The Way The Artists Truly Intended

Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher than CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you.

Get the High-Resolution Audio experience

Imagine hearing your favorite tracks in unmatched clarity and richness. The HAP-Z1ES HDD Audio Player is the perfect addition to your Hi-Fi setup, with a Direct Stream Digital (DSD) Re-mastering Engine that elevates all your music. A 1 TB 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.

Detailed sound across the whole frequency range

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

Analog to digital sound at a high sample rate

Analog to digital sound at a high sample rate. For exceptional accuracy and detail, High-Resolution Audio converts analog to digital at 24 bit / 96 Hz — much higher than CDS, and analog FIR filters operate at the frequency of DSD.

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 during compression, 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.

Built for High-Resolution Audio

Designed for crisp audio with minimal distortion. Separate high capacity transformers keep power flow to digital and analog circuitry independent, reducing cross-talk and distortion between channels.

A sound internal structure

A frame and beam chassis design limits movement and vibration.

Off-center, ribbed isolation feet

Isolated feet disperse vibrations from the player's environment.

Shock-mounted components

The cooling fan and hard disc are mounted to reduce vibration.
