Available for more than four years, the Hidizs AP80 lossless music player might be outdated for playing Bluetooth audio, but its ability to handle lossless audio and FM Radio stations keep it interesting in 2022. This Hi-Res Audio-certified compact piece of hardware is today 35% off on Amazon.

Introduced almost half a decade ago, the Hidizs AP80 lossless music player still has audio capabilities superior to most smartphones on the market (at least when it comes to wired audio). The ES9218P DAC chip helps it to deliver an SNR of up to 126 dB and -114 dB THD+N. This little piece of audio hardware is Hi-Res Audio certified and features a 2.45-inch touchscreen made by Samsung. Thanks to the ongoing 35% off Cyber Monday Deal exclusively available to Amazon Prime members, the US$199 list price can go down to US$129.99. 

With 469 ratings and 207 answered questions, the Hidizs AP80 is quite popular for an underdog in the niche category of high fidelity audio players. Its current rating is 3.9 out of 5, with 52% perfect ratings and 20% scores of 4/5. The breakdown by feature, however, looks pretty good. It starts with a perfect score for "value for money" and continues with 4.6/5 for material quality, 4.5 for sound quality, 4.0 for battery life, and 3.9 for the touchscreen.

In addition to the technical details mentioned earlier, it should be noted that the Hidizs AP80 is powered by the Ingenic X1000 processor and supports micro SD cards up to 1 TB in size. It also sports bi-directional USB DAC capabilities and features a 3.5 mm audio jack for standard headphone output and Line-Out. The list of supported audio formats is quite long and ends with DSD 64/128 and 32-bit 384 kHz PCM. This player runs HiBy OS 3.0 and features Mage Sound 8-Ball Tuning based on a parametric EQ and sound field adjustment. LDAC and aptX are supported via Bluetooth 4.1, and those who still listen to FM Radio will be pleased to find out that this is also in the features list.
