Antipodes K40 Music Server

USD9,000 plus tariffs & taxes

The full-width Antipodes K40 is the “Server Apps Only” version of the K50. It is optimised for playing by Direct Stream Ethernet to the Ethernet input on your DAC (or Amp). An Antipodes K40 includes only the high power computation engine from the K50, and excludes the player engine and reclocker engine. Server Apps include Roon Server, Squeeze Server, HQPlayer Server, Minimserver, MiniDLNA, SONOS Server and Plex Server.

The biggest improvement you can make to your DAC, out of the three stages that can be completed by a music server, is to feed it from an excellent Server stage. Or use the K40 to play to an exceptional Player such as the Antipodes S30.

Use the K40 to play into the Ethernet input of your DAC, and/or to stream to multiple devices on your network.

Insert your own SSDs or have your provider install them for you – up to 24TB. Add USB drives. Include music files located elsewhere on your network. Upload music files from anywhere on your network. Add internet streaming services. Attach an Antipodes K10 Ripper to import music from your CDs. All easily user-configurable to form a single integrated music library that is available to all playback solutions selected.

The K40 can stream to streamers that are compatible with Squeeze (Squeezelite), Roon (Roon Ready), DLNA/UPnP, SONOS, PLEX, and more.

Setup and control everything from your desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
