Zappiti Pro 4K HDR Audiocom Cinema Edition

Published : 2019-10-09 - Categories : Reviews

In partnership with Zappiti in France, Audiocom unveils the new Zappiti Pro 4K HDR Audiocom Cinema Edition, an enhanced version of the ISF certified "Zappiti Pro 4K HDR" media player.

Presented at the CEDIA Expo 2019, the award winning Zappiti Pro 4K HDR is the world’s first media player to receive the ISF certification by the Imaging Science Foundation. The Zappiti Pro 4K HDR Audiocom Cinema Edition takes Zappiti’s platform and improves it to create a true, no-compromise 4K universal media player of truly world-class quality and performance.

Power Supply upgrades:
Audiocom’s Pro 4K Cinema Edition features an improved power supply using components specially selected to achieve the lowest noise; including high current Schottky diodes, audio-grade low ESR capacitors with additional film bypassing. The benefits are a reduction in noise artefacts at the output resulting in a cleaner power supply.

Main Board and Zero Signal board Modifications:
The standard SMD electrolytic capacitors on the main board for bypassing and decoupling are upgraded to the best low ESR OS-CON polymer capacitors. These capacitors provide excellent noise reduction to the local regulation and integrated circuits for optimum data processing.

The performance of the Zero Signal board is also enhanced by utilising OS-CON Polymer decoupling capacitors.

Femto Clock:
Realising the importance of low jitter in the video domain, Audiocom installs a very high precision clock for the Realtek RTD1295 processor (SoC) to optimise the video and audio data processing. The new clock is highly accurate to within 0.01ppm with an extremely low jitter figure of 77 Femtoseconds making it one of the lowest in the industry.

New Power Supply Filtering:
Audiocom equips the Pro 4K HDR Cinema Edition with enhanced power supply filtering; for a cleaner AC mains supply. A very high-quality Furutech NCF IEC inlet with 6N Copper wiring is fitted to the power input board. Furutech’s NCF technology provides the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping to the incoming power line achieving a lower noise floor.

EMI/RFI Conditioning:
A digital media player is a busy environment for electromagnetic noise. This high-frequency noise spectrum can pollute the sensitive power supply circuits and reduce performance. Audiocom applies a material that works to cancel out the negative effects of EMI noise and improve the conditions for video and audio signal transfer.

The World’s Best 4K Media Player:
The Pro 4K HDR Cinema Edition player raises the bar for video and audio playback, taking picture and sound quality to exciting new heights. The video playback has improved picture depth, deeper Black levels, greater contrast, increased dynamic range, more natural tones and colours making movie watching an immersive experience. The sound quality is equally thrilling, reproducing a captivating sound both from the HDMI audio and digital audio outputs. Spoken voice is clearer and more discernible, with film scores having an increased sense of acoustic space, greater dynamics, improved depth, and a more natural tonality.
"We are proud to be able to offer this modification of the fabulous Zappiti Pro 4K HDR in partnership with Audiocom AV, Ltd," said Christophe Cherel, marketing director at Zappiti World. "This modification raises the bar even higher with unmatched image quality and improved digital audio output."

Note: This modification is the only one certified by Zappiti with an official guarantee. This is the only existing modification based on the technical schematics of the motherboard and Realtek processor, allowing to obtain exceptional results in image quality and sound. On the other hand, the feet of the reader are not modified compared to the original device. Several types of insulating feet were evaluated with different equipment racks and the results were varied, inconclusive and, in some cases, degraded performance. Therefore, we recommend that customers try their isolation feet or platforms themselves and decide if they have any performance benefits.

Warning:Audiocom recommends running in 400 hours to achieve optimal audio and video performance.
