I tried with my friend to make blind test. I can say easily if Mutec is connect or not connect. Also without Mutec you have a very good performance, but with Ref 10 you have a clear improvment.
    I sold Melco N1A and in the future I would like buy new Melco N50. In the meantime I will use a Samsung T7 1 Tb. Now I must buy a usb cable a-c and I not decided yet what model.

    Did you try to compare your Nordost Frey 2 with normal usb cable a-c?
    Good for you! Glad it worked out for you. As I said in my post you quoted, I was pissed my ears were not sophisticated enough to hear any difference, but it is what it is. We all hear differently. For me, the master clock is a closed chapter. For you: enjoy!

    Yes, the Frey 2 blows it away... After my friend tried it on his digital player he also bought one.

    Yes, I think so with N01XD. N01XD has the new Grandioso Custom VCXO II high-precision clock. You really need a G1X or the top Cybershaft and a top spec clock cable to make it worth the effort, and that is a lot of $$$.

    I’m going to ask a silly question, but just to be sure, did go into the menu of the device and engage clock sync? Some folks think you just connect the clock and it works, but you must go into the menu and engage clock sync.
