General questions F.A.Q.
In general terms, try to minimize processes unless absolutely necessary, as they may do nothing to improve your performance. There are numerous guides and articles on the web providing useful information on the subject of optimizing your computer. You can also check out the "User Cases" on our Downloads section on the Antelope Audio website for guides to using your DAC with Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.
The quality of the clock is extremely important when high quality audio is desired. Oscillator accuracy is also compromised when exposed to temperature fluctuations. Housing the clock in a shielded container, or "Oven" that maintains a constant temperature, brings significant benefits to detail, dynamics, and stereo image of the audio.
Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) and Jitter Management are two critical components to improve audio via clocking. Both are precisely controlled by our 64-bit algorithm technology, resulting in smooth and detailed audio whatever the method of digital connectivity.
For further, detailed information about Jitter, please read the article entitled "Introduction to Digital Clocking".
These are some of the major points in digital audio today. Once an audio signal is transformed into the digital world, it becomes a small piece of information at a time point. By increasing the sample rate and bit depth, you also increase the pieces of information, thus resulting in a more detailed representation of the original analog signal. Bit depth describes the amount of bits of information for each sample. It is addressed directly to the resolution of each sample in digital audio data.
