More interesting is to hook up a battery-powered headphone amp, to the PLL pin, on any SPDIF RX chip. Interesting..............instructive..............they may learn something.

should be anything else beside very quiet hiss & noise and very quiet whistling?

TRY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"You'll see."
"Miller, did you do a lot of acid, back in the hippie days?"
"Major Danby, sir."
"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"

I tried on CS8416.
Through lytic cap connected to battery powered portable amp with speakers. I can hear quiet crud noise and hiss, like white noise.
Should be anything else?

Maybe you should try it with some music playing.

In an unrelated event.......another guy who is going astray:

OK, maybe he can only get that brand. They are not bad, just not good. No comment on the rest of the thread.

I guess he is probably smarter than I am, since it seems he can program the TAS1020. Doesn't mean he knows what he is doing. He never answers any questions, about the code. The code is the key. As dumb as I am, even I know that!

Maybe I should point out that the jitter they are talking about usually adds to the noise floor, and not the 1/f stuff, and................

Oh, why bother. Let 'em lose sleep over something that doesn't matter a hill of beans.

"I'll blacken your Christmas,
And piss on your door.
You'll cry out for mercy,
And still there will be more!"


Jitter...............everyone worries about, and yet they don't know why they worry about it. Oy vey.

My brain hurts.

"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."

Sorry... Couldn't resist.

Well, only if there is a lot of jitter!

Right, your local university is going to have something like that, just sitting around, not being used, waiting for some audio wanker wanting to measure clock jitter.

It used to be funny. Not sure, these days.

You're telling me you can't hear the difference between a 2 pin crystal and a simple TCXO ? Then you gotta train your ears more and stop typing this stoopid comment. Bugger off if you can't be of help. I really don't need children screaming.

 :D   :D    :D     :D     :D     :D      :D     

If he only knew who the stoopid one really was!

Stuff this good....................hell, some of us try to be funny, and can not be this funny.

Adding some resistance and capacitor to remove DC offset also does not work. Am I missing something?

Yeah................a brain.

My initial quest was to salvage all parts I have and put it in an ageing player. Surely the tcxo is miles better than the 2 pin oscillator.

Surely, you jest..............

"No, and don't call me 'Shirley'."

Let's see.............2 pins...............wonder what those 2 pins could be............um.......I dunno! Please, tell us.

EARTH SHAKING DEVELOPMENT.................

Quote
Therefore it's confirmed, a tcxo fed by a 5v is suitable for a Marantz cd63.

Glad that is settled. Gee, we were all worried it could never be made to work. That would be an interesting development.

And 0.5 PPM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It has to sound good.

If you paint it black, will it have less jitter?

Yes, but RF emissions will increase, since the emissivity of black surface is greater

I see a red door, and I want it painted black.

At least one person there is not a complete idiot:

Could it possibly because he is a member, in good standing, at Greaser's Palace?

The part, that idiot is using, is so good, the folks who make it do not even have it on their website.

(Like that was really necessary. Added for the benefit of the stray reader, brought in by Google, of folks looking for Blowtorch preamp schematics.)
