Queries on your AfterDark items


Recommended Posts

I have questions about the items you have on your website. Perhaps I can ask them here, and others who have their own questions may also post them and get answers they need. 

 

1. what's the difference between:

"AFTERDARK. BLACK MODERNIZE LPS X GIESEMANN OCXO 10M EDITION" 

And 

"AFTERDARK. BLACK MODERNIZE LINEAR POWER SUPPLY" 

 

Is one specifically for use with the ocxo clock? If so, how is it different? 

 

2. For the linear power supplies above, can both dc outlets be used at the same time? What is the maximum current supply? 

 

3. Are the outlets 2.5mm or 2.1mm?

Hello! Roasty,

 

The Giesemann LPS is new design for Giesemann OCXO Clock, the power supply is having very low noise floor with extra filtering, the transmission is further enhanced by Furutech NCF IEC Inlet.

 

The power supply is rated at 12V 1.9A, it is dual outputs with 12V. 

 

The outlets is 2.1mm on both sockets.

Hi,

I want details for my ER.

1- Etherregen is 75 ohm. The afterdark is 50 ohm. Does the adapator degrade the signal?
2- The QUEEN -SQUARE WAVE 75OHM SPECIAL EDITION is that it is directly into 75 ohm, no need for the adapter?
What is the difference with the other versions?
3-Uptone says on their site that there is no need to add an external clock. He changed his mind with your AfterDark external clock?

 

merci

While I admit the text on the EtherREGEN product page was written long ago, just prior to launch, I just read it again and nowhere do we indicate that there is no need or benefit to an external clock.

 

However, as with our stance on upgraded power supplies, our goal is to be sure people understand that they can enjoy great benefits with the EtherREGEN just as sold. In fact, the majority of EtherREGEN owners do not upgrade the power supply or clock. Such may add only another 5-10% of “goodness,” but of course that is a subjective judgement.


Of course people are welcome to enhance the performance of the EtherREGEN—or anything else in their system—with the fine and affordable offerings from AfterDark, our Hong Kong partner. :D

HI! MasterWarzombi,

 

Thanks for your question related to Giesemann clock and EtherREGEN.

 

Here is the answer:

 

Question 1 -  We will provide the matching ohm adaptor which is made from Cybershaft, and they have certified with measuring instrument, to ensure they are in lab grade product for audio application. 

 

  • Agilent E5061A Network Analysis
  • HP35678A 50ohm Calibration Kit
  • HP11854A 50ohm BNC Accessory Kit
  • Wiltron 75ohm Termination 26N75A 

 

AfterDark. is collaborated with Cybershaft to promote their excellent product along with EtherREGEN. Mr. Kenji san from Cybershaft give us more information in related to the matching adaptors from last November 2020.

Dear Adrian,

 

This mail thread was created for technical information exchange.

 

<T001> Impedance matching of external clock input of Uptone EtherREGEN

 

We report using our product CYB-MA01 to make the external clock input of EtherREGEN with 75ohm impedance compatible with 50ohm.

We used the 75ohm EtherREGEN you arranged for us in July.

By installing CYB-MA01 for EtherREGEN 75ohm external clock input, SWR = 1.0225, showing very good matching.

( The characteristics of SWR = 1.0225 are comparable to inconsistencies on a 1m cable, for example. It's a very small value. )

 

This data and photos can be shared and reprinted by you and us.

 

We hope that this information will be useful to you and your customers.

 

We hope that you and we will post new technical information to each other in this email thread.

 

Best regards,

Kenji Hasegawa

Question 2:  The QUEEN -SQUARE WAVE 75OHM SPECIAL EDITION is that it is directly into 75 ohm, no need for the adapter? 

 

  • Yes, Square Wave version is in 75ohm and no adaptor is required, which is special edition for EtherREGEN.

 

Question 3: Uptone says on their site that there is no need to add an external clock. He changed his mind with your AfterDark external clock?

 

  • We receive a lot of customer feedbacks, the Giesemann Clock is much better, cannot live without it
  • For customer, if using Mutec MC3-USB, upgrade with Giesemann Clock is the best option for improve their audiophile system.

How do you know that it is not the right clock since there is no indication on the clock itself nor a serial number? Finally, is that what has been indicated several times?

You got your point. In the box you get a paper with model you've purchase and measurements of that model. There is nothing on the clock telling what model it is.

It is quite possible that I got clock of other customer

Hi Adrian,

Looks like that Geisemann clock that I got cannot work with my dCS Network Bridge. I'm emailing with Frank back and forth in order to find the best solution for me. I'm looking at  Giesemann Word Clock x 10M Master Clock for dCS system and it seems that this is something that will work for me. I'm interested in price for Emperor Double Crown. Please advise

 

Thanks

Hi! MarkoL,

 

Thanks for your question. We are sorry to hear that the last order item was not working for your dCS NB. We have communicated with Frank our US dealer to give you the best solution for upgrade. I shall email you for the trade-in arrangements. Let me explains some of the features.  

 

AFTERDARK. PROJECT CLAYX GIESEMANN WORD CLOCK X 10M MASTER CLOCK FOR DCS SYSTEMthumbnail_image4_a07ad686-1ed9-47da-92dc

 

The new version is tailor made for one of our customer which he use dCS before, and his old Mutec MC3 dead, so he want to use Giesemann with word clock output from the OCXO, so we build him a very first unit last month. 

 

This version has three outputs:   

 

Output 1:  Word Clock 44.1Mhz 

Output 2:  Word Clock 48Mhz 

Output 3:  10M Master Clock 

 

Output 1 and 2 can be plug into dCS NB, plug and play and sync in a second.

Output 3 can be utilised in the future devices, such as EtherREGEN, Mutec MC3-USB

 

So, we can have every devices sync with single Giesemann Clock. 

 

The Emperor Double Crown is an excellent choices. The improvement will be huge when you have high resolution system. 

 

Thanks for your interested and have a nice day.

 

Best Regards,

Adrian
