Antipodes Audio is a specialist audio technology firm located in Auckland, New Zealand, founded by Mark Jenkins. It began marketing audio cables worldwide in 2004, and began developing its high-end music servers in 2009.
Critical to all design work at Antipodes Audio is the focus on eliminating time-domain distortions. The unnatural time-domain distortions created by electronics, sometimes even very small ones, can confuse the brain, making it work harder to make sense of what it hears, and this gets in the way of our enjoyment of music.
Antipodes Audio cables are unique, manufacturing its own wire from silver and gold, and using only pure cotton insulation. By avoiding the high susceptibility of copper to pick up noise, and avoiding the signal smearing of plastics, Antipodes Audio can use wide open geometries that deliver the ultimate in transparency, detail and dynamics without aggression - allowing the music to express itself sweetly and freely.
Antipodes Audio music servers banish the glare, the poor bass foundation and the flat dimensionality audiophiles have come to expect with digital music. Exceeding the audio quality capabilities of the best CD transports, Antipodes music servers are also simple to manage and drive with auto-ripping, samba file sharing and remote control via tablet or smartphone.
