RME has rolled out SteadyClock FS, the latest version of its SteadyClock technology that offers synchronization and jitter suppression in digital audio signals, and the company will be highlighting this new development at the upcoming AES Convention in New York City (Booth 413).
The femtosecond clock lowers self-jitter by improving its second, analog PLL circuit and referencing both Direct Digital Synthesis and PLL to a low-phase noise quartz crystal.
“SteadyClock FS provides users with the lowest jitter they can possible get,” says Derek Badala, director of sales, Americas for Synthax — RME’s U.S. distributor. “The outstanding clock performance in our interfaces enable end-users to optimize their recordings and mixes because the soundstage has more depth and clarity.”
SteadyClock FS offers a few improvements in the latest FS version, including more efficient filtering and a design based on a low jitter reference clock.
RME’s recently released ADI-2 DAC converter is the company’s first product with SteadyClock FS. It’s a 2-in/4-out AD/DA converter that can be used as a USB audio interface, a double headphone amplifier, an AD/DA front end, a headphone amp for iOS devices, a multi-format converter (AES, SPDIF, ADAT) with monitoring function, a DSD record and playback solution, and an AD/DA frontend for audio measurement up to 768 kHz sample rate.
