Berlin, April 2019. MUTEC is proud to announce that the MC‑3+ Smart Clock USB Re-Clocker and USB audio interface is now officially approved as a Roon Tested device. This certification program ensures a consistently enjoyable listening experience with the popular music playback software Roon.
The MUTEC MC‑3+ Smart Clock USB is an exceptional Audio Re-Clocker, audiophile USB Interface & lowest Jitter Master Clock. Ever since its launch, the MC̴+USB has garnered praise by owners and critics alike. Last year, the device was awarded by the editors of Fidelity Magazine, Germany’s premier audiophile magazine. Their newly created Fidelity Award highlights those audiophile products that stand out because of their technical excellence, the ingenuity of the developers, or the high-flying sonic qualities.
In their assessment of the MC‑3+USB the editors of the Fidelity magazine commend the sonic qualities of the device in addition to its versatility: "The sonic gain that the MC‑3+USB provides as a central hub, format converter and master clock in the digital audio environment is immediately obvious and convinces even the skeptics."
The MC‑3+USB and Roon
Now, the MC‑3+USB provides an even more enjoyable user experience in combination with the Roon player. Roon was designed to transform the experience of browsing music. Artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are located automatically, then interconnected by links to build a surfable, searchable digital magazine about the customer’s music collection. Roon also finds all the same links between a customer’s personal files and the millions of tracks available on TIDAL, so he or she can start with the music already in the library, then explore and discover new music from the world beyond the existing collection.
Apart from the user experience, Roon is also known to provide a wide range of software settings to ensure the highest quality audiophile playback and multi-room network configurations.
About the Roon Tested Program
Roon’s fundamental goal is to provide a consistently stellar user experience. This goal doesn’t stop at the software... the experience extends all the way down to the audio playback hardware, regardless of manufacturer. Roon currently works closely with more than 100 manufacturers through the Roon Ready and Roon Tested partner programs.
As a Roon Tested partner, MUTEC has provided equipment to Roon for testing with a variety of different operating systems and computers, and shared information about its design and capabilities. We have a direct relationship with Roon and in many cases, the Roon support team has our devices on hand, so you can confidently choose to use MUTEC hardware with Roon.
