DESCRIPTION

REFERENCE AUDIO CLOCK FOR THE HIGHEST QUALITY RECORDING AND AUDIO PLAYBACK

To achieve high-quality recording and playback capabilities, a higher performance clock, that can be used as a system reference, is a must. The Gustard's C18 is one of the most sought after audio clocks by many users who use it to enhance the audio recording and playback quality. Engineered with an ultra-low noise oscillation core, the C18 offers advanced signal generation, transmission, distribution and driving. You can be anyone from an audio engineer, music producer or an audiophile, the Gustard C18 is for you to experience sound in the highest quality possible.

CUSTOMIZED SC CUT OCXO LOW NOISE ISOTHERMAL CRYSTAL FOR DETAILED AND REALISTIC AUDIO PERFORMANCE

Managing the temperature efficiently is vital to the performance of the audio clock. The quartz crystal resonator installed in the crystal oscillator often faces high-temperature issues. To deal with this the Gustard C18 employs oven-controlled SC Cut Ocxo crystal isothermal oscillators that use a constant temperature bath to keep the temperature in check. This low noise crystal oscillator reduces fluctuations in the oscillator output frequency caused by changes in ambient temperature. The upgraded oscillation core ensures detailed playback, realistic restoration and an optimized sound performance way better than the previous model C16.

LOW LOSS GDRV-P1 DRIVER ENABLING INDEPENDENT SQUARE & SINE WAVE OUTPUT

The back-end equipment cannot be driven by the power of the OCXO alone. On being directly connected to the back-end equipment, it raises challenges like signal instability, causing indicators degradation and adversely affecting the sound. Additionally, connecting multiple devices at a time becomes impossible. To address these issues head-on the Gustard C18 comes with a dedicated driving circuit—GDRV-P1. This high-performance low-loss driver lowers phase noise output while also delivering two independent signals for square wave and sine wave output at a time. This leads to a better connection with the back-end equipment. You can pair the Gustard C18 with a customised C2 clock line (sold separately) to further enhance the performance.

GET NOTHING BUT PURE SOUND WITH A LINEAR POWER SUPPLY & AUDIO DEDICATED TOROIDAL

When it comes to the performance of audio clocks, a stable circuit is essential. With the Gustard C18, there are discrete components employed in compliance with the voltage that not only ensure a stabilized circuit but also increase the response speed while keeping the ripple and temperature drift at the minimum. The use of audio dedicated toroidal along with integrated linear power supply, hierarchical and multi-channel voltage stabilization, reduced crosstalk and clean power supply pave the way for clean and pure sound.

PAIRS SEAMLESSLY WITH A HOST OF AUDIO DEVICES THAT CAN INPUT 10M CLOCK SIGNALS

High-grade audio clocks like the Gustard C18 have always played a crucial role in the HiFi digital field as they bring about significant improvements in the overall sound. With the potential to reduce clock signal distortion, the Gustard C18 can be best paired with U16, S16 and X26PRO. You can connect the C18 with other audio devices provided they can take 10M clock signals.
