Superior sound by design

How High-Resolution Audio works

High-Resolution Audio refers to a collection of digital processes allowing the encoding and playback of music using higher sampling rates than those used in CDs.

44.1KHZ / 16 BIT [CD]
96KHZ / 24 BIT [HIGH-RESOLUTION]

Engineered for exceptional sound

Two super-tweeters, two mid-range speakers and a subwoofer work together, driven by a total of five high-powered amplifiers and made of premium materials—for results that will be music to your ears.

  • 7-way speaker + 2 passive radiators
  • Super tweeter
  • Magnetic Fluid
  • Subwoofer
  • Dual Passive Radiators

S-Master™ HX

S-Master HX™ digital amp technology, developed for High-Resolution Audio, reduces distortion and noise across a wide frequency range – for rich, full-bodied sound.

Music enriched

DSEE HX™ upscales your existing music to near high-resolution sound quality, and makes you feel as if you are really there at the recording studio or concert.

ClearAudio+

ClearAudio+ optimises audio so you hear all your music with clarity and separation.

Savour every note

Traditional amps require multiple digital to analogue conversions—each affecting quality.  The S-Master amp is 100% digital for more power without distortion, improving efficiency and reducing size. Enhanced for High-Resolution Audio, the S-Master HX digital amplifier reduces noise levels for the precision needed with high frequency ranges (above 40kHz).

Restore all your compressed files

The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) upscales your compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC and WMA) and takes them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the high-range sound lost in the compression process, DSEE HX produces your digital music files in rich, natural sound, closer to the quality of the original recording.
