TransAudio Adds Berlin-Based MUTEC’s Line of Professional Audio Clocks and Converters to Its Arsenal of High-End Audio Gear

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – JANUARY 2018: TransAudio Group, U.S. distributor of a carefully-curated collection of high-end pro audio recording equipment, is pleased to announce the addition of MUTEC to its line of manufacturers. MUTEC and CEO Christian Peters gained early recognition in the 90’s developing expansion cards for popular AKAI samplers. Today, MUTEC builds next-generation digital master clocks, audio re-clockers, interfaces, converters, and distributors all made in Berlin, Germany. Its proprietary technology lends near-perfect stability to digital audio systems with key improvements in overall fidelity and imaging. TransAudio Group will have MUTEC products on display in booth #14914 at the Winter NAMM show, January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

TransAudio Group’s clients will be interested in the MUTEC MC-3+ Smart Clock USB, which acts as an ultra-low jitter 1536 kHz word clock generator/distributor using MUTEC’s proprietary 1G-Clock technology. It can also act as an audio re-clocker to enhance incoming signal playback and offers interconnection between all manner of digital audio connectors and protocols. The USB connection features a galvanically isolated, audiophile-grade, asynchronous USB interface supporting extremely high-resolution digital formats. The MC-3+USB offers a “Swiss army knife” all-in-one solution to provide workflow convenience and enhanced performance to digital audio systems.

Another premier MUTEC product, the REF 10, is a 10 MHz reference master clock with eight 10 MHz outputs built around MUTEC’s handcrafted, ultra-low phase noise OCXO oven-controlled oscillator. The unique oscillator, coupled with no-compromise hardware, results in levels of noise and jitter lower than most of its competitors. The REF 10’s industry leading performance is a source of great pride for the engineering team at MUTEC. The MC-3+ Smart Clock USB can also be enhanced connecting the REF 10 on the 10 MHz clock input.

“We’re focused on working with manufacturers who build truly exceptional studio recording products,” said Brad Lunde, founder and president of TransAudio Group. “MUTEC is in that class. We performed listening tests and found important perceptible improvements to sound quality when we clocked or converted our signals with MUTEC devices compared to other high-end alternatives. We’ve been looking to fill this niche in our offerings for a while now, and we’re pleased MUTEC found a way to make another significant improvement to the digital audio systems of our clients.”

The MUTEC products are now available.

U.S. MSRP: REF10 $3,999 • MC-3+ $849 • MC-3+USB $1,199
