High-Quality Components: The Onkyo DP-X1 hi-res portable digital audio
player delivers exceptional sound quality thanks to its dual ESS Sabre DACs &
amps, symmetrical twin DAC & circuit design, noise isolating circuitry, and
closed loop configuration. Your digital music library will sound the way the
- Dual ESS Sabre DACs & Amps: Two ESS Technology Sabre ES9018K2M
32-bit/192kHz DACs and two Sabre 9601K amps allow for extraordinary power and control from
a portable device. The double ESS Sabre ES9018K2M DACs and double ESS Sabre
9601K amps make balanced output possible via a 2.5mm output.
- Symmetrical Twin DAC & 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.
- Closed Loop Design: 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 Drives (BTL & ACG): 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.
- BTL (Balanced): The BTL drive supplies increased power. Power
gains and increased sound separation associated with balanced output are
repurposed to create increased stability for a clean signal and greater
sound clarity, especially compared to unbalanced drive.
- ACG (Active Control Ground): The ACG drive gives greater
stability with increased S/N ratio, greater spatial dimensionality, and
clean sound; plus greater delineation for lower frequencies in hi-res audio;
and overall robust sound.
Android OS & Google Play: The Onkyo DP-X1 utilizes a
super flexible and intuitive Android (5.1.1) operating system & user interface,
plus a fast quad-core 2.2GHz CPU and 2GB RAM with support for powerful digital
signal processing (DSP) and the latest Android compatible applications. And
because the DP-X1 is based on the Android platform, it also supports the
Google Play Store. From The Google Play Store you have access to many apps
Pandora for almost endless
music streaming and downloading resources.
Touchscreen & Physical Buttons: The Onkyo DP-X1 features a 4.7" (1280
x 720) capacitive touchscreen display for control, song/artist info, and album
art. The capacitive touchscreen display allows for intuitive use of flicks, taps
and scrolling gestures that smartphone users are already accustomed to. All
touchscreen 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. Physical buttons offer quick music control with no need to
turn on the touchscreen display.
Built-In & External Storage: With 32GB of internal storage and dual
microSD card slots, storage can be expanded to 432GB. Each microSD card slot
will support SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards up to 200GB. No microSD/SDHC/SDXC
memory card is included (all sold separately).
Hi-Res Audio: The Onkyo DP-X1 was designed to support many audio
formats, including compressed, lossless, and hi-res audio. 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.
- Supported Audio Formats: DSD (DSF/DSDIFF), FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF,
Ogg-Vorbis, MP3, AAC, & MQA (via free update)
- Sampling Frequencies & Bit-Rates:
44.1/48/88.2/96/176.4/192/352.8/384 kHz (16 bit/24/32-bit), 2.8/5.6/11.2 MHz
MQA Compatible: MQA is not typical hi-res, a high bit-rate or high
sample rate audio. It is a completely new and different way of capturing,
delivering and reproducing audio performances, and it preserves the magic of the
original studio recording in a format that is still small enough to stream
Note: Support for MQA format comes mid-2016 via a free update.
Upsampling & Conversion: The Onkyo DP-X1 has the ability to upsample &
upconvert your digital music library to make it sound even better through its
microUSB-B/OTG digital output (not analog output).
- Hi-Res Upsampling: The DP-X1 upsamples 44.1k, 48k, 88.2k, 96k,
176.4k, and 192k music files up to 352.8/384kHz through its microUSB-B/OTG
digital output (not analog output). Enjoy all your digital music content
upsampled to Hi-Res audio quality.
- DSD Conversion: Turn on "Real-Time DSD Conversion" and the DP-X1
converts music files such as MP3, WAV, and FLAC into DSD-quality audio
through its microUSB-B/OTG digital output (not analog output). Use of
oversampling and pushing bit quantization outside the audible spectrum
allows for very clear audio signals. 44.1k, 48k, 88.2k, 96k, 176.4k, 192k,
352.8k, and 384k music files can be converted to DSD 2.8/5.6Mhz.
X-DAP Link: Manage and transfer your non-DRM protected music on your
Windows or Mac computer to the Onkyo DP-X1's built-in memory or insert microSD
card (not included) using
Link. The DP-X1 will connect to your computer via the included
microUSB-to-USB cable. 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.

finite impulse response (FIR) equalizer offers high definition equalization
with zero loss in audio quality.
- Sound Presets: Experience sound presets created by professional
- Digital Filters: By modifying the filter
characteristics of the built-in digital converter you can modify the audio
sound quality for output to headphones. Sharp, Slow, & Short digital filters adjust
sound characteristics on the fly. The Sharp mode improves linear startup of
sound, bringing the sound forward. The Slow mode improves response,
particularly for stringed instruments, allowing for softer resonance and
natural sound. The Short mode keeps the sound characteristic neutral.
- Lock Range: You can improve sound quality by adjusting
the lock range of the audio input signal's jitter (modulation). Adjust the 7-position lock range to limit jitter
noise, improving S/N ratio. Narrowing the lock range will dampen jitter
noise's effect on sound.
- Stand Alone Mode: In Stand Alone Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
and the touchscreen 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.
