Experience digital music to the fullest with High-Resolution Audio. By capturing music at a higher rate than CD, increasing both audio samples per second and the bit-rate accuracy of each sample, High-Resolution Audio offers an uncompromised rendition of
Lose nothing in translation
The DMP-Z1 supports files up to DSD native 11.2 MHz and PCM playback up to 384 kHz/32-bit, which means all the authentic detail of the original recording is retained.
4.4-mm balanced connection and 3.5-mm headphone jack engineered with KIMBER KABLE®
Clear stereo separation and soundstaging is delivered by a 4.4 mm balanced headphone jack, which is compatible with a broad range of premium headphones. Internal wiring for both the 4.4-mm and standard, unbalanced, 3.5-mm jacks use a thick KIMBER KABLE(R)
High-quality analog amplifier
By incorporating an audiophile-grade, high-power headphone amplifier, the DMP-Z1 realizes 1,500 mW (16 ) to drive even the most demanding headphones.
Isolated circuit board reduces noise
To keep sound transparent and minimize distortion, the analog board is separated from the digital board on the H-shaped chassis. This cuts noise and realizes solid ground.
Premium, audio-grade lead-free solder containing gold
The all-important headphone outputs and other outputs of the DMP-Z1 feature newly developed lead-free solder with the addition of gold to enhance the signal flow. The exceptional conductivity of gold ensures the absolute minimum signal loss possible, for
Give all PCM music the DSD treatment with the DSD Remastering Engine
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) audio is resampled into a 5.6 MHz DSD (Direct Stream Digital) ultra-high-frequency 1-bit audio stream. The single-bit stream delivered to the DAC has a character far closer to that of analogue - so your music is delivered exact
Give every track the sound of vinyl with Vinyl Processor
Get lost again in the richness of the melodies and dynamics of your favourite albums by giving back the character of vinyl to your digital tracks. Subtle reproduction of the low-frequency resonance, tone-arm resistance and surface noise deliver an authent
New DSEE HX analyzes song type by AI
Audio upscaling is improved even further by our new DSEE HX processor which intelligently recognizes instrumentation and musical genres. Realism and liveliness of different instruments, including the human voice, are inherently characterized by high-frequ
USB DAC Function for higher-quality music
When connected using the supplied USB cable, the DMP-Z1 replaces your computer's regular sound processing with its own highly-tuned hardware for premium sound quality.
Battery life for music playback
Up to approximately 10 hours of playback for non high-resolution and approximately 9 hours of playback for high-resolution.
What's in the box
It comes with a USB Type-C cable, AC adapter, AC power cord, carrying case and cleaning cloth.
The carry case is both stylish and sturdy, with soft padding to keep the unit firmly in place when you're on the move.
Fine Sound Resistor
The surface mounted Fine Sound Resistor ensures even, effective distribution of power to the circuit components, for consistent sound quality.
The DMP-Z1 supports MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) files for another way to enjoy music.

|Battery Life - Continuous Playback Music Notes||The values shown in this topic represent the approximate battery life when content is played continuously using the default settings. Even if the player is turned off for an extended period, a small amount of battery power is still consumed. Battery life may vary depending on the volume setting, conditions of use and ambient temperature. The battery is consumed considerably when the screen is on. The battery life may be shortened by about 10% when some of the sound quality settings are active. A Bluetooth connection will shorten the battery life by up to 45% depending on the following conditions. Format of the content. Settings of the connected device.|
