We achieved very good results with OCXO-clock upgrading of digital audio equipment. A customer asked ‘can you upgrade my Melco?’
Yes we can !
Melco N1 OCXO-clock upgrade €450
The clock of the melco is a smd type clock mounted at the back of the mainboard. We had to carefully un-solder the old clock. The solder paths on the mainboard are very fragile and very thin. So we had to operate very carefully.
The used OCXO-clock is a extremely precise and ultra low noise clock.

The cable from mainboard to the OCXO-clock is special made for this purpose. The cable is about 20cm long and it’s very good shielded with copper-foil. One side of the cable is ‘grounded’ and the other side is ‘floating’.
The clock needs a clean 5Vdc power supply. There are no spare 5Vdc pins on the mainboard. So we made a dedicated power supply for the OCXO-clock. Its a double-filtered dc-to-dc converter and it works fine.
And how it sounds …. ??
Yes… The OCXO-clock does the magic again; More details, more dynamics, black background, less harshness…
