INTRODUCTION

The Inviolable Trinity of Digital Audio

The warm 'distortion' effects created through analog outboard equipment and digital emulation to create glaring high ends and ground yielding low ends were previously considered unachievable using other methods.
For digital sound production studios, there are three components with no margin for distortion: The monitor system, power supply, and master clock. The Everest 701 - True Audio Master Clock helps create an ideal master clock environment, providing the perfect audio reference clock environment that will likely be considered the de facto standard for many generations to come.

Bringing an End to the "Analog/Digital War"

The Everest 701 - True Audio Master Clock pushes the boundaries of digital sound production into sublime territories. It is now a well-known fact that the quality of the master clock has a certain significance in influencing the quality of both analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion. Furthermore, audio reproduction has recently been making strides in the development of advanced oscillators, together with enhancements in jitter reduction technologies and sound colouration methods. Unfortunately, none of these advancements have been able to make any essential breakthroughs - A disappointing result when considering digital audio was initially expected to quickly become the ideal method moving forward. The Everest 701 - True Audio Master Clock was created to cease the analog/digital war that has continued over three decades, by eliminating all issues related to information loss caused by imperfect clock technology, and to become the pioneer of a brand-new era in digital audio.

The Final Master Clock for Digital Audio

Abendrot's unique analog designing methods have been developed through the thorough application of True Audio Master Clock technology. Abendrot supplies a theoretically perfect time axis of digital audio, ADSR reproduction, and transparent sound field for analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion. According to the well-known sine wave in time-amplitude diagram that describes the fundamental idea of digital audio theory, it is vital to flawlessly reproduce not only the amplitude axis but also the time axis to be absolutely in sync with actual time flow. While timing defects of analog audio usually caused by uneven rotation of tape reels and vinyls produce subtle modulations often positively categorised as "analog warmth", timing defects in digital audio not only result in sound modulation but also the loss of critical information such as phasing. Once lost, this information can never be recovered regardless of jitter-reduction technology. The Everest 701 - True Audio Master Clock is the only master clock that realises a time axis in sync with reality, and thus can stake claim to being the only audio master clock in the world with information loss-free analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion.


OVERVIEW

A Master Clock for Audio Professionals

The Everest 701 - True Audio Master Clock is the apex of next-generation master clock products, engineered to promise perfect analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion. This product steps into uncharted territories as it completely eliminates any digital information loss caused by clock timing defects and imbalance in phasing information. The Everest 701 - True Audio Master Clock has been designed and developed with the quality and reliability worthy of being considered the fundamental pinnacle for audio professionals of the 21st Century.

True Audio Master Clock

Abendrot's Master Clock is a culmination of the expertise and dedication of professionals from various fields, all united under the goal of creating the ultimate results in digital master clock technology. This masterpiece truly realises a theoretically perfect time axis without any unnatural enhancements or distortion typically seen in other "high-precision" units. Experts from the field of clock technology worked with experts in both the analog and digital audio technology to bring to you the most precise and sophisticated results possible.

Word Clock Distributer

One of the highlights of the Everest 701- True Audio Master Clock is its highly precise Word Clock Distributer with a newly designed six-channel output. The Word Clock Distributer adopts a hybrid composite circuit configuration that combines Abendrot's unique frequency divider and PLL circuit; a configuration considered the ideal solution in materialising whiteboard logic into actual implementation. As a result, this device can transform any given sample rate to a Word Clock signal output without deteriorating the transparency of the generator.

Chassis

The Everest 701 - True Audio Master Clock is equipped with a master generator and Word Clock Distributer that eliminates noise and magnetic interference, and adopts layer designing technology with full consideration to thermal design, to ensure true quality and long-term operational reliability despite its compact 2U rack size.

10M Reference Output and W/C Distr. Deactive Switch

The 10M Reference output and W/C Distr. Deactive Switch have been installed to enable the provision of Abendrot's generator signal to a master clock distributer with a 10M input and video/audio synchronisation function for broadcasting or post-production. The adoption of an independent W/C Distr. Deactive Switch also allows for Abendrot's Everest 701 - True Audio Master Clock to purely operate as a 10M clock generator.
