Amphion and Antelope Audio team up for the Bristol Show to demonstrate the most transparent, neutral and detailed home audio system

Santa Monica, CA, February 12, 2013Amphion and Antelope Audio are co-exhibiting in room 424 at the Sound & Vision Bristol Show in the United Kingdom, February 22 – 24, 2013. The two brands known for their neutral, yet musical and detailed sound are going to demonstrate a few different set ups, starting from mastering quality to easy-to-use desktop systems.
The visitors will have the chance to see for the first time in the UK the winner of the CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award, the world’s first 384 kHz digital audio preamplifier with integrated atomic clock – Rubicon. The Atomic AD/DA Preamp will be on display and people will be able to see up-close its retro-futurist silhouette and learn more about the benefits of the precise atomic clocking and Antelope’s proprietary jitter-management technologies. The audience will be introduced to the versatility of the Rubicon, offering AD/DA conversion up to 384 kHz; transformer-based, ultra-low noise, discrete JFET phono preamp; DLNA streaming and remote control capability; ultra linear, dual stage headphone amplification and the highest quality of digitizing and storing of analog records through the custom-built USB chip.

In addition to seeing the Rubicon, the visitors will be able to listen, and experience the clearly articulated pitch and the spectacular soundstage brought by Antelope Audio’s 384 kHz USB D/A converters. As a reminder of high fidelity´s original goal, the public will have the chance to listen to original studio masters, from the same speakers with which they were mastered. Amphion Two15 studio monitors, as well as all other Amphion loudspeakers use the innovative waveguide technology and controlled dispersion, which allow speakers to work in all acoustic spaces.
Antelope Audio’s Integrity Line of D/A converters, is especially designed to suit the diverse demands of hi-fi enthusiasts, high-end audiophiles and professional sound engineers. Zodiac DACs’ unique transparency, openness, clarity and depth inspire multiple Grammy Award Winners and Nominees like Jim Anderson, Scott Hull, Howie Weinberg and Morten Lindberg to choose them as their favorite reference converters, both for their studios and their homes as well. Together with a speaker like Amphion Two15 this allows you to hear the music just as the mastering engineer and musicians intended.
Zodiac DACs feature a plug-and-play custom design USB interface, allowing seamless connection with iPad, Mac , PC or just about any other digital media source, while supporting sample rate streaming of up to 384 kHz. The DACs also feature the renowned Antelope Audio 64-bit AFC technology and oven-controlled oscillator, which secured the company’s reputation as the clocking leader in the pro audio industry.
Amphion loudspeakers are designed to be in harmony both with the most demanding aesthetics and room acoustics. 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.
Visitors are welcomed to join Amphion and Antelope Audio at the Sound & Vision Bristol Show, Marriott City Centre Hotel, room 424, February 22 – 24, 2013.
