Default Would Kwak-Clock also improve my Soundcard?

Hi!

I know, I could do it without asking, but at the moment I can´t imagine what improvement this clock will give me...
Is it like comparing an 4558 opamp to an OPA627?
Would the use of the computer internal power supplies decrade performance of the Kwak-Clock very much?
Please tell me in wich cathegory I can put this tweak in, I need 3 clocks to be tweaked, so it needs too many parts for me to do it only to have done it... [I hope you´ll understand what I mean]

regards,

wssi

Can't you have the Kwak clock send the clock signal output to a clock buffer/divider (e.g. CDCVF25081), which then send the buffered signal to your 3 destinations? This will probably save cost and redundancy.

Question Kwak-Clock on Soundcard

Hi Weissi,
What are the frequencies you need on the soundcard?
I have no idea how my clock reacts to a switched mode powersupply. Hopefully the PI-filter will block incoming noise from the supply.

Elso,


If I've got something (in exemple, my cd player ) that uses the clock in many chips,
at the momment, 1 chip has the cristal, outputs a buffered clock to chip 2, and chip 2 outputs a buffered clock to chip 3

can I, instead of simply changing the cristal to a Kwak-Clock, connect our clock's output to the 3 chips's clock input, at the same time?


I'm not sure my explanation is clear

what clocks? well, the Envy24 needs 24,4MHz and 22,57MHz.
the SBlive needs ??MHz.

this results in three Kwak-Clocks...

There might be more Improvement if I reroute the clock-lines, but thats to much for me (I have 2 killed Sblive´s and one killed Aureon, they suffered on to much - you know, hehe)

Does anyone have a SMD-layout for the clock - would be very nice!
