Roon Ready

Roon is an incredibly rich and engaging way to browse and organize your music. It runs on most Mac, Windows, and Linux PCs, or on other products which include Roon Core. Being Roon Ready means that ZIDOO network players transparently discover and connect to Roon without any configuration, and bit-perfect audio is delivered from Roon to your network player. Together, Roon and ZIDOO deliver the power, flexibility, and performance of networked audio, with the easiest setup and highest reliability available.

Bluetooth APTX HD

We can easily enjoy music by connecting NEO S with cell phone via Bluetooth. Qualcomm flagship CSR8675 module supports APTX and LDAC lossless audio compression technology, which can overcome bandwidth barriers in standard technology. Even if audio is transmitted via Bluetooth, CD-level sound quality can be achieved

CD Ripping and Playback

NEO S supports CD ripping and playback when connecting with CD-ROM via USB port
Names of albums/songs can be smartly matched by the ID of CD via special HASH
Ripped files can be collected and managed in ZIDOO Music Player

4K UHD Image Quality

NEO S adopts RTD1619 DR hexa-core 64-bit A55 processor. In addition to efficient and stable system, it has also equipped with 4K UHD decoding and processing technology. BD UHD Blu-ray disc and self-made media files are supported, and up to 3840 x 2160 60Hz, HDR and BT.2020 wide range
