ONKYO Audio System New Launch – DP-X1A

  • Dual DAC full balance circuit design
  • Large scale capacitors, with attention to the finer details to provide class leading audio quality portable digital audio player DP-X1A
  • Support for up to 11.2MHz DSD and 384 kHz/24 bit FLAC and WAV Hi-Res audio

As more Hi-Res audio titles become available in formats like DSD, FLAC, WAV and MQA there is a greater prevalence for player devices that support them and the desire to get closer to the source audio has grown. Driving users towards balanced output and the use of more exotic parts to drive that sound. With the advent of video and audio streaming, it has become easier to enjoy music on a more personalised level.

The “DP-X1A” supports up to DSD 11.2MHz, FLAC/WAV up to 384kHz/24 bit, and the latest MQA technology, fully balanced circuit design from the DACs to its output. Based on Android OS, and with built in Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi, the “DP-X1A” portable digital audio player can connect to a plethora of peripherals.

We have poured our years of experience in audio components into the “DP-X1A”.  Incorporating a pair of ESS Technology’s SABRE DACs, connected to a 2.5mm 4 pole balanced output. The balanced circuitry allows for the conventional BTL drive, and the more esoteric ACG (Active Control GND) allowing for greater stability and clear soundstage.  Overall, the circuitry design prioritized the elimination of noise entering the audio signal via extensive management of grounding and cleaning of power supply, allowing for not only Hi-Res music to sound great, but elevating the sound quality of compressed audio as well.

With internal memory of 64GBs and 2 microSD card slots, up to 464GB of storage is available for all forms of entertainment.  The class leading 4.7inch GorillaGlass touch screen and access to GooglePlayTM allow for app support beyond what is preloaded, such as music and video streaming services and games. Using the preloaded OnkyoMusic app, downloading High Res Audio files can be done without the need of a PC.
