Get the very best from that old (or new) CD player – here’s how:
Even today, after many years of circuit development, the sound quality of all digital audio disc players (SACD, CD, DVD) is determined by the quality of the master clock and it’s associated power supply. Of course the rest of the circuit design is extremely important, but if the quality of the clock is not up to scratch then the overall performance will suffer.
If your audio system suffers from a tiring, unfocused sound, with harsh treble and a weak bass, the cause is most likely to be high levels of jitter created by the clock in your player or transport.
Substitute the standard clock in your player now with our ‘Clock 4’ oscillator, designed for extreme performance and low jitter. This will greatly enhance the sound quality of your player to a level that competes with many of today’s high-end players.
So how do I upgrade my CD player and how much does it cost?
We have 2 cost/performance levels of clock upgrade. You can purchase the parts from us and fit them yourself, or if you prefer send your player to us and we will undertake the work for you.
Clock 2 – inexpensive but high performance:
£62.00 – Ex. VAT and Shipping

Never Connected Clock Power Supply – Either of the above Clock boards requires a power source. The better the power supply, the better the clock will function. There are 2 possible options. The first is to take power from the player’s own digital power supply, there is obviously no extra cost involved in this.
The second and best option is to fit a ‘Never Connected’ PSU. This clever ‘patented’ design eliminates mains noise entering the clock to give absolute minimum jitter:
