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.
