Surely it would now have to be the Geek Pulse. Does anyone know of anything less expensive with Femto clocks ?? It seems amazing that MSB can charge an extra $10,000 for similar technology as an "add on" for their (already expensive) top-of the-line DACS.
Here are the specs:
- Crystek special customized ultra-low jitter TCXO clocks x 2. (One at 90,316,8000 Hz, and one at 98,304,000 Hz) -- 85 Femto (85 * 10 ^-15) Second Jitter in 100M Hz region.
- Sub 1.0uV voltage reference supported dedicated clock power shunt regulator
- This is all internal to Geek Pulse and Geek Pulse X.
A "femto" clock is a super-duper-accurate clock. It's the abbreviated term for femtosecond, which is one quadrillionth of a second. If used properly in a circuit design (like we do!), it can greatly reduce or virtually eliminate periodic errors in interpreting a digital signal (aka 'jitter').
As you know, low jitter means a cleaner signal path, which results in a more natural listening experience. We're VERY excited about this great new perk!
