The Master of Timing Grimm Audio’s CC1 V2 brings the incredible clock stability of the AD1 to your current setup! The CC1 V2 accepts Word Clock and distributes a super high quality Word Clock sync to all equipment in your system. Alternatively, use the CC1 to reclock and de-jitter the s/pdif digital audio connection between your CD transport or media server and DAC (a set of XLR-RCA conversion cables is provided with the unit). Now, any studio or high end system can benefit from some of the features of our AD1’s unique sound quality like ultimate musical timing and stability of tone. “With regards to a clock, accuracy and stability are two very different things.” Grimm Audio’s extensive research into the correlation between jitter and sound quality brought to light that emotional response to music is vastly more sensitive to jitter than previously realized. Attention turned from “making jitter low” to achieving the most stable clock possible. Marketing tends to express a clocking circuit’s performance in a “the lower the better” ppm (parts per million) or picosecond (1 picosecond = 1 trillionth of a second) number. Hence the claim that Atomic clocks are “the best” for audio because of their accuracy. Atomic clocks are “accurate”.Some are only a second off in a century (about three billion seconds): an average accuracy of 0.3 parts per billion or 0.0003ppm. That’s the sort of thing they were designed for. Does that imply that they are only one three-billionth of a second off in one second? Not at all. When a clock runs one millisecond late during one second and one millisecond early during the next, it’s basically correct again. So long as these short term errors don’t accumulate over time, they do not disqualify the clock as a timepiece. But you will agree that it would not merit the name “stable”. On the other hand, a clock that is one second off every day could still manage to slice every second into tiny slivers that are just perfectly equal. Accuracy and stability are two very different things. “Owing to a radically redesigned discrete crystal oscillator, CC1’s clock stability betters that of even the best test equipment available.” Grimm Audio’s research turned up a surprising array of previously underestimated performance factors that affect a clocking circuit’s stability, like power supply noise, oscillator control circuit noise and low-level crosstalk. The end result is that owing to a radically redesigned discrete crystal oscillator, clock stability betters that of even the best test equipment available. To sync to an external reference the CC1 sports a PLL offering an astounding 90 dB of jitter suppression at 10 Hz, further improving at 60 dB/dec. The CC1 offers base rates of 44.1kHz and 48kHz and 1/2/4 multiples in separately selectable groups, in addition to an AES/EBU reclocker for cleaning the digital feed to your DA converter. Like all Grimm Audio products, the CC1 features striking styling and solid build quality.

For those refusing to accept compromises in audio quality there is the Isochrone 10M - a Rubidium Atomic Reference Generator based on real atomic technology. The 10M is designed specifically to appeal to the most discerning audiophiles and audio professionals. The Rubidium Atomic Clock is the perfect companion to the Isochrone audio master clocks such as the OCX or OCX-V. When connected to the Isochrone 10M, these devices switch over automatically from oven-based crystal to the superior Rubidium Core. Isochrone 10M is the ultimate tool in achieving analog sound. Experts agree that 10M is probably “the best sounding clock” ever produced. The Atomic Clock is distinguished by an extremely sturdy mechanical construction, making it highly resistant to mechanical shocks. In the Antelope tradition of making things easy to use, just connect and power it on; the status lights are visible at a glance and all information is prominently shown on the easy-to-read frequency display.
As digital technology proliferates, clock distribution is more critical than ever, and the DA is the definitive solution. The Isochrone DA is a new, unprecedented approach to clock distribution. Designed to provide far more than clock distribution, the DA's unique regeneration technology will both synchronize the studio with unmatchable precision, and also make connected devices sound better than anyone thought possible. The Isochrone DA was created to benefit any studio, not just those that need more clock outputs.Other Clock Distributors simply amplify the outgoing clock signal, redistributing unstable, jitter polluted clock throughout the studio. This process introduces additional jitter to the signal as well, making it an overall poor way to address sync distribution. The Isochrone DA approaches distribution in an entirely different way, circumventing the flawed amplification approach used by other devices. With Antelope's exclusive clock regeneration process, the DA distributes signal that is vastly superior to the source. This low jitter signal stabilizes the entire studio, and connected gear will experience significant improvements in sound quality.Typically, a clock distributor is not added to the studio until there's a shortage of clock outputs, but the Isochrone DA is an immediate asset, regardless of situation. Adding an Isochrone DA is the easiest way to upgrade your existing master clock, allowing it to achieve the high levels or performance found only in Isochrone clocking hardware. Even the most high-end master clocks will exhibit noticeable improvement as a result of adding the DA.
In the fickle world of Audio & Video formats, the new Trinity will be the Master Clock that stands out from the crowd for years to come, with the kind of features that other manufacturers can only aspire to.
