Smile CP-800 + (MC-3+USB) = Heaven

My system is based on digital streaming, and I listen 90% to classical music and jazz. The source is an Auralic Aries getting music from the NAS on my home LAN.

I enjoy my CP-800 and really appreciate the crossover, EQ, and features that set it apart from the crowd. I have felt at times that the DAC might not be quite as good as my previous Auralic Vega.

That feeling was cast aside when I added a Mutec MC-3+ USB reclocker to my system. What I've noticed is better image specificity and stability, plus a more transparent feeling of being in the recording environment.

The Mutec also converts DSD to 176/24 PCM and serves as a USB-AES3 converter. It has many glowing reviews in the Pro Audio and Audiophile press. I think it's worth a try by anyone with a CP-800 who is not entirely convinced by the DAC.
