The XDP-300 R is a portable media player with state-of-the-art converter technology. Two absolutely top-class D/A converters with separate channels are ready to transform high-resolution PCM with a resolution as high as 24 bit/384 kHz, DSD with an up to quadruple data rate (11.2 MHz) and MQA files into natural, extremely low-noise sound. ESS chips are also used as output amplifiers in order to incite the highest performance in even the most demanding headsets: the two SABRE9601K chips drive the most challenging loads with high efficiency and a sound that truly does justice to ultra-high-resolution recordings. A symmetrical 2.5 mm output is available in addition to the conventional 3.5 mm jack output. Converter and output stages are mounted on an entirely separate PCB for optimum low interference. Plenty of space in other words for outstanding high-resolution music that can be downloaded right on the player thanks to direct access to the Onkyo Music download shop.
