Major Product Announcement -- The Clock Module

Postby brian » Wed May 06, 2009 1:57 pm

First - the pcb is small 30 x 60mm, much smaller than existing clocks. It's well-populated with surface mounted devices on both sides of the pcb but purposely designed to have a small footprint.
Advantages:
1. digital signal is tightly confined which avoids spraying analogue signal components with toxic digital noise
2. easy to mount! only 30 x 60mm

Second - the clock module includes 3 snap-off adapters which makes comparing clocks and installation a walk in the park. Just install the right socket (DIP8, 14 or OSC native 2 pin) on your mainboard and after that - plug n play!

Third - no surgery needed on your existing mainboard. At most just a socket installation

Fourth - The DIYHFS OSC itself is selected not only for extremely low jitter, but also for phase integrity. They will be available to purchase separately.

Major Product Announcement -- The Power

Postby brian » Wed May 06, 2009 1:58 pm

Good engine needs good road or the potential is unrealized. Same with The Clock -- much of the benefit is impeded if it has to function in a bumpy electrical stream.
The Power module is the strongly recommended companion to The Clock Module. 45mm x 95mm and completes the package.

EZ Ultimate Clock System Tryout

Postby brian » Wed May 06, 2009 1:59 pm

Attached photo shows a Marantz CD-80 done right with the EZ Ultimate Clock System. No sense using a non-pedigreed CDP.

The original clock crystal was “fixed up” on the same socket used by the EZ Ultimate Clock so we could plug in one or the other for quick and convincing comparison.
The EZ Ultimate Clock System was a significant improvement, despite the fact that clock still needs to go through the SAA7220 as we used the “crystal emulation” mode (EZ installation).

Photo shows the CD-80, also with the UTS installed and with the Clock & Supply fitted.
The UTS too provided a major upgrade over the original analog stage, despite being already fitted OPA627 Op-Amp’s and many other upgrades including Elna Silmic Caps and Sanyo Os-Cons (as you can see).

The CD-80 with both of these is a majorly nice CD-Player.

EZ Ultimate Clock System -- For Those That Have Previously I

Postby brian » Mon May 18, 2009 3:09 am

As many are asking: What if I've already installed one of the not-so-EZ clocks and removed parts from my motherboard?

Yes replacing removed surface mount parts especially can evoke some or all of pain, fear and loathing.

If you have already installed clocks the "hard way" we recommend using "XO" output and wiring the clock signal directly to the clock pin, basically the same way you have previously connected the clock.

But just soldering in the XTal adapter in the place of the original crystal with non of the removed parts replaced will be fine too.
