Hi As below in quotes from emails sent to Marco at M2Tech I have recently purchased a PC with Windows 7 64-bit to replace my aging Mac Mini G4 with OSX10.5 and HP Pavillion laptop with Windows XP, both of which worked fine with my best-yet sounding USB-SPDIF converter, an original Hiface with AQV.

Aqua La Voce S3 Discrete arrival. Will try to have some battery tests on Tuesday when i’ll get back. Vertical sounds, for example in test tracks with a single instrument changing heights, you can clearly hear the height of the instrument.

Post 6 of Amazing because of it’s diminutive size, the fact that dzc is powered from the computer, and its low price. In the end it will be worth it.

Use kHz sampled stuff, and you get 5HzkHz. It feels like a cheap 88x14x20 mm orange USB stick with a thin plastic housing. There were only three times it stopped working.

I have tested it and it appears to work – even after a reboot. The sound is detailed, with more highs than lows but at the same time not fatiguing. Post 15 of Thanks for posting those review links.

Post 13 of By this I mean you can hear how far an instrument or performer is away from you. After that it just works, but only stereo. The bass is just enough for me, I do not like a lot of bass, and here you hear it when you are supposed to hear it, so it does not overpower anything. Using the hiFace DAC is thankfully quite straight forward.

This isn’t a dig at Jason or hi fi class warfare, but him so enjoying a ‘small budget’ sac put a huge smile on my face. Welcome and Good-Bye Submitted by anomaly7 on August 1, – 9: This fix appears to solve the problem on a permanent basis, ie, you do not need to do it each time that you restart the computer.

hiFace DAC by M2Tech Audio

Thanks to all who have welcomed me, either in postings or in thought. But for my use not an issue.

A comparison review of two DACs. Submitted by JayPee on July 31, – 4: I was looking at this before and after reading those I am very interested. It took no more than starting up the PC, going to sound preferences, selecting the DAC, and then playing music. In fact, the two sound very close in performance which meant that once again, I was nailed to my listening seat for much longer than I intended.

Post 10 of If you already have a computer audio set up, and want an upgrade where you can really hear the improvement, but don’t want to break the bank, the hiFace DAC is probably exactly what you are looking for.

By this I mean when someone starts singing, it is the main portion of the sound and the instruments get less noticeable. I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting from the hiFace but the iDAC had set the bar so high, I wasn’t really prepared for something that would also make me say “WOW”.

There’s little to add about the sound of this DAC because it simply does everything so well.

Only 8.8 cm long and 2 cm wide, the M2Tech hiFace 32/384 is one of the smallest USB dacs on the market, and quite possibly the smallest available 32/384 dac (new dacs emerging daily, hard to confirm the ranking status). The digi-miniature weighs only 20 grams.

A couple of years ago, the Italian M2Tech introduced a memory stick kind of thing called hiFace S/PDIF Output Interface. It took in 192kHz/24bit data stream from the pc’s or mac’s usb port and then outputted low jitter S/PDIF digital signal for the DA converter.

Think of hiFace 384/32 DAC as the hiFace Interface with the addition of 384/32 dac.

Despite its size the manufacturer has somehow managed to accommodate a low jitter XMOS XS1-L1 USB Audio 2.0 interface with two precision oscillators and Texas Instruments PCM 5102A DAC chip with the necessary peripheral parts and components.

The 384/32 DAC can handle sampling frequencies from 44.1 kHz to 384 kHz, and 16-32 bits of resolution, but only for PCM, not DSD. The output voltage, 2.0Vrms, is kind of normal. THD+N is said to be 112dB (@ 1kHz, A-weighted). The tiny object is powered via its usb port. Regulators are of M2TECH design.

Mac/i-device or Linux users do not need separate drivers: it will appear right away on the list of usable devices, and is ready to play. So too with my Mac mini. Friends of Windows do need drivers. Only ASIO supports 32/384 resolution.

For the analogue signal (eg. mid to high impedance headphones) there’s a 3,5mm output. For the amplifier one needs 3.5/RCA adapter cable, not included in the package. Don’t think of purchasing a rigid thick cable. Such will pull out the dac easily and raising the laptop with extra feet may become necessary.

Soundwise

In my brief comparison, the hiFace 384/32 DAC did well (CD/WAV) against my MAC mini’s headphone output as well as against a cheaper table DAC. In particular, I felt it “sounded” less impure, a little more transparent, and a little more coherent, if these properties can be predicated of a memory stick in the first place.

I always feel a bit uneasy when I’m expected to tell how a digital source, whether a cd-player or dac, sounds. To put it kindly, I feel they all sound quite good already, in principle. Sufficiently good, not necessarily warranting poetic sonic descriptions. Having said that, I thought that if cd-players/dacs can be classified into two categories: “bright and resolute” sounding and “round and sympathetic” sounding, I’d put hiFace 384/32 DAC under the latter without any ulterior motive of a sonic compromise.

The true value added of this dac comes from the possibility of playing HD music files, and that especially from mobile sources. It is in this environment in which the hiFace 384/32 is at its best and shows its strengths. I just briefly tried it (192/24 files) but again, I feel that what device makes possible is more important than the exact nature of the sound.

M2TECH’s hiFace 384/32 DAC is a perfect addition to the selection of audio gear for the man who already has a high quality DAC in his stationary hi-fi system but wants to listen to HD music also on the road.
