The full-width Antipodes K30 is the entry model to the premium K-Series and is designed to deliver a large chunk of the K50's performance at a more affordable price.
The Antipodes K30 integrates two separately powered and isolated computation engines:
- A high power server engine to enable Server Apps to handle a large music library, re-assemble internet streams to recover the original file's sound quality, handle DSP features without loss of quality, and to serve the cleanest possible stream to the Player App. The K30 server engine delivers single core performance on a par with the K40 and K50 and only lacks the multi-core performance of the higher models.
- The K30 uses the same advanced player engine as is used in the K50, to run the selected Player App to provide high quality USB Audio output.
