New M2 Tech 'EVO'


Recommended Posts

I'm going to test it as soon as possible. I already love my standard HiFace, this one must be a killer.

105x50x142mm (w x h x d, total)

120x60x165mm (w x h x d, box) (to be confirmed)

Weight: tbd

Sampling frequencies (kHz): 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192

Resolution (bits): 16 to 32

Inputs: USB 2.0, supply, master clock

Outputs: S/PDIF x2 (RCA & BNC), AES/EBU (XLR), optical Toslink, optical ST, I2S (RJ-45).

Has anyone heard one?

 

It would be very very interesting to compare it with the INT202

Hey Dave, I had the pleasure of meeting David Robinson some years ago. He was the Editor of Positive feedback and a major player in the Oregon Trioded society.

 

Is he still around?

David Robinson (along with his wife, Lila) and I (along with my wife, Carol) own and 'run' PFO as an LLC. which is a 'side' to what we do full-time. So yes he is still around though frequently preoccupied with other more pressing matters.

I have not heard the new MT device either... just passing on information.

"Master clock input voltage: 3.3V"

 

What exactly does this mean? That the EVO can be slaved to an external clock? If so, what kind of external clock? Examples of devices?

 

 

Thanks
