kajak12; diy clock
« on: September 02, 2010, 12:43:07 PM »
Quote from: kajak12
as some people are aware i have made my own clock.
basicaly the crystal needs a 5v power supply.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10700090/clock%20diagram.gif
i have supplied a schemetic of the crystal.
3 pins used only
pin 7 is ground
pin8 is clock output
pin 14 is 5v input(this the key are clean power supply needed)
i have ordered a voltage regulator with a lm317 of ebay cost $8.50us i will try to see what that does.
It's all about the music,, not the equipment.

i will use it with standard caps just to get an idea about what it needs.to create synergy
i was thinking about making one but it cost me $10.66 including postage thats cheap.

While I was in Japan, I remember seeing the Feastrex Japan guys using a rubidium clock in an external box connected to their modded EMT professional cd player (CDM1, TDA1541S2 chip).  Sounded very good(ie. not digital sounding at all)!

Does it matter what clock you use to replace clocks in different equipment. I ahve seen someone put a replacement clock in a squeezebox so would i, for example, be able to use the same clock you use in the marantz cd players?

I think it's around 5-6k USD, not that expensive comparing other high end audio stuff
