  1 kHz Oscillator
The Vienna bridges 1 kHz Oscillator has distortion attenuation of at least 60 dB and a balanced and floating output with very low internal resistance.
The 1 kHz oscillator can thereby be used as a central level audio generator, because the level remains constant independent of the number of output feeds.
The 1 kHz oscillator has three outputs; output 1 always sends a signal when the switch OSC-ON is turned on, output 2 sends a signal if, in addition, the switch OUTPUT-ON is operated, and output 3 sends a -60dBu or -9dB/-3dBu adjusted signal.

 There's life above 20 kilohertz! A survey of musical instrument spectra to 102.4 kHz
If the 50 kHz peak were found to be at the 0.1% level, that is, 60 dB below the 25 kHz peak, then it might be due to distortion—if the distortion were indeed as high as 0.1%.
After the convolution, the point at 20 kHz was indeed raised to -12 dB relative to the constant spectrum, but points at higher frequencies were at -150 dB, indistinguishable from the computation noise.
The grid-on and grid-off random-incidence responses of the BandK 4135 differ by 3 dB at 30 kHz, 4 dB at 40 kHz, 1½ dB at 50 kHz and presumably by substantial amounts at higher frequencies, where the calibration of one of the curves is not known (that is, not supplied by the manufacturer).

MSTL's 600 kHz towfish is easy to use by even first time side scan sonar operators.
The higher resolution 900 and 1200 kHz towfish should be considered as professional instruments designed for specific applications demanding the highest resolutions.
While several of our very satisfied customers will disagree, MSTL does not believe 900 and 1200 kHz towfish are the best choice for general search applications.

 Definition of 500 KHz
For most of the 20th century, the radio frequency 500 kHz (known as 600 meters or 500 kc for most of the century, before kilohertz replaced kilocycle) was the international calling and distress frequency for ships on the high seas.
Detailed procedures for use of 500 kHz were specified by the 1932 Madrid Radio Conference, but its use dates back to Marconi's first transatlantic radio transmission.
The nearby frequencies of 518 kHz and 490 kHz are used for the Navtex component of GMDSS.

 Radio Broadcast Signals
Carrier frequencies of 540 to 1600 kHz are assigned at 10 kHz intervals.
These FM stations have a 75 kHz maximum deviation from the center frequency, which leaves 25 kHz upper and lower "gaurd bands" to minimize interaction with the adjacent frequency band.
A 38 kHz subcarrier also modulates the carrier, and that subcarrier is modulated with the difference, L- R, of the audio signals.

For the 12.5 kHz interferer, the peak amplitude of the VSN signal from the cassette tape was matched as closely as possible to the amplitude of a 1 kHz tone that would produce a 1.5 kHz signal deviation.
The receiver of the 25 kHz radio (configured as a mobile) being tested on board the boat was tuned to marine channel 87 and connected to a whip antenna.
The 12.5 kHz interferer radio (configured as a base) was located in a car on the boat dock (approximately 2 miles from the boat) and was tuned to either adjacent interstitial channel 287 or 227.

 LIFE BEYOND 20 KHZ
When I looked closely at their response beyond 20 kHz they were visibly different.
There is a sharp boundary at the beginning and end of each positive pressure pulse group, approximately at the central axis of the pressure wave.
This standard is beyond the capabilities of modern systems, but it is important that we understand the degradation of perceived sound quality resulting from compromises made in today's sound-delivery systems.

 Compact Disc Digital Audio History and 20 kHz lowpass filtering
As the frequency of an incoming signal increases, the shorter period will be represented by fewer samples, until, at 20 kHz, the reproduced waveform is represented as a square wave.
In order to eliminate these types of higher-frequency output distortions and to preserve the lossless nature of sampling, another low-pass filter is placed at the output of the device.
Video was the digital audio storage medium before we had CD, and the rate of 44.1 is a logical result of that and the need for a safe rate that could include up to 20kHz, which was considered to be the human threshold of hearing back then.

