Санта-Моника, Калифорния, 13 ноября 2012 – Сегодня представители Antelope Audio объявили, что компания получила одну из самых престижных наград – CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards 2013 на Международной выставке потребительской электроники (CES) за Rubicon, новейший 384 кГц цифровой аудио предусилитель, в который интегрированы рубидиевые атомные часы 10 МГц. Престижная премия присуждается группой независимых экспертов, выдающихся промышленных дизайнеров, инженеров и представителей СМИ, в нескольких различных категориях продуктов потребительской электроники. Премии удостаиваются самые передовые продукты с лучшим дизайном и техническими характеристиками.
Rubicon стал ответом Antelope Audio на возрастающий интерес потребителей к аудио высокого разрешения. В нем учтены все потребности энтузиастов высокотехнологичной пользовательской электроники в точном построении звука и подробной «звуковой сцене» при воспроизведении как аналоговых, так и цифровых записей. «Rubicon» – первый предусилитель с ЦАП, имеющий рубидиевые атомные часы, точность которых по сравнению с обычным кварцевым генератором увеличилась в 100000 раз.
«Это невероятная честь – получить премию CES Innovations Design и Engineering Awards», – заявил Игорь Левин, генеральный директор и основатель Antelope Audio. «Рубикон, безусловно, стал выдающимся инженерным решением и для нашей компании, и, что более важно, для потребителей, так как он значительно улучшает общее звучание».
Earlier this year, during the High End Show in Munich we were given the chance to organize a lecture about high resolution audio and the benefits it brings to listeners. In order to get several different perspectives we got together four different experts and supporters of high resolution audio, from four different fields of the audio industry.
The title of the lecture, High Resolution – The Future of Digital Audio attracted a significant audience in front of the Technology Stage at the High End Show. Here you can watch the whole lecture divided into several short videos.
May 03-06, 2012 — Munich, Germany: The entire range of high-tech products could be found under a single roof including warmly glowing tubes, stylish turntables and multichannel audio streaming. With over 360 exibitors, 14.600,00 visitors and more than 480 journalists, the HIGH END Munich was a remarkable proof for the enhanced interest in audiophile technologies. Among all those hifi gear, our innovative Rubicon Atomic AD/DA Preamp attracted a high amount of visitors and international journalists at our booth. While on the one side the outstanding design was vividly discussed, on the other side the integrated Rubidium Atomic Clock led to many talks about AD/DA conversion and high resolution audio content with our staff, including mastermind Igor Levin.
No wonder, why he was the first of four speakers at the HIGH END lecture «High-resolution: The future of digital audio». Followed by mastering engineer Morten Lindberg, highres audio distribution CEO Lothar Kerestedjan and CEO Daniela Manger from Manger Audio, the lecture made clear, that 384 kHz audiofile content is not a theoretical marketing issue, but a huge benefit to experience music.
Btw: Special thanks to the munich people, that allowed our staff to taste the wonderful german bear and food variations and led them listen to original bavarian tunes.
Rubicon is a 384 kHz converter, phono stage preamp and headphone amplifier with an integrated atomic clock.
Santa Monica, CA, April 19, 2012 – Antelope Audio will introduce Rubicon, a groundbreaking 384 kHz digital audio preamplifier which integrates the world renowned 10M Rubidium atomic clock. Rubicon caters for the ever-increasing interest in high resolution audio, addressing the specific needs of high end consumer electronics enthusiasts for accurate audio representation and detailed soundstage of both analog and digital recordings. The new device will be presented to the public during the Munich High End Show, May 3rd – 6th.
Rubicon is the first DAC to integrate a Rubidium atomic clock, which is 100,000 times more stable than a traditional crystal oscillator. Coupled with Antelope’s 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology, the Rubidium achieves a breakthrough in jitter management, improving the sound quality in an unprecedented way. The same technology is implemented in the company’s flagship master clocks used for scoring blockbusters such as Avatar and available at the best recording and mastering studios around the globe.
