dCS Paganini DAC and CD players also available at the time of listing.

USB has numerous modes for synchronising the audio between a host computer and an audio device such as a DAC. ‘Adaptive’ is the most popular of these, and involves the audio device synchronising itself to the USB ‘frame’ provided by the computer. However, this tends to give poor jitter performance so Puccini U-Clock operates in asynchronous mode, where the audio device synchronises the audio by providing a feedback pipe to the computer. The computer is effectively locked to the audio device, which then benefits from a much more accurate clock for dramatically lower jitter. USB is isochronous, which means that the host (PC) and client (Puccini U-Clock) both know how much bandwidth is available at the outset, so the host can guarantee that bandwidth will be available all the time.
