TWICE VIP Award 2016 Winner! Onkyo’s DP-X1, high-resolution digital audio player (DAP) is the culmination of 70 years of designing and engineering audio products, and enables high-res audio and streaming wherever you go. Maxing out at 11.2MHz DSD support, the DP-X1 also supports up to 384kHz/24-bit audio with support for WAV, FLAC, ALAC, AIFF and is among the first to support MQA. With its 2.5mm four-pole balanced output, 3.5mm three-pole headphone jack, MicroUSB-B/OTG digital output, and wireless playback options, the DP-X1 offers plenty of ways to enjoy music. With 32GB of internal storage and dual micro SDXC card slots, storage can be expanded up to 432GB. And with up to 16 hours of playback time, consumers can carry an expansive music library and listen for extended periods of time. Two ESS Technology Sabre ES9018K2M DACs and two Sabre 9601K amps are designed to allow for extraordinary power and control from a portable device. Balanced output via the 2.5mm four-pole jack supports the more standard balanced (BTL) drive as well as the more esoteric Active Control Ground (ACG) drive. High precision EQ-HD features 16,384 discrete bands to adjust while audiophiles can further adjust digital filters and lock ranges. All this is backed by an Android 5.1.1 OS, quad-core 2.2GHz CPU, 2GB RAM and a 4.7-inch touchscreen.
