Sony Signature Series High-Resolution Digital Music Player with Bluetooth

Enjoy the ultimate music experience anywhere with the Sony DMP-Z1, crafted to deliver unrivaled resolution and dynamics to the most demanding headphones and audiophiles' ears. Built-in battery power lets you revel in music as it was meant to be heard, wherever you are.

Portable Amplifier And Player In One

Sony DMP-Z1 High-Resolution Music Player comes with a built-in battery, plus a 4.4mm balanced connection jack, dual DACs, gilded volume control, and vibration-isolating aluminum chassis.

High-Resolution Audio

Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By capturing and reproducing digital audio at a higher rate than CD (24-bit/192 kHz and beyond), High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording and enjoy your music just as the artist intended.

DSD Native Playback

The DMP-Z1 supports files up to DSD native 11.2 MHz and PCM playback up to 384 kHz/32-bit, which means all the authentic detail of the original recording is retained.

0.17-Inch Balanced Connection Jack

Clear stereo separation and soundstaging are delivered by a 0.17-inch balanced headphone jack, which is compatible with a broad range of premium headphones. A standard 0.14-inch stereo jack is also available for unbalanced listening.

Gold-plated Volume Control

Enjoy stereo channel precision right to the headphone output with the custom-crafted passive-balanced volume potentiometer. Copper and gold-plated brass ensure absolute sonic purity across all dynamic levels.

Power Pure Audio Everywhere With Built-in Battery

Five battery cells drive both digital and analog amplification circuits independently for enhanced dynamics and reduced internal electromagnetic interference. By isolating the power delivery from conventional AC power supplies, you enjoy both a more open treble response and tighter bass delivery, without the harshness transmitted through AC line noise.

High-Quality Analog Amplifier

By incorporating an audiophile-grade, high-power headphone amplifier, the DMP-Z1 realizes 1,500 mW to drive even the most demanding headphones.

Dual DAC Stereo Architecture

Exceptional stereo imaging and an enhanced dynamic range are delivered through two independent AK4497EQ mono Digital-Analog Convertors (DACs), especially when matched with balanced headphone listening. An exceptionally low noise floor and native support for ultra-high-resolution audio formats ensure pristine analog audio translation.

Isolated Circuit Board Reduces Noise

To keep sound transparent and minimize distortion, the analog board is separated from the digital board on the H-shaped chassis. This cuts noise and realizes solid ground.

Rigid Frame Structure

To ensure minimal resonance and vibration are transmitted between the isolated boards, all circuit boards of the DMP-Z1 are mounted on a solid, frame-based chassis. This lessens external electrical or seismic interference so that each circuit can achieve optimal performance.

Gold-Plated Oxygen-Free Copper Plate

An OFC plate on the circuit board with gold plating (minimum purity 99.96) reduces contact resistance, giving a clearer audio quality. Gold plating also prevents oxidization and improves ground stability too.

New EDLC Capacitor For Improved Battery Performance

Five electric double-layer capacitors (EDLC) with large capacity and low ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) supply power from the batteries of the DMP-Z1. This means no sudden falls in voltage, and power is stably supplied to the DAC and amplifier.
