I love this thing. I searched high and low for a solid USB to AES interface and after trying a MOTU 8D that gave me a lot of headaches, I finally tried this and it's great. For some reason there aren't too many options for USB to AES so if you want quality and don't want headaches, just go with MUTEC.

It's very stable with all the DAWs and apps I need to use it with, and it sounds great. You can tell it's a very high quality build.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
