About Antipodes Audio

Antipodes Audio Limited was established in New Zealand in 2004, and is headquartered on the magnificent Kapiti Coast of New Zealand.

Antipodes is pronounced an-tip-uh-deez, and means a pair of opposite things, but is often used to refer to our part of the world. Europeans will often refer to New Zealand, Australia and anywhere at the opposite end of the earth as 'the antipodes'.

Today Antipodes has

  • Offices in New Zealand and the United States.
  • Distributors serving dealers and customers in 20 countries around the world.
  • Expert service centers, able to perform the full range of repairs and upgrades, located in the UK, USA, Canada, Hong Kong and New Zealand.

Our journey really began in 1994 when we started research and development into audio wire manufacture. Ten years later we launched Antipodes Audio Limited selling high-end audio cables using our proprietary wire, and quickly received many glowing reviews recognising the very musically rewarding presentation achievable using Antipodes wire.

Five years later, in 2009, we began research and development into music server technology, developing proprietary techniques for managing and tuning electronic noise in computer systems, and we launched our first music servers in 2011. Since then we have progressed through to develop our fourth generation of music server technology platform.

In 2016 we ceased production of our Antipodes wire and began rebuilding our wire plant to produce a new generation of wire employing our proprietary Optimised Lattice Long Crystal (OLLC) technology. This new technology represents a major breakthrough in audio cable design and we are working towards launching the new range of cables in 2018.
