The writers of the reputed German audio blog HiFi-IFAs reviewed the year and picked their personal favorites. Among the chosen components is the MC3+USB.
For Falk Visarius of HiFi-IFAs, the MC3+USB was an audiophile highlight of 2022. The reviewer was positively surprised by the significant sonic improvement that this universal MUTEC interface can achieve in the context of a digital audio chain. He justifies his choice in favor of the MC3+USB as follows:
Digital technology always gives reason for heated discussions. If someone believes that in digital technology only ones and zeros are transmitted in a cable anyway, then that's fine. The MUTEC MC3+USB is a universal tool for those who want to get a closer look at digital data transmission in their hi-fi system or home studio. In a compact enclosure it combines the function of a digital format converter, re-clocker and master clock. The device offers connections from the professional and consumer worlds and therefore many opportunities to influence the signal.
In actual use, the MUTEC MC3+USB convinced the reviewer in every respect. His conclusion:
If you want to experience the jump forward your digital hi-fi system can make, without losing sight of the price/performance relation, you should go for the MC3+USB ... A true insider tip.
