Product Description

Highest quality digital audio up to 192kHz/24bit S/PDIF audio format available from your PC, MAC or Linux computer. Very low jitter oscillators, asynchronous transfer on USB. Compact size (2x2.2x10.2cm) with hi-end performances hiFace Two USB interface has been conceived to further improve the performance and ease of use of the acclaimed and award-winning hiFace. hiFace Two input format is a data stream signal with sampling frequency/resolution up to 192kHz/24bits, compliant to USB Audio 2.0 specificastions, available from a PC, MAC or Linux computer USB port. A very high quality S/PDIF stereo audio output signal is available from hiFace for your Hi-Fi system DAC (Digital to Analog Converter). HiFace looks like a small USB pendrive, featuring a very compact size. Internal very low jitter oscillators allow for playing 192kHz/24bits audio files that feature the best signal quality. hiFace Two is even easier to use than the hiFace. No drivers are necessary with either Mac and Linux computers, while a single standard driver is required for Windows computers. While the old hiFace offered Direct Sound, Kernel Streaming and WASAPI transfer modes, hiFace Two adds ASIO mode to enable interfacing to pro players and software tools. hiFace improves the audio performance over the hiFace by a new output circuit compliant with S/PDIF levels, linear regulators in place of switching ones and a clickless operation even when skipping tracks.

I have bought MANY USB to SPDIF converters over the years. Creative, EMU, TASCAM etc.

One of my favorites is a TASCAM us144mkii, but it has a problem with chewing up CPU because it's basically ALWAYS streaming even if no sound is coming out. It Streams 0's.

So I tried this more modern XMOS based device hoping it would fix it, and it DOES.

It actually has an option to be Always On (always streaming) or Power Save (which shuts streaming off when no sound is produced).

I suspect some folks that have issues with this unit is because it defaults to this mode. And it can cause a click in the Audio When it Turns on or off. If you have that issue you can force it always on. Which won't have any clicks or pops.

Since I use this on a Laptop and Always have it connected but not always doing sound I want it to shutdown automatically (even if I get a click). That's fine. You have choice. But most devices you do not get this choice.

Some devices receiving the stream may not like one more or the other, so Try both.

ASIO works perfect with Reason 6.5

I can also Mix ASIO playback with other Audio Devices. So for example I can play a CD with a Player and use a MIDI KeyBoard to play along with, with low latency (AT THE SAME TIME). Some devices don't allow this (e.g. ASIO4ALL).

I'm using it on Windows 8 x64

If you need other functions besides SPDIF out, I still highly recommend TASCAM us-144mkii for the price.

This is the second purchase of the same device. I've ordered this right after the first order has arrived and I was taken aback by the ultimate quality of the sound. I have a very good DAC, tube amplifier, and I use Yamaha DVD-S2500 as a transport (and it is very good as a transport, surpassing many that are far more expensive). M2Tech HiffaceTwo was indistinguishable from the Yamaha. It provided a very reach musical experience with very fine details without loosing any of the emotional components of the music. So I can finally get rid of CD and DVD as a media and transfer all my music to the hard drive without compromising the listening experience.

Upfront, there have been reviews on the audiophile forums, look there if you want to read more detail. This device is for audiophiles who want to get high definition audio out of their computer to a SPDIF digital input of a sound system. In particular if you use a laptop, you cannot plug in a sound card, so this external device does it using USB port. I am using it as interface to my Nuforce HDP which enables me to listen to sample rates up to 192kHz (the USB supports max 96kHz). Also, this little device has its own clock making it less dependent on the computer busyness. Overall, I do hear a slight sound stage improvement at 96kHz compared to direct USB connection to my HDP.

Pros:
* All supported sample rates up to 192kHz incl older ones like 176.4kHz (which my HDP does not support with USB)
* Much less drop outs and latency problems
* Better sound stage
* Very small device

Cons:
* Still occasional drop outs even at 96kHz despite async USB

Got this to use with my Schiit Bifrost with the coax connection. Instalation was simple and ran without problems. Using ASIO4ALL - J River MC18 - Schiit Bifrost - LD MkIV SE. I'm getting 192/24 without problem. Sound is just excellent. Highly recommended for DAC's without 192/24 USB.
