Antelope, makers of the most drool worthy audiophile equipment have released the world’s first atomic pre-amp. While it may not run off uranium it does however contain a Rubidium Atomic clock. The most accurate timing device available, just part of what makes the Rubicon special.
By replacing the standard crystal clock, which provides the timing for the digital circuits, Antelope have created a timing signal that is 100,000 x more accurate. In audio terms this should make the output signal far more accurate. This technology also allows Antelope to raise the DAC’s bit rate to 384Khz, another world’s first.
Antelope have created not only a technology tour de force but possibly one of the most incredibly stylish amplifiers of all time. The Rubicon is one of those components that looks just as amazing, even when idle. With a touch of steampunk style that marries old and new the Rubicon a device everyone will want but few will afford.
