flexibility for the professional user makes for a distinctly powerful device:
AES Input, fine trimmers on the balanced outputs, mono button, mute select
(soft & full), transparent analog inputs, BNC word clock input, 192kHz USB.
outputs on AES/EBU and S/PDIF offer all the benefits of Antelope’s 64-bit
Acoustically Focused Clocking, so external devices gain significant sonic
advantages when connected to Zodiac+.
number of different inputs available, you can monitor many sources such as CD,
Laptop, DAW or Mixers and Keyboards. Balanced and unbalanced inputs at both
+4db and -10db allows tremendous flexibility, while auto detection of connected
devices means source selection is simple and convenient.
is housed in a shielded container where the temperature is kept constant,
therefore bringing significant benefits to the detail, dynamics and stereo
placement of the audio.
overlooked, the quality of the clock is extremely important when high quality
audio is desired. The clock is housed in a shielded container where the
temperature is kept constant, therefore bringing significant benefits to the
detail, dynamics and stereo placement of the audio.
64-bit algorithms allow precise control over our Acoustically Focused Clocking
(AFC) and Jitter Management; two critical components to improve audio via
implementation of the USB chip leads to extreme audio performance and
comprehensive support for your system. There are user selectable modes tailored
to suit both Mac and PC; and with a data transfer rate of 480Mbits flawless
audio is achieved with native drivers.
Linear, Dual Stage Headphone Amps deliver smooth sound at both high and low
levels. Custom designed for accurate monitoring with a wide range of headphone
impedances. Controlled by a dedicated volume knob.
the full bit resolution of the DAC, volume adjustment is entirely in the analog
domain. Separate analog and digital power supplies eliminate digital
cross-talk. This is further enhanced by keeping analog and digital circuits on
separate PCB’s. These gold plated boards utilize large internal ground plains,
cancelling noise and voltage shifts.
Nuts and Bolts
component decisions for Zodiac+ are based on a passion to produce something
very special - technically, musically and aesthetically. Built with many solid
aluminium parts and also very cute on the eye, it will be your pride and joy
just like it is our passion.
