FS: MUTEC MC-3+ USB Smart ClockAudio-Reclocker USB SPDIF Converter RRP £900 [SOLD]

This is a great accessory for improving digital audio sound quality. It has multiple features and use cases:

  • passing audio from a PC via USB and outputting it in spdif (optical/coaxial/bnc/aes) for input into a DAC
  • re-clocking spdif signals to reduce jitter
  • converting spdif audio to USB audio e.g. for recording on a PC or for a DAC that only has a USB input

The latest firmware is installed - sounds better than ever.

No original box, but it will be well packed.

£500 incl delivery. UK only sale, sorry
