For many people, the transition from buying digital music and maintaining a local library has made way for streaming. But, if you want to experience the highest quality digital music, it’s still worth using a high-resolution music player instead. These devices can play high resolution (better than CD-quality) digital music without compression. They have a headphone jack, so you won’t need an adapter to use higher-end headphones or IEMs, and also support Bluetooth if you’d prefer to go wireless. Some Flagship Hi-Res Players also support streaming from services that offer high-resolution music, like TIDAL, without applying compression thanks to their DAC (digital to analogue converter). This best-of-both-worlds approach, allows you to natively play files purchased from sites like HD Tracks, Quboz, and Acoustic Sounds alongside songs from massive streaming libraries. If you still maintain a local digital audio collection, don’t want to take up space on your phone, or listen to high-resolution music often, getting a dedicated high-resolution music player is a good move.

Factors to consider while buying Hi-Res Players :
Build Quality - Many modern digital audio players come in a metal chassis that looks cool and offers plenty of protection. This is a much better option than the older plastic versions, as it is more durable.
Storage Options - In terms of storage, more is always better. Most digital audio players come with a certain amount of built-in storage, although this is not always the case. The player must feature at least one SD slot so that users can increase their storage options.
File Formats - The digital audio player you choose should deliver outstanding audio quality. It should also have the ability to recognise and play any lossy, lossless, or high-resolution audio file format. Choose a DAP with the ability to deliver digital audio sampled at up to 384 kHz in standard PCM and wav formats.
Tactile Functions - You should have control over the music and the players for setting up multiple things. Dedicated volume control is a feature you should seek, and the buttons (if any) should also be tactile. This will help you to use the buttons easily.
Streaming - Having local storage and the ability to expand is a blessing but the ability to connect via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is also an added feature that you should look for in Hi-Res Players.
Compatibility - Flagship Hi-Res Players should offer compatibility and work with both Windows and macOS, so you can transfer music to them regardless of which operating system your machine runs.
