This is the extremely low noise power supply from the M2Tech Rockstar series of products. Even though it is from the Rockstars series, it can power products from the Evo Two series. For example here at Sound Aid we power our demo Evo DAC Two Plus via the Van Der Graaf MkII.
When it comes to high audio performance, the quality of the current being delivered to a hi-fi unit is overly important. Noise in the supply current may be injected into the sound or couple with critical circuits, like the clock, leading to less-than-optimal performance.
A low noise supply is therefore mandatory to squeeze the last bit of sound quality out of your DAC or amplifier. Of course, a low noise design involves quality, room occupation and cost way beyond those acceptable in budget designs.
That’s why M2Tech offers the Van Der Graaf MkII: users who purchased the Young MkIV DAC (or earlier versions of Young) and the Nash Phono Preampmplifier may later allocate some more budget to increase their performance by adding the Van Der Graaf MkII.
Extremely easy to use, its benefits go from the higher stability of the clocks (with related increased soundstage sharpness and details rendition) to a darker background due to the lower noise floor.
The Van Der Graaf MkII remembers the order user followed to activate the four outputs: when switching off, it follows the reverse order and remember the activation order upon subsequent switch-on.
The Van Der Graaf MkII is provided with an IR receiver and is able to trap the ON/OFF commands from the remote controllers of all other Rockstars Series units. This allows user to power all the attached units on and off with a single command with the right switching order.
