You always get a better rate at an ATM than by buying currency ahead of time. Always.
According to Honest Guide, there are ATMs in Prague that charge a 35% profit (not dynamic conversion, but profit from combining low exchange rates and other fees).

Also according to Honest Guide, there are no good ATM rates at the Prague airport even turning down dynamic conversion. He suggests using euros on arrival and buying a cheeseburger at McDonald's getting a good conversion rate, then using the Crowns given in change to take a bus into the city and going to a bank ATM there, although not every bank gives a good exchange rate, avoid the CSOB bank ATMs. Frankly it all sounds rather hard.
