M2TECH Young MkIII DAC/Preamplifier

Regular price $1,699.00


The new Young MkIII DAC/preamplifier retains the basic hardware structure of the award winning Young DSD, with a Xilinx FPGA handling input signals, feeding the PCM1795 DAC IC as well as the proprietary output buffer, with passive anti‐alias filter and servos to remove the I/V offset, directly driving the CS3318 volume control/buffer.

A new XMOS USB interface implements full MQA decoding while native DSD is now accepted up to 256x.
The input set includes a Bluetooth receiver with aptX and a single‐ended analog input. An output voltage doubler allows the Young MkIII to deliver up to 10Vrms balanced and 5Vrms(single ended). The human interface has been improved with a new high‐contrast OLED display and new IR system remote control. The unit can also be controlled via Bluetooth thanks to our new Android application. AC to DC power reduces the noise floor. Optional ultra‐low noise power supplies are also available from M2Tech and Sbooster. M2Tech audio products are 100% designed, engineered and manufactured in Italy.
