M2Tech's Greatest DAC Yet

M2Tech's Vaughan DAC utilizes four Burr Brown 32 bit DACs per channel, delivering up to 384kHz/32bit resolution from your PC or MAC. Vaughan's clocking circuits ensure extreme accuracy, while the new jitter reduction systems keep your sound pure and crisp. The Vaughan's volume control allows the unit to act as a preamp and drive amplifiers directly, or a headphone amplifier for private listening.

The Vaughan has 12 digital inputs  for an incredible array of source options. The USB input can stream high resolution files up to 384 kHz at 32 bit word lengths. The Vaughan is also equipped with a word clock input for an external clock control source. There are balanced as well as unbalanced analog outputs and a 1/4" stereo headphone output.

The Vaughan is powered by a built-in Lithium Polymer (Li Po) battery power supply that can drive the DAC for 4 hours without needing a charge. Like the PALMER power station, the battery supply comes with it's own internal, low noise charging system that can charge while the unit is in operation or while it is turned off.
