The folks at Antelope Audio
had the new Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC/Preamplifier ($5,500 includes Voltikus Power Supply and Remote control) on display. The Platinum houses a 64-bit DAC capable of handling up to 768kHz and 256x DSD formats and offers both analog and digital inputs including balanced analog XLRs, unbalanced analog RCAs, AES/EBU, 2x S/PDIF Coax, 2x Toslink, USB, and Atomic clock/Word Clock Input on BNC. Outputs include "De-jittered AES/EBU Output", "De-jittered 2x S/PDIF Outputs", as well as RCA and trimmable balanced XLRs. There are also dual front-mounted 1/4" headphone jacks and an analog volume control making for one full-featured preamp/DAC. I plan to get my hands on one asap. The Platinum DSD DAC is shown with its matching Voltikus Power Supply Unit.