 NTIA TR-97-343, Assessment of Compatibility Between 25 and 12.5 kHz Channelized Marine VHF Radios
The 25 kHz channelized radios will be referred to as wideband radios and the 12.5 kHz radios will be referred to as narrowband radios for the remainder of this report.
For example, receiver A (a 25 kHz radio) in Table A-2 required an interference power of -97 dBm to degrade the SINAD from 15 to 12 dB when the narrowband interferer was off-tuned -12.5 kHz from the desired signal and -99 dBm for +12.5 kHz off-tuning.
Receiver C (a 12.5 kHz radio) in Table A-7 required an interference power of -86 dBm to degrade the SINAD from 15 to 12 dB for a wideband interferer off-tuned -12.5 kHz and -82 dBm for 12.5 kHz off-tuning.

Since the PLL operates with a 10 Khz reference, this should allow allow a 10 Khz channel spacing.
A 20 Khz channel spacing may be obtained by simply cutting a single diode.
This seems to work OK but you may get some strange frequencies unless you remember to actuate the switch only when you are on an even 100 Khz channel.

 Lukens Tests 96 kHz Superiority   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Any difference between 96 kHz and 48 kHz would go undetected by ordinary mics because there would be no ultrasonic information for the 96 kHz signal to capture.
The 1.5 Hz to 500 kHz flat-frequency response of the True Systems Precision 8 mic preamplifier was important to the demo for the same reason.
The 96 kHz signal sounded digital, but it was much closer to analog than the 48 kHz signal.

 96 Khz vs. 192 Khz DAC's
A signal that was originally sampled at 192 kHz should be faithful to the original up to 96 kHz.
The only signals that are 96 kHz or greater are the hi-res tracks from dvd-a or sacd and dts 96/24.
If you play a cd (44.1 kHz) or dvd-v (48 kHz) it won't matter if the dac is 96 kHz or 192 kHz UNLESS the receiver upsamples to that rate before the digital to analog conversion.

ll Omni VI versions have a 15 KHz bandwidth, two-pole crystal filter as the 1st filter in the 9 MHz I.F. This filter is in the receive signal path at all times for all modes.
The next filter in the Omni VI is a 2.4 KHz bandwidth 8 pole crystal filter, also in the 9 MHz I.F. It is always in both the TX and RX signal path for all modes except FM.
When you select one of these filters it is cascaded with the 2.4 KHz, 8 pole filter and the 15 KHz, 2 pole filter mentioned above.

 Digital Pro Sound
This is obviously undesirable, and as a result, digital systems from time immemorial (well, the last 30 years, anyway) have included anti-imaging and anti-aliasing filters to stop this very problem.
This makes their rolloffs very steep, and if implemented in the analog domain, as early ones were, they introduced enormous phase shifts into the audio — 1000 degrees out at 10 kHz was not uncommon.
Plenty of acoustic instruments produce usable output up to around the 30 kHz mark — something that would be picked up in some form by a decent 30 in/s half-inch analog recording.

 kHz - a Whatis.com definition
An AC signal having a frequency of 1 kHz is within the range of human hearing.
, equal to 1,000,000 Hz or 1,000 kHz, and the GHz, equal to 1,000,000,000 Hz or 1,000,000 kHz.
But the bandwidth is generally much smaller, because it depends on variations in the individual data characters, not on the number of data bits per unit time.

 Introduction
For Steve, the arrival of the first RSGB 136 kHz repeater on 10th October 2001, located in southern England, took away the main attraction of the band.
The new 136 kHz band presented an opportunity to build an amateur radio station for a band where there was very little commercial equipment available.
Since those early days on 136 kHz, the sharing of ideas and test results has enabled a small, but growing number of LF enthusiasts to generate greater power levels on transmit; improve the reception of weak signals; and increase the efficiency of their antennas.

 Hydrogenaudio Forums -> 48, 44.1 khz, why no and/or not 40 khz
The sampling rate of 44.1 KHz came to be that of the Compact Disc.
The 44.1 Khz sample rate is used in Mp3s and such because most of them are ripped from CDs and resampling is was not as good as it is today (Not too good still)..
The sampling frequency must be at least twice as high as the highest frequency that you wish to reproduce because you must have at least 1 data point for each half cycle of the audio waveform.

