Demonstrations will Explore Antelope’s Upsampling Innovations and the Role that Superior Clocking Plays in an Audiophile Digital Listening Environment
Las Vegas, January 3, 2014— Leading digital audio manufacturer Antelope Audio [CES: Venetian, suite 29-227] will provide ongoing demonstrations of its new Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC /headphone amplifier during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The Zodiac Platinum brings the digital audio listening experience to a new level with its unique 256X DSD upsampling mode, which enables users to upsample DSD64 and DSD128 files to DSD256 — unleashing the true potential of DSD.
In addition to the Zodiac Platinum, Antelope Audio will also provide demonstrations of its CES 2013 Innovations Award Winning Rubicon Atomic AD/DA Preamp — a DSD128, 24-bits, 384 kHz converter, phono stage preamplifier and headphone amplifier with an integrated atomic clock. During the presentations at CES, the Zodiac Platinum and the Rubicon will be connected to a pair of ATC SM100-AMT studio reference loudspeakers.
The presentations will demonstrate the unprecedented clarity, detailed imaging and wide frequency response that are possible with digital recordings while using Antelope Audio’s premium audiophile componentry. Attendees will experience A/B listening comparisons between analog source material and digital recordings using Antelope Audio playback systems.
Master clocks are ubiquitous in the creation of digital audio — whether in movies, television, live sound or recorded music. Marcel James, Antelope Audio’s U.S. Director of Sales and Marketing, will be on hand to explain how the end-user listening experience can be improved by using the same sophisticated clocking technology that is used in the creation process itself — and how this can introduce a more detailed soundstage rich in depth and clarity.
