Hello All, My first post here so firstly want to say thanks to all the members as I have learnt alot from you all. I am a novice in the area of computer audio so have spent some time going through the DAC and Disk Storage sections and find that my situation sits somewhere in between. I currently have a Synology 214Play NAS that I use to store my music which is connected directly via usb to my M51 DAC. The NAS come with a very good audio app that I use to play music directly without the addition of a computer. After reading many threads I find the general concensus is that a good USB to spdif converter will help to improve the sound of my current setup over direct usb. I have limit choices from where I am and want to have compatibility with my NAS. This narrows me down to the M2Tech HiFace EVO. Thanks to Elberoth for your review. My choice for the Evo is a combination of availability and compatibility. Finally to my questions as I have not found much discussion relating to this. How is the EVO's performance partnered with the accompanying Evo Supply in comparison to the power supply from Teddy Pardo? Are they the same thing or would Evo's own supply provide the better sound? Lastly as my DAC can automatically switch between my 44.1k and higher quality files, will adding the EVO between the NAS and DAC still provide the automatic detection? Thanks in advance for any advice or any alternatives. Andrew
