Antelope Audio Zodiac+ with Voltikus Power Supply – No Longer Available
Zodiac+ wipes the virtual dust from your monitor speakers, widening thepicture and adding more details, revealing extra dimension in thespectrum of music.
Added flexibility for the professional user makes for a distinctlypowerful device: AES Input, fine trimmers on the balanced outputs, monobutton, mute select (soft & full), transparent analog inputs, BNCword clock input, 192kHz USB.
De-Jittered Audio Output
Digital outputs on AES/EBU and S/PDIF offer all the benefits ofAntelope’s 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking, so external devicesgain significant sonic advantages when connected to Zodiac+.
With a number of different inputs available, you can monitor manysources such as CD, Laptop, DAW or Mixers and Keyboards. Balanced andunbalanced inputs at both +4db and -10db allows tremendous flexibility,while auto detection of connected devices means source selection issimple and convenient.
Oven Controlled Clock
Often overlooked, the quality of the clock is extremely important whenhigh quality audio is desired. The clock is housed in a shieldedcontainer where the temperature is kept constant, therefore bringingsignificant benefits to the detail, dynamics and stereo placement of theaudio.
Sophisticated 64-bit algorithms allow precise control over ourAcoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) and Jitter Management; two criticalcomponents to improve audio via clocking. The incoming digital signal isbrought to life with this unique 64-bit technology, resulting in smoothand detailed audio whatever the method of digital connectivity.
Antelope Performance USB
Custom implementation of the USB chip leads to extreme audio performanceand comprehensive support for your system. There are user selectablemodes tailored to suit both Mac and PC; and with a data transfer rate of480Mbits flawless audio is achieved with native drivers.
Ultra Linear, Dual Stage Headphone Amps deliver smooth sound at bothhigh and low levels. Custom designed for accurate monitoring with a widerange of headphone impedance's. Controlled by a dedicated volume knob.
To preserve the full bit resolution of the DAC, volume adjustment isentirely in the analog domain. Separate analog and digital powersupplies eliminate digital cross-talk. This is further enhanced bykeeping analog and digital circuits on separate PCB’s. These gold platedboards utilize large internal ground plains, canceling noise andvoltage shifts.
