Gungnir provides the world's most sophisticated AdapticlockTM clock regrowth system in a fully upgradable, hardware-balanced DAC with 32-bit D/A converters, advanced completely discrete analog output stage, with hardware summing for single-ended output. Like Bifrost, it also provides among the most sophisticated asynchronous USB 2.0 input areas offered. The USB, SPDIF BNC and RCA coax inputs, and Toslink optical input all offer 24/192 ability. So, what's all this about Adapticlock? Well, you probably learn about jitter. And you probably know among the best ways to kill it is with high-precision, voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) reclocking. Now, that's all well and good, however what occurs when you have a source that will not allow the VCXOs to lock? You know, like a satellite receiver or some computers? In other cases, you're toast. The VCXOs unlock, and jitter flows right through the system. In Gungnir, if the VCXOs will not lock, it shifts the whole reclocking network to VCOs. This permits us to lock to essentially any input, and still offer a low-jitter restored master clock. The result is higher-quality clocks, in spite of the source.
Fully Upgradable Balanced DAC with Unique AdapticlockTM Regeneration System
Gungnir offers the world's most advanced AdapticlockTM clock regeneration system in a fully upgradable, hardware-balanced DAC with 32-bit D/A converters, advanced fully discrete analog output stage, with hardware summing for single-ended output. Like Bifrost, it also offers one of the most advanced asynchronous USB 2.0 input sections available. The USB, SPDIF BNC and RCA coax inputs, and Toslink optical input all offer 24/192 capability.
Gungnir uses two AKM4399 32-bit D/A converters for real hardware balancing.
After the DAC, Gungnir uses fully discrete, JFET-input output stages for current gain and filtering.
Gungnir's Gen 2 USB input is one of the most advanced implementations available today, featuring a high-speed USB 2.0 interface (not 1.1) and asynchronous data transfer to 24/192, including 24/176, based on the C-Media CM6631A USB receiver.
