Hi Jeffery,

that is no problem.
But dont forget that the XO needs a perfect clean +5V line to keep a low jitter clock output signal.

The build in LM1084 should be swapped to a good shunt regulator. Therefore you could use an external or the plug in version from Guido here.

BTW for this kinda mod can it be applies and implemented to every digital devices with a XO like a CDP or maybe a DAC board or any usb converter?

Regarding you USB isolator is it necessary to runs it with a Independent shunts?
Sure you could apply Guidos XO in every CDP or DAC. You find all needed informations on his Tentlabs webside.

The USB-Isolator runs with the same shunt as the X2.



What i am thinking about is to cancel the onboard LC-Filter on the X2.

This is for the standard TCXO and i dont want to go back.

Oppsss

Sorry Oliver, maybe I've said it wrongly. I beg your pardon.. What I mean from my question previously is that does the additional RF choke and decoupling cap for the XO really help improve the sound for each digital devices with XO?

So is this means that X2 and the USB-Isolator sharing the same shunt OR X2 and the USB-Isolator has its own shunt each...sorry for this confusing part

The additional RF choke and decoupling cap for the XO is recommended by Tentlabs and comes with the order.

The X2 and the USB-Isolator sharing the same shunt!

Thanks Oliver.

This might be a good cheap M2Tech hi Face replacement for me. Can't wait to do this....

Thanks Oliver, but this board request 12V-1A, and I can't find anyplace to purchase Tentlab XO in both Taiwan and China, so I think I have to give up, but I want keep seeing your great work, maybe I can learn something from you in the future, thanks again.

Jefery,

your pcb works with +5V (LM1084-5 output = +5V).

What would be interesting is the needed current. BTW, never ever 1A!
Measure the current. If it is under 80mA, you could use the Tentlab plugin shunt.
If its more, you could use quanghaos Salas shunt here.

I am sure Guido Tent ships also to Taiwan

Why don't you order from Tentlab directly?
