This is the Zodiac Plus DAC with Voltikus Power supply. The Zodiac Plus all by itself is in a class with some of the best DACs oout there and with the Voltikus Power supply it is even better.
My customer has owned the plus with Voltikus for 3 + years.
So this is your opportunity to purchase a Zodiac + including the matching Voltikus Power supply plus it is already broken in. This pair retails for $3595 and is a favorite with recording engineers for its nuetrality.
Added 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.
With a 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 allow tremendous flexibility, while auto detection of connected devices means source selection is simple and convenient.
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+.
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 impedance. Controlled by a dedicated volume knob.
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+ are based on a passion to produce something very special - technically, musically and aesthetically. Built with many solid aluminum parts and also very pleasing to the eye, it will be your pride and joy just like it is our passion.
