K Series Music Server

K50

The K50 music server is our biggest ever selling model, integrating Server, Player and Reclocker functions in a single chassis, and delivering class-leading sound quality

K41

The K41 music server includes just the Server engine from the K50. This allows customers to begin with a K41, playing to the Ethernet input on their DAC, and to upgrade later by adding a K21 (for USB output) or K22 (for USB and reclocked synchronous outputs S/PDIF, AES3 and I2S). Shifting the Player and Reclocker roles from your DAC to the Server improves the architecture of the total solution to lift overall sound quality. Users can easily add up to three SSDs (up to 24TB).

K30

The full-width Antipodes Audio K30 music server is the entry model to the premium K-Series and is designed to deliver a large chunk of the K50’s performance at a more affordable price.

 

K22

The K22 music server includes just the Player and Reclocker engines from the K50, to play to the USB, S/PDIF, AES3 or I2S inputs on a customer’s DAC. The K22 can also run Server apps, but is only medium-powered so is not suitable for very large libraries (>8TB) or heavy DSP functions. The K22 can have one SSD added by the customer (up to 8TB). The customer can upgrade later by adding a K41, improving Server app responsiveness and significantly enhancing sound quality.
