Music Support

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.

Premium Audio Build

Among the best-performing digital-to-analog converters available, the SABRE ES9018C2M is deployed in twin configuration with twin SABRE ESS9601K amplifiers. Served by dedicated capacitors, each channel is symmetrical to equalize signal paths. The design leads to transparent reproduction and yields extraordinary levels of detail on a spacious soundstage. Be drawn into the music; sense each instrument around you in three dimensional space.

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.

Two Clocks for Greater Precision

Clocking mechanisms synchronize the timing of data flowing between devices. The better the clock, the better the sound. The XDP-30R has two clocks; one detects 44.1 kHz signals, scaling to 88.2 kHz/176.4 kHz, and the second handles 48 kHz signals and upsamples to a maximum 192 kHz. Detection is automatic. The result is pure, jitter-free sound.

Personalized Audio Optimization

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.

Strong, Compact, and Lightweight

Fitting snug in the palm of your hand, the XDP-30R also slips comfortably into your jeans pocket without weighing you down. Crafted from aluminum with a handsome brushed finish, it feels like a high-end product. Details such as gold-plated inputs, scratch-resistant glass, and precision external controls add to a sense of sophistication.

Control with DuoRemote App

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.

Note: Mobile devices require Bluetooth low energy (LE) support. Please check App Store or Google Play™ for device and OS requirements.

Simple Interface, Easy Navigation

2.5” Touchscreen with simple to use GUI, allows quick access all your favorite music.

Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, and Two Line Outputs

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.
