Sony launches two models of music players for audiophiles with

Sony has announced the launch of two new premium models of music players – NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2, to satisfy even the most demanding audiophiles.

The NW-WM1AM2 model has been fine-tuned, based on years of experience and mastery in the audio field, being made of the best materials. This new model sets new standards for Sony’s award-winning Signature series, delivering an excellent listening experience in the highest quality design.

The NW-WM1AM2 allows users to be captivated by high-quality sound, with a richer, more fluid and expansive soundtrack compared to its predecessor. Both players offer the opportunity to download or play content from a range of music catalogs, thanks to Wi-Fi compatibility.

The NW-WM1ZM2 has a 99.99% (4N) purity of the housing made of gold-plated copper without oxygen. It offers a stronger digital base and greater rigidity, allowing the formation of a clear, expansive sound, so that each instrument can be heard just like in a live show.

The NW-WM1AM2 uses an aluminum alloy frame that supports a highly rigid housing that is resistant to electrical noise and other interference, outlining a stable, high-quality sound.

Using S-Master ™ HX digital amplification technology, developed independently for the Walkman®, the NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2 provide accurate sound reproduction. The all-digital amplifier then creates a rich, full sound with high-quality, lead-free components.

Inspired by the revolutionary DMP-Z1 model, both music players provide even more power than previous models, both in analog and digital mode.

Specially designed for Sony and adjusted by Sony engineers, the FT CAP3 is built into all the bypass capacitors in the audio block’s power supply. Based on state-of-the-art audio solutions, it has helped to create a finer sound with a wider sound space, more transparency and stronger bass. Adopted as an amplifier block assist system, the new high-density capacitor offers high capacity and low resistance. Because it can supply a large amount of energy instantly, it can accurately play signals, preventing sudden voltage drops. He contributes to a clear and strong bass and clear vocal elements.

The wiring material from the base of the amplifier to the balanced headphone jack has been changed to thick KIMBER KABLE®, like the iconic DMP-Z1 music player. This eliminates external noise, transmits high quality audio signals, and delivers high sound quality. The NW-WM1AM2 uses a low-strength OFC cable, which reduces distortion and provides superior channel separation.

In order to obtain the revolutionary sound played by the two music players, a dual clock and the sound resistor were precisely positioned in the structure of each Walkman®.

This is the first time Sony has used gold-containing reflow solder in many places on the surface of the circuit board. The overall effect is considerable, including improved sound localization and a wider sound space.

The NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2 models integrate a DSD Remastering Engine PCM engine with which (Pulse Code Modulation) audio is resampled to 11.2 MHz DSD (Direct Stream Digital), which offers even more possibilities for users to enjoy their favorite music.

With NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2, they can also add more dynamism to their listening experiences by over-sampling compressed audio files in real time with DSEE Ultimate ™. This constantly evolving algorithm now offers even more benefits in terms of the quality of loseless audio CD music (44.1 / 48kHz on 16 bits). By reproducing acoustic subtleties and dynamic range, users can benefit from an even more complex listening experience.

Both Walkmans are compatible with the Balanced Connection feature and feature High-Resolution Audio, allowing users to experience their favorite songs just as the artist intended.

NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2 are now Wi-Fi compatible and run Android 11. Users can choose to listen to music using their favorite streaming and download service, or connect to a PC to download songs and playlists from their personal collections. ensuring high quality sound reproduction.

With a display larger than 5.0 ”(12.7cm), both music players now have a fluid and very sensitive touch panel in HD (High Definition), to optimize the user experience. You can also customize your Walkman® Home Screen to suit your individual needs, so that your Walkman® is unique.

And so that users can surround themselves with their favorite music wherever they are, Both premium models offer up to 40 hours of 96kHz FLAC 24-hour High-Resolution Audio playback. A USB Type-C port is implemented on both models, providing fast audio file transfer and easy connectivity with a wide range of devices.

The NW-WM1ZM2 also offers 256GB of built-in memory and a microSD card slot, while the NW-WM1AM2 has a capacity of 128GB of built-in memory and a microSD card slot, so users can take even the richest with them. music collections, wherever they go.
