xDuoo XQ-100 is a very good Bluetooth 5.0 receiver using CSR8675 chip with dual ES9038Q2M DAC. It delivers superior audio performance while offering practical wireless use, allowing you to stream your music directly from your smartphone or any other connected device. In addition, it has particularly wide output connectivity options, allowing it to be integrated into most audio systems.
Using Qualcomm CSR8675 Bluetooth 5.0 receiver chip, XQ-100 provides stable signal reception. Additionally, it supports aptX, aptX LL, aptX HD and LDAC high-definition codecs, allowing you to enjoy superior wireless audio quality.
Wide Range of Output Connectivity
The XQ-100’s rear panel offers a variety of outputs in a variety of formats. On the digital side, there are optical and coaxial Toslink outputs, with the latter also acting as an input. For the analog part of the device, both single-ended RCA and balanced XLR outputs are provided.
SRC Upsampling Function
The XQ-100’s built-in SRC function allows you to upsample audio streams to a 24-bit 192 kHz sampling rate. This way, you can enjoy better audio quality even when using lower resolution files.
On the front panel of the XQ-100 is an OLED display that displays important information about the current playback. It displays the sample rate of the file, as well as the sample rate after upsampling, the Bluetooth codec used and the name of the song.
Dual ES9038Q2M DAC
The XQ-100 digital-to-analog conversion stage is based on the use of two ESS ES9038Q2M chips. Each of them is responsible for one channel, which allows you to achieve high SNR and extremely low THD+N for very accurate playback.
CS8406 SPDIF Interface
These DAC chips are coupled to the CS8406 SPDIF interface on the output, which allows the Bluetooth audio signal to be converted into a high-quality signal for optical and coaxial outputs. xDuoo XQ-100
