Sony NW-WM1ZM2 Signature Series Walkman
Settle for nothing less than immersive excellence with the newest addition to Sony’s Signature Series. The WM1ZM2 sets a new benchmark in pure sound quality and listening sophistication. Crafted with fine materials and meticulous attention to detail, and offering the ease of downloading and streaming music, this is audio at its most indulgent.
Purer materials for a purer sound
Despite oxygen-free copper (OFC) being a notoriously difficult machine process, the WM1ZM2 features a gold-plated OFC chassis-just like its predecessor. This time though, OFC purity has been upgraded to 99.99%, offering even greater benefits in terms of audio quality and high rigidity. Bass notes are clear and powerful, the atmosphere is more expansive and mid to high-range sounds linger beautifully.
Faithful sound reproduction
S-MasterTM HX digital amp technology, independently developed for Walkman®, is compatible with Native DSD format and supports balanced and high power output. It reduces distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies, for rich and full-bodied sound, further enhanced by new high-quality lead-free solder.
An even stronger power supply
Taking inspiration from the DMP-Z1, our flagship digital music player, the WM1ZM2 features an even stronger power supply than its predecessor, both in the analog block and digital block.
Large solid high polymer capacitor
Adapted as battery assist for the amplifier block, the newly developed large solid high polymer capacitor offers large capacitance and low resistance. Able to instantaneously supply large amounts of power, it can accurately output signals by preventing sudden falls in voltage. This contributes to a clear, powerful, and accurate bass sound, as well as clear vocals.
FT CAP3 (High polymer capacitor)
Custom-made for Sony and tuned by Sony engineers, FT CAP3 is adopted for all bypass capacitors in the audio block power supply. Drawing on know-how cultivated in high-end home audio development, it has helped to improve sound expression and create a smoother sound, with a wider sound space, more transparency, and tighter bass.
OFC Milled block
An OFC milled block covers the digital block, helping both to strengthen digital ground and improve noise shielding from digital block elements such as the application processor and memory devices. The result is a clearer sound that appears to rise up from silence.
High polymer capacitors
The high polymer capacitors are used to strengthen the power supply of the amp block for unbalanced output, enhancing low-range reproduction performance for a more expansive listening experience.
High-quality film capacitors deliver voltage with a linear response across frequencies, resulting in reduced distortion and noise.
Replacing the conventional laminated capacitor, winding inductors in the digital block power supply contribute to a pure sound.
The wiring material from the amp base to the balanced headphone jack has been upgraded to thick KIMBER KABLE®, just like on the flagship DMP-Z1 music player. This helps to shut out external noise, transmit high-quality audio signals, and achieve powerful and smooth
The Walkman® features a balanced single plug, designed for the Ø4.4mm balanced connection cable. This separates left and right sound signals, while minimizing signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration.
Every note as the artist intended.
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/96kHz and beyond), High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording.
11.2 MHz DSD Native/PCM 384kHz
Supreme quality with 11.2 MHz DSD native using balanced headphones and PCM 384KHz/32-bit support.
Hi-Res Audio Wireless
Enjoy High-Resolution Audio quality without wires thanks to LDAC, our premium wireless codec.
The Walkman includes MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files.
Distinctive rear section
The OFC frame with machine carved aluminum rear contributes to the high-quality sound and creates a premium feel. In addition, the distinctive rear section – thicker and more pronounced than its predecessor – reflects the larger, superior quality audio parts that are housed within.
Echoes of analog
Every element of the WM1ZM2 is dedicated to the pure joy of music listening, right down to the volume UI, which recalls classic analog design.
Wi-Fi lets you stream and download even more music
Supported by Android™ and compatible with Wi-Fi, the WM1ZM2 gives you even more freedom to enjoy music, listen to your favorite streaming and music apps on your Walkman or connect to a PC to download tracks and playlists from your music collection.
Large 5.0” display
Smooth and responsive, the large 5.0” touchscreen display has been enlarged from its predecessor’s 4.0” display and upgraded to HD.
Walkman® Home Screen
With the Walkman® Home Screen you can customize the home display to suit your needs.
USB Type-C® port
A USB Type-C port, compatible with USB 3.2 Gen1 offers fast music file transfer and easy connectivity with a range of devices.
