Just under a year ago, we met the guys from MyTek Digital at CanJam NYC. There we met MyTek's Michal Jurewicz, who was holding an oddly-shaped device in his hand — at the time, we only knew that it was a prototype Bluetooth headphone adapter. Today, MyTek made things official by announcing the Clef, which they're calling the "world's first portable, battery-powered hi-fi system."

According to MyTek, the Clef is a high-resolution USB DAC, Bluetooth adapter, and headphone amplifier that brings the warmth of vinyl to mobile. Its specs seem impressive — an internal DAC capable of handling extremely high-resolution PCM and DSD files, MQA support, and several Bluetooth codecs (SBC, AAC, AptX, and LDAC). It’s listed at $299. We’re hoping to get some time with the Clef at CES; we’ll report back on what we hear. We already know why it’s got that odd shape, but we’ll save that story for our review.



Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
