Sony PS-HX 500 Test

With the Sony PS-HX 500 you can buy a whole package of services for 500 euro: a player for LPs and singles, along with a up helper for weak signals – and a connector to the digital world. There’s free good sound House.

He woke up craving. When Sony introduced a brand new turntables, a test was immediately set. Finally, Sony as a digital pioneer had been suspicious for decades of any analog upgrade. And also the commitment of the former place deer in the audio area had back developed into very manageable efforts, although Japanese multi from hear again suitable for HiFi devices can be for quite some time with some serious high-resolution.

The distinctive label “Hi-res audio” emblazoned on the front of the PSHX 500 is Sony’s new Leno with his full name. Without the help of an external analog-to-digital converter, the analog sampling as digital numbers power emits the 500 on a rear USB port. This is nothing new, because also manufacturers like Pro-Ject or Audio Technica rely on this feature; Meanwhile, even 50-euro plates milling from the depths of the mass market that are equipped. About the sound arts of such plane however, courtesy is silent of the singer.

At the Sony, however, the built-in high performance chip Burr Brown PCM 4202 puts out not only WAV files up to 24-bit / 192 kHz, what has already audiophile merits, but the analog signal resolves also to the direct stream digital (DSD). DSD was co-developed by Sony, to preserve digital among others old analog tapes at a higher than the unsatisfactory resolution of the CD. Super physically to access audio CD, DSD is again increasing popular. Disembodied yodels out of PCM4202 the 1-bit signal not only with normal (DSD 64), but also with double sampling frequency (DSD 128).

The application software for the hotel’s Windows or Mac computer is on CD. There Not even in the Internet, it’s loaded handy trainings camp and – pardon – foolproof to use. A huge praise from the author. “Quickly and easily digitize LP and single – estimate” functionality is open to the non – skilled person thus including archiving, title and Keywording. But there’s still something?

Correctly, as a turntable of Riementriebler (small motor pulley, belts to inner ring under the plate) must prove themselves. On the outside, the “Board” player makes a good impression with its functional simple design, the 30 mm strong, black lacquered MDF corpus, the clean polished aluminum plate and above all the confidence-inspiring, apparently developed arm. Sony bought the Pickup: who bets on the moving-magnet system Audio Technica AT 95 E, is likely to have good cards.

But the good pickup was initially almost unrecognizable. So queasy, polished and listless does not play on this proven champion but otherwise? The answer: the jury had – a necessary speed correction, see measuring laboratory – switched to line output, so the built-in PreAmp entrusted with after de-skew and before reinforcing the silent MM signals. But he’s good for background sound or for the bridge until a clever phono pre in the home is. In the listening room, just the musical fidelity was V90 LPS (to 180 euros), helped the Sony prompt mightily on the feet.

There they were again the analog snappiness and balancing,: Peter Gabriel (“intruder”), Tori Amos (“pretty good year”) and Axl Rose of guns n’Roses (“Paradise City”) as unleashed laid off and their characteristic sound clothes kept on it. Bass stability, picture sharpness and detail were also high demands satisfied. There you go, we go.

Conclusion

We are pleased that Sony hired on for HiRes audio – and with a record player. He serves as a convenient bridge builder between the analogue and digital worlds. After a short time, operate the corresponding software is likely to make also digital muffles fun. And when it comes to pure listening to plates, 500 also not rude just lets one of the HP HX. With a regular phono stage, the multi service provider meets a really good sound. Given the price a hit.
