*NEW* Designed with the best possible audio playback quality in mind, this Colorfly Pocket HiFi C4 is a new breed of device to 
 
replace your current portable music player with one that's sole purpose is music! It is so good in fact, that you may want to use it
 
to replace your CD player... The excellent 24bit/192kHz sound quality is largely due to the single HiFi DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter) that
 
has been used inside the Pocket HiFi C4. Wan team who designed the Colorfly Pocket HiFi C4 Pro decided to use the CIRRUS logic CS4398, a
 
high-end chipset usually only found in top-of the-range HiFi components. This DAC offers outstanding levels of performance with excellent
 
dynamic range up to 120dB and the ability to decode 24bit/192kHz audio. Headfonia Review of the Colorfly Pocket HiFi C4 Pro
 
The three world firsts of Pocket HIFI The first portable player that can play audio files of 24 bit/192 KHz.  The first portable player whose jitter is
 
less than 5 picoseconds. The first portable player that can support a 300 ohm earphone. Colourfly is a top-flight portable player or even an
 
extension of your hifi system. Look at all the ways you can use the C4!  Plug in your favorite headphones and use the Colorfly as a high-end
 
portable music source. Use it as an analogue music source and connect the analogue 6.5mm output directly to your hifi system. (Use an optional
 
adapter cable - stereo 6.5mm to RCA). As an SP/DIF digital source of music without mechanical vibration caused by moving parts and with a
 
battery power supply. Acting as a DAC (digital to analogue converter) using the SP/DIF digital input and analog output and up-sampling is also
 
possible. The Colorfly C4 can be used as a hifi sample rate converter,
 
using the coaxial digital input and then the coaxial digital output.  Jitter can be reduced!

Description:
 
Why does it sound so good?
 
The excellent 24 bit / 192kHz (maximum) sound quality is largely due to the single hifi DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter) that
 
has been used inside the Pocket Hifi C4. The team who designed the Colorfly Pocket hifi C4 Pro used the CIRRUS logic CS4398,
 
a high-end chipset usually only found in top-of the-range hifi components. This DAC offers outstanding levels of performance with
 
excellent dynamic range up to 120dB and the ability to decode up to 24bit / 192kHz (WAV) audio depending on the format.
 
There's nothing like the Colourfly C4 for Hifi Sound.  The first portable player can play the audio files up to 24 bit /192 kHz
 
The first portable player whose jitter less than 5 picoseconds. The first portable player can drive 300 Ohm or more headphone loads (many
 
customers are successfully using 600 Ohm headphones)  Plays WAV (up to and including 192 kHz / 24bit), FLAC (44.1kHz, 48kHz and 96kHz
 
16 Bit), OGG Vorbis, APE (44.1kHz and 48kHz 16 Bit) and MP3 (up to 320kbps) files EQ Function gives you influence on the character of the
 
music playback - customise to your preferences - Normal, Bass, Classical, Rock, Pop, Jazz  Comes with 32GB of Flash Memory built in
 
Ability to expand memory by adding a micro SD Card (up to 32GB - not supplied) to expand memory to 64GB total High quality componentry
 
including patented Jitter Kill Technology to improve the music quality  TCXO (Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator) to ensure quality -
 
this is the heart of the system, a clock that will help control jitter  Capacitors - one of the most influential components on sound - the C4 features
 
'Silmic II' capacitors with silk inside from Elna
 
(Japan)
Fader style volume control - quick and easy to use!
 
Handmade walnut wood and brushed metal surfaces with a somewhat gothic or medieval imagery - certainly looks new and  different
 
Regius walnut: black walnut in North America
 
The outer casing material of the Pocket HIFI C4 player is made of the black walnut in North America. The black walnut had been
 
called regius walnut. The pleasant vignette is formed by the clear, smooth glossy and wavelike grains and the clear annual ring.
 
It provides each music fan a unique player.  
 
 
Precision: it is manufactured manually.
 
Wan¡'s team adopted to process the wood by the CNC numerically-controlled machine in the constant temperature and humidity
 
workshop. The design and the special curve on the wood were engraved manually.  A nostalgic stem for adjusting the volume
 
We used the flagship series ¡°pro-audio series¡± of the famous ALPS volume potentiometer in Japan. The dust cover and grounding
 
connection were ordered according to the specifications of the Pocket HIFI player. The rate of the volume error was lower than 5%
 
in average after 1,000 hours¡¯ text. The volume error rates of the HIFI player was15% lower than the ALPS official data.
 
Interior Structures on the Pocket Hifi C4 Pro Aim to broadcast the audio of HIFI level for a portable player the size of a cigarette pack, the
 
assembly such as circuit board, chip, even the capacitor must be selected carefully. The traditional player used the signal chip whose main
 
structure was made of MPU, DAC and earphone amplifier. This structure always processed the audio at the cost of great loss. This kind of voice
 
sounded stiff, rigid and apathetic. It could make your ears feel tired, if you heard it for a long time. The internal structure of the Pocket HIFI player
 
was much more complex than traditional MP3 player. In the Pocket HIFI player, the original audio must pass through 8 units from input to output
 
for the sake of getting the perfect voice. Please look at the reference chart as follows:
 

 

 
Jitter Kill
 
On the basic of top material and the complex unit designs, the structures which were made of by C4 clock generator, TCXO high-
 
precision crystal Oscillators and the CS8422 SRC chip of CIRRUS output the unbelievable rate of jitter which was lower than
 
5ps.On month day of year, the technique of circuit named Jitter Kill was registered as a patent for the other special technique of
 
the Pocket HIFI player.
