Onkyo Aims for Highest SQ in Smartphone

Based on the latest DAP from Onkyo, the DP-X1A, Onkyo and Pioneer Innovation will launch the Android smartphone "GRANBEAT DP-CMX1" in late February 2017. The CMX1 will be first smartphone with full balanced circuit and also 2.5mm balanced output. The balanced output supports both A.C.G and BTL. The smartphone will feature Android 6.0 and dual SIM-slot. Volume control will be through a wheel dial. It has built-in storage of 128 GB and has a single micro-SD card slot supporting up to 256 GB, for a total of 384 GB.

The components used for both the Android and audio are largely similar to what's used in DP-X1A, however, the chassis and circuit board are redesigned for CMX1. Separate boards are used for Android and audio. DAC is (dual?) Sabre ES9018C2M and amp is 9601K.

Retail price will be around 84,800 JPY (approx. 1,060 SGD)

$1000? Why don't they give license the technology to Apple and other phones?

Even if Onkyo wants to license it out, who will take it? You think Apple will want an audiophile phone after they remove the dac and amp component and 3.5mm jack from the iPhone 7?

There is nothing ground breaking in terms of technology, just a matter of how much R&D you want to put in to tune out such a sound.

The price of 1,060 SGD is reasonable considering how much DAPs of similar quality will cost. I believe the DPX1 costs 9XX when it was first launched in Sg.

Unfortunately, I don't think any of our telcoms will bring this in because this is really a niche product.

Interesting, are Japanese sets Telco locked? Or can ship and use in SG?

Edit: Just checked, seems unlocked. Now wondering if SG will have official sets haha

No, SG telcos definitely won't be selling this phone. Will have to look for those JP phone importers to get this.

Ok noted, I doubt the local Onkyo will bring it too.
