– The Demonstrations will Highlight the Synergy between Antelope’s High Quality Conversion and Clocking and Amphion’s Clean and Transparent Sound –
Amsterdam, February 3, 2014— During the Integrated Systems Europe, February 4 – 6, 2014, Amphion Loudspeakers and Antelope Audio [Booth 7-V184] will demonstrate the power and flexibility of the world’s first 32-channel interface and master clock Orion32, 384 kHz mastering AD/DA converter Eclipse 384 and the unique DSD upsampling home audio DAC Zodiac Platinum, in conjunction with Amphion’s Two18 mixing / mastering monitors and home entertainment Argon and Helium speaker lines.
Amphion and Antelope offer audiences the experience of mastering-quality sound, not only at the studio but even in the comfort of their own home. Due to a high level of sonic synergy and stable acoustic signature, the system works in all kinds of rooms, no matter if they are big or small, acoustically treated or not. The high level of resolution and cohesion draw the listener deep into the music, both while mixing and mastering or simply enjoying it.
Orion32: Unmatched I/O Flexibility, Audio Quality and Clocking Accuracy
The Orion32, receiving outstanding reviews from media and users worldwide, was a nominee for the 29th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Awards in the “Computer Audio Hardware” category. The TEC Awards is the pro audio industry’s most prestigious awards show honoring outstanding achievement in product innovation and sound production. Orion32 was nominated for its being the world’s first 32-channel AD/DA converter and extremely precise master clock, employing Antelope’s proprietary 4th generation of Acoustically Focused Clocking jitter management technology and oven-controlled oscillator.
Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC, bringing unique DSD upsampling technology
The new Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC/headphone amplifier has just been introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The DAC features a 256X DSD upsampling mode, which helps realize the true potential of DSD – delivering new standards in accuracy, transparency, imaging, and dynamics. In addition, it features a custom-built USB chip capable of carrying DSD128 and 24-bit, 384 kHz PCM files and a wide range of connectivity options, including the one of a kind in home audio 10 MHz input for the renowned 10M Atomic Clock.
Amphion loudspeakers maximize your enjoyment
Amphion loudspeakers are designed to be in harmony both with the most demanding aesthetics and room acoustics. Their performance is maximized for normal living rooms and “real- world speaker placements.” As they are designed to work close to the walls, desktops, shelves or other boundaries, the listener can get the optimum performance. Thanks to their excellent dispersion characteristics, Amphion loudspeakers perform magnificently in challenging spaces, such as rooms with large windows and other hard, acoustically unfriendly surfaces. Amphion’s design embraces a natural midrange – traditionally a loudspeaker’s greatest challenge. Clarity and intelligibility come across crystal clear, even at low listening levels: for example as background and late night listening. Similarly, an even, wide dispersion permits the listener to experience a realistic and detailed sound while moving around the room, attending to chores or guests.
