Pioneer Digital Audio Player Becomes First Portable Player to Offer MQA

The following is a press release issued by Pioneer.

September 10, 2015 - There is a groundswell of “higher than CD quality” High Res audio formats and player devices that support them. With the mainstream growth for streaming audio and video services, many users are looking for more ways to enjoy their high res contents on thego.

Pioneer is proud to announce the “XDP-100R” Digital Audio Player. Based on Android OS, it supports many high res audio formats up to DSD 11.2MHz, 384kHz/24bit FLAC/WAV audio files, in addition to streaming audio and the upcoming MQA format.

The class leading 4.7 inch display can make Google Play apps further expand its capabilities. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support allow for a variety of wireless connectivity options.  With the preloaded OnkyoMusic app, you can download high res audio files without the need of a PC.  And with two micro SD card slots, along with the built in storage, you can max out the total storage up to 288GB.

The “XDP-100R” is based on our years of experience building component and portable audio devices. Based on ESS technology’s SABRE DAC ES9018K2M and SABRE 9601K, all functions within the “XDP-100R”are blocked off in a closed loop construction to eliminate any extraneous noise.  The audio board and CPU board are separated internally, further isolating sources of noise, using the same approach as separating an amplifier from the playback device in a component stereo.  It will improve the sound quality of your existing audio library.  You can import your existing music files simply via the X-DAP Link app. In addition to the rigid aluminum body, the top and bottom have removable bumpers to protect the cables/connectors from wear and tear.
