MC-3+ Smart Clock USB

The MC-3+ Smart Clock USB is setting a new benchmark for clocking technology and the reproduction of digital audio by uniquely combining an audiophile USB interface with an audio re-clocker in perfection! Particularly designed for the demands of high-end consumer audio, the device expands a new sonic universe with increased musicality, clarity, and precision. As such, the MC‑3+USB will prove its worth in many audiophile listening rooms around the world.

USE CASES

  • Unique, bit-transparent Re-Clocking without conventional sample rate conversion for purest sound quality.
  • Audiophile, asynchronous two-channel USB interface with ultra-low noise audio clock oscillators and total galvanic isolation of up to 2500 VRMS, respectively 4242 VPK, for suppression of high-frequency interferences.
  • Converts DSD/DoP streams (64-256) to PCM audio with selectable output clock rate.
  • Locks to MUTEC's REF10, as well as so-called atomic clocks and GPS clock references.
  • Improved, next-generation REVIVE re-clocking and 1G-Clock technology by MUTEC.
  • Tested and approved to provide a consistently stellar user experience with Roon.
