Absolute Sound Review by Steven Stone - Sept. 2016



Dual DACs and AMPs for Stunning Control & Power

The DP-X1 has two amps and two digital/analog convertors that allow for extreme power and signal control.

The double ESS Sabre ES9018K2M DACs and double ESS Sabre 9601K amps make balanced output possible via 2.5 mm output.The DP-X1 is the only player with such an advanced configuration, and the result is unprecedented power and control. 

The DP-X1 also has two types of balanced drives: ACG and BTL, for greater stability and clean, crystal clear sound.

Balanced Drive Options

Balanced 2.5mm 4-pole output supports the more standard Balanced (BTL) drive as well as the more esoteric ACG (Active Control GND) drive.

ACG drive gives greater stability: increased S/N ratio; greater spatial dimensionality, and clean sound; greater deliniation for lower frequencies in hi-res audio, and overall robust and taut sound. 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.


The DP-X1 was designed to support many audio formats. 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.

With its 2.5mm 4-pole balanced output, 3.5mm 3-pole headphone jack, micro USB-B/OTG digital output, and wireless playback options, the DP-X1 offers plenty of ways to enjoy music.

In addition to streaming over Wi-Fi, aptX also makes high quality audio possible over Bluetooth.

Innovative Sound

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. Support for MQA format comes via a free update. 

(Support for MQA format comes mid-2016 via a free update.)

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. Use of oversampling and pushing bit quantization outside the audible spectrum allows for very clear signals. Everything sounds great!

Massive Storage Capacity

With 32GB of internal storage and dual micro-SDXC card slots, storage can be expanded to 432GB. With up to 16 hours of playback, you can carry an expansive library of hi-res audio and listen for extended periods of time.

(16 hour playback based on 96kHz/24-bit unbalanced output.)

Direct Access to Hi-Res Downloads and Streaming

OnkyoMusic is a music download service for hi-res audio files. Install the OnkyoMusic app and there is no need to sync with a home computer. Music can be purchased and dowloaded directly from the app within the player.

High Precision EQ

With up to 16,384 discrete bands to select from and the ability to save up to 1,000 EQ profiles, the linear-phase finite impulse response (FIR) equalizer offers high definition equalization with zero loss in audio quality.

Easy to Use Android Interface

The DP-X1 has a super flexible and intuitive Android platform, and with its fast quad core, it can support heavy processing and many high function apps. The capacitive touch display allows for intuitive use of flicks, taps and scrolling gestures. All icons and physical buttons are positioned for easy operation. 

You have access to many apps like Tidal, Spotify, Pandora for almost endless music streaming and downloading resources.
