“…That’s why I really enjoyed the Ideon Ayazi Mk. 2 DAC and the 3R Master Time Black Star. I consistently achieved excellent sound from several sources and wildly different systems, and it provided me with a clear view of what the big DACs can do, converters like, I dunno, the Ideon Audio Absolute. I really want to hear what that can do that this rig can’t. Or maybe I shouldn’t listen to it at all—because I’ll want THAT.
Highly recommended, and a Reviewer’s Choice..”

“..Ideon sounds like competition on much higher price levels, where it does not need to prove anything to anybody, and instead of showing muscles, it makes music count. Because it is the music, which is most important here, and the Ayazi presents it in such an engaging way, that if instead of looking for more revolutionary solutions or re-inventing the wheel, you just want music to soothe you, then contact with the Greek DAC could be like return to normality for you.

“… And, what is most important, the improvement was audible in each and every aspect. This is why, when you are listening to music by streaming the zeros and ones through the USB port, you should at least invite the Ideon Audio 3R Master Time Black Star home for testing, however with the caveat, that this might become a much longer stay. Even more, if you like music, and you would like to live it in the highest quality possible, I do not imagine, you would not try it out. But if you pass on it, you will lose a lot, for sure.”

“…The Ayazi Mk2 DAC and 3R Master Time combo is one of these real discoveries, the kind of which is rarely encountered…
It is hard to speculate what secrets are hidden in their entrails, to allow them to attain this magnificent sonic result. Whatever the case the result is indisputable: the Ideon Audio Ayazi Mk2 + 3R TM are among the
best digital products at their price range and well beyond. This duo is a marvel of technical mastery
that connects us directly to the heart of the music. It is a real current digital reproduction reference in quality / price ratio.
