When designing the HF Player’s digital filter, our engineering team took the unique characteristics of your device’s D/A converter and other associated hardware into consideration in order to achieve outstanding performance. Each filter coefficient is individually tuned according to sampling frequency for sound quality that surpasses theoretical signal-to-noise ratios, not only for Studio Master-quality Hi-Res Audio, but also for compressed audio files such as AAC and MP3. With HF Player, you can experience a clarity and vibrancy previously unobtainable on your mobile device.
As well as delivering stunning audio fidelity, HF Player takes advantage of your device’s rapid multi-core processing abilities without noticeably affecting battery life. Our design team analyzed conventional signal processing algorithms and utilized the parallel arithmetic capabilities of your device’s CPU to achieve higher processing speeds while improving energy efficiency and optimizing sound quality. This means you can enjoy premium sound on the go without your phone becoming sluggish or quickly draining its batteries.
