Exclusively unveiled at IFA 2015, the global trade show for consumer electronics, the Pioneer “XDP-100R” Digital Audio Player becomes the industry’s first portable player to offer MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) support.

Setting out to make its ‘best-ever audio player’, Pioneer equips the XDP-100R with support for up to 288GB storage (32GB internal + dual micro SD), and arms it with ESS Technology’s ES9018K2M SABRE DAC and SABRE 9601K amplifier. Furthermore, its internal design enables sufficient space to allow separation of the DAC/AMP and CPU circuit boards, so isolating audio circuitry from unwanted noise, and helping maximise performance levels.XDP-100R Winkel rechts_small

Commenting on the Pioneer product announcement, Bob Stuart, the innovator behind MQA technology said, “We are delighted to be on board with Pioneer and more excited than ever at the prospect of sharing MQA’s incredible audio performance with music fans everywhere.”
