Sharp Releases Wireless High Resolution Audio Player with 24-bit/96 KHz Support


Digital music fans and audiophiles, unite!

The above statement is something that a lot of music lovers never expected to happen -- but it's happening, people. A slew of companies have been releasing high-resolution audio players with both the digital music listener and the audiophile in mind.

Now, Sharp Electronics is adding its name into the selection with its Wireless High Resolution Audio Player (SD-WH1000U). The SD-WH1000U can transmit 7.1 channels of digital sound, with support for 24 bit/96kHz uncompressed audio, all without cables or other add-ons.

First announced back in January at CES, the SD-WH1000U is based on the Wireless Speakers and Audio (WiSA) standard. That means that users can transmit music to any WiSA-compliant speaker system, as well as any traditional passive speaker with the Sharp Wireless Bridge (VR-WR100U) attached. This basically means that you can have high-res audio on any speaker system. It can even trasmit uncompressed Full HD video to your TV, via the Wireless HD (WiHD) standard and the included adapter.

The hook on the player isn't just the great sound, but that it also comes equipped with a SACD and Blu-ray disc drive so you can access a variety of different files and formats. The player can snag files on a hard drive via USB, as well as connect to a home network to play music from a network-attached storage device. Also worth noting is that it uses the 5.2-5.8GHz band, so it doesn't have to share (or interfere with) Wi-Fi devices.

Sharp has also made the SD-WH1000U compatible with the company's mobile app for iOS and Android devices.

Sharp plans to start selling the SD-WH1000U Wireless High Resolution Audio Player sometime in September, with an MSRP of $4,999. The Sharp Wireless Bridge will also be available around the same time, priced at $999.

Chicken Nachos are the perfect thing for a busy weeknight dinner. They are easy to throw together using leftover chicken and can be customized using whatever Mexican toppings your gang enjoys.

Vorwerk Kobold VR300 Review

At nearly £1000, does the VR300 offer enough to justify the purchase when you can pick up a robot vac for £100s less? Find out in our Vorwerk Kobold VR300 review
Should I Buy The Vorwerk Kobold VR300?
It’s expensive, but the Kobold VR300 provides an impressive vacuuming experience that we think could rival that of a conventional vacuum cleaner, but it’s not as smart as some rivals – yet. The low-profile design, upgraded SLAM technology and D-shape design allow the VR300 to safely navigate around obstacles and reach every last nook and cranny.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
