Once you’re spending four grand to make the thing sound good, maybe it’s time to consider using another device for your audio.
Some people have too much money. Have you noticed? Of course, high end consumer electronics companies aren’t complaining – that’s where their sales come from.
The Antelope Audio Zodiac Gold is a definite exercise in excess. It’s a digital audio converter for your iPad that aims to improve the sound that the tablet puts out. It’s one of the very few 384kHz DACs on the market and one of the fewer converters aimed at the iPad.
It’s a slick looking device, but the thing that draws the most attention is the price. If you want to get the best audio possible out of your iPad, you’ll be spending 3000 euros, or around $3,900.
