"The Zappiti Pro 4K HDR Media Player has gone where home theater PCs and DIY movie servers have failed to go...Zappiti has included an excellent video processing solution and high-quality audio output"
Secrets of HomeTheater
FIRST PLAYER IN THE INDUSTRY TO RECEIVE ISF CERTIFICATION
The Zappiti Pro 4K HDR has received the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) certification, which guarantees the best viewing experience possible. ISF is leader in that creates standards for display devices so that they can look their best in any environment..
EXCLUSIVE R-CORE POWER SUPPLY
The Zappiti Pro 4K HDR is powered by a massive R-Core type power transformer, which provides superior efficiency over standard power supplies and delivers a very clean and robust power source, producing low noise and significantly lower external magnetic field interference than traditional transformers equipped with a laminated steel core. R-cores transformers offer less capactive coupling between primary and secondary (less noise getting through) than toroid transformers.
In addition to high-end R-Core type power transformer, the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR uses top-quality components from world-renowned suppliers to ensure the best possible video and audio performances such as WIMA and ERO capacitors (Germany), Nichicon and NCC capacitors (Japan), Philips diodes (NL) and JEC power connector (used in aerospace industry).
HIGH QUALITY HEADPHONE OUTPUT
For top audio fidelity the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR is equipped with a dedicated headphone circuit that features a high speed ultra low distortion wideband system that's paired with a fully discrete final output stage. The dedicated amplifier is able to drive low sensitivity headphones (SPL). The headphone jack features a 6.35mm connector for compatibility with premium home and professional studio headphone models.
EXCLUSIVE ZERO SIGNAL TECHNOLOGY
In order to optimize audio video signal transmission quality, the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR features a Zero Signal transport. By connecting your Zappiti Pro 4K HDR to a free RCA input connector on your AV receiver, the potential difference is eliminated for a perfect balance between different devices with a suitable reference level (ground). Mass loop effects (buzz) are also eliminated.
ULTRA RIGID CHASSIS
The 1.6 mm-thick chassis is reinforced with a 3 mm-thick steel plate rigid top cover. This solid chassis structure and overall rigidity provides low level of external vibration to the inner electronics, offering superior audio and video playback
DUAL HDD SLOT SSD READY
With its dual 3.5 -inches SATA hot-swap rack, the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR is capable of supporting up to 32 TB total storage internally; the equivalent of about 600 Blu-rays or 300 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays. And as it is possible to exchange hard drives, you have no capacity limit! With the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR, you no longer need to worry about storage problems.
Note: When using 2 hard drives, the unit is able to mix contents from the 2 drives. When using more than 2 drives, it is possible to create a Zappiti collection for each hard drive.
Hi-Quality Backlit RC
Easily control the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR media player with the IR remote control (included). You can also control the player using a wireless mouse or keyboard (not supplied). In addition, the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR can be controlled by universal remote controls from leading brands like as Control 4, Logitech Harmony, ProControl, RTI or Savant.
The Zappiti Pro 4K HDR features high quality gold-plated output ports for HDMI connectors, analog audio left/right, audio digital coaxial for better sonic accuracy and more detailed, natural sound as well as less corrosive effect in time. Zappiti gold-plated ports use advanced engineering methods and the highest-quality materials to reduce noise and interference and deliver cleaner, natural, more accurate sound from your components. Gold-plated materials are also used for Wi-Fi and CVBS ports.
The incredible Audio Cinema Edition
Powered by Audiocom
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 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 utilizing OS-CON Polymer decoupling capacitors.
Realizing the importance of low jitter in the video domain, Audiocom installs a very high precision clock for the Realtek RTD1295 processor (SoC) to optimize 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.
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.
