Onkyo DP-X 1 in the Test

Onkyo will mobile music playback with the DP-X 1 on new feet make. Especially in the sound quality, the Mobile Player to set standards. Really? We listen closely in the test.

Does it really still a further mobile music player in addition to the Smartphone? We find: Yes! Finally, we know the weaknesses of current smartphones, when it comes to real audiophile pleasure. Because the Japanese engineers at Onkyo have also not deaf, they have come up with the DP-X 1 a an exceptional Mobile Player drop: one in which turns everything around the music quality.

It all starts with the components. Not one, no two D/A converter of the type of Sabre ES9018K2M in addition to the right Headphone amplifiers Sabre 9601 K are used, so that a symmetrical design is possible. In addition, the Board of the audio components from the motherboard is separated. So much effort needs space, of course so the unit is considerably larger and heavier than a current Smartphone, and it is with its edgy design also not particularly good in the hand.

But, there’s a balanced headphone output, the same can be operated in two modes. The format is to the four-pin 2.5 mm jack but quite unusual, especially as Onkyo attaches no adapter. A normal 3.5 mm jack can be found however, then one is in turn limited to conventional, unsymmetische headphones.

The converter chips are amazing. They decode not only HiRes audio in PCM format (24-bit up to 384 kHz), but also DSD stream with up to 11.2 MHz. for the first time also supports the new HiRes format MQA Onkyo with this player (for information, see page 10). Via your own online shop, you can buy MQA-encoded songs and download directly via Wi-FI on the device. There is enough space, 32 GB of internal memory and two slots for micro-SD cards deliver storage together over 400 GB.

Control everything down to Smartphone-style – it’s no wonder, because finally runs on the player Android in version 5.1.1. The special Onkyo Player app does a good job, made both visually and by their functions. A graphic equalizer with Spectrum Analyzer real-time stands out particularly. There’s even EQ presets by famous musicians, that you can download. Who doesn’t like these digital audio gadgets, which can but also simply disable the DSP functions in the settings.

Since the headphone output delivers a particularly strong signal, you should use high-efficiency headphone. In the test, we took the Sennheiser HD800S and the Audezé EL-8ti. Especially with the Sennheiser, the Onkyo sounded wonderfully fresh and transparent. He made up a beautiful wide stage with a fine detail of the MIDs and highs, as we still had not heard it from mobile devices.

Conclusion

If there is a reason, in addition to the Smartphone to carry yet another device to himself: the Onkyo DP-X 1 is it! He sounds round and unstrained with a good amount of transparency and handles just about any file format. You should treat him but a good set of headphones with high efficiency.
