Antelope Audio Isochrone DA Master Clock Distributor
The Isochrone DA is a new, unprecedented approach to clock distribution. As digital technology proliferates, clock distribution is more critical than ever, and the DA is the definitive solution. Designed to provide far more than clock distribution, the DA's unique regeneration technology will both synchronize the studio with unmatchable precision, and also make connected devices sound better than anyone thought possible. The Isochrone DA was created to benefit any studio, not just ones that need more clock outputs.

IMPROVED SOUND AND STABILITY WITH CLOCK REGENERATION
Other Clock Distributors simply amplify the outgoing clock signal, redistributing unstable, jitter polluted clock throughout the studio. This process introduces additional jitter to the signal as well, making it an overall poor way to address sync distribution.
The Isochrone DA approaches distribution in an entirely different way, circumventing the flawed amplification approach used by other devices. With Antelope's exclusive clock regeneration process, the DA distributes signal that is vastly superior to the source. This low jitter signal stabilizes the entire studio, and connected gear will experience significant improvements in sound quality.
ANTELOPES JITTER MANAGEMENT MODULE
Jitter free operation is critical in the modern studio. Jitter comes from countless sources, and one weak link will contaminate every component in the facility. Antelope's Jitter Management module guarantees there are no weak links, rendering jitter virtually nonexistent. The Jitter Management Module takes Adaptive Loop Filtering to the next level by using a sophisticated DSP Based Multistage IIR filter, guaranteeing the purest most stable clock possible.
ACOUSTICALLY FOCUSED CLOCKING, THE NEXT GENERATION OF DDS TECHNOLOGY.
The DA's amazing sound is achieved through Antelope's exclusive Acoustically Focused Clocking technology. AFC is the next generation of DDS, a technology introduced over ten years ago by Isochrone engineer Igor Levin with his ground breaking Aardsync. The AardSync was immediately recognized as the best sounding clock in the industry. Its successor, the AardsyncII, received even greater acclaim. This extraordinary technology continued developing, culminating in the 3rd generation of DDS technology, AFC.
DESIGNED TO IMPROVE ANY EXISTING MASTER CLOCK
Typically, a clock distributor is not added to the studio until there's a shortage of clock outputs, but the Isochrone DA is an immediate asset, regardless of situation. Adding an Isochrone DA is the easiest way to upgrade your existing master clock, allowing it to achieve the high levels or performance found only in Isochrone clocking hardware. Even the most high end master clocks will exhibit noticeable improvement as a result of adding the DA.
THE ONLY PROFESSIONAL WAY TO GET CLOCK FROM AUDIO SIGNAL
Unlike other clock distributors, the Isochrone DA is not limited in the devices it can accommodate as master clock. In many situations, the converter is also the ideal master clock source. Clock embedded in an AES/EBU or S/PDIF signal is distributed in a range of formats, all enhanced by Antel
