More stunning realism than you ever heard

Music enriched

DSEE HX™ upscales your existing music to near high-resolution sound quality, and makes you feel as if you are really there at the recording studio or concert.

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.

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.
