Antelope Audio Zodiac Review

The sound is crisp and clear, and that is what I expected. But the one thing I'd like to see is the ability to change sampling rate frequencies. When the unit locks into a freq. rate, it can't be changed. Maybe changing frequencies is simply upsampling, but the sound does seem to be imporved. Cary does this, I would like to see AA do this too.
