Hidizs DH1000: World's First Truly Dual Balanced Amplifier

HK$ 574,147

350

Hidizs DH1000 is designed for music enthusiasts. The dual DACs are embedded in a balanced op-amp circuit to maximize the stereo separation. With its dual-channel headphone amplifiers, the stereo flows across both the left and right side of your headphones to deliver world-class performance and a sense of balance to ensuring your music will come through as pure as it can ever be.

You spend an average of 3-5 hours per day listening to music on mobile devices or laptops. Unfortunately, the quality of the built-in DAC and headphone amp in your mobile devices or laptop are not good enough to get the full experience of your music. With the Hidizs DH1000, you could play High-Resolution Audio up to 24-Bit/192KHz (6.5x more data transmitted than CD), which has higher sampling rates than the standards used in CDs. You can enjoy music like never before.

Most of the other amplifiers use only one DAC for both the left and right channels. Hidizs DH1000 uses two top-level ES9018K2M DACs for each channel to make sure the signals will not interference with each other. Not only this, but we also designed two LPF and OPA modules (both integrated into the ES9601K AMPs) for each of the left and right channels to ensures the best channel separation (120dB for both 2.5mm and 3.5mm headphone jacks) and SRN (122dB). This means that DH1000 can provide you a clearer and purer sound than any other amplifiers.

Hidizs DH-1000 is perfectly compatible with iPhone, Android phones, iPad, PC, MAC and most DAPs. It can turn your all devices into a luxury stereo system.

A carefully optimized circuit with a high-standard PCB immersion gold finish, DH100 can overcome interfering signals between different modules. With high performance (122 dB SNR) analogue output, it allows you to hear every drumbeat and breath.

Hidizs DH1000 is designed from the perception of a conductor, it's known as the soul of auditory perception in a concert. With a frequency response of 0Hz ~ 50 KHz and 120dB stereo separation, Hidizs DH1000 can faithfully deliver every detail of the hi-res audio by accurately separating the bands of high, mid and low. It will make you feel like you’re in the middle of a concert; right in front your favorite singer, band or orchestra.

Quartz crystal resonators whereof three for signal transmission and one for measurement; equipped with the high-precision, ultra-low noise clock source which flawlessly controls the delay time and equates to a faithful reproduction of the original sound. Experience sound like never before.

Found out your mobile devices or laptop can’t drive your expensive headphone sets? The Hidizs DH1000 provides enough power to drive headphones from 8 to 600Ω impedance through both 2.5/3.5mm headphone jacks. Power enough to drive any high-impedance headphones on the market. This means you can finally take your power-hungry studio cans on-the-go and enjoy its full potential without having to carry a big and heavy amplifier.

DH1000 has two separate data and charge USB ports. This independent design allows users to charge DH1000 on the go from a portable power bank, while continuing to enjoy DH1000 in action at the same time

CNC aluminium alloy body with comfort grip-ergonomic design, 2.5D sided tempered glass, it’s as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional.

HIBY OS supports an array of mobile phones, plus the asynchronous transfer channels of mobile phone and DH1000; with HiBy player, your phone can stream most high resolution format including APE, FLAC, WAV, MP3, DSD.

With unbeatable decoding capabilities, DH1000 supports Flac, APE, WAV, ALAC, APPLE LOSSLESS, DSF, DSDIFF and other Hi-Res audio files including PCM 24-Bit/192kHz, native DSD64/128, and more. The cross-platform functionality of DH 1000 allows you to use it as a decoder on Android, iPhone, PC, MAC, iPad and other devices. It can instantly upgrade your existing music to high-resolution sound quality.

Comparative Measurements  

To understand the sound quality difference between DH1000 and smartphone, it is useful to compare the objective performance between DH1000 and the iPhone 7 directly. We used professional equipment Audio Precision APX515 to measure all of the acoustic data below.

 Channel Separation

For the audio system, lower crosstalk brings better stereo image and channel separation. DH1000's channel separation data is almost twice lower as much as the iPhone 7 which means it can provide much clearer sound that’s more crisp.

Frequency Response

The DH1000 can reach beyond the Hi-Res standard 40kHz, while the iPhone 7 can only reach the 20kHz, this means DH1000 contains much more detail of the original track.

 SRN

The signal-to-noise ratio is defined as the ratio of the power of a signal (meaningful information) and the power of background noise (unwanted signal). The DH1000 has a higher SRN than the iPhone 7, which means that DH1000 can provide a purer sound. Some high-end supra-aural headphones require the source to have a certain SRN to be able to maximize the headphone’s capabilities.

Level Output

DH1000's level output is eight times stronger than the iPhone 7. It means DH1000 has much bigger power to drive headphones.

Hidizs was founded early in 2009, when pocket HiFi had just emerged. At that time, those devices were either very pricey or lacking in quality. In order to produce a superior, and affordable pocket HiFi audio device, a group of technicians with experience in HiFi audio R&D teamed up to create the Hidizs brand. In early 2010, the Hidizs team started researching the global HiFi audio market; in Oct 2012, the Hidizs R&D team became official. In Jan 2014, Hidizs’ first pocket HiFi audio player AP100 was officially launch at CES, Las Vegas. In August 2017, we launched our first android Hi-Fi music player AP200 on Kickstarter which had been supported by 943 backers and reached $280000 USD fund. And we have successfully fulfilled all the orders.

Risks and challenges

We've already sourced our suppliers and parts and have made a trial manufacturing run. Once we start mass production (after the campaign), we'll spend some time in the factory to avoid delays. We believe that working alongside the factory will minimize the risk of a possible delay.
