Mytek Digital Introduces Clef Portable Hi-Fi System at CES 2018

Mytek Digital, a pioneering creator of professional recording studio equipment since 1992, begins shipping and taking orders for Clef, the first of its kind portable Hi-Fi system with USB and Bluetooth inputs producing vinyl-quality sound on-the-go.

The lightweight portable Bluetooth device features high resolution digital-to-analog conversion and amplification more than double the output volume of an iPhone. Intelligently crafted to cater to a new generation of vinyl enthusiasts who don’t want to compromise quality while outside of the home, Clef is compatible with all music streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.

The first product in Mytek’s new consumer audio division, led by product designer Yousef Ali, industrial designer Egill Karlsson and engineer Michal Beldyga, Clef solves the problem of delivering vinyl-quality sound from a music streaming app to your headphones. Clef is lightweight and portable – weighing only 3.5 ounces and easily fitting into your pocket.

Clef comes equipped with a built-in microphone to answer incoming phone calls while streaming without having to juggle devices. Clef also has a headphone amplifier and a hardware digital-to-analog converter for playing back the most demanding hi-res audio formats from DSD to Tidal Masters. The battery capacity is approximately eight hours and charges via micro USB.
