ROON
Sorry, your browser does not support inline SVG.
Step 1 - Set The Output

For a Trio or Duet, you need to set the output to be used (skip this step for a CORE Server). At the GUI, click on Settings.

Gui Settings


Click on the RoonReady icon.

RoonReady Settings


Set the output. 'Auxiliary Outputs' refers to S/PDIF, AES3 and Analog (if fitted) outputs. If appropriate, set the volume setting preference and DSD file handling preference and then click on 'Save changes'. The output is now set.

Step 2 - Setup A Control Point

For all except an EDGE Renderer you need to setup your Control Point. For a computer that you wish to use as a remote control for Roon, browse to Roon Labs, download Roon and install it. For a tablet or smartphone search on Roon at your device's App Store and download it. These apps are all free to use as Control Point software. You only need a license for the Server App that is already installed on your Antipodes (on all except the EDGE Renderer).

Follow Roon's process for installation, but the following points will assist you:

  1. you will be asked if you are intending to use the installation as a remote control and the answer is yes,
  2. select the Antipodes that you wish to control (you can change this later),
  3. skip the step that specifies the location of your music files as this is set correctly automatically for you, and
  4. your Antipodes will show up as a RoonReady device in Roon's Audio Setup screen.
For more detail see our HOW TO section.

GUI Settings


Click on the Squeezelite icon.

Squeezelite Settings


Set the output. 'Auxiliary Outputs' refers to S/PDIF, AES3 and Analog (if fitted) outputs. If appropriate, set the DSD file handling preference. Leave the other settings at the defaults unless you are sure you know what you are doing, and then click on 'Save changes'. The output is now set.

Step 2 - Setup A Control Point

For a Trio or Duet you need to setup your Control Point. For a computer that you wish to use as a remote control for SqueezeBox, at the GUI click on Apps.

GUI Apps


Click on the SqueezeBox Server icon and it will open in a new browser tab. Note that you select what to play on the left, the playlist appears on the right, the current Renderer device is shown at top right, and there is a link to Settings at the bottom right of the screen. Note that if you copy music to the Antipodes you will need to navigate to SqueezeBox Settings to rescan the library to have access to the copied music. Ripped music will be scanned in automatically.

SqueexeBox Server


Remote control of SqueezeBox is much better on a tablet or smartphone. Search on SqueezeBox at your device's App Store and select a remote app. We recommend iPeng for iOS devices and Orange Squeeze for Android devices.

For more detail see our HOW TO section.

For help with using SqueezeBox see the SqueezeBox Forums.

MPD
Sorry, your browser does not support inline SVG.
Step 1 - Set The Output

MPD can be used with a Trio or Duet as it has a basic server capability, or can be used with an EDGE to be used as a DLNA Renderer. To setup MPD you need to set the output to be used. At the GUI, click on Settings.

GUI Settings


Click on the MPD Icon.

MPD Settings


Set the output. 'Auxiliary Outputs' refers to S/PDIF, AES3 and Analog (if fitted) outputs. If appropriate, set the DSD file handling preference, and then click on 'Save changes'. The output is now set.

Step 2 - Setup A Control Point

You need to setup a Control Point. For a computer that you wish to use as a remote control for MPD, download Cantata - use the '.exe' file for Windows or the '.dmg' file for a Mac.

For a tablet or smartphone search on MPD at your device's App Store and select a remote application. For iOS there is mPad and mPod. For Android there is a variety of apps and we recommend MPDroid.

For more detail see our HOW TO section.

HQPlayer NAA
Sorry, your browser does not support inline SVG.

To setup your Antipodes (all except the CORE Server) as a HQPlayer NAA, you just need to install HQPlayer on the Antipodes, and the rest is managed from the HQPlayer main application running on a separate computer.

For more detail see our HOW TO section.

DLNA Server
Sorry, your browser does not support inline SVG.

Antipodes (all except the CORE Server) can be setup as a DLNA Renderer by setting up MPD - this will make the Antipodes visible as a player device within DLNA Control Point software.

Antipodes (all except the EDGE Renderer) can be setup as a DLNA Server. Install DLNA Server from the Available Apps, and then at the GUI click on Settings.

GUI Settings


Click on the DLNA Server icon

DLNA Settings


Click on the button to Rescan the library, and when the screen refreshes click on the Save changes button. The Antipodes will now be seen by DLNA Control Point apps as an available DLNA Server.

You can also install Minimserver and/or BubbleUPnP for a wider and richer set of UPnP capabilities. For these apps, once you have installed them on the Antipodes there is no more setup required in the Antipodes GUI. Instead click on Apps in the GUI and then on the Minimserver or BubbleUPnP icon and you will be taken to the standard setup web interface for that application. You can then proceed to complete the installation, and read guides or get support at the respective websites.

For more detail see our HOW TO section.

PLEX Media Server
Sorry, your browser does not support inline SVG.

Antipodes (all except the EDGE Renderer) can be easily setup as a PLEX Media Server. Antipodes devices run the Server app and you will need a Plex Renderer app running on another device to render, for example, movies to a screen.

Many Smart TVs can act as a Plex renderer, and compatible devices include Xbox/Playstation, and Windows, Mac or Linux PCs/laptops, or any smartphone/tablet. If you wish to use a DLNA Renderer that is not a Plex Renderer then PLEX Media Server is also able to be setup as a DLNA Server from within the PLEX Media Server app.

Once installed there is no more setup required in the Antipodes GUI and you complete the setup through the PLEX website. To do this, at the GUI click on Apps.

GUI Apps


Click on the PLEX Media Server icon and you will taken to the standard setup web interface for PLEX Media Server.

Plex Settings

Setting your Antipodes (all except the EDGE Renderer) as a Music Library source for a SONOS system is very straight-forward. At the GUI click on Settings.

GUI Settings


Click on the SONOS Auto Configure icon.

SONOS Settings


Check the SONOS Auto Configure box and then Click on the Save changes button, and you are done. Your Antipodes will now be found as a music source on your SONOS remote control devices.
