ANTIPODES OLADRA

Server – Player – Reclocker

World Price – USD25,000 (plus applicable duties & taxes)

Antipodes Oladra

The Oladra integrates Server, Player and Reclocker functions in a single and beautifully elegant chassis (learn more about Server/Player/Reclocker functions). The Oladra uses our latest power supply and computing platforms to deliver the best sound quality in our music server range.

Server

The Oladra employs our new high-power V7H computing engine to run Server apps (such as, Squeeze Server, Roon Server, HQPlayer Server, Plex Server, etc). Users can easily install their own SSD storage – 3 disks, up to 24TB. The Server computing engine has 64GB of RAM installed, offers an external Direct Stream link to play to the Ethernet input on a DAC, and has an ultra-high-speed proprietary link to stream to the Player engine.

Player

The Oladra employs our new mid-power V7X computing engine to run Player apps (such as Squeeze (Squeezelite), Roon (Roon Ready), HQPlayer NAA, MPD, etc). The Player computing engine has 8GB of RAM installed, offers a USB Audio output to play to the USB input on a DAC, and provides galvanically isolated transmission to the Reclocker engine.

Reclocker

The Oladra employs a FPGA managed, oven-controlled high-end clock, fed by a high-quality power supply employing Graphene super-capacitor smoothing, and discrete line drivers for S/PDIF (RCA & BNC), I2S (RJ45 & HDMI), AES3 (3-pin XLR) outputs. Because this reclocker is superior to the reclocking in almost any DAC available at any price, the synchronous outputs (S/PDIF, AES3, I2S) of the Oladra provide you with the best sound quality.

Design

A premium high-end product demands a premium chassis, and the objective was to create a product so simple and beautiful that users would just want to lay their hands on it, and be a design that would be both distinctive and stand the test of time.

The Oladra case design is in two parts: a bottom/back plate assembly holding all of the electronics; and a one-piece front/top/sides carved from a single solid block of special grade alloy. The result is an object of timeless beauty.

The electronic design took the Project Oladra approach to its ultimate, to deliver an even better sounding music server than the much-acclaimed K50.  The Oladra is consistent with, and improves on the qualities of all Antipodes music servers, delivering an organically real sound, that also excels in detail, imaging, decays, timbre and dynamics.

What you will experience, with the Oladra, is a larger, deeper, more open and enveloping soundstage, that brings you closer, and conveys all of the scale and drama of the musical event. The better your system, the more pronounced the increase in scale and drama will be, and that is what the Oladra is all about – a digital source for the very best sound systems.  The K50 continues to be an absolute winner at its price-point, but the Oladra takes things to a distinctly new level.

Launch

The Oladra will debut at the Munich High End Show in May 2022, and will begin shipping in August 2022.
