The small form factor Antipodes S20 is a new re-clocker that can be added to any Antipodes music server that has a USB Audio output. The Antipodes S20’s re-clocking engine provides galvanic isolation from the incoming USB signal, employs a high quality and excellent sounding femto-second clock to re-clock the digital signal, and offers S/PDIF, AES3 and I2S synchronous outputs to feed your DAC.

The Antipodes S20 is powered by a standard external brick power supply, but the power is cascaded through an internal HSL50 regulator to provide clean power to the re-clocker. The performance can be upgraded further by powering it externally with an Antipodes S60 power supply.

The S20 provides a better re-clocking stage to convert an asynchronous USB signal to a synchronous digital signal (S/PDIF, AES3 or I2S) than you will find in all but cost-no-object DACs. In most systems the S20 offers a dramatic improvement in sound quality over feeding your DAC with USB.

Feed your S20 with USB and the S20 will re-clock the signal to provide a higher quality synchronous signal to your DAC
