The Japanese company Sony today unveiled the new Walkman NW-ZX500, which runs an operating system Android with support for access to Wi-Fi networks and is capable of streaming audio from different sources.
The NW-ZX500 features a balanced connection and 4.4mm jack, an S-master HX digital amplifier, and supports DSD Native (11.2 MHz) and PCM (384 kHz / 32-bit) playback. Support for DSEE HX technology brings music sound quality closer to high definition. The DSEE HX processor works even when streaming music. In addition, thanks to the LDAC codec, the NW-ZX500 supports High-Resolution Audio wirelessly.
The high quality sound of the NW-ZX500 is achieved through a premium design. The chassis consists of an aluminum frame and copper block for clear and powerful sound, while the newly developed FTCAP (High Polymer Capacitor) and an electric double layer capacitor work together to deliver a high level of bass performance. Audio components, including high quality solder and audio resistor, keep vocals and sounds clear.
Thanks to Android and Wi-Fi, owners of this gadget will be able to listen to millions of songs by streaming them or downloading them using their favorite applications to their player, or by connecting it to a PC and opening their music collection on a computer.
