Dual DACs and Amps Drive
Listen to your favorite Hi-Res audio formats in high quality audio-based on solid audio design and high grade circuitry, driven by a class leading DAC and Amp.
Playback support for a wide range of Hi-Res formats
The DP-X1 was designed to support many high fidelity audio formats. 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. 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-X1 offers plenty of ways to enjoy music.
Industry First Support for MQA
MQA* is a revolutionary end-to-end technology that delivers master quality audio in a file that’s small enough to stream or download. And because it’s fully authenticated, you can be sure you’re hearing exactly what the artist approved in the studio.
*Support for MQA format is via free update.
Expanded Storage for Extended Enjoyment
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, you can carry an expansive music library and listen for extended periods of time.
(16 hour playback based on 96kHz/24bit unbalanced output)
Dual Class-Leading DAC and Amp Setup
Two ESS Technology Sabre ES9018K2M DACs and two Sabre 9601K amps allow for extraordinary power and control from a portable device.
Symmetrical Twin DAC and Amp Circuit Design
Optimal component placement of the twin DACs and amps for symmetric circuit design (short, equal distance) yields greater control over balanced signals.
Noise Isolating Circuit Design
Similar to the build used in audio receivers, the DAC & amp board is separated from the CPU board to minimize noise and maximize performance. Within the DAC & amp board, the audio circuitry and switching power are also separated to reduce noise. The DACs & amps have their own capacitors to provide a clean audio signal with closed loop design that improves audio signal quality for all audio formats.
Two Types of Balanced Drive
Balanced output via the 2.5mm 4-pole jack supports the more standard balanced (BTL) drive as well as the more esoteric Active Control Ground (ACG) drive. ACG drive is a different form of balanced drive where the amp’s cold side actively drives to create an ideally stable GND. Power gains and increased sound separation increase stability for a clean signal and greater sound clarity, especially compared to unbalanced drive.
Active Control Ground (ACG) features:
- Increased S/N ratio, greater spatial dimensionality, and clean sound
- Greater delineation for lower frequencies in Hi-Res audio
- Overall robust and taut sound
Realtime DSD Conversion
Converts all audio (from Hi-Res to compressed) into DSD quality with realtime DSD conversion over Digital out. The DP-X1 oversamples and pushes bit quantization outside the audible spectrum for crystal clear signal.
Upsampling for Hi-Res Sound Quality
Upsamples up to 384kHz (through Digital out). Enjoy all content upsampled to Hi-Res audio quality.
Quick Selection of Playback
Select Balance output, Realtime DSD conversion, and upsampling easily, even during playback.
Lock Range Adjust Eliminates Jitter Noise
Adjust the 7-position lock range to limit jitter noise, improving S/N ratio.
Digital Filters Adjust Sound Characteristics
SHARP, SLOW, SHORT digital filters adjust sound characteristics on the fly.
High Precision EQ-HD
With up to 16,384 discrete bands to adjust and the ability to save up to 1,000 EQ profiles, the linear- phase FIR equalizer offers high definition equalization with zero loss in audio quality.
Experience sound presets created by professional musicians.
Stand Alone Mode For a Pure Audio Experience
In Stand Alone Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® and the display, which are sources that can create digital noise, are turned off. During Stand Alone Mode, use the physical volume knob and playback buttons to control your music.
Manage Music Easily with “X-DAP Link”
Manage and transfer your non-DRM protected music to the DP-X1. X-DAP Link searches your music libraries, including music purchased from other services, and transfers the song and related metadata to the selected storage location on the DP-X1.
Android OS with intuitive GUI design
Built on Android 5.1.1, with a fast quad core 2.2GHz CPU and 2GB RAM, the DP-X1 easily supports powerful DSP, the latest apps and is fully customizable.
Large, Easy-to-Use Touch Screen
The DP-X1 features a 4.7” (1280 x 720) screen size many smartphone users have become accustomed to. The capacitive touch display allows for intuitive use of flicks, taps and scrolling gestures. All icons, physical buttons and knobs are positioned with one handed operation in mind. Playback control in the music player supports flick gestures for track advancing, and tapping the progress circle allows for direct control of track positioning.
Direct Download From OnkyoMusic
OnkyoMusic download service offers the latest music releases and remastered albums in hi-res for beyond-CD quality audio. Install the OnkyoMusic app to purchase and download directly within the player over Wi-Fi – no need to sync with a home computer.
Stream Audio to Another System
Wi-Fi Direct (Play Thru, via free update) enables the DP-X1 to stream audio wirelessly to other devices. The Onkyo Remote App facilitates wireless streaming to an Onkyo system, and allows you to use the DP-X1 as a remote controller, too. In addition to streaming over Wi-Fi, aptX makes high quality audio possible over Bluetooth.
