Ayazi DAC mk2 & 3R Master Time Black Star – Haute Fidélité (in French)

“…The melodic content and the timbre quality delivered by Ideon Audio’s duo is rare, even when compared to much more expensive products… to such an extent that we completely forget that we are listening to a digital source and simply enjoy the music – as it happens when listening to a great analogue setup. 

…It is a real current digital reproduction reference in quality / price ratio…  Ideon Audio may be a newcomer in the French audiophile landscape, but they look to earn their seat among the best.”

Ayazi mk2 DAC, 3R Master Time, 3R USB – hifitest.de (in German)

The difference between the 3R Master Time and the 3R USB Renaissance is fascinating. Ideon Audio’s efforts for good signal quality and correct processing pay off with more dynamic and detailed sound. Even a good DAC like the Ayazi can benefit from it.
