The Micro Clock MKIII is a significant redesign of its predecessor, the Micro Clock MKII. Core technological improvements include lower-jitter crystal oscillators, higher-quality galvanic transformer isolation in the signal path, dedicated output drivers with better isolation, higher-precision signal division, and much heavier noise filtration throughout the circuit. All of this results in a more robust, lower-jitter clock signal than the Micro Clock MKII, with even more desirable harmonics in the clock’s spectral band that impart an undeniable musical quality to the conversion process. The feature set has expanded to include an LED frequency display, six BNC outputs capable of up to 384kHz, AES and RCA S/PDIF outputs capable of up to 192kHz, an optical S/PDIF output capable of up to 96kHz, and removable rack ears.

Power: engage to turn unit on, disengage to turn unit off
Display Contrast: engage to dim display, disengage to brighten display
Frequency (kHz): rotate three clicks at a moderate speed to unlock and cycle through output frequencies as indicated on the display

BNC Out: 5V, 75O output; termination is optional (44.1kHz – 384kHz)
S/PDIF Out: unbalanced RCA output (44.1kHz – 192kHz)
Optical Out: optical S/PDIF output; does not support ADAT (44.1kHz – 96kHz)
AES Out: balanced XLR output (44.1kHz – 192kHz)
DC In: 9VDC center pin positive, input jack
