How High-Resolution Audio works
Listen like you're in the recording studio
High-Resolution Audio works by converting analog sound to digital at a higher and more precise rate than CDs. High-Resolution Audio can have a rate of 24bit/96Hz, capturing more of the details and subtleties in your music. Hear your tracks exactly as they were recorded with no compromise on sound.
Restore all your compressed files
The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) upscales your compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC, and WMA) close to CD quality. By restoring the high-range sound lost during compression, DSEE produces your digital music files in rich, natural sound, closer to the quality of the original recording.

High Resolution Audio
High-Resolution Audio takes your digital music to another level. By converting analog music to digital at a higher rate than CDs—24 bit/192 kHz, as opposed to the 16 bit/44.1 kHz rate of CDs—High-Resolution Audio delivers better-than-CD quality sound, so you get closer to the original studio master recording.
DSEE technology upgrades the quality of your compressed music files. When an original music source is compressed, you lose the high frequency elements of your music. DSEE restores these elements to produce high quality sound that’s closer to the original CD recording.
Front-mounted LCD display screen
You can navigate your entire collection with ease using the front-mounted LCD display screen. Alternately, you can download the dedicated smartphone app and manage your music from there.
Automatic file transfer
Whenever you add new music to your collection, the HDD audio player automatically copies the files from your PC to the player’s on-board hard drive via LAN or Wi-Fi® connection.
Listen to your entire collection, regardless file format. The HDD Audio Player supports a range of compressed and uncompressed file types, including FLAC, WAV, AIFF, DSD (DFF), and DSD (DSF).
By cross-referencing your music collection with the online database, the HDD Audio Player ensures that artist names and track titles are always up to date. The player also automatically adds song titles when you add music, so you’ll never be confronted by unnamed mystery tracks.
