Description

As the X50Pro is equipped with an ultra-low phase noise oscillator (CCHD-575 from Crystek Corporation), an extensively shielded SMPS with aluminium cover and a highly specificed PCB designed in-house, the X50Pro guarantees sublime sound quality with jitter and electrical noises minimised to negligible levels. Utilising a quad core ARM Cortex A9 processor and powerful XMOS microcontroller the X50Pro offers versatile software features, again developed in-house. This alongside a beautiful glass-sanded aluminium enclosure, crafted by precision CNC machining, presents the X50Pro as a world-class option for pure digital music playback and serving for the most demanding of audiophiles.

Custom designed software

Equipped with a quad core ARM Cortex A9 processor running at 1.0GHz, 64Bit/1000MIPS microcontroller and custom-designed software, the X50Pro is a reference pure digital streaming platform, ready to deliver outstanding sound and versatile functions.

High performance streaming

Vast experience, know-how and advance technology in digital circuit design with carefully selected components, such as the ultra-low phase noise oscillator, CCHD-575 from Crystek Corporation are applied perfectly in the X50Pro to produce class leading sound quality. To minimise electrical noise, the SMPS is perfectly shielded within a high quality aluminium casing.

The X50Pro can support up to Native DSD256 via its I²S digital output (on RJ45 & HDMI x 2) for audiophiles who want to use a highly specified DAC with I²S digital input. To increase compatibility with other devices, the X50Pro offers two(2) I²S HDMI out.

2-bay RAID storage system

The X50Pro features two drive bays which accept 3.5″/2.5″ SATA HDDs and SSDs. According to user preference, these can be set to one of three RAID system modes – mirror, (back-up) stripe (increased access speed) and big (up to 16TB total storage)

The entire X50Pro enclosure is precisely assembled from beautiful glass-sanded aluminium, fabricated by precision CNC machining.
