Oppo’s hi-res audio chip could make wireless earbuds as good as wired – the new MariSilicon Y chipset is reportedly set to be bringing lossless wireless audio capabilities.
Oppo’s Hi-Res Audio Chip Could Make Wireless Earbuds As Good As Wired
Oppo may just have set a new standard for wire-free hi-fi and also earbuds after it recently unveiled a new Bluetooth that it claims has lossless hi-res audio capabilities and features.
Developed in-house, the company has said that its new MariSilicon Y SoC transmits 24-bit/192KHz audio, which is just above the bit depth and a sampling rate of CDs and a feat that Oppo has said is a first for the industry.
The New Chipset Is Able To Increase Bluetooth Bandwidth by 50%
The tech company claims that the new chipset is able to increase Bluetooth bandwidth by a huge 50% in contrast with the highest spec Bluetooth SoCs that are at the moment on the market. You should also know that the MariSilicon Y SoC chip is also reported to be one of the first Bluetooth audio devices to support new encoding standard L3C, alongside established codecs such as Sony’s proprietary LDAC solution, LHDC, L2DC, L3C, AAC, and the good old vanilla SBC.
Oppo Made the Announcement at Its Annual Inno Day Showcase Event
The announcement was made by the Chinese consumer electronics company at its yearly Inno Day showcase event recently.
Oppo also has revealed the personalized audio capabilities of the chip with its onboard processing thus allowing for a Music Extraction feature that makes use of AI to isolate the sound of specific stems in a song such as drum, bass, vocals, and other instruments. A spatial rendering feature on the other hand lets listeners tweak the spatial location information of the sound after the sound has been isolated.
