M2Tech's hiFace E-Young
Digital by M2Tech
384/32 D/A converter
High-speed asynchronous USB connection Oversampling filters with minimum pre-echo and phase linearity S/PDIF, AES/EBU, Toslink digital inputs Line level single-ended on RCA output connectors Encased in a stylish aluminium case.
Young is a high performance, very high value-for-money D/A converter capable of handling up to 384kHz sampling rate and 32 bits resolution (USB input). It features a high speed asynchronous USB input based on the hiFace technology, further developped to allow for higher sampling rates. A comprehensive input set (S/PDIF on RCA and BNC, AES/EBU on XLR and optical on Toslink) provide great connection versatility. Despite its price, Young encopasses a leading edge technology for data handling and processing. A high performance oversampling filter, custom-made on a programmable logic device (FPGA) implements minimum-phase filters optimized for sound quality which allow for a very low noise floor. A 32 bits -D/A integrated circuit is used in a non-conventional mode to allow for 768kHz internal operation. The synergy between the DAC IC and the custoim oversampler allows for exceptionally low noise floor and THD. The output buffer uses a special operational amplifier with very low noise and THD thanks to its class-A biased output stage. The small size and stylish look of the Young allow for a uninvasive placement in every living space.
