Each digital component processes digital signals using a different clock (timing), which causes slight signal misalignment, known as jitter when transmitting the audio data. This jitter distortion results in a decreased feeling of realism in the music. In the case of 192kHz/24bit audio, even a slight amount of jitter is a factor that cannot be overlooked. This means that a high degree of precision is required between the Head Unit, which sends the digital music data, and the DSP Amplifier, which receives the data and performs the sound tuning. The Alpine Status system uses an extremely high precision clock, having the same high specifications as top-grade home audio components, for both the Head Unit and the DSP Amplifier, ensuring the most compatible and accurate data transmission.
