The Antipodes K41 Music Server is the “Server Apps Only” version of the current K50. The K41 includes improved server electronics and a new superior power supply. This delivers greater speed, detail and dynamics, together with better tonality and greater refinement. It is optimised for playing by Direct Stream Ethernet to a K21 Player, or directly to the Ethernet input on your DAC. An Antipodes K41 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. For those wanting the ultimate USB output solution, the K41 and K21 combination are the recommended solution.
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 the available playback solutions.
The K41 can stream to Player end-points that are compatible with Squeeze (Squeezelite), Roon (Roon Ready), DLNA/UPnP, SONOS, PLEX, and more.
