Antipodes Audio S40 Music Server




S40 Music Server

The small form factor Antipodes S40 uses the same server engine as is used in the K30, but is powered by a standard external power supply brick. The S40 can be upgraded by adding the HSL50-based S60 Power Supply, to deliver considerably better audio performance.

The Antipodes S40 is recommended for use as:

A powerful Server/Player, running both Server Apps and Player Apps, or
A dedicated Server-only, to stream to the Ethernet input of your DAC (or Amp), or to stream to an Antipodes S30 (used as a Player-only).
The Antipodes S40 includes analog output on headphone jack. This is provided for convenience and does not imply we have included a headphone DAC of the same class as the music server engine. The analog sound is good and is provided to enable an easier entry point for someone that does not yet have a good DAC. To realise the full potential of the S40, you should add a quality DAC, or stream to a quality Player such as an Antipodes S30.

Install your own storage disk, up to 5TB HDD or 8TB SSD, or have your provider install it for you. 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.

Easily select the playback solutions you wish to use, from the world's best high-end digital audio software providers. Stream by Direct Ethernet connection or USB Audio to your main stereo system, and at the same time stream over your network to streaming devices.
