Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 251-666-0448 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

Made for High-Resolution Audio 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.

Native DSD 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.

S-Master HX 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 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.

Incorporating the 0.17" Balanced Standard Plug Enjoy clear, precise, dynamic sound with balanced audio. With a new 0.17" balanced standard plug, noise picked up from the wire to the amplifier is reduced. The result: superior sound, delivered with clarity.

Aluminum frame An aluminum alloy frame provides a highly rigid case that's resistive to electrical noise and other interference for stable, high-quality sound.

Oxygen-free copper cable A low-resistance oxygen-free copper cable offers low distortion and superior channel separation.

MELF resistors Reduce noise and minimize distortion in the audio signal path with MELF type resistors.

Streamlined power The newly developed FT CAP (high polymer capacitor) works to regulate power flow, optimizing it for instant, clean power when needed.

Perfect for everyday life The NW-WM1A is designed to fit in with your everyday lifestyle. With its compact size and lightweight build, it's easy to grab when you're in need of some high quality music.

An intuitive touch The high quality 4.0" (10 cm) screen is touch-sensitive so you can access functions simply by touching the icon.

Handy buttons The play/pause, music selection and volume buttons on the side panel are shaped and positioned for easy operation.

Play different file formats The NW-WM1A Walkman® supports a wide range of file types, including DSD, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, MP3, WMA, AAC, and HE-AAC.

Long battery life Enjoy up to 30 hours of continuous High-Resolution Audio playback (FLAC 96 kHz/24 bit) and 33 hours of MP3 (128 kbps).

Built-in and expandable memory Never run out of music with 128 GB of built-in memory, and add more with a Micro SD memory card slot.

Bluetooth streaming at its best 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.

aptX HD audio and MQA files compatible after firmware update The NW-WM1A supports Qualcomm® aptX HD audio and MQA files after firmware update for another way to enjoy your music.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
