“High-resolution digital music, available from specialty online retailers such as HD Tracks, delivers levels of clarity and detail never before accessible to consumers. With the recent introduction of home and portable players to the market, Audison is proud to be the first to bring this format to aftermarket car audio,” the company states.
The new Audison bit Play HD will play FLAC audio files up to 24-bit/96KHz as well as 16-bit/44.1 files (CD quality) and many other file formats from existing digital music collections (including AAC, MP3, OGG, WAVE). In order to afford users easy access to their music collection, Audison has developed apps for Apple and Android devices, enabling complete control of the bit Play HD from smartphones or tablets. The bit Play HD generates a Wi-Fi signal within the vehicle for reliable wireless connectivity. For head units equipped with a video input, the bit Play HD can be connected via HDMI or Composite outputs, enabling users to view the interface and directly control file navigation functions and all internal settings of the bit Play HD via supplied remote control.
For storage of content, the bit Play HD SSD comes standard with an internal 240GB SSD hard drive that is both fast and insensitive to the vibration and shaking that occur while driving. Users can also select the bit Play HD without the internal hard drive if they prefer to supply their own storage. Both bitPlay models can be used with two drives connected simultaneously (one internal, one external) for expanded storage capacity.
Additional features include an optical output for connection to a processor or Audison amplifier with digital input, HDMI output with full HD resolution support, TOSLINK Optical output (S/PDIF) for up to 96 kHz/24 bit support, RCA Analog outputs, and two USB (2.0) ports.
The Audison bit Play HD and bit Play HD SSD are available now from authorized Audison dealers with respective MSRP’s of $649 and $799.
