The Scarlatti group is an incredible performer, able to play CD/SACD, high-resolution computer files and accept other digital sources with industry standard outputs.
The external clock takes over the clocking function from the DAC 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 difference means that the music simply becomes more involving – rather like a house supposedly with a wonderful view, but now you've cleaned the windows you see it for the first time.
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 components in the system that have industry standard clock inputs.
