G-02X | Master Clock Generator
The high precision G-02X master clock genenartor adopts new technologies such as "Wide Range Clock Buffer Amplifiers", "Adaptive Zero Ground" circuits, and a new custom made high-precision OCXO to attain the very best in muscial expression from your deigital audio system.
The core of the unit features a custom OCXO (Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator) newly developed by ESOTERIC that is comprised of an oven that maintains a constant internal temperature, a crystal oscillator, and an oscillating circuit. This OCXO was designed for high audio quality based on the wisdom of the Grandioso series to provide an excellent center frequency precision (±0.01 ppm Typ), and reduces phase noise by approximately 3 dB* compared to previous model.
The G-02X has the "Adaptive Zero Ground" circuitry inherited from the Grandioso G1 between the internal OCXO and the buffer amplifiers. The "Adaptive Zero Ground" mode actively drives the ground signal to 0 volts and greatly reduces noise (random jitter) caused by variation in the ground voltage. The user can select between the adaptive mode and the normal mode, for different sound characteristics according to their listening preferences.
