We are pleased to announce the Perfection-10, a new 10MHz Rubidium atomic clock for audio/video professionals and demanding audiophiles. Designed by Stanford Research Systems (SRS), the Perfection-10 offers class leading performance at new low price point.
If you are considering Rubidium clocks from manufacturers such as Antelope Audio or Esoteric, or if you have previously dismissed the thought of a Rubidium master clock because of the cost, the new Perfection-10 could be just the solution for you - class leading performance at a very attractive price.
Up until now, atomic clocks marketed for audio use have been designed around commercial off-the-shelf rubidium clocks designed for the communications market-not audio. And while these rubidium clocks may have good long-term stability, they were never designed to provide low short-term jitter.
The PERF10 is built around Stanford Research Systems' own PRS10 rubidium oscillator. By designing and building the oscillators ourselves, we're able to craft an instrument perfectly matched to the demanding requirements of audio master clocks.
Starting with an oven stabilized, 3rd overtone, varactor tuned, SC-cut crystal oscillator, the PERF10 offers both the accuracy and stability associated with rubidium clocks and unmatched jitter performance - 30 db better phase noise at 10 Hz off carrier than a competing "Swiss-made" rubidium clock.
PERF10 has eight 10 MHz, 75 Ω outputs compatible with all master clocks that accept a 10 MHz reference input.
When equipped with Option 01, PERF10 can be powered solely from an 12 VDC source, or the DC and AC power sources can be connected simultaneously with the DC supply providing an automatically switched redundant power source in the event of an AC failure.
