HI-RES & MQA AUDIO IN YOUR POCKET WITH PIONEER XDP-300R
Pioneer have been quietly chipping away at the portable audio player market and their latest release, the XDP-300R high resolution digital audio player is sure to be a hit.
With more and more headphones available on the market than ever before, the limitations of smartphones as music players have been realised. The XDP-300R portable digital audio player is the answer for users who want the ability to handle playback of any file type, and is capable of playback up to 11.2MHz DSD, 384kHz/24bit FLAC/WAV and the newest High Res technology MQA, with full balanced circuitry for the dual DACs to the output.
The addition of MQA capability, the revolutionary end-to-end technology that captures and delivers master quality audio in a file that is small enough to stream or download, fully authenticated, sets the XDP-300R apart from other digital audio players.
Add to that, it also comes equipped with 32Gb of internal storage and dual microSD card slots that support up to 200Gb each, making the total available storage up to a class leading 432Gb. With a GorillaGlass equipped 4.7 inch HD display, you can also access Google Play to download music, movies, and apps.
The XDP-300R is arguably the most capable portable player on the market today, and with dual ESS Technology SABRE DACs (ES9018K2M) and paired with SABRE (9601K) amps and balanced output, it's very clear this player is aimed at the audiophile on-the-go.
With a complete feature list too extensive to cover here, StereoNET is currently reviewing the XDP-300R now so watch out for that one soon.
Available now for $1299 RRP, for more information visit the Pioneer brand page.
