Considerably smaller than its first digital audio player, the new DP-S1 follow-up model from Onkyo is milled from a solid block of black aluminium and boasts 16GB of built-in memory, which can be expanded to 416GB thanks to its twin MicroSD card slots. Under the hood there are dual ES9018C2M ESS SABRE DAC chipsets, ensuring that the player can support DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz, FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF (up to a maximum of 32-bit/192kHz), AAC and MP3. Meanwhile, a scheduled firmware update will add MQA support.
Socketry options include a 2.5mm balanced headphone/line jack as well as a standard 3.5mm unbalanced output, while wireless connectivity comes in the shape of wi-fi and Bluetooth for streaming. The DP-S1 is available to buy now for £400 and you can find out more about it here.
