Up for your listening pleasure is one of the most respected names in music servers, Antipodes from new Zealand. This is a DS Reference which is a very special unit. Thats because it comes with a LINEAR power supply inside. No SMPS making all sorts of noise. This unit runs Squeezebox Server and has an app for your phone or tablet for control. Comes with 2TB HDD loaded with music. This is however a 32 Bit machine, and the newest software is 64 bit, so if you d like it upgraded a newer motherboard and RAM is required before loading software. Hence the amazing price on this unit.
Now, heres the great news.The unit is at a USA based Antipodes upgrade center in GA. Available for only $1K is the 64 bit newer motherboard with the new RAM and the whole software suite. The newer motherboard can run the SSD's and comes loaded with Roon server and the whole current suite of apps. Once this unit is upgraded the sound will be nearly the same as a DX Reference due to the linear power supply. So for a fraction of the cost of a DX Ref, you can get all the sonic benefits. Also included is a RFI noise reduction treatment and RF shielded internal cables which make a huge difference.
This is an amazing opportunity to join the level of the world class music servers at the price of a DIY cheapy.
With upgrade a 1TB SSD is available for an additional $400 and a 2TB for $800
Shipping is $25 in USA, more elsewhere
Unit has been checked and tested and works perfectly..
