When I try to apply clock from 2882 to some external devices, they don't like the clock signal. I think it has something to do with the symmetry of the clock re ground. Is there a fix for this?

As an aside to my question, I just took my 2882 out of storage and am listening to it as a D-A for my mix and master studio. I'd forgotten how good it sounds.

Which external device?

The 2882 provides a pretty standard WC output: Ground referenced 5v square wave, with a 75 Ohm output impedance. When terminated by a 75 Ohm terminator, the receiving device should get a 2.5v square wave.

Glad that you are still digging your 2882!

It's a Sony CDP-D500 pro CD player. Found often in broadcast studios and mastering rooms. This player works from other clocks.

For today, I'm routing the 2882 clock through an RME interface, then on to the CD player. Not a good solution, but it works. Wondering if a transformer would help, or if there is any change in clock out if I get the 3D upgrade?
