Default LC Audio XO clock type 1

Hello!
I am offered an LC Audio clock type 1 (type 1, because it seems they have a XO2 out now) with the power supply for less than $100.
Is it a good buy?
Cheers,
Tom

I suggest you do a search for Elso Kwak's clock. He will email you the schematics for private use.

His design was optimized in listening tests and is supposed to beat even the new revision of the LCAudio clock. It can be built for much less than $ 100!

Hello!
Yes, I have been in touch with Elso, too, and he kindly sent me info.
The clock is very cheap and good I have heard, but I need a decent power supply, too, as the Marantz CD63 is said to be quite dirty.
Cheers,
Tom

A decent voltage regulator is part of Elso's schematic.

Adding a small separate transformer, rectifier and filtering caps instead of using your CD player's internal power supply would be the superior solution.

Connect the separate power supply's ground to your CD players ground near the clock input and make sure you never run the CD player without the clock signal.

You could also try supplying the clock circuit from batteries, but opinions about this concept differ.
