IBasso DX180: A Masterpiece of Audio Engineering with unparalleled DAC Performance. At the core of the DX180 lies the flagship CS43131 DAC array from Cirrus Logic. Renowned for its dynamic range of 130dB and ultra-low THD+N of -115dB, this DAC chip sets the standard for high-fidelity audio. The DX180 elevates this with an advanced DAC matrix technology, employing four CS43131 chips. This configuration not only matches but exceeds the theoretical limits of the CS43131, achieving an astonishing AP-measured THD+N of -121dB. This remarkable performance underscores the DX180's superior design and technology, setting it apart from competitors.

FPGA-MASTER 2.0: Precision and Clarity Redefined

Years of dedicated algorithm development have culminated in the FPGA-Master 2.0, the advanced audio system controller in the DX180. This controller directly sources audio data from the SoC, ensuring impeccable signal reproduction and integrity. Utilizing two NDK femtosecond oscillators, the FPGA-Master 2.0 synchronizes and generates all audio clocks, achieving a fully synchronized single clock source. With picosecond-level precision, it adjusts the DAC clock and data, optimizing the FIR filter for an enhanced listening experience.

Leading Algorithm for Superior FIR Output

The FPGA-Master 2.0 algorithm maximizes the capabilities of the four CS43131 DAC chipsets, transforming them into super performers. This advanced algorithm significantly enhances the normal performance of the CS43131, ensuring exceptional audio quality.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC: Smooth and Efficient Operation

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, the DX180 features an 8-core architecture and advanced 11nm process, which reduces heat generation and enhances operational stability. With the ability to expand storage by up to 2TB via Micro SD card, the DX180 effortlessly accommodates extensive music libraries, ensuring you never run out of space for your favorite tunes.

Impeccable Audio Measurements: Leading the Market

The IBasso DX180 Digital Audio Player surpasses the theoretical limits of the CS43131 chipset, establishing itself as a leader in its price range. Its true audio measurements push the boundaries of what is possible, delivering an unparalleled listening experience.

Blackest Background Possible: Pure, Uninterrupted Sound

The DX180 boasts an impressively low noise floor of just 0.79uV. Even at maximum volume with high gain, the balanced port noise floor remains at a mere 1.1μV. This significantly low noise floor ensures a distinct quietness, providing an exceptionally vibrant music playback experience.

Android 13: Ultimate Convenience and Freedom

Equipped with Android 13, the DX180 offers the freedom to install streaming apps and enjoy the convenience of a modern operating system. Whether using Mango Player or third-party streaming apps, the DX180 bypasses SRC at the system level, ensuring Hi-Res music playback with the "Non-SRC" feature.

Fast Charging and Long Battery Life: Music Without Interruptions

The DX180 supports PD3.0 and QC3.0 fast charging, reaching 83% charge in just 60 minutes and a full charge in 84 minutes. With an improved power management system, it offers up to 15.5 hours of playback for balanced phone out usage and an astonishing 30 hours for Line Out playtime, ensuring your music never has to stop. Immerse yourself in the pinnacle of high-fidelity audio with the DX180. With its groundbreaking DAC performance, advanced FPGA-Master 2.0 technology, powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, and the convenience of Android 13, the DX180 is designed to provide an unparalleled listening experience. Enjoy your music like never before, with pure, uninterrupted sound and the freedom to play anything, anytime.
