Ultra-Performance Word Clock: Scientific Precision for Audiophiles

“Stand-Alone” Word Clocks are the Final Frontier of system enhancement, providing audio and network performance upgrades attainable in no other way. Silent Angel created the Genesis GX to be the ultimate audiophile Word Clock: take your system to the next level with Genesis!

Ultimate Performance and Ultimate Versatility

Genesis GX is a true, state-of-the-art word clock whose technology was developed for the most demanding Scientific and Instrumentation applications, where high-performance clocks routinely cost tens of thousands of dollars. The value-engineered Genesis GX delivers this rarified level of performance and precision for a fraction of the price. Four for the price of one: Genesis GX features FOUR individual Word Clocks, including two state-of-the-art, 25 MHz units. All four clock units are critically spaced and electrically isolated to eliminate interference and noise. By incorporating four discrete Word Clocks in a single, optimized enclosure, Genesis GX offers value unmatched by any audiophile Word Clock, another reason why Genesis GX is your Digital Destiny!

Unique and Advanced Designs

  • FOUR independent, 25MHz and 10MHz Word Clocks with gold-plated output connectors housed in a single, optimized chassis.
  • Each clock unit includes its own TCXO clock and circuitry to eliminate potential signal interference.
  • Class-leading Radar-Grade switching power supply module, a technology exclusive to noise-sensitive acoustic equipment, provides a stable, low-ripple-noise power source.
  • TCXO (Temperature Compensation Crystal Oscillator) clock circuits greatly lower network latency issues and jitter effects.
  • State-of-the-Art chassis design combines of two layers of different, carefully chosen materials: the inner layer is galvanized steel while the outer layer is thick, high-quality aluminum alloy. This extravagant construction maximizes shielding and control of eddy currents while damping vibration and noise. Sleek modern design adds great aesthetic appeal, making Genesis GX a functional work of audio art.

Advanced Options for Serious Audiophiles

  • 12V DC power jack bypasses Genesis’ internal switching power module, enabling connection to an external linear power supply (such as our Forester F2) for a significant performance upgrade.
  • Gold-plated ground connection terminal offers the potential for further noise reduction.

Vibration Damping Isolators

Crafted of solid, high purity stainless steel, Silent Angel’s Resonance Control Feet damp mechanical energy from both internal and external sources, reducing mechanical and electrical noise, static electricity, etc. A more capable version of our acclaimed S28 Footer, the result is improved dynamics, lower noise floor and an increased resolution of fine detail.

Radar Grade Switching Power

Class-leading internal Power Module supports highly accurate system function

Noise Reduction

Our highly permeable, critically positioned EMI absorber eliminates electrical noise

Gilded Output Ports

Deliver the purest and most stable signal to your devices with richly gold-plated connectors

Gold Plated Grounding Terminal

Offers dedicated connection to ground for potential power noise reduction

Multiple Word Clock Outputs

Each clock circuit is completely discrete: four Ultra-Performance Word Clocks for the price of one!

TCXO – Clock Signal

Supremely accurate clocks minimize network latency issues and jitter

25MHz: Born for Audio Excellence

10MHz is the most common Word Clock frequency at the present time; however, this frequency was initially chosen for GPS equipment and not optimized for audio. After exhaustive testing, our R&D team discovered that the ideal frequency for audio and networking devices is 25MHz. Silent Angel created Genesis GX with a single goal: to deliver the best audio quality possible. Genesis GX provides both 25MHz and 10MHz word clock outputs to excel with Silent Angel products as well as other brands. Simply stated, Genesis GX is at once the finest Word Clock on the market and your best value-for-money system upgrade, as well!

Better Than “Built-in”

Compared with “Stand-alone” word clocks, built-in word clocks share system resources (power supplies, etc.) with other components, all interconnected on the same circuit board. There are many situations that will interfere with the clock signal, such as electrical pulses caused by changes in system loading, interference with other electronic components, noise from the network and jitter effects caused by the system. That’s why a stand-alone word clock source is essential: less interference to the clock source ensures the purest clock signal possible.

Designed for Audiophiles

Exclusive TCXO Clock Modules: Silent Angel’s TCXO (Temperature Compensation Crystal Oscillator) is more precise and stable than the Crystal Clocks found in competing products, lowering latency issues and jitter effects.

Further Upgrades

  • Power Source
    Connect Genesis GX to Silent Angel’s Forester F2 linear power supply (offering dual 12 volt DC outputs) to further improve power delivery, stability and sound quality.
  • Audiophile Network Switch
    Genesis GX matches perfectly with Silent Angel’s “Audio-grade” network switches Bonn NX and N8 Pro.
