he Antipodes DX Gen3 is our flagship model, integrating autoripper, server & renderer functions. The DX provides the ultimate in digital audio sound quality, together with simplicity and ease of use. Key to the increased performance of the DX Gen3 is the new V4X circuit developed exclusively for the Antipodes DX.

Every stage of an Antipodes digital source is designed to minimise electronic noise, and then the whole is fine-tuned to avoid noise nodes (when two noise sources generate a noise peak at the same frequency). Antipodes expertise in this field is what makes our products sound better. Our unique approach means we can avoid the noise filters used in other products. A perfect square wave needs infinite bandwidth, and noise filters inherently limit bandwidth, impairing impulse response, and thereby damaging the fidelity of the digital signal. This is particularly important for high resolution files that require even wider bandwidth. The result is not just digital without the nasties, but music that captures both the life and the subtle expression in music.

The DX is the ultimate expression of Antipodes’ expertise with this method, due to the premium parts and execution throughout the DX design, all solid state storage and dedicated Level 2 ODAPS linear power supplies for each stage, enhanced by the inert nature of its all thick alloy panel construction.

By providing your DAC with an unfiltered, high bandwidth, ultra-low-noise, precision-clocked digital signal, your DAC can perform to its full potential. With almost any DAC you will experience sound that is organic and tonally rich with natural timbres, and yet with no lack of resolution, speed and dynamics. It turns out that the source is critical in computer audio too.
