The M2Tech Evo DAC 192kHz Digital-To-Analog Converter is a digital-to-analog converter capable of 192 kHz/32 bits operation when driven on its I2S input. 192kHz/24 bits operation is available on its coaxial S/PDIF input, while 96kHz/24bits can be achieved when using the legacy Toslink input, included for compatibility towards many digital sources.
The best way to operate Evo DAC is in partnership with the hiFace Evo to play hi-rez files from a computer. By connecting the two units in I2S with a CAT-5 straight cable, a virtually zero-jitter chain is implemented, from the computer to the DAC, for unbelievable sonic results by such an affordable solution.
Evo DAC is a great unit even when used as a normal DAC by driving it on its S/PDIF input: the receiver's great performance in reducing the jitter leads to sonic results which are unexpected by equipment. Polypropylene capacitors and a low noise, low distortion op-amp on the output buffer exalt the performance of the conversion IC. A modular system, based on an Evo DAC, an hiFace Evo and an Evo Supply, eventually built during time, makes for a nearly hi-end digital source.
