Antipodes DS Core Ripper and Music Server
The DS uses the same core server technology as the DX, and so is similarly open, dynamic and musically expressive.
$1350 Per additional TB Solid State Storage; $200 per TB HDD Storage
The DS achieves a lower entry price point than the DX mainly by using customised 2.5" (laptop) spinning drives, and an innovative new switching/linear power supply (fully linear regulated output).
The innovations in the new 3rd generation DS dramatically reduce the noise floor compared to all previous DS models, eliminating digital glare and grain, for a huge gain in musical expression.
