Ultra Jitter-Free PLL Circuit

For the purpose of synchronizing operation of the
D/A converter with the digital audio interface (DAI),
a phase-locked loop (PLL) circuit is used which
generates a master clock to be used as a system
reference. As shown in the diagram. the Ultra Jit-
ter—Free PLL Circuit of the DC-3OO consists of a
preamble detector and a voltage-controlled 05-

master clock produced by this PLL circuit is totally
free from the effects of pulse distortion and jitter,

High-Precision Sampling Frequency Converter
A sampling frequency conv
verter (SFC) is available to
transform the sampling fre—
quency of digital input sig-
nals to the desired value. In
the 00-300, the sampling
frequency is arithmetically

to the 48 kHz level | signal. The highly precise quartz
oscillator used for this conversion assures flawless
and virtually jitter-free performance.

ZO-Bit, B-Times Oversampling Digital Filter
Moving unwanted sampling frequency remnants
(also called aliasing components) far outside the au—

dible range is the task of an oversampling digital
filterl The NPC (Nihon Precision Circuit) digital fi|~

Accuphase. offers
state-of-the-art charac-
teristics in all vital as-
pects, such as absence
of group delay, passband ripple, and attenuation,
approaching the theoretical performance limits.

4-Pole Analog Filter With Hand-Selected Com-

To reduce noise in the upper frequency range and
achieve high S/N ratio, a 4-pole Butterworth de-
sign is used for analog filtering. The active iilter
allows optimizing of the cutoff point, to keep phase
shifts in the passband range at an absolute mini-
mum. Strict selection of all filter components as-
sures sonic purity and total musical accuracy.
