LEO GX.1

Auralic



UPDATED TO NEW G2.1 chassis

LEO GX is a breakthrough in digital audio system clocking — the first master clock ever that can feed a DAC directly with a working signal so precise we had to use new benchmarks to measure its performance. Wider staging, pinpoint locational accuracy, and an expanded dynamic range are just some of the benefits you’ll hear when you implement LEO GX’s one-of-a-kind approach to clocking that literally bypasses the traditional limitations of internal DAC clocks.

Get the premium LEO GX with premium cable featuring handmade and precisely tuned 60GHz bandwidth military aerospace-grade material and connectors.

The Leo GX is the ultimate reference master clock, which turns the Vega G2 into a master of timing. Infact it times so precisely that traditional benchmarks couldn’t meassure its performance!

It takes the digital signal and processes it through one of it’s two rubidium atomic clocks (one for multiples of 44.1khz, the other for multiples of 48khz) which are temperature controlled. These clocks are kept warm in a temperature controlled enclosure, and a countdown timer upon power-up indicates its warm-up time.

The signals from the processor are optically isolated from the clocks, ensuring perfect timing and noise isolation. It also uses dual Purer-Power power supplies.

"Adding the LEO GX, however, puts VEGA G2 in another league, in particular when it comes to imaging. It creates a sense of presence that is very rare with reproduced audio of any kind which, coming as it does from a self-confessed, fully paid up member of the analogue nut club, is high praise indeed."
