antipodes is pronounced an-tip-uh-deez - and refers to our corner of the world. These are our reference servers, always on display and in our system.

Antipodes DS Server

The DS brings audiophile music server sound to a more affordable price-level, with a high quality USB digital audio output, as well as a musical analog output able to decode PCM up to 32/384, DSD64 and DSD128 (double DSD). The DS uses the same core technology as the DX, and so is similarly open, dynamic and musically expressive, but can not approach the low noise floor and liquid sound of the DX music servers due to the need to omit our proprietary linear power supply technology at this price point and form factor.

The DS is suitable for mid-tier audiophile systems, even when using its stereo analog output. Providing the stereo analog output is done to allow an affordable entry into the world of audiophile music servers, with the ability to reach the full potential of the DS by adding a high quality USB DAC later.

Antipodes DX Server

Read the excellent review by John Atkinson in Stereophile

The DX is our flagship music server, adding wider dynamics, reduced noise floor and enhanced resolution, and captures all of the swing and flow of the musical event.

As with all Antipodes music servers, the chipset speeds are tuned to minimise and spread electronic noise. Applying this to the ideal design of the DX, incorporating SSDs and a special version of our proprietary power supply, enables the DX to achieve incredibly low electronic noise levels, which lets the music speak for itself, resulting in a magical musical experience with all types of music.

The DX belongs in 'top-drawer' audio systems where its superior music-making is obvious.
