Mutec MC-3+ USB
I can confirm what other have already observed. I received the Mutec Ref 10 several days ago and having had a chance to finally listen seriously - I am amazed by the clear difference c/w the Mutec 3.2 USB - specifically the space around the instruments, the clear limpid sound especially of piano music, the complete absence of glare despite the rounded clear tone, the sense that you are hearing the studio sound . . . Just amazing. . Fast detailed sound without the overdetailed glare that draws attention to itself rather than the music. The type of improvement I thought I might get by changing speakers . . !

I am streaming from a Mac mini via Hqplayer to a Mutec 1.2 (their basic usb converter), AES to the Mutec 3.2 USB, which is clocked by the Ref 10, to the Devs via AES. 

If one has the chance to try it out I would most definitely encourage it!

Hi @Spindrift
you refer to Mutec 3.2 USB in your post, but your sig says MC-3+ USB. Different units?

My bad! Thanks for catching that - I was referring to the MC-3+ USB and Mutec 1.2 - got my models mixed up. I am tempted to take the 1.2 out of the signal chain and just use the MC-3 USB directly but I don’t want to change too many things at once . .

Yes, good review and some background information that I’d never seen before. Have been using Roon Air a lot recently, but haven’t had the inclination to compare this closely to the Mutec output.
Anybody else done this?
