When it comes to high audio performance, the quality of the current that is supplied to a Hi-Fi equipment is of paramount importance. Noise in the supply current can be injected into the sound or coupled to critical circuitry, such as a DAC clock, causing less than optimal performance.
A low noise power supply is therefore imperative to squeeze the last drop of sound quality out of your DAC or amplifier. Of course, a low-noise design requires component quality, board space, and cost beyond what is acceptable in cost-effective designs.
This is why M2Tech offers the Van der Graaf MKII: users who have purchased the Young MkIV, Nash, Marley MkII or Tosh can later allocate some of their budget to increase the performance of their equipment by adding the Van der Graaf MKII.
Extremely easy to use, its benefits range from greater stability of the clocks in the DACs (with relative greater sharpness of the soundstage and rendering of details) to a darker background due to the bed of lower noise.
The Van Der Graaf MkII features four outputs: two single voltage and two triple voltage. The former are suitable for the Young MkIV and the Tosh, the latter for the Nash and the Marley MkII.
The Van der Graaf MKII remembers the order used by the user to activate the four outputs: when it switches off, it follows the reverse order and remembers the activation order at the moment of the next ignition.
The Van der Graaf MKII is equipped with an IR receiver and is able to intercept the on/off commands of the infrared remote controls of all other Rockstars series units. This allows the user to turn all connected units on and off with a single command with the correct switching order.
