The 3R Range: the master of magic
re-generating, re-clocking, re-driving the USB source signal.
From the uber hi-end systems of this world to the most modest laptop-based playback, an Ideon Audio 3R placed between source & digital-to-analog converter invariably, consistently, and dramatically improves the sonic result!
3R Master Time: Highest Precision USB Re-Clocking Platform
Almost unreal: Our top-of-the-line USB signal reviving® platform reveals undetected details to unsuspecting audiences.
Based on Ideon Audio’s proprietary technologies, dramatically improves the sound from digital audio computer files, and music streaming services. It achieves amazing sound performance by uncovering lost detail, enhancing dynamics, re-clocking the signal using ultra-low jitter oscillators, and minimizing transmission losses. Lost or hitherto unheard detail is uncovered, and dynamics are greatly enhanced. The music makes more and better sense.
The Master Time virtually transforms any PC/Laptop into a high-end source!
Precision timing, phase, and clarity: ultra-low jitter femto clocks and ultra-low noise oscillators to ensure phase correct restitution & drive
Dual drive output, stabilised output
Ideon’s proprietary triple (3x) ultra-stabilised, low-noise linear power supply.
Tackling the future: modular construction simplifies future updates.
An essential tool for recording and mastering professionals, should be in all enthusiasts audio systems!

REVIEWS & RATINGS
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.

…Even though, after the presentation of 3R’s capabilities during the Audio Video Show, I knew more or less what to expect, after maybe 10 seconds of the first track my jaw dropped to the floor, so to speak. The difference is simply stunning. It is like replacing a DAC with another, much more expensive one. …
…even with such fantastic, top notch converters the 3R Master Time still managed to do its job and improve their performances…
…There aren’t many other D/A converters I know with such a good price/performance ratio… …Having said that, I must admit, that the 3R Master Time is an even more impressive device. Combined with AyaZi mk2 it bravely competed with twice as expensive DAC, even excelling in some areas… …Actually after this experience listening to my DAC without the Greek USB re-clocker became a somewhat less attractive experience.
… the 3R Master Time is able to improve performance of (probably) any DAC, no matter how expensive…
