Description
BEST SOUND QUALITY

The DX is our flagship music server, optimised for playback from internal solid state storage, up to 3TB, for the best possible audio performance.

All Antipodes music servers can also play 'direct' from a NAS, achieving high quality audio performance by avoiding UPnP/DLNA. Therefore playback from a NAS can be used to augment storage capacity of the DX without a noticeable sonic penalty.

"[with 'direct' playback set up] the difference I noted between NAS and locally stored music all but evaporated." Michael Lavorna, Audiostream April 2015.
This is fundamentally different to the use of UPnP/DLNA, and instead replicates playback from internal storage, far exceeding the performance possible from UPnP/DLNA playback. Some setup of your NAS is required for 'direct' playback, but our support team will do that for you remotely over the internet - you just need to book the session. With 'direct' playback, internal and external music will appear as a single combined library, with files stored internally sounding only marginally more immediate and resolved.

The DX belongs in 'top-drawer' audio systems where its superior music-making is obvious.
