensed from AMR (AMR is a producer of Hi  End valve components). Recently they released their new Nano line dedicated to portable listening which  includes the battery supplied iDSD, a very interesting portable DSD dac, and the iCAN Nano, a portable  headphone amplifier.       The iTube it’s...
