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.

Pure sound, premium parts Discover the functional beauty of oxygen-free copper. The NW-WM1Z is fully encased in a high-grade gold-plated oxygen-free copper chassis. Widely used in instrument manufacturing, the copper lends the player its unique natural, acoustic sound. Its conductivity and raw strength reinforce the Walkman® with unrivalled audio performance.

Advanced cable design Made using advanced braiding techniques, the four wire braided cables engineered with KIMBER KABLE® are handcrafted to seamlessly handle high power and deliver ultimate sound performance.

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

Reliable circuitry The surface mounted Fine Sound Register ensures even, effective distribution of power to the circuit components, for consistent sound quality.

A revolution in authentic sound quality Building upon a wealth of experience in digital amp technology, our engineers developed the NW-WM1Z with detailed acoustics and natural sound qualities, resulting in a unique and truly pleasurable listening experience.

Delivering every note as the artist intended with 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. High-resolution audio files usually use a high sampling frequency of 96 kHz or 192 kHz at 24-bit.

Faithful sound reproduction The new S-Master HX digital amp technology, independently developed for Walkman®, has evolved to be compatible with Native DSD, Balanced and high output power formats. It reduces distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies for rich, full-bodied sound.

Losing nothing in translation The NW-WM1Z supports native DSD (Direct Stream Digital) audio files, which are sourced early in the production process. This means they retain all the authentic detail of the original recording.

The new standard of power The Walkman® features a balanced single plug, designed for the new 0.17" balanced connection cable. This separates left and right sound signals, while minimizing signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration.

Preserving the feeling Capturing every note and nuance with DSEE HX. Take the concert feeling home and experience your music as the artist intended, in near High-Resolution Audio quality. 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.

Pure sound translation with DC Phase Linearizer Our DC Phase Linearizer works to effectively replicate a wide variety of sonic signatures. It applies digital-signal processing to match the phase characteristics of various types of analog amplifier to deliver a purer, more analog-like sound. Choose from six phase character settings.

Up to 30 hours of High-Resolution Audio playback Keep the music playing as long as you are, with up to 30 hours of non-stop High-Resolution Audio playback (FLAC 96 kHz/24 bit) and 33 hours MP3 (128 kbps).

Enjoy 256 GB of built-in memory The NW-WM1Z packs in 256 GB of built-in file memory, so you never run out of music.

Responsive touchscreen The fully responsive 4" (10.2 cm) touchscreen and classic interface design have been tailored to meet the needs of the most passionate audiophiles.

Intuitive side key Simple, near instinctive side-key control enables you to control your music with ease.

Expandable memory Never run out of space for your music library and store files in the highest quality with the Micro SD slot.

Discover better Bluetooth with LDAC LDAC is a new audio technology from Sony that allows you to enjoy high quality wireless audio via Bluetooth. With 3x the data transmitted, LDAC provides an enhanced wireless listening experience for all your music.

Multiple music formats The NW-WM1Z supports High-Resolution Audio formats, DSD Native (11.2 MHz) as well as popular formats like MP3, WAV, AIFF, WMA, AAC, HE-ACC, FLAC, and ALAC.

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.
