Sony NW-ZX300/S Walkman with High-Resolution Music Player
Sony NW-ZX300/S Walkman with High-Resolution Music Player, offered here in a silver finish. This Walkman supports playback of DSD, AAC, WMA, FLAC, ALAC, and MP3 audio files. It features 64GB of internal flash memory and supports microSD cards. The NW-ZX300 also boasts a 3.1″ TFT color LCD touchscreen with an 800 x 480 resolution. Its built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 30 hours of continuous audio playback on a full 5.5-hour charge.
This Walkman utilizes several audiophile-friendly technologies, including support for 1-bit DSD playback up to 11.2 MHz, as well as DSEE HX upscaling. Sony’s wireless codec, LDAC, delivers a higher bit rate than standard Bluetooth, so you can enjoy an enhanced listening experience with a compatible pair of wireless headphones. You can also pair the Walkman with other compatible devices over conventional Bluetooth with NFC.
Optimized for High-Resolution Audio, the S-Master HX amplifier reduces distortion and noise, allowing you to enjoy all the subtleties in your music.
True DSD Playback and Support
Enjoy sound quality higher than PCM, thanks to the Direct Stream Digital audio codec, designed specifically for high-resolution audio. This 1-bit format can deliver a more natural and detailed sound. The result is clear and crisp.
4.4mm Balanced Connection
In addition to the standard 3.5mm connection, the NW-ZX300 features a 4.4mm balanced plug, designed for Sony’s balanced connection cable. This supplies compatible headphones with fully discrete left and right channels, unlike conventional headphones that share a ground wire. The result is better external noise suppression and improved stereo imaging, as well as more headroom for powerful sound delivery.
You can use this device as a USB DAC (digital-analog converter) by pairing it with a Mac or Windows PC. When connected and activated using the supplied USB cable, the unit replaces your computer’s regular sound processing with its own hardware.
Long Battery Life
The NW-ZX300/S holds enough charge for up to 30 hours of 128 kbps MP3 playback, or up to 26 hours of 96 kHz/32-bit FLAC High-Resolution Audio playback, so you don’t have to worry about finding a charger when you’re out and about.
