Femto-Grade Master Clock Option*
Accuracy and overall quality of the master clock are crucial to obtaining optimum sound quality. The standard clock is no slouch but you now have the option to upgrade to the highest grade component available in its class. Implementation of this femto grade clock optimizes audio quality by lowering phase jitter by over 80% as well as greatly reducing phase noise in the digital circuit. Clocks of this grade are typically found in DAC's retailing for $6K or more. We highly recommend choosing this clock option if you do not already have it installed!
*Note for owners of DAC-2 (non-DSD) with Femto clock upgrading to the DAC-2v2 or 2v2SE: If you own a DAC-2 (non-DSD) and had the Femto clock upgrade done, be aware that the older clock in your unit is not compatible with the new DAC-2v2. If you would like to retain the Femto clock, you will need to re-purchase the Femto clock as part of your 2v2 upgrade. Choose the "Upgraded Femto clock" option in the Master Clock Option drop down menu. If you are unsure, call or email us with the serial # of your unit and we can look it up.
*Note for owners of original DAC-2 DSDSE made before March 2014: If you own an original DAC-2 DSDse made prior to March, 2014 and you are upgrading to the new 2v2SE, please know that your DAC did NOT come standard with the Femto clock. Unless you got the Femto clock upgraded separately, you will need to add it to your order by choosing the "Upgraded Femto clock" option in the Master Clock Option drop down menu if you would like it. If you are unsure, call or email us with the serial # of your unit and we can look it up.
