    Made for High-Resolution Audio

    Made for High-Resolution Audio

    Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher than CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you. The NW-WM1A Walkman® also supports the very latest 384 kHz / 32-bit rate and DSD Native Playback.

    Native DSD

    Native DSD

    The NW-WM1A supports native DSD audio files, which are sourced early in the production process. This means they retain all the authentic detail of the original recording.

    S-Master HX

    S-Master HX

    The new S-Master™ HX digital amp technology, independently developed for Walkman, cuts distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies for rich, full bodied sound.

    DSEE HX

    DSEE HX

    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. 

    Incorporating the ø4.4mm Balanced Standard Plug

    Incorporating the ø4.4mm Balanced Standard Plug

    Enjoy clear, precise, dynamic sound with balanced audio. With a new ø4.4mm Balanced Standard Plug, noise picked up from the wire to the amplifier is reduced. The result – superior sound, delivered with clarity.

    Aluminium frame

    Aluminium frame

    An aluminium alloy frame provides a highly rigid case that’s resistive to electrical noise and other interference for stable, high-quality sound.

    Oxygen-free Copper cable 

    Oxygen-free Copper cable 

    A low-resistance Oxygen-free Copper cable offers low distortion and superior channel separation.

    MELF resistors

    MELF resistors

    Reduce noise and minimise distortion in the audio signal path with MELF type resistors.
