ZODIACPlatinum DSD DAC
DSD256 Upsampling D/ A Converter

The Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC supports up to DSD128 (Double-DSD) and 384kHz, 24-bit streaming to a custom-designed, ultra-low jitter USB connection, as well as AES/EBU, S/PDIF, and TOSLINK PCM support.


The DSD features include a unique 256X up-sampling mode where DSD64 and DSD128 are
up-sampled to DSD256, thereby releasing the true potential of DSD – delivering new standards in accuracy, transparency, imaging, and dynamics.


The unit compliments the high-resolution PCM inputs with switchable 64-bit precision 8x linear phase upsampling using a dedicated FPGA and Independent dual DACs per channel to eliminate crosstalk and improve dynamic range and linearity.

Features

  • HIGHEST SAMPLE RATES
    An Antelope-designed custom USB chip offers ultra-low jitter and streaming support for up to DSD128 and 384kHz PCM – four times higher than similar devices.
  • QUAD DAC ARCHITECTURE
    Independent dual DACs per channel to eliminate crosstalk and improve dynamic range and linearity.
  • WIDEST DSD SUPPORT
    Support for DSD64, DSD128, via USB (DoP) and a unique DSD upsampling mode to DSD256
  • FPGA PCM UPSAMPLING
    Switchable 64-bit precision 8x linear phase upsampling using a dedicated FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array)
  • ACOUSTICALLY FOCUSED CLOCKING TECHNOLOGY
    Antelope AFC with 64-bit DSP, backed by an ultra-low jitter, oven-controlled crystal oscillator for detailed and focused sound
  • ZODIAC CONTROL PANEL
    Control application for Mac, PC, Linux and mobile platforms gives full access to Zodiac functionality.

Signature Antelope clocking
The foundation of the Zodiac Platinum is the renowned 64-bit, Acoustically Focused Clocking and the ultra-low jitter oven-controlled crystal oscillator, which stand as a guarantee of unprecedented sound quality – used by the best recording, mastering, and post production studios around the world.
In addition, the Platinum is equipped with a 10MHz input for the legendary Antelope 10M Rubidium atomic clock, providing the most accurate and stable clocking reference, and uncompromising digital to analog conversion.

Distinctive pedigree and highly evolved technology
Zodiac Platinum has inherited the stepped relay volume control and the dual-stage headphone drivers with impedance control from its very successful predecessor, the Zodiac Gold. It also comes with supplied with the 2nd Generation Voltikus external audiophile grade power supply and an elegant remote control.
