    High-Resolution Audio for uncompromised sound

    High-Resolution Audio for uncompromised sound

    Experience digital music to the fullest with High-Resolution Audio. By capturing music at a higher rate than CD, increasing both audio samples per second and the bit-rate accuracy of each sample, High-Resolution Audio offers an uncompromised rendition of an artist’s music. Savour every breath and subtle movement for a truly emotional experience.

    Noise Cancelling headphones put your music centre-stage

    Noise Cancelling headphones put your music centre-stage

    The NW-ZX100 series includes exclusive Noise Cancelling headphones , so you can shut out the sounds of the world around you. Choose from a number of settings, depending on your environment, and immerse yourself deeper into the music as Noise Cancelling offsets ambient noise, for a more engaging listening experience.

    Premium components for premium sound

    Premium components for premium sound

    The NW-ZX100 features updated circuitry, optimised for ultimate clarity and sound quality. A high rigidity frame, along with improved solder impedance and a low dielectric board, all combine to deliver an exhilarating portable audio experience.

    Direct Stream Digital (DSD) playback for High-Resolution Audio

    Direct Stream Digital (DSD) playback for High-Resolution Audio

    Enjoy studio-quality sound, thanks to the Direct Stream Digital (DSD) audio codec — designed specifically for High-Resolution Audio. This 1-bit format utilises a stream of very high frequency 1s and 0s to recreate audio waveforms at a higher resolution than conventional codecs. The result is clearer, crisper, High-Resolution Audio quality.

    S-Master HX digital amplifier: utmost sonic purity

    S-Master HX digital amplifier: utmost sonic purity

    Enjoy the best High-Resolution Audio experience with the S-Master HX digital amplifier. Using a simplified and fully digital signal path, S-Master HX reproduces the subtleties and wide frequency range of high resolution formats. Unlike conventional amplifiers, it maintains the digital signal until right before the speaker output, eliminating distortion — for High-Resolution Audio, just as the artist intended.

    DSEE HX restores your music files

    DSEE HX restores your music files

    Go beyond CD quality. DSEE HX builds on our proprietary DSEE technology, upscaling compressed audio files to a level that’s closer to High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the subtleties of the original recording that are lost during the compression process, DSEE HX delivers a rich, studio-quality audio experience for all your music.

    Expandable storage for endless playlists

    Expandable storage for endless playlists

    In addition to the NW-ZX100 series’ expansive 128GB memory, there’s also room for a microSD card, so you can take even the biggest music collections on the go.

    Improved battery life for longer listening

    Improved battery life for longer listening

    Never run out of power when you’re on the move. The NW-ZX100 holds enough charge for up to 70 hours of MP3 playback, or up to 45 hours of FLAC playback, so you don’t have to worry about finding a charger when you’re out and about.

    Multiple music formats

    Multiple music formats

    The NW-ZX100 series supports High-Resolution Audio formats as well as popular formats like MP3, WAV, AIFF, WMA, AAC, HE-ACC, FLAC, and ALAC.

    NFC One-touch for instant connectivity

    NFC One-touch for instant connectivity

    Near Field Communication (NFC) technology makes complex set-up sequences a thing of the past. Simply touch selected NFC-enabled devices to the on-body N-mark for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming music via Bluetooth®. No NFC? No problem. You can still manually connect to Bluetooth using your device’s settings menu.

    Highest quality Bluetooth streaming: LDAC

    Highest quality Bluetooth streaming: LDAC

    Developed by Sony, the Bluetooth LDAC codec takes your music streaming to a new level. It supports up to three times greater bitrate than typical Bluetooth streaming. 96kHz sampling rates and more efficient coding for CD-quality wireless sound.
