CLK-R - Low noise regulation / filter circuit. Ideal for clock and / or digital supply rails.
Clocks - Timing is the essence of musicality & without an accurate clock in your player you will never hear the original performance..
SPower - Hearing is believing! Low noise, fast response voltage regulators. The SPower benefits from a very low noise precision voltage reference point...
Low Jitter Clocks
We aim to offer the very best products and upgrades.
Fidelity Audio offer precision, low-jitter clocks to upgrade your digital source. The standard clock reference inside most CD / DVD & Blu Ray players is woefully inadequate offering at best a mediocre jitter performance.
"That C3 effect" - Many customers have realised no matter what the C3 clock is fitted to the effect on the music is always a wonderful analogue presentation with details and timing they never thought possible
'Timing is the essence of musicality and without an accurate clock in your cd player, dac or music server you will never hear the original performance as it was intended'
C3 Low jitter Premium clock
The Micro Clock 2
|Improving on the superb C2 the C3 has an even lower noise power supply. Using the same technology as in the SPower 'D' discrete regulator allied to a improved circuit layout. The C3 provides the ideal replacement to the manufacturers clock in your CD / SACD / BLURAY & DVD player that offers exceptional timing and detail allied to delicate treble reproduction and extended bass.||The Micro Clock 2 has undergone some serious surgery around its power supply. The clock now has the SPower 'D' discrete regulation fitted. The noise floor on the power supply is much lower allowing the oscillators to perform much better. The Micro Clock 2 is designed and developed for use in Squeezeboxes and other equipment with limited space and also require 2x oscillator outputs.|

Typical uses for the Premium clock:-
- Clocking DACs, Decoders & Servos
- TDA1541 dac (2x X1/2) , SAA7210 (X1) & SAA7220 (X1) chip set requires multiple clock inputs to really make huge gains in sound quality. The Premium clock can reclock all four pins.

- Marantz CD63 family Dac and Servo clocking (16.934 Mhz & 8.46 Mhz)
Just to say that I have completed fitting the clock (Squeezebox Duet) and all the upgrades and am delighted with the result. I did some more listening tests at the weekend. The result of all the upgrades is fantastic – tightened up the bass and tamed the slightly aggressive treble, as well as improving the imaging no end. Also, I had some 16bit 44KHz (CD quality) FLAC downloads of Bach Brandenburg concertos I got a couple of years ago that I had made a CD from. I was then able to do some A/B tests between the CD and playing the FLAC files directly via the Squeezebox. I have a very good CD player with a valve output stage & valve clock (a PrimaLuna ProLogue Eight). The Squeezebox was noticeably superior – and that was also my wife’s unbiased view! Noticeably the imaging and realism – the instruments were more ‘in the room’. Before the upgrade with your clock and Oscons, the bass seems a bit uncontrolled and the top end harsh and the sound-stage was very 2-dimensional.
Anyway, many thanks again for all your help & very best wishes,
"After determining the correct pad, of the crystal it replaced, things worked wonderfully! I'm quite pleased with the outcome...to the point that I'll probably go ahead and perform a more complete modification of the player. I'd have to say that, installing the C2 (or do you just call it the "premium clock," now?) has made me want to pursue the full extent of what more complete modifications could provide! This type of clock is more completely demonstrating the capabilities of a well-executed digital rig. (I have a good friend that owns a 60K+ vinyl rig that falls short of my completely modified OPPO 970...and yet, the OPPO BDP 80--with the C2 installed--is already showing even more promise than that!) I don't know if I had mentioned, but I'm a vinyl addict...going back to the early 70's. However, with the appropriate clock installed, and the associated mods to back it up, I find that I'm enjoying the actual music more than ever before!...from CD's! "
Thanks for all your help,
"I had a long chat with you about purchasing your Premium clock to replace the Audiocom Superclock 4-S in my Stello transport. I must say that I was suprised immediately with the change, quieter, smoother and more 3-D. As the weeks have progressed the timing has become superior and the resolution is in a different league"
"It sounds absolutely awesome! The sound has definately changed. The blacks are blacker and the whites are whiter. The seperation is to beheld. The sound has become smoother and more refined (to the point that I put the rubbish opamps back into my amp to make sure it was the clock making the difference!).
There is an openness and accuracy to the sound and its sooo sooo easy to listen to. The harsh edge I'd created (without realising) in chasing detail from this TDA1541 has been tamed with no loss of resolution. It's an altogether fuller sound with all the weight you could need. I cannot fault it in any way especially as it replaced a Trichord Clock 4"
"I originally purchased a competitors clock 3 with the outboard 12v supply. I was very impressed. About 2 years later I purchased a 4S to be used with this same supply. It was so much better! I was thrilled! Then came the Premium clock. The Premium was more open, natural, dynamic, and effortless ...and my Premium has only been "on" for about 4 days!"
