Introducing the flagship master clock, a testament to Cyber Shaft's expertise and rich history.
Drawing from the success and insights of our previous models, we wholeheartedly recommend this feature-packed flagship model. It comes equipped with an OCXO, boasting performance on par with the OP21A-D. By opting for a 2-output, we've achieved a harmonious balance of high performance at an affordable price.
In line with the OP21A-D, only the most stable units from our freshly-calibrated OCXO batch have been chosen and integrated. With the inclusion of three next-generation linear regulators, LT3045, we've adopted an ultra-low noise, high PSRR secondary power circuit. This ensures an astonishing low phase noise of -121dBc/Hz (@offset 1Hz OP21A).
This product uses a brand new OCXO, and a unit with outstanding stability is selected and mounted by long-term calibration.
In addition to the OCXO unit, a robust heat insulating case composed of a magnetic shield plate and a heat shield board is added to maintain an environment where the performance of OCXO can be maximized.
The front panel is combined with a transparent cast material with a thickness of 4 mm to enhance the design.
The bottom of the chassis is made of 2 mm thick aluminum material + 8.4 mm thick laminated iron material, and has a robust vibration damping structure with a total of 10.4 mm thick plate. In addition, a strong magnetic shield using a 5.2 mm thick laminated iron material is configured around the board.
Uses aluminum die-cast 3-point support feet that can be stable on any installation surface. It can be replaced with an optional spike insulator with a 4 mm screw.
The output can be set to an impedance of 50Ω or 75Ω. (Registered utility model)
The function to insulate the GND side of the clock output from the GND of the main unit is the best way to protect against external noise. In most cases, insulating the GND will provide a noise-free connection and good results.
You can set whether to connect the output GND potential to the main unit's GND or to isolate it. It can flexibly handle complicated GND processing that differs for each audio system. (Registered utility model)
The DC supplied from the external DC power supply regulates the LT3045 with ultra-low noise and ultra-high PSRR inside this unit with a three-unit structure under the best conditions. Very clean DC is supplied to OCXO.
For the internal substrate, a copper foil substrate with a thickness of 70 μm, which is twice the normal thickness, is used. The internal layout, which has been verified many times, is in the best condition.
Equipped with an LED monitor that allows the oven circuit to operate normally and control the OCXO unit temperature.
Strictly measure characteristics using a highly accurate calibrated measuring instrument. The clock quality is guaranteed by plotting the phase noise and allan Deviation in the output section for each unit.
It comes with a 2-year free repair warranty.
Output GND insulation / enclosure GND selection function:
The output GND potential can be switched between "insulated from the chassis GND" and "housing GND". If the output GND of this unit is grounded in common, the GND potential difference between this unit and the connected device will flow through the GND of the connection cable, causing noise called a GND loop. Therefore, it is usually better to insulate the GND of each output for better noise resistance. Depending on the system you are using, the GND of each device may be firmly grounded. If there is no GND potential difference between these devices, it may be better to have the output GND grounded to the chassis GND to obtain better results against noise.
Since the environment of the audio system is various, you can choose the most suitable method according to your own environment. The bottom plate of this machine is equipped with a housing GND terminal.
External DC Power Supply:
This unit exclusively operates on an external DC power supply. It's imperative to have one on hand. We endorse our proprietary power supply (LTPW01P), but it's compatible with any linear power supply meeting the given specs. Required DC specs range between 13.5V to 16V at 1A, with a recommended 14V. The LT3045 can effectively mitigate noise even at a 1V input/output voltage difference. For optimal performance, use a minimal voltage difference within the stated range. The standard external DC plug is 2.1 mm/5.5 mm. Regular DC plugs are suitable; however, the [RS product 487-820] plug, which offers a screwable jack, is advised. [RS products are globally accessible.
OCXO characteristics selection value:
The OCXO mounted on this product uses a stable OCXO unit that has been calibrated for several months. In order to perform the optimum selection as an audio clock, we are conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the phase noise characteristics and the short-term stability (Alan Deviation) that allows more detailed examination.
The product cannot be evaluated by measuring only the output characteristics of the built-in OCXO unit. The measurement of our calibration is not the output of OCXO unit directly, but is measured from the output terminal of this product in order to evaluate all the performance including the buffer circuit.
