What is it?
The NW-WM1A is a premium Walkman® designed for optimal sound quality. Feel every note and nuance with High-Resolution Audio and hear the difference in your music with balanced sound, anywhere you go. Built with an aluminum frame and tailored electrical components, the NW-WM1A Walkman® is designed for high quality, powerful sound. An aluminum alloy frame provides a highly rigid case that’s resistive to electrical noise and other interference for stable, high-quality sound. The play/pause, music selection and volume buttons on the side panel are shaped and positioned for easy operation.
Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher than CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you. The NW-WM1A Walkman® also supports the very latest 384 kHz/32-bit rate and DSD Native Playback.
Enjoy clear, precise, dynamic sound with balanced audio. With a new ø0.17″ balanced standard plug, noise picked up from the wire to the amplifier is reduced. The result: superior sound, delivered with clarity.
Never run out of music with 128 GB of built-in memory, and add more with a Micro SD memory card slot. The NW-WM1A Walkman® supports a wide range of file types, including DSD, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, MP3, WMA, AAC, and HE-AAC. Enjoy up to 30 hours of continuous High-Resolution Audio playback (FLAC 96 kHz/24 bit) and 33 hours of MP3 (128 kbps).
Enjoy high quality music streaming thanks to LDAC, our premium wireless codec. With 3x the bit rate of standard Bluetooth, you can enjoy a superior listening experience for all your music. The NW-WM1A supports Qualcomm® aptX™ HD audio and MQA files after firmware update for another way to enjoy your music.
How does it work?
The NW-WM1A supports native DSD audio files, which are sourced early in the production process. This means they retain all the authentic detail of the original recording. The new S-Master™ HX digital amp technology, independently developed for Walkman®, cuts distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies for rich, full bodied sound. DSEE HX upscaling technology uses an algorithm to analyze your music and replace any lost information, so that the quality is almost high-resolution level. Choose from 5 modes to bring out the best in your music.
The newly developed FT CAP (high polymer capacitor) works to regulate power flow, optimizing it for instant, clean power when needed. A low-resistance oxygen-free copper cable offers low distortion and superior channel separation. Reduce noise and minimize distortion in the audio signal path with MELF type resistors.
