The Way The Artists Truly Intended
Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, while advanced technologies such as digital upscaling help create the ultimate listening experience.
Premium music, portable convenience
High-Resolution Audio continues the Sony tradition
Enjoy music with a richness and fidelity to the original that has previously been unavailable in portable formats. The two features below work together to deliver this ultimate quality.
S-Master™ HX technology explained
S-Master™ HX is a built-in digital amplifier that extends the music’s frequency range and bit-rate and reduces the risk of distortion over this wider range.
Extended frequency range
As a built-in digital amp, S-Master™ HX supports High-Resolution Audio bitrates (24bit+) and extended frequencies (22kHz and up) beyond standard CD range while reducing the risk of distortion.
Noise suppression at wider ranges
In the NWZ-A Series, S-Master™ HX can suppress noise at wider frequency ranges (over 20KHz). Thanks to optimal noise shaping, you can enjoy clearer sound at any listening level.
Hear the difference
Music as it should be
Sony’s DSEE HX™ technology injects more life into your music, upscaling compressed files to near High-Resolution Audio quality. Restoring the subtleties of the original recording simulates the sounds of live performance.
All of your music; hours of listening
Supplement the NWZ-A Series’ built-in storage with a microSDXC memory card. And, when it’s time to enjoy all that stored music, you get extended play for day and night with a long-lasting battery.
