Why choose a Hi-Res Digital Audio Player?

DP-X1 Digital Audio Player

Closer to the studio recording

High resolution audio brings you as close as possible to the original studio master recording, with a wide frequency bandwidth and a high dynamic range that exceeds the capabilities of CD and lossy formats such as MP3.

Retaining the details

High resolution files played on a Hi-Res Audio system retain the subtle details usually lost when using lower resolution formats. Benefits include improved bass timing and tightness, extra high frequency definition and detail, more open spatial sound and an improved overall perception of realism.

An Entertainment Player without limits

Onkyo has blazed an 'end to end' trail for Hi-Res audio, including content from the OnkyoMusic download service, a series of award-winning hi-res software apps, as well as our huge range of hi-res amplifiers, AVRs, portable headphone amps, headphones, and loudspeakers. To that list, Onkyo is now adding its first Hi-Res digital audio player (DAP). And it's anything but ordinary. The DP-X1 incorporates every lesson it has learnt as an audio maker over the last 70 years, to create a DAP that will deliver sensational Hi-Res audio and streaming on the go.

Intuitive Control

Many manufacturers concentrate solely on performance when it comes to Digital Audio Players but that's simply not enough. As well as equipping the DP-X1 with state-of-the-art digital audio t echnology - to deliver class-leading sonic performance - Onkyo has also thought hard about how to make accessing all that great Hi-Res entertainment as straightforward as possible. The result is a simple user interface that quickly becomes second nature. Which means you'll spend less time getting to grips with the player... and more time enjoying it!

High end DAC and Amp with balanced output support, based on Android™ OS.

• Dual ESS Technology DAC "ES9018K2M" and Amp "SABRE 9601K" • Standard Balanced (BTL) and Active Control Ground (ACG) modes • 2.5mm 4 pole and 3.5mm 3 pole output • Audio circuit board (DAC/Amp board) separated and isolated from Main circuit board (CPU board) • Closed loop circuit design to limit noise • Support for up to 432GB of storage (up to 200GB per micro SD slot and 32GB internal storage) • Micro USB-B/OTG digital output

The perfect solution for your Hi-Res Audio music

DP-X1 Digital Audio Player

DP-X1 Features

  • Home Screen

    Arrange your home screen the way you want

    Just as you would with a typical smartphone, it's a straightforward matter to drag and drop icons and apps to get the home screen organised just the way you want it.

    Onkyo Music

    Direct download from OnkyoMusic

    There is no need to 'sync' with a home computer to import hi-res audio. Music can be purchased and downloaded directly to the DPX1 from the OnkyoMusic store. OnkyoMusic is a music download service for Hi-Res audio files (available in theUS, UK and Germany), Get the latest releases in Hi-Res to hear music beyond CD quality, just as the artist intended.

    X-DAP Link

    Manage music easily with 'X-DAP Link' (for Windows)

    X-DAP handles the management and transfer of non-DRM protected music to the DP-X1. X-DAP Link will search any Windows PC it's installed on for any and all music files that it can find, including music purchased from other services. Just select which storage device to transfer the music to and X-DAP Link will transfer the song and related metadata across - it's as simple as that.

    4.7 inch screen

    Large easy to use 4.7 inch screen

    The DP-X1 has a familiar 4.7 inch (1280 x 720) screen size that most smartphone users are already comfortable with. The large screen area means that a large number of App icons can be be displayed onscreen, as well as making it easy to watch video and operate the GUI (Graphical user interface). The capacitive touch display also allows the intuitive use of flicks, taps and scrolling gestures.

  • Google Play and Android

    Supports Google Play and Android APPs

    The DP-X1 goes beyond just being a hi-res music player. Users can install their favourite streaming apps, video services, games, and much more. That's why we call it an entertainment player without limits...

    DSD Playback

    Playback support for a wide range of Hi-Res formats

    The DP-X1 was designed, from the outset, to support as many audio formats as possible. Maxing out at 11.2MHz DSD, the DP-X1 supports up to 384kHz/24bit audio. Factor in support for WAV, FLAC, ALAC and AIFF, and it's clear the DP-X1 is a machine designed for the Hi-Res age.

    MQA Support

    Industry-first support for the "MQA" format

    MQA is a revolution in Hi-Res, a completely different way of capturing, delivering and reproducing audio performances which preserve the imagic of the original studio recording in a format/file size that's small enough to stream. Amazing. Which is why the DP-X1 will support MQA (delivered via a firmware upgrade).

    32 GB Storage

    Up to 432GB of expandable storage

    There's 32 GB of internal storage plus dual micro SDXC card slots, which means total storage can be expanded to 432GB. With up to 16 hours of playback, users can carry a huge library of Hi-Res audio in their pocket.

  • Twin DAC

    Symmetrical Twin DAC & AMP circuit design

    Symmetrical circuit design for the shortest and equal distance gives greater control over balanced signals.

    Realtime DSD conversion & Hi-Res Upsampling

    Realtime DSD conversion & Hi-Res Upsampling

    The DP-X1 can upconvert all audio, from Hi-Res content to compressed audio, to DSD quality in real-time. There's built-in support for upsampling (up to 384 kHz) so you can enjoy all your content in Hi-Res audio quality.

    Wireless connection

    Wireless connection

    Balanced output via the 2.5mm/4-pole headphone socket supports both the esoteric 'ACG (Active Control GND)' drive system as well as the more common 'BTL (Bridge-Tied) system.

    Digital Filters

    Digital Filters

    Three Digital Filters - SHARP, SLOW, SHORT - allow users to adjust sonic characteristics on the fly. SHARP: A standard filter that that keeps the sound, SLOW: Improved response, allowing for softer resonance and natural sounds, SHORT: Improves linear starup of sound, bringing the sound forward

  • High Precision EQ-HD

    High Precision EQ-HD circuit

    With up to 16,384 discrete bands to select from and the ability to save up to 1000 EQ profiles, the linearphase FIR equaliser offers high definition equalisation with zero loss in audio quality.

    Stand alone mode

    Stand alone mode

    Unlike 'Airplane Mode', this ensures that ALL sources that can create digital noise (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®, andthe display), are turned off, for the purest possible audio experience. Handily, when in stand-alone mode, the user can still operate the physical control buttons for volume and track selection control.
