 Zidoo NEO ALPHA 4K Hi-End Media Player 


All-in-one HiFi Media Player
NEO α(Alpha) Signature Edition is the flagship of ZIDOO, it converges years of technologies
and brings refreshingly ultimate audio visual experiences for enthusiasts.

430 standard dimension, all-aluminum thickened chassis and silent passive heat dissipation
5-inch OLED touch screen, 4G DDR4 RAM and 32G eMMC storage, 512G internal SSD
ESS9038 Pro DAC, low noise and dual power supplies (linear power supply and digital power supply)
Dual HDMI audio video separation, supporting DSD Native 5.1 (HDMI Audio/DSD port)
NEO α (Alpha) is an all-in-one solution for HiFi player, DSD multichannel digital player.


Powerful Processor and Large Storage
RTD1619DR hexa-core 64-bit A55 processor and 64 bit bandwidth with larger processing capability have provided stable and efficient computing for the system. 4G DDR4 RAM and 32GB eMMC storage have greatly meet the demand to install massive applications


512G Internal SSD
NEO α(Alpha) is equipped with a 512G enterprise SSD for local music playback. High-quality digital music files can be easily stored, data reading is stable and fast. Heating and noise problem of traditional mechanical hard disk can be avoided


ESS9038Pro DAC
ESS9038 Pro DAC chip is the core component of NEO α(Alpha) audio decoding. -122db THD+N and 140db dynamic range are benchmark indicators among the industry. Support up to DSD512 and PCM768@32bit, both performance and sound quality can meet the demand of audiophiles


XMOS Audio Processor

Octa-core XMOS X216 audio processor can provide excellent digital audio processing with high-definition decoding, low latency, low jitter, and high flexibility. It also supports asynchronous transmission, PCM 768KHz, DSD 512 and 8x MQA decoding


Multichannel DSD Processing Technology

Equipped with a tailored multichannel DSD processing chip and clock reconstruction technology

Just for playing multichannel master recording music

Both multichannel DTS and DSD are supported

It is the first time to achieve DSD Native 5.1 lossless audio output from HDMI DSD port among the industry


Dual Power Supplies

With separate digital and analog power supplies to eliminate interference and improve the sound purity.

Linear power supply designed for analog audio circuits

which is composed of multi-winding large toroidal transformers

While switching power supply is for digital circuits with lower ripple and magnetic leakage interference.

With the patented technology of smart input voltage switching for linear power supply

it is compatible with voltages worldwide without flipping the switch.


Double HDMI for Audio and Video Separation

There are 2 HDMI ports for NEO α(Alpha)

HDMI 2.0a main output can output audio and video signals to 4K TV, projectors and A/V receiver

The other HDMI port(Audio/DSD) is designed to output audio signal only.

It is not only compatible with HDMI 1.4 A/V receiver but also can output DSD Native 5.1

With independent high-precision clocks and thus better audio and video performance.


Dual High-precision Clocks

There are 2 ultra-low noise femtosecond high-precision clocks for audio decoding circuit (45.1584MHz and 49.152MHz), which correspond to 44.1KHz and 48KHz multiplied sampling. Jitter has been effectively suppressed. It ensures high-precision digital/analog conversion, provides ultra-high integrity and resolution for analog audio output and reproduces the real sound details from music studio.


Multiple Digital Inputs

Multiple ports like USB DAC, Optical and Coaxial can be connected with various devices (computer, mobile phone, streamer, set-top box, CD player) to convert digital signal to analog signal by ESS9038pro DAC. No matter which way you use to play music, you will enjoy excellent sound quality.


Headphone Amp Output

6.35 headphone jack brings great convenience for headphone enthusiasts. The amp circuit adopts low ripple power supply, multi-level signal buffering, voltage and current staged amplifying processing, so that it has low noise, high current and large thrust. Two gain modes adjustment is to adapt different headphone in 16~300 ohm impedance range.


Balanced Circuit and Professional Preamp

As an all-in-one preamp, the volume can be adjusted easily by volume knob, and it can connect with power amp and active monitor speakers. Both XLR and RCA signals are processed by balanced circuit with good noise immunity. Multi-stage operational amplifier buffering and amplification, unique low-distortion filter design and independent signal loop have greatly improve channel separation, maximize the dynamic range and sound integrity.


Featured Audio Components
In order to obtain audio indicators and good sound quality, both circuit design and materials are rigorous, such as immersion gold PCB and anti-interference wiring. Audio components like 6pcs of operational amplifier, OMRON relay, WIMA and ELNA resistors are carefully chosen.



Intelligent Music Library

NEO α(Alpha) is good at managing music resource. Music files from network drives and local hard drive can be added conveniently, then generating exclusive music database. Manage music easily and enjoy lossless music as you wish.


Music Streaming Services
NEO α(Alpha) incorporates popular music services like TIDAL, Qobuz, HIGHRESAUDIO. Music can be pushed from music apps installed in mobile phone, tablet and PC to NEO α(Alpha) via Airplay and DLNA protocols. TIDAL connect, Spotify connect and Roon Ready are also available


Lossless Bluetooth Audio

NEO α(Alpha) has a internal lossless Bluetooth receiver with Qualcomm flagship QCC5125 module. Supporting aptX/aptX LL/aptX HD/LDAC audio transmission to quick connect with mobile phone and tablet and enjoy CD quality music.


CD Ripping and Playback

NEO α(Alpha) can play CD discs (DTS CD and MQA) by connecting with CD-ROM. CD ripping is based on ZIDOO HASH algorithm, album name and track names can be ripped losslessly, detailed album and artists info can be generated automatically.


4K UHD Resolution Technology

NEO α(Alpha) video decoding is based on Linux and supports almost all video decoding including 4K Dolby Vision and HDR10+. The output up tot 3840 x 2160 60Hz, HDR (Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10, HLG), 12bit and BT.2020 wide color range.


Video Decoding and Output Based on Linux Framework

Based on Linux video decoding and output framework, NEO α(Alpha) has less data loss and image quality with high reproduction. Clear voices and vivid images bring us excellent home theater experience