 So, What's the real story on APCO-25?
In essence, APCO-25 defines a standard for migrating from the current bandwidth of 25 kHz to a reduced bandwidth of 6.25 kHz with an intermediate step at 12.5 kHz (this is known as narrow band).
Purchase of a 12.5 kHz capable radio today meets both FCC, and APCO Phase 1 requirements from which DHS has scripted their loosely worded requirement for should be APCO-25 compatible.
In summary, 12.5 kHz equipment meets Phase 1 APCO-25 standards and is fully compliant with FEMA and DHS grant requirements.

 ABIT USA Forums - Switching SPDIF out to 44.1 kHz sample rate?
You need to first capture your audio at 48.0 kHz via the SPDIF interface, then resample the captured audio using a sound editing program such as Sound Forge or Cool Edit Pro.
It is incorrect to assume that if I send the 44.1 kHz wave to the SPDIF out, it will be output in 44.1 sample rate.
So yes, when you take 44.1 kHz audio ripped from CD and 'play' it to your minidisc recorder through the SPDIF interface, the audio is resampled into 48.0 kHz - and there might not be anything you can do about that (again - check your manual and I'll do the same later on).

 Radio   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Because of their varying characteristics, radio waves of different lengths are employed for different purposes but are usually identified by their frequency (cycles per second).
In honor of the German radio pioneer Heinrich Hertz, his name has been given to the cycle per second (hertz, Hz); 1 kilohertz (kHz) is 1000 cycles per sec, 1 megahertz (MHz) is 1 million cycles per sec, and 1 gigahertz (GHz) is 1 billion cycles per sec.
This is the frequency range 3 kHz to 40,000 MHz, wavelength range 1 cm to more than 1 km (0.4 inch to 0.6 mile).

If the optimum rate is 8 kHz, for example, use a higher rate of 16 kHz or 32 kHz.
RealProducer 8.5 and later can also take audio input sampled at a rate of 48 kHz, which is commonly used with digital video discs (DVD) and digital audio tape (DAT).
If the original audio source has an 8 kHz frequency response, encoding it with a codec that has a frequency response of 10 kHz produces a clip that still has a response of 8 kHz.

It offers 102.4 kHz dual-channel FFTs with 90 dB dynamic range, 145 dB dynamic range swept-sine measurements, real-time ANSI standard octave analysis, waterfall displays and transient capture for less than half the cost of other similarly equipped analyzers.
Because the SR780’s 102.4 kHz real-time bandwidth lets it take data seamlessly, vector averaging can be selected for any signal that’s repetitive within the time record—no trigger is necessary.
Waveforms can be captured at 262 kHz or any sub-multiple of 262 kHz, allowing you to select the sample rate and capture length that’s right for your data.

 Bridging the Gap
Thus, a 96 kHz rate should be able to capture twice the bandwidth afforded by a 48 kHz rate, that is, audio frequencies up to 48 kHz.
Some proponents of 96 kHz digital audio contend that it's the gentler filter that is responsible for the improvement in sound quality produced at high sampling rates.
Because 88.2 kHz is an integer multiple of the CD-format's 44.1 kHz rate, downsampling an 88.2 kHz mix for CD release should theoretically cause less degradation than downsampling a non-integer-multiple 96 kHz mix.

Note also that the greatest hearing loss is observed at 4 kHz, giving rise to what is commonly referred to as the 4-kHz “notch.” While these data are illustrative of the 4-kHz notch, they also demonstrate the presence of considerable noise-induced hearing loss at 3 and 6 kHz.
As part of the NHANES study, hearing thresholds from 500 Hz to 8 kHz are being collected on adults aged 20 – 69.
If a worker presents with a sloping high frequency hearing loss and 8 kHz is not tested, determination of the presence of a 6-kHz notch is not possible.
