The Paganini external clock takes over the clocking function from the DAC, to supply Master Clock control to all dCS components, for a valuable jump in the timing of music.
Musicians play together better and the performance takes on a greater precision – more "live" – as though they've been playing together all their lives. The performance is simply more involving – perhaps hard to accept in words but immediately obvious when listening.
The USB input provides an ideal way to play high-resolution recordings from an external hard disc or computer, accepting signals up to 24/192.
The Master Clock will also control any other non-dCS components in the system that have industry standard clock inputs.
