Sony has introduced the new NW-ZX700 and NW-A300 series Walkman media players with Android 12 and music streaming support. Both series use AI-assisted DSEE Ultimate technology to faithfully restore the original audio quality that is often lost in the audio compression process.
With DSEE Ultimate, media players also deliver high-quality sound when playing via Bluetooth or when using streaming services. According to the company, the Walkman NW-ZX700 series uses the same high-quality components as the flagship WM1 model, including high-capacity FTCAP3 solid-state capacitors, an oxygen-free copper block case, large bobbins, and high-quality gold-fill solder.
Walkman NW-ZX700 series specifications include the high-performance S-Master HX digital amplifier, which reduces distortion and noise across virtually the entire frequency range, and the DSD remastering engine, capable of lossless PCM audio at 11.2MHz in DSD converts. As a result, the player guarantees rich surround sound with clear high frequencies and powerful bass.
The NW-ZX700 line includes a NW-ZX707 model with 64GB flash memory, 5-inch HD LCD (1280×720 dots), Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 5.0. On board is a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port, a slot for microSD memory cards.
The device offers sound reproduction in the frequency range of 20-40,000 Hz. The battery capacity is sufficient for offline operation for up to 22 hours. The dimensions of the NW-ZX707 player are 72.5 × 16.9 × 132.3 mm, weight – 227 g, body color – black.
Walkman NW-A300 series players are equipped with a 3.6-inch LCD display. The series includes two models: NW-A307 with 64GB flash memory and NW-A306 with 32GB flash drive. The players support the wireless data transmission protocols Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 5.0. The case measures 56.5 x 11.8 x 98.4 mm and weighs approximately 113 g. The Walkman NW-A300 is available in grey, blue and black.
The price of new products ranges from $250 to $700.
