Onkyo PD-S10 overview

  • 1Description

The Onkyo PD-S10B is a wireless digital audio player, offering audiophile quality in the palm of your hand. The PD-S10B's design elements include twin SABRE DACs (ES9018C2M) and twin amplifiers (ES9601K), which utilize customized high-current, high-capacity conductive polymer chip capacitors to achieve a clean audio experience that minimizes noise. The design of the PD-S10B is further enhanced by separating the audio circuits and digital processing from the heavily shielded power supply and battery, which limits interference and high-frequency interference. The unit is compatible with native DSD 5.6 MHz/2.8 MHz playback, MQA, and 192 kHz/32-bit FLAC/WAV Hi-Res Audio formats.

The PD-S10B stores its audio on 16GB of internal storage, which can be upgraded with one or two (optional) microSD cards. Each card slot supports up to 256GB cards, for a potential 528GB of total storage. To help make navigating all this content easier is an intuitive GUI and 2.4" touchscreen display. Flip through your audio and album art like you would on a typical smartphone, or use the physical buttons and volume knob for "no look" playback operation.

Additionally, the PD-S10B utilizes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to connect wirelessly to discover new music and stream internet radio stations, all while using your favorite Bluetooth headphones. Stream content from apps, such as Pandora or Spotify, or purchase music from the OnkyoMusic store. Or use Bluetooth to share your music to other compatible devices, such as a home audio system, wireless speaker, or car stereo. For wired listening, you can use the gold-plated 2.5mm 4-pole (balanced) or 3.5mm 3-pole (unbalanced) headphone/line outputs.

Adding to the PD-S10B's capabilities is support for a myriad of uncompressed and compressed file formats, digital up-conversion to near-DSD, a high precision EQ, and more. All this technology is housed in a rigid, one-piece machined aluminum chassis with a triple-thickness battery case that lets you take dynamic, high-resolution audio almost anywhere. The Onkyo PD-S10B ships with a USB cable and two film screen protectors.

    Onkyo PD-S10 reviews

    PD-S10B Wireless Digital Audio Player is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Limits to Bulk Loading 128GB memcard installed. Tried loading a large collection of audio files (65GB) in a single transfer - failed consistently partway through while in indexing step. Had to limit bulk loading to around 5-8GB at a time, then verify the copy/index had succeeded. Took several tries (and retries) before I was able to successfully get the entire collection loaded. so far, so good, since then...
