Timing Is Everything
Making an audio product that has a flat frequency response, inaudible noise, and wide dynamic range is relatively easy. But what listeners often
perceive as shortcomings in these areas, particularly frequency response, is in fact due to timing errors in the signal. Even very small time-domain
errors interfere with the complex ear/brain process that has to make sense of the received sound-wave before we can engage with the musical event.
Antipodes Audio Cables are uniquely designed, using proprietary wire, geometries and insulation, for phase-accurate signal transmission, without time-smearing.
Antipodes Music Servers are designed to minimise noise interference with the digital signal, enabling the Receiver and DAC chips in your DAC to perform with accurate timing.
The result is simply more natural and emotionally engaging music.
New Output Options
New improved USB output stage plus additional auxiliary outputs - S/PDIF and Stereo AnalogMark Jenkins announced "We added S/PDIF and analog outputs for convenience, for customers that do not yet have a high quality USB DAC. Both of the S/PDIF and Analog outputs will provide an engaging and glare-free musical experience, but one that will be improved upon when customers add a quality USB DAC. This enables customers to get the music server first and add a suitable DAC later. We are adamant that this provides a more musical first step than using a good DAC on a poor server based on a standard computer. To accomodate older DACs, the S/PDIF output is limited to 24/96 with higher bitrate files transcoded on the fly. Some beta testers even stated a preference for the S/PDIF sound over USB, but this will be taste and system dependent. In a very good system the superiority of the USB sound will be evident. The new stereo analog output does not mean we have incorporated a quality DAC stage. The DAC used is very modest indeed, but its musicality supports our contention that even very modest DACs can perform very well if they are fed with a very accurate and clean digital signal."

Digital Audio Review Gives The DX Its DAR-KO Award
This review provides an excellent description of the Antipodes music server signature sound:
"it sounds organic, natural, big, bold and - best of all - more detailed in a way that's not artificially led by keener transients."
