The Meridian Ultra DAC is the only Meridian product that has a dedicated clock card to ensure the lowest possible jitter. Alongside FIFO buffering, all jitter is folded down below 0.5Hz. As well as reducing jitter, this dedicated high current clock design also reduces low phase noise.
The Ultra DAC is the first Meridian product to feature Dual Mono DAC cards. This provides absolute stability for each of the two DACs so that each one can perform optimally. There is no interference between the two as their power supplies are isolated from one another. This is also complimented by complete isolation on the back end.
