Faithful sound reproduction
The new S-Master HX digital amp technology, independently developed for Walkman, has evolved to be compatible with Native DSD, Balanced and high output power formats. It reduces distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies-for rich, full-bodied sound.
Losing nothing in translation
The NW-WM1Z supports native DSD (Direct Stream Digital) audio files, which are sourced early in the production process. This means they retain all the authentic detail of the original recording.
The new standard of power
The Walkman features a balanced single plug, designed for the new 4.4F balanced connection cable. This separates left and right sound signals, while minimising signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration.
Preserving the feeling
Capturing every note and nuance with DSEE HX. Take the concert feeling home and experience your music as the artist intended, in near High-Resolution Audio quality. DSEE HX upscaling technology uses an algorithm to analyse your music and replace any lost information, so that the quality is almost high-resolution level. Choose from 5 modes to bring out the best in your music.
Pure sound translation with DC Phase Linearizer
Our DC Phase Linearizer works to effectively replicate a wide variety of sonic signatures. It applies digital-signal processing to match the phase characteristics of various types of analog amplifier to deliver a purer, more analog-like sound. Choose from six phase character settings.
Up to 30 hours' High-Resolution Audio playback
Keep the music playing as long as you are, with up to 30 hours' non-stop High-Resolution Audio playback (FLAC 96kHz/24bit) and 33 hours MP3 (128kbps).
Discover better Bluetooth with LDAC
LDAC is a new audio technology from Sony that allows you to enjoy high quality wireless audio via Bluetooth. With 3x the data transmitted, LDAC provides an enhanced wireless listening experience for all your music.
