The MERGING+NADAC and MERGING+PLAYER offers fidelity and audio quality that has left many critics in awe. The MERGING+POWER pushes the envelope a little further by providing the optimum power conditions for each circuit. The MERGING+CLOCK eliminates the last possible performance compromise: The Master Clock.

Merging is all about eliminating compromises but offering a choice to meet different budgets. The CLOCK is therefore available as two editions:

Options:

CLOCK-L

The Low Noise edition, offers extraordinary accuracy with a frequency stability of +/-50ppb.
The state of the art in clocking performance.

CLOCK-U

The Ultra-Low Noise edition, offers the almost unbelievable figure of +/-20ppb.
The choice for those pursuing the ultimate!

    • The two MERGING+CLOCK editions get you to the pinnacle of accuracy by employing an instrument-grade crystal oscillator OXCO that is coupled to a Q Damping System. This reduces the effects of any mechanical vibrations that might be present in your listening environment.
    • Years of experience and research by Merging led to the discovery of these critical points – short-term clock stability and phase noise performance are exceptionally important for sound quality. MERGING+CLOCK provides the state-of-the-art solution for digital audio applications, which achieves 7E-13 grade short-term stability at subsecond and as low as -111dBC at 1Hz offset (CLOCK-U). More important than the technical specifications, the MERGING+CLOCK will stir the emotions and touch your heart with the purity of the sound.
    • High-precision clocks are supplied by a number of manufacturers and there are recognized standards for devices that are not part of a network. The MERGING+CLOCK provides three different connection types. The first is the RJ45 connector for RAVENNA/AES67 networks; follows a dedicated 625kHz specially adapted for a direct NADAC or PLAYER connection; then two 10MHz BNC connectors for other Hi-End components and finally four standard BNC Word Clock connectors for every sample rate from 44.1kHz to 1536kHz. That is 32 times 1FS!
