MC 3 + WOW !

07.04.2016
Received my MC3+ from Thomann last night

All the processes of buying on line went very smoothly

Was well packed and double boxed, very nice for international order!

I plugged it in, was very simple and intuitive to operate

Straight away a lock on both devices

I have Meitner gear, which likes a good clock

It replaced a very good quality lucid SRC

Lately I had been struggling with the sound of the system

Instantly....Bamm it all came into focus, my jaw dropped

I put on some test tracks I know very well

The presentation was 200% better I am not kidding :)

In particular the bass was much better defined, and more realistic, seemed to extend lower and louder

The mids and highs we more natural and the space between instruments greater

Timbral nuances were better delineated

I was totally impressed, and most of the issues I had been struggling with seemed to have dissipated

Very very impressed

So much so I am ordering two more !

A must for every Highender

Bernd6064, 20.02.2014
Die Verbesserungen des Mutec-Geräts wirken sich am meisten im Hochtonbereich aus und nehmen mit fallender Frequenz ab. Ich meine jedoch selbst die Bässe profitieren noch durch etwas mehr Impulstreue und Staffelung.
Mein Fazit:
Das Mutec muss mal als Musikliebhaber einfach haben oder zumindest ausprobieren.
Für den Preis gibt's nix Besseres.

Ps.: Das Clock Gerät sollte an ein sehr hochwertiges Stromkabel ( z.B. meine Wunderwaffe Eupen 3X 2.5mm mit Ferritummantelung ) + Netzfilter angeschlossen werden." data-mt-lang="en-x-mtfrom-de" data-translated="Hello dear music fans! <br> As an introduction, I would like to say that I rarely feel compelled to write any comments.

The whole system is then operated by an approximately 30 Kg voltage stabilizer (10A continuous load possible) and mains filter.

So the space is broader and especially the deep graduation benefits enormously especially with already always high-profile recordings eg various Jazz ECM recordings. Or in the rock pop area, my favorite stereo test reference Q-Sound CD by Roger Waters "Amused to Death", or all sorts of Madonna recordings (especially album music title No. 9 "Paradise"), was recommended to everyone.

In the play Paradise of Madonna you are not sitting in front of the "Klangaquarium" but is in the middle of the picture as in the 3D cinema. The one or the other sound comes almost scary close to the head of the listener (about 10 cm) which one shrinks. One hears the end of the song as the Madonnastimme is doubled and with me at about 3m distance singing and their "heads" in the room. Just unbelievable. Of course not only the spatiality but also the sound in itself becomes natural and "analogue" to reality. Certain noise, such as a side noise of a bell that appears spatially offset like a kind of artefact or harmonic wave that is now gone.
