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
Hello there, Some of you may remember my journey into buying a 2 channel system. I'm very happy with my purchase, however, I'm just wondering if any of you have any experience in using cheap USB DACs. As part of my Primare NP5 streamer purchase I was gifted a free three-month trial for Tidal Hi-Fi (thanks @gwurbfor bringing this to my attention). When streaming via Chromecast and Apple Airplay through the NP5 I am unable to stream Master quality (this isn't a bad thing as Hi-Fi quality is still sounding good and is better than the quality through Spotify). However, should I want to listen to Master quality albums on my MacBook through my Audiolab 6000a, what is the best way of doing this without paying too much. I was going to buy a 3.5mm to Toslink cable but then found out that my version of Mac no longer has analog/optical audio out through the headphone port (good ol' Apple). And I don't think my Galaxy Note 9 can do this through its headphone port. I have been looking online and it looks like I could potentially run a USB - S/PDIF from my Mac to the amp. I'm assuming I can pass audio from my Mac to the amp this way. If so, I've found the following device and was wondering if anyone here has used it before and if so will it achieve wha ti want it to? Or are there other cheap alternatives out there? Signstek HIFI USB to Coaxial S/PDIF Converter Convert Digital to Analogue Signal Mini USB DAC PCM If I were to use this one would the DAC in my amp be used for the audio and not the DAC in the device? The other alternative is to get a jack to RCA cable and plug my Note 9 to the amp that way. I'm guessing this would affect the quality of the music, or am I wrong here? Many thanks
Just received this offer when checking my facebook today. On my phone it says Tidal HiFi $4 for 3 months, so my understanding is that instead of paying $72 you only pay $4. Probably for those who want to try out Tidal. T&Cs apply as usual so do check them. *Offer for new users only. Not available in all regions. Total discount varies per region and depends on the plan you choose. Your TIDAL subscription will begin immediately, and your payment method will be charged the promotional amount. After the promotional period expires, your subscription will automatically renew at the standard monthly rate for your region and chosen plan.
Just wondering if anyone else is having major issues with Tidal and or their Bluesound this weekend or over the past week? Constant buffering when streaming Tidal either using cellular data out and about or at home via bluesound (which is hardwired via ethernet) A mate who lives over an hour away having same issues using Tidal and his Bluesound and am wondering if others have issues too? Spotify and Qoboz work no issue via the Bluesound but Tidal works fine for my mate using his Yamaha so is the issue a Tidal and Bluesound compatability thing or more a Tidal issue given streaming tidal to my phone presents issues too. I have sent a requet to Tidal and am waiting for a reply. All the usual checks been done re connections etc, I am confident that is not the problem given my net speed and all other wired or WiFi devices in the home work flawlessly. Will be interested to see if anyone else has been paying for the privage of frustration this weekend...

Hi there team, Looking for some advice (for a friend) running Windows 10, looking for a Tidal-integrated player that supports MQA. He was originally using Audirvana but the trial has ended, the Tidal desktop app is a little lacking comparatively. Are there any free players out there that have Tidal integration, and also support MQA? Just looking for some options to test out against the Tidal-app, while he waits for paycheck to secure Audirvana! Thanks as always all, David
