The renowned Chinese company xDuoo continues to deliver on its promise by shipping the new xDuoo X20 HiFi player. The novelty is not a cheap one – the segment is rather an average one, as they ask $245 for it. Perhaps in due course it will become cheaper, but I doubt that on much, as the stuffing is impressive.
The base element of xDuoo X20 is a chic dedicated DAC ESS9010Q2M. This is not a toy anymore, but a really serious chip. In pair to it the not less impressing operational amplifier OPA1612 is appointed not less. Since there is no doubt in the realization of the potential of the above elements, yet xDuoo is not boys, but serious specialists in HiFi sound, the novelty is one of the most interesting models of 2018. I’m ready to bet that it will become megapopular.
Among the rest we would like to mention the metal case, high resolution up to 32bit/384KHz, reproduction of all popular formats, linear and balanced outputs, large color screen, modern menu, 2400mAh battery capacity, Bluetooth and much more.
Personally, I consider the xDuoo X20 to be a very promising player and put it on my wish list. And on one of the first positions.
