DS GT
DS GT Trio

The Antipodes DS GT is the 'hot rod' version of the DS Base, borrowing from the technology used in the DX, only making compromises where the impact on sound quality is not severe. The DS GT is not comparable to the DX, but sounds much closer to the DX than to the DS Base. It is therefore excellent value and ideal for users wanting a small foot-print device, delivering superb sound quality and a simple to use complete solution.

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 tuning of the DS GT is very similar to the DX because, like the DX, it uses all solid state storage and an ODAPS linear power supply. The result is sound quality that is second only to the DX.

The Antipodes DS GT trio (called a trio because it combines Auto-ripper, Server and Renderer functions in a single device) delivers true high-end audio performance, simplicity and ease of use. S/PDIF and Analog outputs are provided for convenience, and use of a high quality USB DAC is recommended in order to realise the full benefits of the DS GT.
