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.
* Devices connected to the AK XB10 must support the aptX™ and aptX™ HD codecs for 24bit audio playback.
