New York, NY, June 24, 2015 – At CE Week 2015 High Resolution Technologies (HRT) is demonstrating how everyone can hear better sound from headphones by using the company’s nano series dSp and i-dSp digital Sound processors, two accessories that provide significantly improved headphone sound quality for smartphones, tablets, and portable devices.
The HRT dSp (SRP: $69.99) works with Android and other devices and the i-dSp (SRP: $69.99) works with Lightning connector-equipped Apple products including iPhone 5 and 6, iPod touch and current iPad models. Both ultra-compact accessories incorporate proprietary digital Sound processing and a high-performance headphone amplifier.
The dSp and i-dSp can be experienced at CE Week 2015 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th St., New York, NY at Booth 139 (June 24 – 25, 2015). Thanks to a special arrangement with Tidal and high-end headphones from Audio-Technica, show attendees can hear music from headphones and mobile devices with improved resolution, spatiality and dynamics, and heightened realism.
“With the dSp and i-dSp you’ll now be able to enjoy streaming music, high-resolution audio and most any other format with significantly improved sound quality, from accessories that are attractively priced and couldn’t be simpler to use,” said Mike Hobson, Chief Executive Officer at HRT.
“There’s been a lot of talk and even controversy about streaming audio lately but maybe not enough focus on how good its sound quality can be, and the musical enjoyment streaming audio and other sources and can provide from portable listening. That’s what HRT is here to demonstrate,” Hobson noted.
The HRT dSp and i-dSp are compatible with all audio formats supported by portable devices running Android, Windows, Apple iOS and OSX, thanks to their UAC (USB Audio Class) interface. The i-dSp must be used with the Apple Lightning-to-USB Camera Adapter (not supplied) to connect to an Apple Lightning device.
The dSp will also operate with compatible Apple iOS 6 (and newer) devices with a 30-pin connector when used with the 30-pin to USB-A adapter from the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit.
The dSp and i-dSp require extremely low power consumption and offer extended playing times and plug-and-play connectivity. Both models support all audio formats including MP3, AAC, FLAC, PCM, Apple and Windows lossless and all streaming audio and video formats. Both are firmware-upgradeable to accommodate future updates.
Ideal for use with a wide range of headphones (they won’t magically transform poor-quality headphones into good-sounding ones), the dSp and i-dSp draw from HRT’s pioneering R & D in the USB audio accessories category and decades of involvement in high-end audio. Both models incorporate high-performance microelectronics and proprietary digital Sound processing software to deliver the very best listening experience possible. With its included adapter cable the dSp can also be used as an outboard digital Sound processor with desktop and notebook computers.
