Damn. Now I need an atomic clock for my 'studio'


It's not often that a Harmony Central headline makes me think anything but 'Oh'. Then along comes: "Antelope Audio Launches The Isochrone 10M Affordable Atomic Clocking Device" They go on to say: "At the heart of the Isochrone 10M is the chemical element rubidium, which thanks to the hyperfine structure of rubidium's energy levels produces a clock that is 100,000 times more stable than crystal oscillators." Because, you know, the only thing that's really wrong with my music is that my sample clocking is totally off. Anyway, perhaps this Wharton clock is a bit more what I'm looking for...

audiophiles deserve the cancer
 
what? no nixie tubes? meh.
 
they need to incorporate some nano technology and quantum computer chips into this bitch before i would even think about buying one
 
deh-deh-dehr-dehrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

deh-deh-dehr-deheeeeeeeeeee dehaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

(by the way, that's me singing the intro to 'atomic' by blondie...)
 
This would be good enough for my timing.
 
You a great looking blog here.You got to watch this video.
Asian are FuNNY!!HaHa
 
Mr J L Smith, that was a highly amusing comment there, son.
cluedos [er... is that the word?].
 
i call vaporware,the photo for that press release is the photo for their OSX-V master wordclock.they didnt even take the time to photoshop "10M" over the "OSX-V"LOL!
 
smith, you made me literally laugh out loud
 
I know I am ignorant about the elements, but why does the name rubidium remind me of the word RUBE?
 
Rubidium crystals are a key component of the subdermal transponders injected into Capt. James T. Kirk and Cmdr. Spock before they beam down to the surface of Ekos in the Star Trek episode "Patterns of Force".
 
I thought the candle was the best post until star trek.
 
Music with this device = hit song, wealth, fame

Music without this device = homelessness, despair and bad teeth
 
Antelope has a picture of the 10M on their website. As for the vaporware suggestion, NIST unveiled a chip-scale atomic clock that draws <75 mW three years ago; commercialization was (and is) one of the main goals of their program.
 
In the future, they'll say that it was the slight inconsistencies in early 20th century sample clocking that gave our digital music its folksy human warmth.
