Marco Manunta -M2Tech- expressing himself more than ever …


m2tech logoMarco writes us about a new, a very new thing. He thinks it’s a new crisis burner. Well, that’s a good thing! For him, for us, for everybody interested. Let’s listen to him!

“These are hard times: now more than ever, hifi lovers need to carefully manage their budget and it seems it’s no more time to spend money for other than the sheer sound quality. Thanks God, technology comes to help and what was once only obtainable with complex and costly circuitry and components is now at hand with far less financially effort.”

“Personally, when I design a product together with my team, I have a target performance in mind, but I must admit that this time the final result of our team effort is far beyond what we expected.”

“In our reference system, based on Jeff Rowland electronics and Audio Manufacture speakers, the sound was amazing, competing in overall soundstage, dynamic and frequency response smoothness with those of the Young DAC.”

“Also in my home system (a vintage setup with a touch of modernity), I couldn’t believe to what I was listening to. Of course, the sound of the hiFace DAC has some limits, but not those you would expect from such a tiny, affordable thing.”

an iPad or a tablet in a secondary system, or in a portable setup. But for sure, it’s also the choice for budget-conscious systems based on high performance integrated amps like NAD, Rotel and the likes, and precise, revealing monitors. Take a laptop, a Mac mini, or a small Linux computer, add the hiFace DAC and you’ll have a low-cost, high-performance music file source.”

“The hiFace DAC doesn’t do anything: it has no digital output nor dedicated headphones driver. Our aim was to design a unit capable to do only one thing, and to do it very well. The hiFace DAC has one line level stereo output to drive the input of an amplifier. But atually, it can drive medium- or high-impedance headphones, too, but this is not its main task. Of course, I’m not the right person to express an evaluation of a product I designed and sell, but I’m feeling so enthusiast about it that I needed to share my feeling with you, my dear readers!”

“Ah, and forgot to tell you: it will be available in early April, the model shown is a hand-painted prototype. Stay tuned!”
