The X50Pro is a reference-class digital source for audiophiles looking to manage any size of hi-res digital music collection, connecting conveniently to external DACs to reproduce flawless and faithful digital audio transmission. The X50Pro is a multi-purpose music server which functions as a media player, CD ripper, network streamer, music recorder and much more for music lovers.
As the X50Pro is equipped with an ultra-low phase noise oscillator (CCHD-575 from Crystek Corporation), an extensively shielded SMPS with aluminium cover and a highly specified PCB designed in-house, the X50Pro guarantees sublime sound quality with jitter and electrical noises minimised to negligible levels.
Utilising a quad core ARM Cortex A9 processor and powerful XMOS micro controller the X50Pro offers versatile software features, again developed in-house. This alongside a beautiful glass-sanded aluminium enclosure, crafted by precision CNC machining, presents the X50Pro as a world-class option for pure digital music playback and serving for the most demanding of audiophiles.
Custom designed software
Equipped with a quad core ARM Cortex A9 processor running at 1.0GHz, 64Bit/1000MIPS micro controller and custom-designed software, the X50Pro is a reference pure digital streaming platform, ready to deliver outstanding sound and versatile functions.
High performance streaming
Vast experience, know-how and advance technology in digital circuit design with carefully selected components, such as the ultra-low phase noise oscillator, CCHD-575 from Crystek Corporation are applied perfectly in the X50Pro to produce class leading sound quality. To minimise electrical noise, the SMPS is perfectly shielded within a high quality aluminium casing.
XMOS 8-core microcontroller
The X50Pro can support up to Native DSD256 via its I²S digital output (on RJ45 & HDMI x 2) for audiophiles who want to use a highly specified DAC with I²S digital input. To increase compatibility with other devices, the X50Pro offers two(2) I²S HDMI out.
2-bay RAID storage system
The X50Pro features two drive bays which accept 3.5"/2.5" SATA HDDs and SSDs. According to user preference, these can be set to one of three RAID system modes - mirror, (back-up) stripe (increased access speed) and big (up to 16TB total storage)
The entire X50Pro enclosure is precisely assembled from beautiful glass-sanded aluminium, fabricated by precision CNC machining.
The X50 Pro also supports storage of up to 8TB if you want to rip your CD collection. Please contact us for more details.
