Cronus is a module designed for providing clocks to and re-clocking output from digital sources. Cronus forms the backbone for audio sources build around 2 other modules - Hermes and Rhea.An ultra low noise low impedance power supply for clocks.
A clock selection multiplexer to switch between 44.1 and 48Khz time bases
A selectable/bypassable ultra low phase noise clock divider to supply 1:2 or 1:4 clocks to a source
A synchronous reclocker that re-clocks the audio from the source back to the master clock; this brings all signals back into alignment with the actual master clock
Pads for pluggable clock sockets based on standard DIP(8 and 14) clock - See Rhea thread for more details
An interface for connection to our isolation modules for various sources - See Hermes threads for more details
NEW: Buffered Master Clock output for driving multiple targets
Interfaces for connecting to B3/B3SE and any other PCM/DSD DAC
SMA and uFL connectors for external clock signals (both in or out)
uFL connectors for PCM/DSD outputs
Cronus provides the following:
Rhea is a DIP8/14 compatible clock board with local bypasses for virtually all SMT clock types. Rhea modules utilize Crystek CCHD-957 Ultra-low phase noise oscillators.
