Here’s the spec sheet for the new Sony Walkman:
So of course it can play music, but what else?
Sony may have developed an audiophile’s dream portable music player.
The ZX300 offers Hi-Res Audio with S-Master HX digital amplifier, newly soldered with high quality sound lead-free solder balls. Thanks to the capability of both 11.2MHz DSD native playback and 384kHz/32bit PCM playback, you can truly enjoy your music as the artist intended.
The ZX300 also offers balanced standard connection with fully-discrete left and right channels for less noise and clearer sound.
For the premium listening experience, the ZX300 incorporates an aluminium chassis for less resistance value. The FTCAP (Conductive Polymer Aluminium Solid Capacitors) and the new film capacitor are also incorporated for more transparent vocals and solid bass notes.
After the success of the WM-1 Series, high quality sound tuning is key with this Walkman, OFC cables have been used for wiring the internal amplifier to the headphone jack which results in powerful sound quality by low resistance value and signal transmission without loss.
For powerful bass and less noise, the double layer capacitor is the main battery power source in this Walkman. Two crystal oscillators are also utilised to deliver you high quality audio with improved SN ratio and large volume of music data.
Separating audio and power/digital block on the circuit board, the SN ratio has been improved by minimising noise. The high quality audio resistor has been used as the LC filter for the headphone output to reduce magnetic distortion which results in expansive, high transparent sound quality.
You can also enjoy listening to music from your PC with the USB-DAC function which allows you to stream sound directly from your existing devices through your Walkman® for a better sound experience. The ZX300 also supports MQA™ files as well for another way to enjoy Hi-Res Audio.
With a music dedicated touchscreen interface, every function you need is at your fingertips and just one tap means you can change the volume of your music at any time. Its slim and light weight design incorporates a staggering 30 hours of battery life and 64GB memory built in, plus support for external memory – this Walkman lets you listen to music all day long, ideal for a long journey.
You can simply connect your wireless headphones via BLUETOOTH technology or NFC. For compatible codec with BLUETOOTH connectivity, it features not only LDAC, the ZX300 will also be compatible with Qualcomm apt HD audio.
The matte finish on the body of this Walkman is a stylish match for any audiophile and with a unified matte glass screen for smooth use.
The Walkman NW-ZX300 will be available in Singapore from Mid-November 2017 at a recommended retail price of S$799.
