Qualcomm® aptX™ HD
- While the AK XB10 is a device that wirelessly transmits audio data from smartphones via Bluetooth,
- it is quite different from conventional Bluetooth devices, in that it supports the aptX™ HD Bluetooth codec.
- Just as the display resolutions of televisions evolved from standard to high-definition to 4K ultra-HD for sharper
- image quality, we are now in the era in which Bluetooth now supports 24-bit audio resolution.
- 24-bit HD audio that was simply not possible with previous Bluetooth technologies
- can now be fully enjoyed with aptX™ HD.
- Typically used in professional broadcasting, the original aptX™ audio codec is widely used
- for 16-bit near-CD quality sound.
- The benefits of the aptX™ codec include superior compression, low computational cost,
- and low transmission delay.
- Launched in early 2016, the next-generation aptX™ HD codec is capable of transmitting up to
- 24-bit/48 kHz audio that is faithful to the original audio file.
* Devices connected to the AK XB10 must support the aptX™ and aptX™ HD codecs for 24bit audio playback.
