M2Tech EVO MK1 full stack USB to SPDIF convertor
Complete high end USB to SPDIF system to get the absolute best out of your PC / Mac USB audio. This is the 230-240V version.
It is compatible with Asyncronious mode (Core Audio) on a PC or Mac and plays in Direct mode for optimum sound quality.
The M2Tech EVO regularly comes out on top as the best USB - SPDIF convertor alongside the OffRamp 5 and Berkeley Alpha. I have heard the OffRamp 5 and the EVO is on par, possibly slightly more transparent.

So I am thus selling at under 40% original price which I think is very fair and allows someone to obtain superb computer audio without a huge outlay.
The units are mechanically perfect with slight marks to the case work (not obvious).

I have also added extra ventilation holes to the Linear Power Supply to aid cooling. (It only gets warm, not hot).
The USB input board in most DACs is a compromise and often designed to a budget / compromise. USB power (5V feed) is also sent down the USB lead to power many internal boards adding noise and distortion. Bypassing the USB input on your DAC and using the better SPDIF input (RCA or BNC) is the better option for maximum sound quality. If you have an older DAC with no USB input, then this is also the perfect solution to hook up your PC or Mac to your DAC via the SPDIF input. Realise the full potential of your DAC!
The M2Tech EVO full stack beats any CDP I have tried, with better dynamics and wider soundstage without sounding digital. The M2Tech EVO MK2 has had cosmetic changes, but the mechanics are identical and the sound is unchanged between the units. The MK2 has also seen a big price increase compared to the MK1 i.e a complete MK2 system would be £530 + £530 + £360 = £1420
This is for use between a PC or Mac USB output to your DAC, i.e. you need a DAC as well.
Any questions, just ask.
