Although smartphones are currently capable of playing music satisfactorily, many devices dedicated to sound reproduction are specially designed to ensure superior audio fidelity, especially for high-resolution formats, and these devices are a recommended option for anyone looking for the best listening experience. The Xduoo X20 is one of these devices, which recently launched on the market offers a wealth of features and functions ideal for enjoying greater audio fidelity without spending a fortune to achieve it.
Today we tell you the most relevant features of this device recently released, which has dual channel Bluetooth, dual DAC internal DAC or analogue sound digitizer, support for PCM 32bit/384, DSD256 formats and promises to provide the best sound experience in the market for a low price.
On the other hand, if you are looking for something simpler and more basic, we recommend that you take a look at the Ruizu X02 mp3 player, which is capable of playing the most popular standard formats and to which we have already dedicated an article before.
The Xduoo X20 has a compact design whose dimensions of 11.20 x 5.50 x 1.70 cm and light weight of 150 grams make it ideal to carry in your pocket everywhere. It is made from a sturdy, CNC-cut aluminium casing that gives it a solid appearance and provides a textured texture with good grip.
The cover frames a 2.4-inch color screen that occupies nearly 40% of the front of the device and is not touch-proof and has a manageable interface from the buttons on the right side. This button configuration may be uncomfortable for some users, but it allows the device to have a clean look on the front that is quite pleasing to the eye.
In addition, the device has a micro SD card slot for storing hundreds of songs in high-resolution formats, as well as a 2400mAh battery that will provide an 8-hour autonomy to ensure hours of playback.
Inside it has a professional ESS9018 K2M DAC chip used to make the audio signal reproduced highly reduceable and high resolution. Similarly, the soundstage is quite wide, allowing you to enjoy an extraordinary experience thanks to the sound settings that allow you to feel the music with the quality with which it was originally recorded.
Similarly, it features an ultra-low phase dual crystal crystal noise oscillator that automatically configures itself with the speed of the source clock, and allows you to reduce distortion that might occur when syncing the audio, so the sound will be more precise and more enjoyable to the ear.
Another really attractive feature of the Xduoo X20 is the ability to play music up to 32-bit, in high-resolution formats such as the traditional PCM or DSD with support for sampling rates up to 384kHz. Bearing in mind that the sound of a standard CD is 16-bit with a sampling rate of 44 kHz, this is a quality well above what an average user would be accustomed to. In addition, you won’t have any problems with other popular formats such as APE, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, ALAC, AAC, MP3, OGG and WMA, among others.
On the other hand, the balanced output connector has a 4-way LPF circuit and a 6-way amplifier circuit that can handle output power of up to 140MA, so it is powerful enough to achieve a wider, more detailed, precise and delicate sound no matter what kind of headphones are being used, although of course, the sound will vary according to the quality of the headphones, but in any case the quality of sound transmitted through the headphones will vary according to the quality of the headphones, but in any case the quality of sound transmitted.
For wireless connectivity, the Xduoo X20 is equipped with Bluetooth 4.1 bidirectional transmission, compatible with the latest Apt-X protocol. It can be used connected to a Bluetooth headset or car speakers, and can also be used as a Bluetooth DAC for transmitting tracks from a smartphone, allowing you to get sound with the least possible loss of quality.
In addition, the device allows the user to control it directly from the smartphone via the Android and iOS-compatible Hiby Link application to avoid the hassle of taking the player out of the pocket all the time. So you only need the smartphone to perform actions such as adjusting the volume, exploring songs, playing, pausing, moving forward and accessing many options that can be made from the application.
