Antelope Audio's Rubicon digital/analog preamp combines all of the company's highest-level circuits into a single chassis. These include a 384kHz D-to-A converter, a Rubidium atomic clock, a gold-plated relay volume control, a low-noise JFET phono stage and a dual-stage headphone amplifier. Users can perform high-resolution digitization of analog sources and stream music via USB at up to 384kHz. The Rubicon is DLNA compliant for wireless streaming from smart phones, PCs and NAS drives.

The Rubicon was on static display only; the price for all of its functionality has not been finalized, but should be in the $25,000 range.
