A 1TB hard disc, has space for all your music, letting you hear it all as it was meant to be heard.

Format-friendly for all your music files

The HAP-Z1ES supports High-Resolution Audio formats such as DSD, FLAC, WAV and ALAC, as well as compressed formats like MP3, AAC, ATRAC and WMA, restoring their quality closer to that of the original.

2Hz-80kHz frequency range
Detailed sound across the whole frequency range

A wide frequency range of 2Hz-80kHz a well-rounded sound, capable of reproducing the nuances of a live performance.

Analogue to digital sound at a high sample rate

Analogue to digital sound at a high sample rate

For exceptional accuracy and detail, High-Resolution Audio converts analogue to digital at 24bit/96Hz - much higher than CDS, and analogue FIR filters operate at the frequency of DSD.

High-Resolution Audio
Bring compressed files to a new level

The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) upscales your compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC and WMA) close to CD quality. By restoring the high-range sound lost in the compression process, DSEE produces your digital music files in rich, natural sound, closer to the quality of the original recording.

How the DSD Re-mastering Engine works

The DSD Re-mastering Engine resamples your compressed music files to DSD – a High-Resolution format with a 1-bit audio stream for efficient digital to analog conversion. Audio is reproduced closer to the quality of the original recording, with restored detail and tone previously lost in the compression process.
