ONIX Overture XM5

ONIX has released its first portable player, Overture XM5 . The company works closely with Shanling.

Signature ONIX Design

The classic look of ONIX, updated for modern times, fits perfectly with the Miracle and Mystic models. The main body, made of high quality CNC aluminum, provides a durable and beautiful design, especially when combined with the gold-plated volume control.

Premium Audio Configuration

Inspired by the ONIX Miracle audio design, Overture brings the sound of ESS’s flagship ES9039PRO DAC into the portable world. High detail, dynamics and energy combined with warm and smooth sounding voices. The TPA6120A2 amplifiers deliver over 1W into 32 ohms, offering exceptional power from a portable device.

Pure Music System

A simple and fast system based on the Ingenic X2000 platform, designed for the most demanding audiophiles. Without the distractions of modern smartphones, providing only basic music playback. Support for Hi-Res files from a MicroSD card, streaming via Tidal or DLNA/Airplay will provide continuous high-quality sound.

The multifunctional Hi-Fi component

ONIX XM5, designed as a portable headphone player, will easily fit into any role: at home, in the office or as part of a Hi-Fi system. Stream YouTube from your phone via Bluetooth, use as a USB DAC/amp with a work laptop, digital output for separate USB DACs, or use as a standalone DAC for powerful monoblock amplifiers – audiophiles will always find new ways to use the XM5 to its full potential.
