Stereophile reports: Elegant and modern in appearance, the M2Tech Young is a DC-powered D/A processor with a simple aluminum case, a recessed front panel, and a large alphanumeric display. It uses a Burr-Brown PCM1795 DAC chip with a custom oversampling minimum-phase filter.
It handles resolutions up to 32 bits via USB (24 bits via S/PDIF or AES/EBU), and sample rates up to 384kHz via USB (192kHz via S/PDIF or AES/EBU). While the Young lacked some accuracy and precision, it nevertheless managed an excellent balance of detail and warmth, said JI. The Palmer Power Station battery power supply, designed to match the Young, provides two 15V outputs. Adding the Palmer resulted in significantly more focus and clarity. “The M2Tech combo seduced me,” JI concluded. Current version will decode DSD128.
