Premium Parts

The team at Sony packed the largest high performance components possible into its gold-plated, oxygen-free copper chassis that still fits in your pocket.

Wizardry that Actually Works

Many times we see circuitry and features that actually degrade sound instead of improving them. Not so with the NW-WM1Z. The DS-EEHX really did improve the quality of lower res files, which is super impressive.

  • Gold plated, oxygen-free copper chassis design with a leather section embedded in the back to keep it from sliding.
  • 32bit 384kHz PCM bit-to-bit playback and Native DSD support (up to 11.2MHz).
  • Supports balanced (4.4mm) and unbalanced (6.3mm, 3.5mm) connections. Also features a proprietary balanced connection that separates left and right signals, minimizing transmission loss and sound deterioration. The balanced in one connection minimizes cable clutter. Engineered with 4-wire braided Kimber Kable
  • Includes buttons for power, volume, and transport control, with a single “hold" switch that will lock out all the buttons and touch panel.
  • 256 GB built-in memory and micro SD memory card slot.
  • Up to 33-hours of High-Resolution music playback.
  • 4.0" touchscreen with simple, intuitive navigation and side-key control.
  • Enjoy near hi-res quality wireless sound via Bluetooth with LDAC™.
  • Make compressed audio sound brilliant by restoring lost audio fidelity with DSEE HX™.
  • Large low-phase noise quartz oscillator precision clock reduces timing jitter.
