Zodiac+: A Solid Keeper for Exacting Pro's!

Extensive review to follow... but for now I've had the Zodiac+ and the matching VOLTIKUS power supply since early last year. I bought the pair for playback of high resolution Music, in both a digital and analog environment - utilizing custom drivers, headphones and earbuds [Today ordered a pair of Westone UM3X RC] to use on the Zodiac+ headphone outs. (Curious about common armature designs) Not only have I been blown away by the superior breezes and kind winds of the Zodiac+ and matching PS, but it has become my "Go To 'Guy' " for first and last listen of Music: On a Mac and Analog formats.More to come detailing my repro system if requested.

BEST DAC I'VE HEARD

okay i've tried EVERY DAC (LYNX, APOGEE, AVID, DANGEROUS) this is by far the BEST DAC for headphone amp and monitoring with 64 bit AFL tech. you can use AES, SPDIF, analog i/o's, a mono button, but keep the gain as low as possible or you will lose your hearing! GET IT!

World Class..Flawless...

When I first got the Zodiac it would never stay in sync with my mac. Especially when my mac went to sleep and other times at random. I would have to unplug the power to the Zodiac, and then plug it back in before my mac would recognize it again. This was when I was running Leopard 10.5. But ever since I went to Snow Leopard 10.6 I haven't had a single issue. I simply can't say how much I love this converter. Antelope makes the best master clocks, and they have quickly dominated the converter market. When it comes to price per channel of conversion, Antelope is well ahead of the pack. Worth every penny.

Not ready for prime time

When unit functions, it is amazing. But the firmware is buggy. Audio stream will cut out momentarily and the unit is not recognized when my Mac resumes from sleep mode. I returned one unit that was just a nightmare to keep running and received the second new unit one week ago....

Immediately I noticed that Lucinda's voice seemed to open up and unfold to reveal itself more intimately. The added clarity and dimension made me feel like I was alone with her voice.

The Zodiac Plus is the best DAC I've ever heard.  I was impressed with the detail and imaging of my mix when monitoring back through it.  Thumbs up to Antelope!

Ryan Wiltermood

After using Antelope Audio's Zodiac+, I must say that I am impressed. I compared the direct sound from my recording interface, computer, and from the Zodiac Plus. The difference was surprising. The sound the Zodiac Plus produced was very clear and smooth. This product is perfect for an engineer or someone who wants to listen to their music collection in the highest level of resolution. After extensive comparison of music between the Zodiac Plus and a computer output I found nuances and a wider stereo image were revealed by the Zodiac Plus. The Zodiac Plus' extensive I/O and USB features make it a valuable product for anyone serious about Hi-definition audio.
