Pioneer adds USB-OTG functionality to XDP-30R Digital Audio Player

Already one of the world's only Digital Audio Players (DAPs) to offer TIDAL Masters (MQA) mobile streaming capability, the Pioneer XDP-30R has also now been endowed with USB-OTG functionality. This allows it to also function as a Digital Playback Source/Transport when used with suitable external Digital To Analogue converters, amplifiers/speakers with suitable internal DACs etc.

The latest FW version -1.20/17Z18AEP - contains the following changes:

Supports USB-OTG Digital output function (DSD 5.6MHz with DoP transfer, Maximum 192kHz/32bit)
Supports playback in order of "Disc No." Tag (edited via X-DAP Link for Windows)
Minor bug fixes and improvements stability.
DSD: 5.6 / 2.8 MHz (DoP transfer), FLAC, WAV: PCM 192 kHz / 32 bit USB - OTG digital output function.
Not supported - outputting DSD 11.2MHz out with USB-OTG.
Not supported - outputting FLAC, WAV 384 kHz / 352.8 kHz with USB-OTG.
In the case of MQA files, there is a fixed output "PCM 44.1 kHz /48 kHz" when using USB-OTG.
Note: an OTG cable is not included in this product.

Update procedure: There are two types of update methods - via Network and via microSD card. Users are advised to consult their instruction manuals for further details.
