Antelope Audio support up to 384KHz files via iPad


Antelope Audio’s Zodiac D/A converters are now compatible with Apple’s iPad, allowing playback of audio of up to 384kHz files (WAV/AIFF) played and controlled from an iPad through the Zodiac DAC.  FLAC files are supported up to 192kHz via the excellent FLAC player iOS app.

Connectivity is pretty simple:  plug an Apple Camera Connection Kit jack into the iPad and then plug in a USB cable to the Zodiac DAC – that’s it. The devices are connected. Then tap the Music App on the iPad and play the track.

“The compatibility between Zodiac DACs and iPad makes it easier than ever to enjoy high-resolution music from just about any location,” commented Marcel James, Director of Sales and Marketing, Antelope Audio, USA. “As the market evolves and adapts to smaller multifunctional devices — such as the iPad — we want to ensure that we are able to help deliver the highest possible audio quality to all music lovers. We are proud we are giving the people the opportunity to experience the pleasure of pristine audio with just a simple set up of a PC, MAC and now even iPad.”

The Zodiac DACs are compatible with iPads running the latest operating system (e.g. 5.0.1 or later). The DACs support mp3 files up to 384kHz and FLAC files through FLAC player up to 192 kHz.
