Las Vegas, January 7, 2015 — Leading digital audio manufacturer Antelope Audio [CES: Venetian, Suite 29-129] introduces a breathtaking audiophile combination, new for CES: the Zodiac Platinum and Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock. For discriminating audiophiles, the difference is always in the details, image accuracy and soundstage. The high rate, dual DAC architecture of the Zodiac Platinum, combined with the ultra stable clocking of the 10M Atomic Clock, puts a superior listening experience directly within reach of consumers seeking an uncompromising, high-end audio solution.
The magic of the Zodiac Platinum and Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock combination lies in the sum of its parts: Antelope Audio, widely regarded as an authority in digital clocking technologies in the pro audio community, leveraged the technology inside its 10M Atomic reference generator — which is used in mastering studios around the world — and repurposed it for audiophiles with the Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock. Now, in combination with the DSD and PCM upsampling capabilities and high rate dual DAC architecture of the Zodiac Platinum, listeners can experience music with an unprecedented degree of clarity, depth and authenticity.
One Plus One Equals Three
The Zodiac Platinum is the ultimate turnkey audiophile solution, featuring custom, ultra-low jitter USB for streaming up to DSD128 and 384 kHz PCM, as well as comprehensive analog and digital I/O — including analog preamp inputs to various analog sources. Thanks to its 64-bit precision 8x linear phase PCM and DSD upsampling capabilities and high rate dual DAC architecture, the Zodiac Platinum is able to achieve stunning detail, imaging and dynamics — even in the most demanding audiophile environments. With its high precision relay attenuators and dual variable impedance headphone outputs, Zodiac Platinum puts power and control into the hands of the listener.
Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock
The Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock meanwhile, is an upgraded and enhanced version of Antelope’s legendary Isochrone 10M Atomic Clock, which has become the gold standard of clocking for leading producers, sound engineers, artists and movie post-production studios worldwide. When coupled with Antelope’s 10M Audiophile Atomic Clock, the Zodiac Platinum Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology, reaches an even higher standard of professional-grade performance and a noticeable improvement on audio depth and clarity.
Voltikus PSU: Powering with Purity
Voltikus PSU is a second-generation power supply that has been purpose built for the Zodiac Platinum. The Voltikus’ triple regulated power supply, along with its integrated power line filtering, can make a significantly positive difference in audio quality, especially when combined with the Zodiac Platinum and 10M in an uncompromising DAC and clocking environment.
The Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC & Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock Bundle sells for $12,995. The Zodiac Platinum ships with a dedicated aluminum IR remote and as well as a custom software control panel for PC, Mac or mobile control applications.
