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.
BBC LS3/5A FALCON ACOUSTICS - THE ONLY GENUINE LS3/5A
The drive units are the renowned Falcon B110, and the Falcon T27 tweeter, both designed by Malcolm Jones, the original designer of the KEF B110 and KEF T27 that were specified in the original 15 ohm LS3/5a version designed by the BBC.
Both drive units are handmade in the UK to ensure the highest quality, grading and consistency, and are identical to the original LS3/5a drive units.
Authenticity in sound – Elegance in design Our main influence is Bauhaus, straight lined, form following function, simple and plain design.
The CIA-1 is a stereo integrated amplifier with four inputs. Optionally, one of them can be designed as a phono input. And it is possible to switch to power amp mode
The circuit board is a 6 multilayer-design, a 3D system for conductor tracks with maximized shielding and linearized energy propagation. This way we can ensure the shortest possible tracks.
State-of-the-art circuit board technologies like broadband Dirk decoupling of supply voltages up to 1 GHz ensure extremely high electrical stability along with minimal electromagnetic interference coupling.
Aqua Acoustic quality equipment is not subject to the whims of market fashion since they are built to achieve true high fidelity sound reproduction. By combining dedicated research with creative thinking, R & D Department has brought forth a range of innovation whose aim is to recreate the experience of live music in your home.

Formula xHD Rev. 2 Positive Feedback 2020 Brutus Award" I was taken by its sense of presence, its presentation of detail without being "analytical" or cold, and its ability to handle huge swings in dynamics. The no filtering/no oversampling plus FPGA is showing itself to be a powerfully credible approach to digital sound reproduction…I'm very impressed."

HYPSOS defines a brand new category of a hifi products. It’s not a simple power supply but an audio component of its own – an equally (or even more) important part of a setup as any other. HYPSOS offers a selection of unique features and even accounts for future software improvements – the device is software controlled with as few hardware dependent elements as possible.
The Hypsos really did it. More dynamics, better bass performance...
Since 1987, Cardas Audio has manufactured premium audio cables and component parts. George Cardas founded the company to perfect audio cables using ultra-pure materials, innovative Golden Ratio resonance control techniques, and uniquely insightful solutions to transmission line problems. The legendary connections and craftsmanship at Cardas reflect George's pursuit of perfection.
The brand, the first in its field in Italy and also one of the longest in the World, had thus originated in 1990 and with it had life a long series of first models fully welded by hand according to the most precise and sophisticated techniques for the metal craftsmanship. No welds in sight, quality wooden shelves, clean paints and turned spikes to facilitate the damping of vibrations towards audio components. Soon all these elements have become essential marks of the working processes, characterizing uniqueness of the stands in the worldwide market.
The REF10 is the most flexible, most compatible 10 MHz clock on the market allowing you to spend less time worrying about integration and leaving you with more hours to enjoy blissful playback. Due to its ultra-low noise characteristics and its unrivaled flexibility the REF10 can enhance the audio quality of compatible D/A converters (DACs) and re-clockers, music servers, and audio clocks to the highest possible level. It is the perfect match and ideal upgrade for MUTEC's 10 MHz ready products like the MC‑3+ and MC‑3+USB Smart Clocks, as well as the iClock and iClock dp.
"It's incredible how much this clock adds to the sound fidelity - you have to hear this yourself!" –
The "tuning" variant REF10 SE120 outperforms the original model REF10 in this regard considerably. A clearly measurable advantage is the result of a special feature of the REF10 SE120: its much more elaborately manufactured and selected oven‑controlled quartz oscillator (OCXO). This oscillator is selected according to the strictest standards in test procedures lasting many hours with the help of exceptionally precise and expensive measuring technology. The use of such an outstanding oscillator is responsible for the fact that the REF10 SE120 from MUTEC currently delivers - to our knowledge - the lowest phase noise, respectively jitter values in the industry. This outstanding technical performance has a noticeable impact on the sonic result. Precision, transparency, spatiality and dynamics of the musical presentation reach an unprecedented level and will inspire you!
"The unit makes a clear audible difference. What was recorded with the REF10 SE120 radiates now a high-class aura, it sounds more elaborate, more expensive. The spatiality increases to a significant degree".
