XAV-9000ES | Mobile ES™ 6.75‘’ (17.1cm) High-Resolution Digital Media Receiver



Premium quality audio and customisation

Engineered for ultimate
listening pleasure

Experience the same calibre of sound usually reserved for
high-end home audio products, thanks to the ESS DAC chip – a premium converter that provides optimum quality, from all your digital music files. With high-performance 32-bit processing and eliminated timing jitter, this D/A converter delivers an unprecedented dynamic range and low harmonic distortion.

Choices for optimum performance

Carefully selected components ensure superb sound quality. The dedicated choke coil features powerful bass while filtering unwanted frequencies, for controlled and dynamic audio reproduction. Audiophile-grade capacitors deliver effortless power for clear and tight bass, while multi-layer polymer capacitors help ensure low overall harmonic distortion and natural sound character.

Built-in 4-channel Class A/B Amp for High-Resolution Audio

Giving unmatched audio quality to the built-in amplifier, a dedicated power circuit is designed for each of the left and right channels, while an overall amplifier block includes updated circuit configurations, patterns, and choices of components, minimising interference. Furthermore, the volume control circuit utilises a select audio IC with less distortion and noise. The results are smooth highs, tight bass, wide dynamic range, and a more accurate soundstage.

Anti-resonance dual-layer chassis

The dual-layer design of the chassis separates analogue and digital circuitry, preventing electromagnetic interference for uncompromised sound quality.

High-resolution wireless
LDAC audio

Enjoy the convenience of Bluetooth® wireless audio and exceptional sound quality, thanks to LDAC. Connect compatible devices to stream audio at 96 kHz / 24-bit sampling with data transmission rates up to 3x higher (990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth.

High-grade 192 kHz / 24‑bit DSP

The 192 kHz / 24‑bit DSP offers pristine sound processing and time alignment, 14-band equaliser, and 8-band parametric equaliser. Together with the updated 3-zone crossover, which enables bi-amp front 2-way speaker drive settings, you can dial in the perfect combination of front, rear and subwoofers.

6-channel time alignment

You can adjust the stereo balance by correcting the arrival time of the sound according to where you sit in the vehicle. Adjust the distance from each speaker to the listening position on-screen in remarkable 0.1 inch or 1 cm increments to realise an
ideal soundstage.

14-band EQ

A 14-band EQ lets you adjust the overall sound to your music or taste, allowing you to manually cut and boost 14 different frequencies for all the speaker and subwoofer outputs at the
same time.

8-band parametric EQ

To optimise performance across different speaker configurations, you can use 8-band parametric EQ for each of the 6 channels independently, by cutting and boosting 8 custom frequencies for each speaker and subwoofer output. You can also adjust the Q-factor (adjustment width) for each of the 8 select frequencies.

Bi-amp front 2-way speaker
drive settings

Designed for front component speaker configurations, this setting lets you apply independent crossover, PEQ and even
time-alignment settings to individual drivers in bi-amp front speakers. Now you can customise sound for each component speaker using the same detailed control normally reserved for front and rear speaker groups.
