There are other people claiming to be an authorized Antelope Zodiac Dealer but you can see for yourself here http://www.antelopeaudio.com/en/where-to-buy that I am an Authorized Dealer and that they are not.
I have worked out a 2 year warranty for my customers.
Call me and see why I was selected Zodiac dealer of the year last year. 720 308 4000
The Zodiac Gold Bundle is your ticket to what Digital ought to sound like, it will make you smile and it is available in Black or Silver if Gold doesn't fit your decor.
Why would you want to get the Zodiac Gold Bundle which includes the Voltikus Power Supply.
It will make you smile when you listen to it, because every thing will just sound right.
I have sold a fair number of this combination and have been chosen as the Antelope High End Audio Retailer of the year.
This has proven to be a spectacular partner with the Music Vault Diamond Music Server that I design and build.
All the Zodiac DACs sound fabulous and they all sound better with the Voltikus power supply.
The Gold has a stepped attenuator volume control which is one of the reasons it performs so superbly.
The Gold comes with a remote control for volume and input selector.
It has a balanced AES/EBU digital input (best sound), 2 coax SPDIF inputs, 2 toslink SPDIF inputs, 1 USB input (works to 24 bit 192k) and it has 2 Analog inputs one single ended and one balanced.
All the Zodiac Gold needs is a Music Vault Diamond for the best digital input available, A Turntable with a fabulous phono preamp and a great power amp and speakers.
Now that is a stereo you can be satisfied with, no need to upgrade from there.
Zodiac Gold 384kHz DAC
Exquisite sound with a matching touch of elegance
Zodiac Gold is a sophisticated and powerful DAC, Pre-Amp and Headphone Amp engineered to deliver pristine audio with keenly articulated pitch and a spectacular soundstage.
The unique sound of Zodiac Gold D/A converter is based on Antelope's Oven Controlled Oscillator and 64-bit clocking technology used by the world’s top audio engineers.
UP TO 384 kHz SAMPLING RATE
Antelope Audio is one of the first to offer 384kHz capability. In doing so, we hope to match and exceed the expectations of even the most critical of ears. Now audiophiles can enjoy the highest bandwidth that a USB 2.0 interface can provide for audio.
STEPPED RELAY VOLUME ATTENUATOR
When adjusting volumes, it’s imperative that the stereo image remains completely intact. The Zodiac Gold achieves this by incorporating stepped relays that are matched to 0,05 dB to maintain the most accurate stereo balance at all volume levels.
DE-JITTERED AUDIO OUTPUT
Digital 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 Gold.
OVEN CONTROLLED CLOCK
Often 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.
Sophisticated 64-bit algorithms allow precise control over our Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) and Jitter Management, two critical components to improve audio via clocking. The incoming digital signal is brought to life with this unique 64-bit technology, resulting in smooth and detailed audio whatever the method of digital connectivity.
ANTELOPE PERFORMANCE USB
Custom 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.
Ultra 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. For different sound texture the amplifier impedance is switchable between 120 and 0 Ohm.
To preserve 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, canceling noise and voltage shifts.
NUTS & BOLTS
All component decisions for Zodiac Gold are based on a passion to produce something very special - technically, musically and aesthetically. Built with many solid aluminium parts and also very pleasing to the eye, it will be your pride and joy just like it is our passion.
I will consider trade ins for a reduction in price up to $1000
