Lowest cost DAC with Femto Clocks  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

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:
 
  1. 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.
  2. Sub 1.0uV voltage reference supported dedicated clock power shunt regulator
  3. 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!

It's not about what it costs it is about what people will pay i.e it is Economics and Psychology not engineering.
