Rubicon Atomic Preamp

We're not going to pretend to understand what a Rubidium atomic clock — 100,000 times more stable than a traditional crystal oscillator! — has to do with sound quality, but we do know that the Rubicon Atomic Preamp ($TBA) is the first DAC to ship with one. Other features include Antelope's 64-bit Accoustically Focused Clocking technology, 384 kHz USB streaming, DLNA support, dual stage headphone amps, and dual S/PDIF de-jittered outputs. [via]

    Serious about your audio? Take the conversion of your digital sources out of the hands of your receiver and put the load on the M2Tech Young DAC ($1,600). This high-end D/A converter can handle sampling rates up to 384kHz and 32 bits resolution, and packs a slew of inputs, including high-speed asynchronous USB, RCA and BNC S/PDIF, XLR, and optical, and a stylish case that packs blue LEDs behind the grille to indicate the source.

  • Zooka Wireless Speaker

    Getting tired of portable speakers trying to fit your gadgets inside them? What about one that attaches to it, instead? The Zooka Wireless Speaker ($90) is designed to do exactly that. Connecting over Bluetooth — or via 3.5mm jack, if necessary — this slim-line sound tube sports a rechargeable battery, speakers on either end, and a silicone exterior that provides great grip while managing to not scratch whatever you've put it on, whether it be an iPad, phone, or even laptop.
