Topic: Clock question (knowledge base)
I have a question about clock, knowledge based, not exactly about the RME DAC.
My understanding, a CD or a piece of music file contains infomation of bit rate and sampling frequency, so a DAC reads it and the clock will adjust and lock/ sync it to make a precise reference thus prevent jitter.
Some of my friends suggest to have a re-clocker with a 1G clock to make sure the incoming signal re-clock to higher precision, washing out every possible jitter, they recommend a German brand name ( I do not name it here without permission), which is without a DAC chip inside. What they describe is when a source, for e.g. from a CD transport is not stable, so the re-clocker rebuilds it and then send to a separate DAC for decoding.
What I feel, those re-clocker are for professional use (could be recording?), I am not sure if it is for recording purpose or not, but why someone need this? The RME DAC is for D/A conversion and has a very precise clock.
Are those HiFi nerds doing something unrealistic by clocking twice? clocking twice will have no benifits at all or even worse?
