    Introducing the Aurender MC20 Reference Master / Word Clock

    Often considered the final step on the path towards digital audio perfection, master / word clocks can have the ability to elevate music from the merely great to the truly exceptional. A master clocks job is to become the conductor of the digital devices connected and to synchronize them into one pulse entity. The results of this simple, yet complicated act, results in dramatically lower jitter in the time domain and phase noise in the frequency domain. The sonic benefits of doing so are nuanced, yet recognizable as the music takes on more textural spatial layering and dimensionally. The soundstage is collected, solidified, and more focused with highly defined imaging pinpointing the location of each instrument. Reverb trails are more evident and audible with overall coherency, tempo and pacing greatly improved. While an expensive addition to any reference audio system, the magnificent MC20 represents a milestone in the advancement of fidelity and musicality in digital audio reproduction, pushing the boundaries beyond what was thought possible.

    Specific Innovations

    The 10MHz Rubidium-based clock module is user installed within a shock-mounted and shielded chamber designed to eliminate spurious RFI, EMI and external vibrations from interfering with the accurate operation of the clock. The module is packaged separately within the main carton to provide a safe transportation environment for this delicate and high-precision sub-assembly.
    Connectivity options expanded to accommodate both 50- and 75-ohm sources for assured compatibility when connected to any of the eight isolated BNC clock outputs.
    Exceptional build quality throughout using the highest precision and matched component parts.
    Ultra-low noise linear power supplies for each section with built-in power filtering.
    Key Functions

    Simultaneously supply of a 10MHz master clock reference signal to multiple source devices such as an Aurender music server, DACs, and even separate word clocks with 10MHz master clock reference input.
    Supply of a 10MHz master clock to source devices such as an Aurender Music Server and word clock to DAC.
    A word clock to the source device and DAC.
    The MC20 is available now at a suggested retail price of $30,000.

    Sounds like an interesting innovation, would love to hear from someone who's tried it, but at that price I would expect Aurender to do the installation. Madness!!

    Re: Aurender MC20

    Pricing of the MC20 is out of balance with the rest of Aurender's range, even the N30 streamer is around 5K less, It might give a stellar result but I doubt we are going to see many of these.
