Hi

Please read more here

http://www.tentlabs.com/ProductEntit...AC/XO-DAC.html

the whole system consists of a 3rd order PLL with lowpass at about 1 Hz.

Thanks Guido for the explanations!!!

So, this way, XO in XO-DAC , and VCXO in XO-3, by using TentLink mode, the jitter will be lowest possible?

Any diiference in ammount of jitter because of use VCXO on 16.9344MHz compared with VCHO of 11.2896 MHz in CDP?

Hi

Yes, lowest possible, as the free running oscillator (XO) is located at the DAC.

There is no difference in jitter between these 2 freqs.

Hi, Are you talking about Slave and Master Mode? I am still not clear about this mode. Can you tell me what to connect where? I could understand that XO3.2 will be located in DAC and XODAC will be located in Transport. How these will be wired?Any change in the jumper setting? How the DAC and the Transport will be connected?

In your case:
- XO3.2 stays in transport, a 16.9344 MHz VCXO will be placed instead of a 16.9344 MHz XO
- XO-DAC stays in DAC, an 11.2896 MHz XO will be place instead of an 11.2896MHz VCXO
- Jumpers J10/J11 will be placed vertically, as indicated on the board
- Tentlink connects between XO3.2 and XO-DAC

best

Hi,
Has anyone used master and slave config using XO3.2 and XODAC? Can someone draw a simple wiring diagram for me?

Do you mean connection will be made between XO3.2 and XODAC thru Tent LInk ( marked on each board) what will be the internal connection for the new boards in each of the devices ( AN DAC and Tentlab Transport)?

You connect the XO3.2 in the transport to the XODAC in the dac with the "additional" link called the Tent Link. You still need the SPDIF connection.
What is important is that you swap the XO can in the XO3.2 to a VCXO can of the same frequency. In the XODac, you swap the VCXO for an XO of the same frequency.

I assume you have already connected the XO3.2 to your cd transport and the XODac to your dac. If you have and these devices are already working, there is nothing else to do but to change the position of J10 and J11 jumpers on the XoDac board. If you have not installed the devices into your equipment, download the instructions from the Tent website.

Thanx for your reply. I have installed XO 3.2 WITH 16.9344 Mhz in the CD transport and XODAC with 11.2896 Mhz in the AN DAC and the CD player as well as my AN L4.1 DAC is working fine.
I want to upgrade to slave /master configuration. Do I need to connect Tentlink of XODAC to Tentlink of XO.3.2 of the new setup? Any further connection to be made in the DAC (cLK IN OR cLK4 OUT, spdif out to the digital convertor board - other than power supply to XO supply) and any further connection in the Transport unit for the new new XODAC (CLK IN, clk 4 out) or the Philips Transport. the power to be drawn from XO Supply.

Do you mean that slave/master config is just a matter of interchanging the VCXO with XO and connecting the TentLink? Then why did I go for another set of XODAC and XO 3.2?
