Thanks a lot for the great news. When would it be available ?

Do you plan to integrate a 10MHz référence clock input ?

 

Hi! Patatorz,

 

Thanks for your interested. We planned to have group buy on the very first model. The price will be very attractive, and we will provide full support on how to setup Diretta with Roon Server, 

 

There is different implementation method on official Diretta Lucia - Piccolo motherboard, so the 10M Clock input is not possible. So, we have implemented a Giesemann 10M OCXO module inside for output 10M Reference Clock to external device. e.g, UpTone EtherREGEN or Esoteric DAC.  

 

For 10Mhz Reference Clock Input, we have another version of Diretta (Target USB Bridge x64) below which is designed to run with Respberry Pi4 (USB only), we can easily integrate with 10M Reference Clock Input to bypass the clock on CPU, USB, Lan chips.

Have a nice day.

Looks interesting

Will you provide a link to the product option and pricing?

 

Have few questions:

  1. I got confused a bit about the clock function - is this device using FEMTO Crystek clock or OCXO clock?
  2. What OS will it be running?
  3. Will you have an option to make it with optical network connection instead of Ethernet?

Hi! GMG,

 

We will have around 3 differents versions which is supported and designed from Diretta, they are running with Diretta ASIO OS, which is closed source code and every Project ClayX Diretta Network Bridge will comes with purchased full license. 

 

The pricing will be avaliable very soon this week.  

 

Three Versions:

  1. AfterDark. Project ClayX Diretta Network Bridge - Piccolo Edition (Lastest Model with Ethernet Lan port) 
  2. AfterDark. Project ClayX Diretta Network Bridge - Lucia Edition (Flagship Model with choice of SFP or Lan port)

Have few questions:

  1. I got confused a bit about the clock function - is this device using FEMTO Crystek clock or OCXO clock?
    • The digital interface board is optimised with FEMTP Crystek Clock 
    • For OCXO clock, it is a Giesemann OCXO Clock build in for output 10M Reference Clock signal to external devices.
  2. What OS will it be running?
    • Diretta ASIO OS, which required full license to activate. 
  3. Will you have an option to make it with optical network connection instead of Ethernet?
    • There is Flagship model called Diretta Lucia, which is build in SFP cage for optical network connection
    • This version is coming soon too. 

Thanks for your interested,

 

Best Regards,

Adrian

Thanks Adrian,

So I understand correctly that for Piccolo and Lucia the OCXO is only for output to other device and the internal function of the bridge is utilized by Crystek, and for Raspberry Pi4 Edition the OCXO is used for both the internal function of the bridge and output for other devices and has no Crystek clock? 

Is this correct?

Hi! GMG, 

 

That is correct. 😀
