iBasso introduces the Brand New DX170 DAP


iBasso introduced recently the brand new DX170 Digital Audio Player (DAP), which is the successor of the DX160 that was released back in 2019. The design of the DX170 seems to be based on the original DX160, which was a pretty compact device and one of my most favourite Mid-Range HiFi Audio Player that I have reviewed on Moonstar Reviews.


The motto of the company for the DX170 is: A New Home for your Music and your Ears!


The new DX170 comes with some impressive hardware features such like Cirrus Logic’s latest 32-Bit CS43131 Dual DAC chipset, the latest RockChip RK3566 SoC, Dual Independent NDK Crystal Oscillators, a FPGA Master Audio Architecture, 1080P 5.0” Sharp On Cell display and many more.



The DX170 will be available in three different colour options, which are black, grey and blue.

The officially announced MSRP price of the iBasso DX170 will be 449 US$, while the device will be available for presale on July 13th.
