The Micro Clock MKIII XB is the most accurate word clock we’ve developed to date. With only 0.6pS RMS of jitter at the BNC outputs, it has less than one third of the jitter of the standard Micro Clock MKIII! It boasts incredibly accurate crystal oscillators and superior quality galvanic isolation, both of which contribute to the extraordinarily low jitter measurement.
We spent the better part of a year field-testing the Micro Clock MKIII XB prior to its release, and got a lot of positive feedback on the impact it made in a wide variety of setups. Its small form factor and its ability to drive up to 1,000 feet of coaxial cable make it not only the perfect solution for improving the conversion quality of an audio interface, but also for re-clocking digital mixing consoles at live shows or houses of worship, and as the master word clock in large post-production or broadcast facilities. It can easily sync all of your digital gear together, even if it’s located in different rooms, or different buildings!

FREQUENCY (kHz): rotate three clicks at a moderate speed to unlock and cycle through output frequencies as indicated on the display
“I just got a record back from mastering that I was mixing before the clock and then got the clock half way through. The clock made a huge difference on the mixes. It almost sounds like 2 different mixers. With the clock it has so much more punch, detail and balance. I wish I would have had it on the full record.”
The Micro Clock MKIII is the culmination of almost 10 years of research involving jitter-reducing, harmonic-enhancing design techniques not found in any other master word clocks on the market. It not only can sync all of your digital audio gear together, but can significantly improve the sound quality as well. It may be the most significant single upgrade you can make to your digital audio setup. Get ready to hear what you’ve been missing!
If you'd like to upgrade a Micro Clock MKIII you already own to a Micro Clock MKIII XB, please add this upgrade to your cart (and the optional 1 year warranty add-on if you'd like).
Once you pay for the XB upgrade, you will need to fill out an RMA form to include with your standard Micro Clock MKIII, then will need to ship both items to the address on the form at your earliest convenience.
Our turnaround time on XB upgrades is typically 7-10 business days from the time we receive your unit. We will contact you when it's ready to ship back out.
The Micro Clock MKII is a simple, yet elegant design in external clocking. It features ultra-low jitter, third order crystal oscillators with a high current parallel drive circuit designed to maintain harmonic content of the signal regardless of loading conditions. In addition to this, proprietary noise reduction circuitry dramatically eliminates unwanted switching harmonics normally found in digital signals. The Micro Clock MKII is one of the best performing external word clocks in the pro audio market today.
