Award winning consumer electronics manufacturer M2Tech of Italy manufacturers products for computer audio, LP/analog playback, both D/A and A/D conversion, clocking, ultra-low noise power supply (VDGMK2/EVO Supply), and the new Young MK3 MQA DSD256 DAC/Pre-amp. The Young MK3 is compatible with the new A1 stereo amplifier (Bridgeable and rated at 60 wrms at 8 ohms stereo and 110 wrms at 4 ohms. When bridged the N1 outputs 180 wrms at 8 ohms). Also compatible are the VDGMK2 ultra low noise power supply and the Joplin MK2 A/D mm/mc phono-stage with DA conversion (DSD256) and clock input, all in one device. The new N1 phono-stage completes the system as a dedicated preamplifier and phono equalizer for every cartridge model. It is provided with two phono inputs, one for low-level MC cartridges and one for medium-high level MC cartridges and MM cartridges. Two auxiliary line-level inputs make the N1 a hub or switching box for analog sources, an interesting add-on when the N1 is used together with the Young MkIII MQA, to fully exploit the latter’s only analog input. A Young MkIII MQA-N1-A1 based system may have a total of four analog sources: two phono and two line-level. This is known as the new "Rockstar" series. The EVO2 series includes master/word clock, EVO 2 phono-stage/pre-amp with ADC and DAC plus word clock input and system remote (All in one small device). EVO 2 series also adds EVO DAC 2 and DAC 2 Plus, both capable of system remote and processing for PCM/DXD and DSD256. Additionally, the line includes 2 low noise power supplies and USB to S/PDIF signal converters. M2Tech helped pioneer high resolution PC audio with the innovative "Young DAC" and "HIFACE DAC", two of the industry's first PCM/DXD USB output devices bridging PC digital audio to analog outputs. M2Tech continues to evolve for 2018/2019. For photos and more detail by product family please visit: https://lnx.m2tech.biz/ .

Young DSD

Young DSD is a highly advanced PCM and DSD DAC/Audio System Pre‐Amp. The Young DSD is capable of DSD/64 native and DSD/128 native, both supporting DoP. PCM/DXD is supported at 352.8/24, 352.8/32, 384/24, 384/32 and at all other common PCM data rates. The unit supports balanced output and RCA SE output; USB, RCA, BNC, AES/EBU and Toslink inputs. Selectable features include analog volume control, balance, mute and phase control. The system remote control works for the Young DSD and USB attached players. To use the DAC as a pre‐amp, maximum voltage out is selectable at 5Vrms up to 10Vrms. Future firmware updates are possible through the Young’s USB input.

Marley - “Class A” headphone amplifier and pre‐amp

Marley is a new “Class A” headphone amplifier and system pre‐amp, allowing the use of dual headsets both independently and simultaneously. Balanced headphone operation, dual line input, pre‐out and line‐out, allow for multiple and diverse system configurations. M2Tech has raised the bar for balanced circuit topology by improving the design and operation of balanced headphone amplifiers, using four completely separate Class A amplifiers for all four paths of the audio signal (right normal, right inverted, left normal, left inverted). The benefit of such a design is that each amplifier only drives half of the coil, and doubles the effective slew rate. This allows both amplifiers (2 per channel), to operate in opposite phase increasing the dynamic range and realism of the audio signal.

Joplin A/D Converter with Mk2

The M2tech JoplinMk2's includes an updated FPGA (field programmable gate array) input chip, improved signal to noise ratio and lower total harmonic distortion and other electronic improvements that can be accessed on the company's website. Joplin-Mk2 information.
