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...

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.
