High-Resolution Audio – music as the artist intended
High-Resolution Audio works by converting analogue sound to digital at a higher and more precise rate than CDs. High-Resolution Audio can have a greater rate of 24bit/96Hz, capturing more of the details and subtleties in your music. Hear your tracks exactly as they were recorded with no compromise on sound.
Feel the music with 100w RMS total power
Despite being compact in size, this system delivers 50W + 50w of output power. So you can enjoy your music in clear, powerful sound whatever the volume.
Plays all your audio files
The MAP-S1 supports a range of compressed and non-compressed file types, including FLAC, WAV, AIFF, DSD (DFF), and DSD (DSF). You’ll be able to enjoy your entire collection, regardless of file formats.
Restore your music files with DSEE HX
The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) upscales your compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC and WMA) and takes them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the high-range sound lost in the compression process, DSEE HX produces your digital music files in rich, natural sound, closer to the quality of the original recording.
Savour every note with S-Master HX digital amplifier
Traditional amps require multiple digital to analogue conversions – each affecting quality. Sony’s S-Master HX amp is 100% digital for power without distortion. A Digital Signal Processor (DSP) analyses your digital file. Then the S-Master HX amplifier converts the signal to an analogue wave that’s closer to High-Resolution Audio. Finally, the signal flows through a Low Pass Filter (LPF) for accurate sound reproduction.
Complete your sound system via inputs and outputs
Reach new heights for your Hi-Fi set-up with the MAP-S1. Hook up your speakers through two outputs: there’s also analogue input and outputs. The LAN port allows you to easily connect to your home network.
Play your old favourites with a built-in CD player
Dust off your CD collection and enjoy your old favourites in sharp, precise sound quality. A built-in CD player supports CD, CD-R, and CD-RW discs with shuffle, repeat, and program functions for listening control.
Tune into DAB digital radio
Quickly and easily access a huge range of DAB radio stations with 20 station presets – for pure sound with less interference. Or tune into FM and AM for your favourite radio shows.
Plug in and play with two USB ports
Connect your smartphone, tablet, MP3 player or USB stick to the front USB port to hear your favourite playlists. There’s also a rear USB port for your PC, so you can enjoy High-Resolution Audio.
Stylish, compact design
The MAP-S1 is all about style and substance. Put it on a shelf or a cabinet: the compact design looks good anywhere. The strong aluminium build also helps reduces vibration for less distortion.
Pairs perfectly with SS-HW1 speakers
Fine-tuned to get the very best from the MAP-S1, the SS-HW1 High-Resolution Audio speakers feature a 13cm woofer with a Mica Reinforced Cellular fibre cone that minimises unwanted resonance. A Wide Dispersion Super Tweeter reproduces extended high frequencies with unprecedented clarity.
Easy access to your iTunes library with AirPlay
AirPlay lets you stream high quality audio from Apple devices directly to the receiver, using your existing home network. It even allows simultaneous playback on a number of devices, so you can enjoy the same playlist in different rooms.
Seamless streaming with Wi-Fi and DLNA
All your music is a simple connection away. Stream your favourite songs wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop using Wi-Fi – there’s no need for cables. Enjoy music from your DLNA-compatible home server or PC – DLNA acts as a data bridge across your devices.
NFC and Bluetooth® connectivity
To start streaming music wirelessly, simply touch your NFC smartphone or tablet against the MAP-S1 to make a Bluetooth connection. There’s no wired connections or complex setup. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair manually with Bluetooth.
Enjoy high quality Bluetooth streaming
Support for the AAC and apt-X codecs means you get better sound quality than with standard Bluetooth audio.
