Frequently Asked Questions

What makes the Goldhorn Hi-Res Player different from standard music players?

Answer: Goldhorn Hi-Res Players are explicitly designed for high-resolution audio playback, with higher sampling rates and bit depths than standard players, delivering unparalleled sound quality.

How do I access my high-resolution music library with the player?

Answer: You can load your music library onto the player via USB or access it wirelessly through your mobile device, ensuring your entire high-resolution collection is at your fingertips.

Can I stream music on the Goldhorn Hi-Res Player?

Answer: Yes, our players are equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to stream high-resolution audio from compatible streaming services.
What defines Hi-Res Audio and how does it compare to standard audio formats like MP3 or CDs?

Answer: Hi-Res Audio is defined by its higher sampling rates and greater bit depth compared to standard audio formats. While CDs are limited to a 44.1kHz sampling rate and 16-bit depth, Hi-Res Audio files typically start at 96kHz/24-bit, extending up to 192kHz/24-bit or more. This results in a richer, more detailed sound that is closer to the original studio recording, unlike compressed MP3 files or CDs, which lose some audio information to fit into their respective formats.

What are some common file formats for Hi-Res Audio, and how do they maintain sound quality?
Answer: Common file formats for Hi-Res Audio include FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec), ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec), WAV, and DSD (Direct Stream Digital). These formats are either lossless or uncompressed, meaning they preserve all the audio information from the original recording without the data loss associated with lossy formats like MP3. This preservation of detail ensures that the sound quality is maintained at a level that closely mirrors the original performance or studio output.
Do I need special equipment to experience the full benefits of Hi-Res Audio?
Answer: Yes, to fully experience the benefits of Hi-Res Audio, you would need equipment capable of handling the higher sampling rates and bit depths. This includes a digital audio player (DAP) or a DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) that supports Hi-Res Audio formats, as well as high-quality headphones or speakers designed to reproduce the extended range of frequencies and dynamics found in Hi-Res files. Without the proper equipment, you might not discern the enhanced detail and clarity that Hi-Res Audio offers.
