Whether you’re dipping a toe into Hi-Res Audio, or a veteran user, expect stunning playback of most music formats. The XDP-30R supports MP3, DSD 5.6 MHz decoding; plays FLAC, WAV, ALAC, AAC, and AIFF at up to 192 kHz/32-bit; and is compatible with MQA following a future firmware update. Selectable Hi-bit Upsampling converts lower-resolution files to 192 kHz/32-bit for a near-native Hi-Res Audio experience. Lossless audio is expressed fluently, and the player is sympathetic to compressed audio. Add TIDAL and TuneIn (other services to follow), and your musical horizons expand even further.
Standard and Balanced Output Jacks
3.5 mm headphone jack for standard headphone use as well as a 2.5 mm headphone jack, to support balanced headphones. The XDP-30R has 2 different balanced modes; Balanced (BTL) for improved stereo separation and increased power for more demanding headphones and Active Control Ground (ACG) for improved channel separation and a clean, detailed, noise free audio performance.
Different mixes, different masters, different styles... with the XDP-30R, you can shape a response that satisfies without compromising fidelity. Three digital filters, Lock Range Adjust, and a 10-band EQ with customizable presets are included. Together with selectable gain function, you can drive your headphones to their max performance.
Control the XDP-30R with your smartphone. The free Pioneer DuoRemote app uses Bluetooth to connect your smartphone to the XDP-30R, limiting the need to juggle between devices. Keep the DAP in your bag or pocket and use your phone to control volume and perform playback operations such as play/pause, skip, scan, shuffle, and repeat. The app is also great for entering Wi-Fi passwords or making playlists using a smart keyboard that supports multiple languages via the XDP-30R’s GUI.
Built-in 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi lets you stream uninterrupted, with fewer dropouts and less glitches. On the output side, Bluetooth is an easy way to beam your collection to a car stereo or hi-fi system. Both headphone jacks serve as line outputs, one for unbalanced connections, one balanced for compatible gear.
