Well, some reviews of the Gustard R-26 with and w/o this clock showed no difference. I guess if the internal is good enough it doesn't matter.

 

Hi! botrytis,

 

We recommended to try to player music file with high resolution such as 192kHz or DSD512 upsamply with HQPlayer together with external clock. The Gustard R26 can be significant improve with more refine and details with external clock.

 

Best Regards,

Adrian

Hi @bodiebill

Did you investigate feeding 625Khz to Hapi.  I found the following

Can the MERGING+CLOCK be used with Horus or Hapi?

Yes, you can use the NADAC CLOCK output along Horus and Hapi as of Firmware 3.9.3b38957 and above.For Horus and Hapi running previous firmware versions, you can use any of the standard WC output.

It is ambiguous in that I have to assume that the NADAC clock output refers to 625.  It seems so from the layout posted earlier by @AfterDark.I am wondering if it is better to feed the Hapi 625Khz.  Otherwise I will just stay with the normal frequencies/std. output.  Cheers

 

Hi! Mantheunknown,

 

Thanks for your interested to using external clock as upgrade path towards your Merging HAPI. We recommended to use one of the DDC in between the external 10M Master Clock and Merging HAPI. The DDC is helpful to make change of WC frequency automatically to enhance both the digital performance and listening pressure without worry about manual changing of WC frequency on music playback. 

 

Have a nice weekend.

 

Best Regards,

Adrian

Hello Adrian,

 

I have read the exchanges on this forum and the enthusiastic comments on the use of AfterDark clocks.

I'm putting my case to you and asking on the best way to implement the SQ in my system.

 

I currently own a Clock Gustard 16 50ohm and a 75ohm BG7TBL 10MHz OCXO. Over time all components have been homogenised to 75 Ohm and I have put the Gustard aside.

 

I use all the 3 BNC outputs of the BG7TBL for: the Audio GD HE-20, SOtM Ultra Neo with Clock input and Ether Regen. Now, to improve the SQ I have two possibilities:

 

1. Buy in your site 50 ohm to 75 ohm adapters and use the Gustard (this clock has the advantage of offering 3 + 3 outputs and I think that have a best sound quality compared to BG7TBL clock).

2. Replace the BG7TBL with an AfterDark clock (in which case with which of your models?).

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Have a nice day

Alex
