M2Tech is an award winning consumer electronics manufacturer enabling computer audio playback, both digital to analog and analog to digital conversion, advanced "Dual-drive" Class A headphone amplification, phono-stage amplification, system pre-amplification, low noise power supplies and USB to S/PDIF signal conversion. M2Tech pioneered high resolution PC audio playback with the innovative "Young DAC," and the "HiFace DAC," the industry's first PCM 32bit/384kHz, SPDIF-Optical-USB to stereo line output audio devices. M2Tech continues to evolve with the Young DSD, the Marley and the Mercury, as well as the Joplin A/D Converter, now with Mk2.
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 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.
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.
