Playback support for a wide range of Hi-Res formats dsd
The DP-X1A was designed to support as many audio formats as possible. Maxing out at 11.2MHz DSD support, the DP-X1A also supports up to 384kHz/24bit audio. With support for WAV, FLAC, ALAC, MQA, AIFF, the DP-X1A has class leading support for audio formats. And with its 2.5mm 4 pole balanced output, 3.5mm 3 pole headphone jack, micro USB-B/OTG digital output, and wireless playback options, the DP-X1A offers plenty of ways to enjoy music.
MQA support mqa
Support for "MQA" format. MQA is not simply Hi-Res, high bit rate or high sample rate audio. It is a completely different way of capturing, delivering and reproducing audio performances which preserve the magic of the original sutido recodring in a format that is small enough to stream.
Up to 464GB of expandable storage
p2_cell_3_imgWith 64GB of internal storage and dual micro SDXC card slots, storage can be expanded to 464GB. With up to 16 hours of playback*, carry an expansive library of Hi-Res audio and listen for extended periods of time.
* 16 hour playback based on 96kHz/24bit unbalanced output
Twin unit class leading DAC and AMP ess
Incorporating 2 units of ESS Technology DAC "ES9018K2M" and AMP "SABRE 9601K" each allows for extreme high resolution audio and component audio design philosophy while still maintaining a realistic power envelop for a portable device.
Separated DAC & AMP from player to isolate noise
The DAC & AMP board is separated within from the CPU main board. This approach mimics the use separate amplifier and source components to minimize noise and maximize performance. Within the DAC & AMP board, the audio circuitry and switching power are distanced to keep noise at bay. The DAC & AMP have their own capcitors to provide a clean audio signal with its closed loop design. This design improves audio signal not only for Hi-Res sources, but for all audio as well.
