December 02, 2021

DAP(Digital audio player)
Digital audio players(DAP) are the corollary of MP3 players; they sacrifice looks for functionality, resulting in bulky devices that are a pain to carry around.

Hidizs AP80 lossless music player shatters this stereotype. It’s compact, vibrant, with a rounded contour adored by music lovers worldwide. Our flagship AP80 Pro Aluminum Alloy (standard) was followed, in particular, by three special editions: stainless steel, red copper and titanium alloy (limited editions, immediately sold out).  

Aesthetic Evolution 

Long before “full-screen" displays became the norm in mobile phones, the AP80 series portable player(DAP) had been on this minimalist wave. The length of its body is smaller than a credit card, fitted in the front with a Samsung 2.45'' IPS 480*360 (HVGA) high-definition display screen that’s smooth to the touch. With an elegant double-sided glass and an integrated diamond cut that reflects a spectrum of dazzling colors on the sides, the unique and ingenious design aesthetics of Hidizs unmistakably stands out above the fray. Due to popular demand, Hidizs AP80 Pro-X digital audio player comes in black, gray, and blue. 


Chip Upgrade 

In keeping with the essence of the classics, the AP80 Pro-X portable Hi-Res music player has kept AP80 Pro's signature HBC3000 chip FPGA + dual DAC. The HBC3000 FPGA provides the high-precision master clock and native DSD 64/128/256, in combination with the two newly released ES9219C DAC chips, by ESS Technology, Inc, for a balanced output which, in turn, relies on its +130dB SNR, +121dB DNR, and -114dB THD to ensure the rendition of high-fidelity audio quality. This pint-sized device is able to support the incredibly DSD256, PCM 32Bit/384kHz, and MQA 8X unfolding.

HiBy Link

Not to mention that the AP80 Pro-X Hi-Fi music player also has 70MW+70MW @ 32ω on SE(single ended) output, 190MW+190MW @ 32ω on Balanced output, enough to drive high impedance headphones. With 40 days of deep standby, 8-11 hours for single ended, and 6-8 hours for balanced.

Rich Connectivity 

Despite its tiny dimensions, the AP80 Pro-X high-resolution portable music player still integrates the traditional 3.5mm stereo interface and the 2.5mm balanced interface. Plus, it also supports wireless lossless connection such as two-way USB DAC and Bluetooth 4.2, and is compatible with high-quality lossless transmission protocols such as AAC, CSR apt-X, Sony LDAC, HiBy UAT, Apple Lossless, FLAC, WAV, ALAC, APE, DSSIFF, SBC, etc., and possesses Hi-Res Audio and Hi-Res Audio Wireless dual-certifications.
