A quasi-one-dimensional conductor (TMET-STF)2Au(CN)2 is isostructual to the Bechgaard salt and shows a metal-insulator transition around 16 K (Tc). Tc is almost independent of magnetic field perpendicular to the conduction plane up to 13 T. The angular dependent magnetoresistance drastically changes in the ac plane at Tc. The metal-insulator transition is suppressed and superconductivity is induced by the pressure of about 6 Kbar. At higher fields than 20 T, the kink behavior is observed in the resistance at 6 Kbar. The T-B phase diagram is proposed at 6 Kbar.
