Guido Tent tell me that I have to change the XO at 8.42 MHz with a one with double frequency. I don' t understand; he says that certain dac don't lock the lower frequency,
but why the CDPRO without the XO3 lock , and with it don't? The frequency it's the same!
Can you tell me why?

Today I mounted the Tent's module and the BII lock perfectly. I put a pulse transformer (Lundhal) at the BII' input, and this improved sensibly the sound. I like very much the definition , the sense of air and the soundstage.Also the bass have more extension.
I don't like the percussive bass,i.e. the drums. They lack impact and autority.Probably putting some capacitors between Placid and BII , I can solve the problem.

Hello Orelli

Given that the Buffalo reclocks on its own, how much difference do you think that the Tentlabs XO3 makes to your system?

It appears that you have used it with the clock, and without?

I am about to start a build with Buffalo II and a Cambridge Audio CD500SE. I have a Tentlabs XO3.2, but I am wondering whether to leave it out.

Your experience would be appreciated.

I suggest that XO3 is better than the direct Spdif output. I tried the CDPRO directly, and via the XO3 and the later is better. The XO3.2 is even better, cause it have the shunt PS. I like very much the pulse transformer at the input.

best, orelli
