Antipodes Music Servers
“The EX is a great Music Server and an even better Renderer.”
“Technically immaculate as well as emotionally highly involving.”
“Just the same, the CX is an amazing Server.”
“Every bit as fast as my big tower PC.”
Ultimate Sound Quality
“But when combined, the two perform at an unprecedented level.”
“This combination is, quite simply, the very best digital front end that I have heard.”
Quotes above are from reviews of the CX and EX published at www.hifi-advice.com
“With the Antipodes EX, it’s as if someone had torn open the windows and properly ventilated. No fog, no cloud, no haze can be discerned in the sound image, which is particularly noticeable in the transparency and transparency of the virtual stage.” Ralph Werner – Fair Audio
“Without a doubt, the Antipodes EX has changed my “view of the world“. Astonishing how much the New Zealand apparatus stands out from the CD player configuration in terms of sound quality. There is no need for comparative repetitions at all.” Wolfgang Kemper – HiFi Statement
“Antipodes Audio CX + EX added a significant amount of detail and strengthened the sound foundation, but here is how they differ dramatically – speed, dynamics, suddenness and range of sound drops when the music explodes and suddenly suddenly breaks into breathtaking silence. Real High End!” Stas Ustenko – Hifi.ru
“Who’d have thought that of all places, New Zealand would be home to what looks like some of the most advanced digital streaming we have at our disposal at this time?” Srajan Ebaen – 6moons

• Access internet streaming services like TIDAL, QOBUZ, SPOTIFY …
• Select what to play with your desktop/laptop/tablet/smartphone
• Play direct to your DAC or Amp, and stream to networked players
• And much more…
