Hi there, there are two ways to explore connection to a Vivaldi Upsampler… AES and USB.
With Antipodes you can switch between the two outputs using the Solution Dashboard.
With the new G4 OLADRA with the improved USB which is best would be personal preference and source material etc.
@MarkCole , what is the output of the Oladra clock? 75ohm connection?
trying to understand whether it can act as a reclocker for my entire dCS Vivaldi stack replacing the Mutec Ref 10 external clock. Thanks.
It’s a word clock, so the frequency will be based on the frequency of the track that’s playing. This word clock signal is in most cases passed along the cable when using a synchronous output. The word clock output just allows one to tap into this for devices that have a separate word clock input.
In a moment of curiosity I wondered whether anyone has been able to make use of this word clock output on the Antipodes? I have not heard any reports of anyone doing so. Have you heard any reports or indeed has anyone?
Its not compatible, the Antipodes Word Clock is a Master, and DAC connected must be run in SLAVE mode.
The word clock works on multiples of 44.1 and 48
Honestly most high quality DAC’s already have a high quality clock, the benefit is for a DAC that is configurable in SLAVE mode.
Nothing wrong with two great clocks in your system.
It is an option to be tested if your DAC is able to be used in SLAVE mode, if your DAC is not able to be set to SLAVE, then there is no point in testing it, as it will not work, sit back relax and enjoy the music.
