THIS CHANGES THE WAY YOU HEAR MUSIC
You think you know your favorite songs? Oh you don’t. You really don’t.
SONY NW-ZX2 HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO WALKMAN Honestly – who buys a Walkman these days? And who would buy one for well over a thousand dollars? You’d be daft for even considering it. Well, no. Not really. That’s because most of the music coming out of our smartphones these days is flatter than airport tarmac. You might not notice it because you’ve gotten used to it, but the difference between normal audio files and High-Resolution Audio is like the difference between standard definition and 4K UHD video: once you see it, you can’t go back, once you hear it, you’ll be a convert.
That’s what the Sony NW-ZX2 HighResolution Audio Walkman does: It breathes life back to music. High-Resolution Audio files are richer in detail than compressed audio files like MP3 and AAC, and they’re even more detailed than CD quality music. You’ll be hearing beats, notes and melodies you’ve never noticed before, as if you were standing there right next to the performance.
It’s not just about the files; everything on the NW-ZX2, from software to hardware, has been designed with a laser-focus on aural excellence. Advanced technologies like the S-Master HX digital amp cuts distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies, ensuring the most true-to-life sound. DSEE HX adds new life to existing libraries, restoring lost details to MP3s and other compressed music files.
The highly rigid body is fully carved from aluminum alloy, eliminating the slightest vibrations for the purest sound quality. A LC (inductor-capacitor) filter for the headphone output has been integrated with a 3mm larger chip coil for low sound distortion and resistance, while MELF type resistors and film capacitors reduce noise. If you didn’t understand any of that, just realize how a ridiculous amount of thought has gone into the NW-ZX2 – even the solder has been carefully sourced for 99.99% purity, to achieve a more natural frequency balance.
Now let’s face it; the Sony NW-ZX2 isn’t for everybody. It’s a high-quality product made with premium materials and a high price tag. The NW-ZX2 is the wagyu of beef, the bespoke of suits, and the gold of elements. But for the discerning listener who wants only the best listening experience on the go, there really aren’t a lot of options, short of strapping a home entertainment system to your back. If you want to hear your music the way it was meant to be heard, the Sony NW-ZX2 is it.
The NW-ZX2 Walkman houses 128GB of built-in memory, and a microSDXC memory card slot lets you increase storage up to 128GB more. Enjoy up to 33 hours of High-Resolution Audio or 60 hours of MP3 playback on a single charge, on a screen using Sony’s latest TV display technologies optimized for mobile.
Seven OS-CONs (Organic Conductive Polymer Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor), an additional electrical double-layer capacitor and a large-capacity Li-ion battery help to deliver clear highs and deep lows with low noise. A stiff gold-plated copper chassis with a low contact resistance helps to produce powerful bass, while the rigid aluminum body reduces unwanted external vibrations. Two dedicated clock oscillations enable precisely synchronized demodulation for pure sound quality.
