DMP-Z1 Digital Music Player Signature Series
One Signature Sound
Elevating the high-resolution sound experience from one you listen to, to one you can feel.
Every component of the DMP-Z1 has been meticulously crafted to deliver power, fidelity and purity of sound.
Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By capturing and reproducing digital audio at a higher rate than CD (24-bit/192kHz and beyond), High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording.
The DMP-Z1 supports files up to DSD native 11.2 MHz and PCM playback up to 384 kHz/32-bit, which means all the authentic detail of the original recording is retained.
Clear stereo separation and soundstaging is delivered by a 4.4-mm balanced headphone jack compatible with a broad range of premium headphones. Internal wiring for both the 4.4-mm and standard, unbalanced, 3.5-mm jacks use thick KIMBER KABLE® for signal integrity.
Five battery cells drive both digital and analog amplification circuits independently for enhanced dynamics and reduced internal electromagnetic interference. By isolating the power delivery from conventional AC power supplies, you enjoy both a more open treble response and tighter bass delivery without the harshness transmitted through AC line noise.
To keep sound transparent and minimize distortion, the analog board is separated from the digital board on the H-shaped chassis. This cuts noise and realizes solid ground.

To ensure minimal resonance and vibration are transmitted between the isolated boards, all circuit boards of the DMP-Z1 are mounted on a solid, frame-based chassis. This lessens external electrical or seismic interference so each circuit can achieve optimal performance. The chassis is made using a milling and blasting process, and is finished with a coating of Almite.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) audio is resampled into a 5.6 MHz DSD (Direct Stream Digital) ultra-high-frequency 1-bit audio stream. The single-bit stream delivered to the DAC has a character far closer to that of analog — so your music is delivered exactly as the artist intended.
Get lost again in the richness of the melodies and dynamics of your favorite albums by giving vinyl character back to your digital tracks. Subtle reproduction of the low-frequency tone-arm resonance, surface and scratch noise, and resonance on the vinyl deliver an authentic listening experience.
Audio upscaling is improved even further by our new DSEE HXTM processor which intelligently recognizes instruments, voices and musical genres. By identifying these and the relative energy of the audio, it can accurately rebuild audio lost during digital compression, for a full fidelity experience, even with compressed formats.
For added clarity the LCD panel is made from polished glass — coupled with aluminum panels and a gold-plated volume control, the DMP-Z1 shines sleekly like a glass mirror.
When connected using the supplied USB cable, the DMP-Z1 replaces your computer's regular sound processing with its own highly-tuned hardware for premium sound quality.
Stream music through the DMP-Z1 via BLUETOOTH® connection and a smartphone connection to give all your music a DMP-Z1 boost. Favorite tracks will benefit from digital-to-analog audio conversion and DSEE HXTM upscaling, as well as the Vinyl Processor and Equalizer, etc.
It comes with a USB Type-CTM cable, AC adapter, AC power cord, carrying case and cleaning cloth.
Stylish and sturdy, the carrying case has soft padding to keep the unit firmly in place when you're on the move.
Settle for nothing less than immersive excellence with the full range of Signature Series products. Designed for ultimate sound quality, they transcend audio conventions to elevate every note.
