From World Class Mastering Rooms to Your Own Living Room: Antelope Audio Introduces the Unparalleled Combination of Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC and 10M Atomic Clock

Denver, October 8, 2014 — Leading digital audio manufacturer Antelope Audio [exhibit Marriott Tower, Suite 1125] is once again setting new standards of audio fidelity at this year's Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) by demonstrating its new Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC in combination with its 10M Audiophile Atomic Clock. Attendees of RMAF will be among the first in the U.S. to experience the unrivalled sound quality made possible by the high rate, quad DAC architecture present in the Zodiac Platinum when connected to the ultra stable Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock, an upgraded and enhanced version of Antelope Audio's renowned Isochrone 10M clock.

During the demonstration at RMAF, the Antelope suite will consist of two systems built around Zodiac Platinum DACs, with one system connected to the 10M Audiophile Atomic Clock and the other functioning solely as a DAC/preamplifier. The digital signals will originate from a Music Vault M7 music server by Sound Science. The first system (which includes the 10M) will also consist of a Lyngdorf 2170 integrated amplifier with Room Perfect room correction, powering a pair of King Sound Prince 3 electrostatic full range loudspeakers.

The Second system, which will use the Zodiac Platinum as a DAC/preamplifer, will receive its digital signal from Second Music Vault Music Server. The Zodiac Platinum will be used to feed a M20 stereo vacuum tube headphone amplifier, which will drive two Kingsound H3 electrostatic headphones. The Zodiac Platinum will also feed a Kingsound M10 solid state headphone amp that will be driving another pair of Kingsound H3 electrostatic headphones.

Antelope Audio is widely regarded as an authority in digital clocking and audio conversion technologies and is well-known in the professional audio community. The same technology featured in the Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock is also present in the company's flagship 10M Atomic reference generator and routinely used at the best recording, mastering and postproduction facilities around the Globe.

Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC
The Zodiac Platinum features custom, ultra low jitter USB for streaming up to DSD128 and 384 kHz PCM, plus comprehensive analog and digital I/O.  It also features fully reclocked and de-jittered digital outputs along with analog preamp inputs, ensuring sonic purity at the input stage. With its 64-bit precision 8x linear phase PCM and DSD upsampling capabilities and quad DAC architecture, the Zodiac Platinum is able to achieve stunningly transparent imaging and dynamics in the most demanding audiophile environments. With high precision relay attenuators for fast and precise control of main outputs and dual variable impedance headphone outputs, Zodiac Platinum puts power control into the hands of the listener.

10M Audiophile Atomic Clock
The 10M Audiophile Atomic Clock is an upgraded and enhanced version of Antelope's legendary Isochrone 10M master clock, which has become an industry standard for ensuring audio quality and accurate sound reproduction among 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: The Ultimate Power Supply
Voltikus PSU is a second generation power supply that is purpose built for the Zodiac Platinum. Hear the difference that a triple regulated power supply with integrated power line filtering can make in combination with 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.
