The DX170 utilizes the FPGA-Master technology developed by iBasso. The FPGA-Master, as the audio system controller, directly requests audio data from the SoC, and plays a major role in signal reproduction and maintaining signal integrity. It synchronizes and generates all audio clocks at the same time utilizing two NDK femtosecond oscillators to achieve a fully synchronized single clock source. The FPGA and NDK oscillators also reduce jitter to an extremely low level, building a clean digital audio signal.
Dual Cirrus Logic flagship DAC chips, CS43131 are utilized. The chip dynamic range is 130dB and a THD+N -115dB, as established by CS. With an exclusive OPAMP+BUF amplification after the CS43131, the DX170 brings forth the strengths of CS43131.
Regardless of if you're using the 3.5mm single-ended or 4.4mm balanced output, with diligent tuning and adjustment, the DX170 not only retains the transparency and exquisiteness of CS43131, but also enhances the musicality and realism of the music.
With the advanced process technology of the RK3566, the system response is significantly improved. The AnTuTu score now reaches 100,000, far exceeding the Qualcomm 430/425 platform commonly used by players of the same price range. The user experience is greatly improved and enhanced.
