  1. Hi All, I was wondering whether it might be worth starting up an Antipodes Thread where all comments/questions/comparisons can be logged in one place? EDIT Update...will start off by listing all the reviews I have read: Current Models http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2015/05/antipodes-audio-dx-music-server-review/ http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2015/08/antipodes-audio-update-entry-level-ds-music-server/ http://www.stereophile.com/content/antipodes-dx-reference-music-server#sOHd6roMyrOroWAT.97 http://positive-feedback.com/audio-discourse/audio-ramblings-the-antipodes-dx-music-server/ http://www.audiostream.com/content/antipodes-reference-series-dx-music-server http://www.audiostream.com/content/antipodes-reference-series-dx-music-server-part-2#VqkwxjgBEgm6S6Hw.97 Older Models http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/antipodes/1.html http://www.audiophilia.com/wp/?p=12895 http://www.witchdoctor.co.nz/index.php/2013/03/antipodes-audio-ds1-music-server-review/ My DS: Next, I took delivery today of a new Antipodes DS (mk.3). This replaced a Mk.1. First impressions - very impressive! The first comment is that compared to the original DS, the form factor is at least 1 inch (maybe 2) wider, with some serious heat-sinkage on the sides. I guess the old DS used to get pretty warm, especially during marathon CD-digitising sessions. Please see the photo below. The second comment is that the power supply has gone through a big change, now it is about half the size of the unit as well. Mark Jenkins has previously described this as a hybrid PS. I notice that it has a fan to keep it cool. I don't have the old unit to do a side-by-side comparison, but all in all, I think this has driven a wider soundstage. Sound is not noticeably clearer than before, but bass has more weight. For those that can't (or don't want to) afford a DX, then the DS can perform a pretty good job, at least as good as a CD. (I'll let the unit burn in a bit more and then do a better comparison). I'm also keen to try the SPDIF connection vs the USB, to see if I can perceive a difference. I'm certainly very happy with the new unit, it looks like Mark Jenkins has come up with the goods again! Torben
  2. Item: Antipodes DX G2 Black Location: Sunshine Coast QLD Price: $4,400 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not being used Extra info: It has a 2TB SDD containing around 91Gig of flac files. Has switchable power inputs (115V or 230V) A review: https://www.hifi-advice.com/blog/review/digital-reviews/network-player-reviews/antipodes-dx-music-server/ The only reason I'm listing this is I use a Bacch4Mac dsp and it only runs on Apple gear https://www.theoretica.us/bacch4mac/ ......I eventually and reluctantly gave in. If I wasn't addicted to BACCH I would NOT be listing this server. It cost me just over $9K, It's coming up to 3 y/o. I want to buy some other hi fi gear and the DX is not being used. It has all the features mentioned in the antipodes review above except it has only usb out. Mark Jenkins decided (at the time) to provide only what he considered the best output. (earlier versions had AES/coax etc.) This is the best sounding server I have ever heard. Mark Jenkins is the master at this stuff. His approach to radically reducing electrical (and mechanical) noise without interfering with signal (achieved through not filtering) makes this one box server one of the best in the world.... and no spinning HDD's here, only separate SSD's. This thing is so versatile yet so easy to use. You don't need to be a level one computer programmer to use it. It rips CD's in paranoid mode before storing to the drive. If you don't want to use it as a ROON Core you can playback using Squeezbox Server...controlled from your iphone (eg. Ipeng) or the app: "Orange Squeeze" for your Android device). USB ports at the rear of the DX enable easily backup your valuable files to an external drive of at a click of a button (see the apps tab in the review above.) Basically the DX is a fantastic sounding Server that's easy to use. Its a fantastic way of keeping your CD's on file and transitioning to the world of streaming, where you can select any track at the touch of a button. I have Roon for life and love it but I should mention that selecting and setting up free to air (global) digital radio stations is FAR easier on the DX (via squeezbox) than it is on Roon! You can also have both No cat or dog hair, I'm not a smoker, was always used with power regulation (PS Audio P-10). Feel free to pm (pers message) me if you want to ask specifics, arrange a listen etc. Photos:
