HI-RES ENTERTAINMENT IN THE PALM OF YOUR HANDFeel music the way the artist intended. Also watch movies, play games and access your favourite apps using the large touchscreen. The XDP-100R offers limitless entertainment at your fingertips with glorious high resolution audio.Industry first support for MQA (via free update). MQA is not simply Hi-Res, high bit rate or high sample rate audio. It is a completely different way of capturing, delivering and reproducing audio performances which preserve the magic of the original studio recording in a format that's small enough to stream or download.Built on Android OS, the possibilities to go beyond being just a music player' are endless. Access to Google Play enables streaming, gaming and all other apps to utilise the large 4.7" screen with glorious audio reproduction. Limitless entertainment is now in the palm of your hand.The capacitive touch screen incorporates a newly designed GUI that allows swiping vertically between regularly accessed playlists and equalizer settings at the flick of a finger. All physical buttons have been placed within easy access allowing for simple one handed operation. Home screen icons can be arranged and rearranged for a customised user experience.The audio circuitry utilises ESS technology's SABRE DAC ES9018K2M and SABRE 9601K AMP. The DAC/AMP board and the Android main board are separated within an isolated structure. This approach mimics that of using a separate amplifier and source component for maximum performance. The audio circuitry and switching power are distanced to keep noise at bay. The DAC/AMP has its own capacitors to provide a clean audio signal with its closed loop design.The player features integrated Wi-Fi and AptX Bluetooth for convenient audio streaming.Supported audio formats: DSD(DSF/DSDIFF), FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF, Ogg Vorbis/MP3, AAC, MQA(via free update)The XDP-100R is available in black or silver.

I quickly discovered it was down to EU volume cap, not Pioneer's fault and was addressed with firmware update.
So I updated but couldn't really tell the difference afterwards, so got ready to package back up again.
Just I was throwing the towel in I noticed a 'variable line out mode' in the settings that I hadn't noticed pre-update.
Flicked the switch and got a headphone warning and thought "this looks promising".
Sure enough it has done the trick - I had comfortably listened for a few hours at full blast (160) before the update + V Line setting on my Sennheiser HD25's. Now I would say that 125-130 gives the same output with another 30-35 to play with and can't really do full blast now.
I have owned a number of budget-mid end dacs/amps and a Sony A17 & ZX1 and I think it's safe to say this beats them all now it has been unleashed. Shame that it didn't come like this out of the box and I imagine a few were returned pre firmware update, but glad I stuck with it.
Sound is astonishing, truly incredible across both lossless files and including highest quality MP3s (320kbs, constant bit rate). I am moving up from an iBasso DX80 which I always thought was good and had also used Fiio, Cowon and many other high quality players. The sound reproduction here is genuinely surprising.
Make sure you play around with the settings for a while to shape it to your choice and do read the booklet, it makes a big difference. I'm happy to guide in review comments if anyone needs assistance getting the best sound. I'm not using any EQ settings, it really does not seem like it needs them but upscaling and other aspects I have turned on.
Anyone using Android already will find this easy to use. It's not a phone though, it's designed as music player so not as fast as a phone but importantly it does have 2GB of RAM making everything feel smooth in app loading whereas some Android players try to get by with 1GB, giving a glitchy, slower experience. The device can work with everything switched on (wifi, bluetooth etc) or turned off for a pure sound at best quality. That's appreciated and important also to preserve battery life. I suggest using wifi at home getting everything set up then turn it off when using it as a player to extend battery life. Charging the player is very quick and I carry a powerbank for phone and other devices with me, but I find turning off wifi when travelling makes a massive difference to the battery life.
Upon setting it up it navigated quickly and easily through the set up, upgraded the firmware and apps then was ready to use. Very simple and easy. I inserted two SanDisk 128gb MicroSD cards full of music set it to scan them (and enabled Autoscan for future) and within about ten minutes everything had loaded without any exceptions. All album sleeves present, all music tags perfectly loaded, no exceptions or drop outs (unlike iBasoo, Fiio, Cowon etc in the past and I've got clean tags to my music). The scanning also ran in the background so I did not have to wait an age to use the player.
I use variable line out and the volume is fine - certainly loud enough for me (using AKG N60NC headphone, Hifiman RE400s, Byerdnamic Byrons etc. Unless you use 2.5mm connecting balanced headphones do not be tempted to go up to the XDP-300R from the same company - there's literally no point. Everything else is the same but it uses the dual amp setting to drive balanced headphones. The forthcoming balanced ones from Pioneer do look good though. Balanced headphones do not use the standard 3.5mm headphone jack, they use 2.5mm so do not be tempted to get the 300R model (which is £200 more) unless you make the headphone transition too.
I took off the bumpers top and bottom and use a XDP-300 case for it, works perfectly.
Some people say this is bulky as a player but it's shorter than my Google Pixel phone, it's chunky but still small, especially once the bumpers are off.
The device does include a speaker built in which I did not expect and is loud enough for bedside radio listening, voice programmes etc. This is especially useful as BBC Radio player, Tune Up and other internet radio apps all work on the device.
Pioneer has just released the XDP-30R which looks a cut down version of the XDP-300R but we aware that has a much smaller screen to navigate with (it does have a phone control app but not all settings work on that I think) and importantly it does not have Bluetooth Apt-X which ruled it out for me.
I'll update the review with more experience over time, but like everyone else I kept checking various players - did I need the even more powerful XDP-300R or their parent company Onkyo's XP1 (answer, no), should I choose Astell & Kern, iBasso's DX200 or Fiio 5 ii, Opus etc instead (now glad I didn't). In the end I chose this and I'm delighted with the device. Your time in reading the booklet, checking the options and getting it right for you will repay the effort. I now have loads of streaming apps set-up and running on the player in addition to running off the cards - it's a great combination, works seamlessly and I'm therefore delighted.
This is a brilliant device with all the features I wanted - download and use music apps, bluetooth AptX for when I need to use that, dual wifi support not just 2.4ghz which gets increasingly congested as everyone uses it, ace sound quality, smoothness of use and so on. I believe you can buy this device with confidence.
It is an Android-powered (Lollypop 5.1.1) device so could be used for most of the purposes that your smartphone could perform by installing the relevant apps - several playing and streaming apps come pre-installed but are those pertinent to its intended use as a mid-high-end audio player. It includes Wi-Fi so can directly download any system updates, firmware or apps that may be required and also uses Bluetooth 4.0 to transmit its output to any Bluetooth speaker system or headphones should you wish. It needs a set of high-end headphones to get the best from it, as will any similar DAP, provided that a good impedance match is possible - there are no specific recommendations and you may need to try before you buy to find one that suits but you should consider spending about as much again or more to find one suitable. With a good choice, the output is warm-to-neutral with an excellent spatial image and an awareness of the instruments.
Two microSD slots are provided, currently supporting 200GB each, plus another 32Gb internal memory of which about 23GB is free to use after current system updates. You may wish to reserve the internal memory for future updates, additional apps etc and use the microSD slots for music storage. It is possible that a future firmware update may increase the slots' capacity limits, but 400GB+ should be enough for now and for some time into the future! DSD formats are supported but HUGE and may dramatically limit the numbers of tracks and albums possible.
The player can use on-screen play controls but has a physical and well-milled volume control on its left side. The right-hand side is fully occupied with physical play controls and its twin microSD slots. The design is slightly quirky due to the two plastic 'bumpers' but they are easily removed if desired; that on top is intended to protect the headphone plug from accidental damage when carried in a pocket and that below to protect the speaker grille and data lead connector - it has a single internal speaker used for monitoring and possibly when used as a video player but the output is not loud or great in quality. It offers a huge range of volume settings but the lower 25% will rarely provide a comfortable listening level; some recommend use of a high-end headphone amplifier for improved bass and treble and greater volume but need not be essential. Battery life is theoretically 16 hours but use of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and always having the screen live can reduce that by almost half; they can all be disabled when not required.
Media format compatability is one of the widest possible and includes DSD and MQA, MP3 and most of the common lossless formats (but excluding APE - those who have media in APE format may find dbPowerAmp a useful means to convert them to FLAC or several other formats) and including AIFF and ALAC which are often both overlooked. MQA offers increased audio range but with high compression and improved quality due to wider separation of instruments and voices once decoded. A number of streaming services are committed to MQA but it is not yet widely available. The player is also capable of up-scaling lower quality recordings such as MP3s to a higher standard in much the same way that many Blu-Ray players can up-scale a DVD to near-Blu-Ray quality; it isn't perfect but provides an audible improvement. The player had been much improved by an earlier firmware update that enabled MQA support and fixed a few minor problems, and there may yet be other updates to follow. Build quality is high and, internally, use of a carefully designed system of circuit boards separates audio from power components for lower noise and interference. A 0.9m long charge and data transfer cable is provided; the fitting is standard micro-USB and a longer version can be purchased if required.
Careful consideration was given to several alternatives including models from Fiio, Astell & Kerns, Sony and others including Cowon but bugginess within proprietary software, a tendency to freeze and other issues ruled out most, regardless of pricing. One or two models may offer a better listening experience, potentially greater listening levels or other advantages but various usability problems could not be ignored. Technical reviews found elsewhere helped with the final choice. This was purchased to replace a mostly faithful Cowon X7 which has seen considerable use over many years but has needed more than one reformat and reinstallation to correct system crashes (a known issue with most Cowon models and still unresolved) and intermittent jittery audio with some tracks that may have played perfectly days ago but not today. The X7 is considerably heavier than this due to its use of an internal hard drive which cannot last forever or be easily replaced when it fails; microSD cards can be easily replaced and upgraded.
One minor criticism is that there is not currently a case or sleeve that is made expressly for it. The XDAP-Link software (a download) is a means to transfer files to the player but it will only transfer tracks and not complete albums although it works reasonably well with that limitation. The alternative may be to use an SD-card adapter as is provided with some micro-SDs and transfer using a file browser.
