Mytek Announces Clef Mobile MQA DAC/Amp @ CES 2017

    Nice. I have the Centrance Dacportable and am wondering how it would compare (not as a bluetooth product but as a dacamp combo). Unless I missed it, has anyone seen the official release date (past Q1/2 2017)? Once it is released it would be nice to see a shootout against the other more popular portables: Mojo, Oppo HA 2SE, Dacportable, etc...

    Any new updates on when the Clef will be released? Have any reviews surfaced?

    Does the Mytek company have a Headfi presence like other audio companies do?

    i wonder Bluetooth V5 devices are coming out  to the market. Is Mytek going to support it? The clef is not out yet, but V5 support would be great.

    At least from the video I saw, They wanted to add the newer Bluetooth 5.0 spec to the device.

    Not much info on the Clef lately but in a video a Mytek rep says they scrapped the previous bluetooth design after finding they could upgrade the tech. Explains why aptx-HD, LDAC, and noise cancellation are now in the online brochure. Good decision (imo); should match perfectly with Android 8's new bluetooth options. Not sure if the 9018 DAC chip was also updated.

    I was also hoping they would add nav buttons as bluetooth seems pointless without a way to pause and skip songs. However, I found a post where the user stated the volume knob is multi-function where you press it in to navigate (would've been nice if Mytek mentioned this detail somewhere in the past 8 months). Keeps the design more streamlined but hope the knob/button combo works well.

    I think I saw that video this summer as well. Hopefully this fall we can get more concrete details on the Clef and when it will be released.

    Any one hear any updates if the Clef is still on course to be released at the end of the year, maybe?
