"The Everest 701 is quite simply astounding. All the digital equipment at the studio I use at Abbey Road is able to synchronise to the Abendrot Everest 701. The digital system when “locked” to the Everest 701 sounds much more natural. Bass notes go deeper, stereo imaging is better defined and there is more detail to the music. Really good digital master clocks can make good digital equipment sound great and can make great digital equipment sound almost like analogue. This is really useful to have in a professional studio environment." − Miles Showell, Mastering Engineer, Half-Speed Vinyl Cutting Engineer (Abbey Road Studios)

"Abendrot Everest 701 has proved a real eye-opener, allowing you to record analogue sound as analogue sound” − Sadaharu Yagi, Grammy Award Winning Recording Engineer/Producer (Limp Bizkit, Draco Rosa, Shakira)

"The Everest 701 unit made the tri-dimensional space truly happening." − Enrico 'Kikko' Sesselego (Stevie Vai, Paul Gilbert)

"To describe the effects in as short a description as possible, I would say “crisp and clear, yet rich and expansive sound of the highest quality. The results changed dramatically once I connected the Everest 701 to the equipment in the studio." − Tom Suzuki, Recording Engineer (Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Santana)

"I had goosebumps all over myself. The Everest 701 never intrudes. It never even adds a tint of its own flavor. Yet, the sound commands such a presence while enwrapping you at the same time." − Toshiharu Yamauchi, Chief Sound Engineer (Blue Note Japan)

INTRODUCTION

The Abendrot Everest 701 - True Audio Master Clock is the apex of next generation master clocks, designed and developed to bring a new era to digital audio, ceasing the analog/digital war which has continued over three decades by eliminating all issues related to information loss caused by imperfect clock technology. It is the core solution to achieving an advanced 21st century digital audio system that realises the capture, preservation, processing, transmission and reproduction capabilities at analog audio quality including equivalent ADSR and phase representation.

Conventional master clock devices in professional audio are, at their core, synchronizer products intended to synchronize digital devices. The Everest 701 is designed to provide advanced master signals between digital devices on par with analog audio. While timing defects of analog audio typically caused by uneven rotation of tape reels or vinyl records produce subtle modulations often positively categorised as "analog warmth", timing defects in digital audio only result in the loss of critical information such as phasing. Once lost, this information can never be recovered regardless of the technology. The Everest 701 is the pioneer of next-generation master clocks as it overcomes these previously unsolvable peculiar digital audio traits of information loss and phase disorder due to timing deviation, and extracts ideal performance from your digital audio system.


OVERVIEW

True Audio Master Clock Technology

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 distortions. 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.

NEW AES/EBU Output

A newly-developed AES/EBU output has been installed to the Everest 701A for the realisation of high-precision word clock transmission at long distances. Operation efficiency per unit is greatly enhance through the enabling of simultaneous word clock signal supply to systems installed at distance. (701A only)

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.
