High-Res Audio

Impacto universal can handle Hi-Res audio files in their uncompressed and full‑resolution format. As a control function, the USB-DAC features an integrated Hi-Res LED: when it lights up, high‑resolution audio files are indeed played back. The musical difference when you are listening to hi-res audio files is therefore not only audible but also visible.

Immerse yourself in the multidimensional world of high-resolution music with a hi-res player app of your choice. For example, you could use USB Audio Player PRO for Android devices, foobar2000 for Windows, and Audirvana Plus 3 for MacBook. This way, you can discover music recordings the way they were intended to be heard originally.

Hi-Res Audio Logo

High-Resolution Audio

As a seal of quality, the Hi–Res Audio logo stands for high-resolution audio reproduction and is assigned by the Japan Audio Society. Products approved for bearing the Hi-Res Audio logo are able to handle Hi-Res files without quality loss and have to fulfil strict requirements:

  • Must feature an analogue frequency response of at least 40 kHz.
  • Must be able to handle a resolution of at least 96 kHz/24 Bit.

Due to these high standards, Hi–Res Audio devices guarantee that the quality of CDs or compressed MP3 files is exceeded by far and that the entire detail richness of the music becomes audible.
