RE: Auraliti & Berkeley Audio Alpha-1 DAC

Posted by demianm on October 12, 2009 at 09:42:48:

The initial version won't support external clock. I'm looking at word clock and super clock support but those are not a good solution in practice. The core issue is controlling the clock to match the sample rate. The source knows the sample rate. If the clock originates at the DAC then the DAC somehow needs to know what sample rate to switch to. There is no standardized way to do this that I am aware of. The people I know who have tried this find its an interesting demo but don't use it for normal listening.
