Antelope Rubicon Atomic AD/DA Preamp Appears

After last year's shipping mishap, I thought it would be appropriate to provide a shot of the actual product since it finally arrived in Vegas.

From last year's post: The $40k Rubicon features a built-in analog to digital converter that can be driven from an internal phono preamp, several sets of regular line level RCA jacks, or balanced XLRs. Digital inputs include 2 SPDIF, 2 Toslink and AES/EBU. Analog and digital outputs are also available. The Atomic part of the product's name refers to the 10MHz rubiduim atomic clock driving its 384kH converters.

Pacific Microsonics' Model Two A-D/D-A Converter is now many years out of production, but remains highly regarded, and in use at studios such as Skywalker Sound and Gateway Mastering. If you are looking to make comparisons, it remains a worthy standard by which to judge others. Alan Goodwin was the east coast dealer and would be a good point of contact if JA wants to set up such a comparison.

But if "Dune" had had more sophisticated production design then this product's aesthetic would have been present in the movie.
