Sony NW-WM1AM2 Walkman Digital Music Player
Lose yourself in high quality sound that’s even more dynamic and transparent, with a richer, more expansive sound field. Coupled with the ease of downloading and streaming music, it takes your listening enjoyment to a whole new level.
An aluminum alloy frame provides a highly rigid case that’s resistive to electrical noise and other interference for stable, high-quality sound.
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.
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 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 the 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.
Oxygen-free copper cable
A low-resistance oxygen-free copper (OFC) cable offers low distortion and superior channel separation.
Two compact low-phase-noise crystal oscillators ensure precision clock stability at sampling rate multiples of 44.1kHz and 48kHz. The crystal electrode piece is formed with gold vapor deposition for enhanced electric characteristics and improved instrumental separation. This helps remove a veil and reduce noise to realize clear, open sound reproduction.
Fine sound register
The surface-mounted Fine Sound Register ensures even, effective distribution of power to the circuit components, for consistent sound quality.
Newly developed reflow solder containing gold
This is the first time Sony has used reflow solder containing gold, and it features extensively across the circuit board surface – so the overall effect is significant, including improved sound localization and wider sound space.
The Walkman® features a balanced single plug, designed for the 4.4mm balanced connection cable. This separates left and right sound signals while minimizing signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration. It features supreme quality with 11.2 MHz DSD native using balanced headphones and PCM 384KHz/32-bit support. 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 machine-carved aluminum rear frame offers high rigidity, contributing to clear, transparent sound reproduction. The inclusion of larger audio parts to enhance sound quality is evident in the distinctive rear section, which is noticeably thicker than its predecessor.
The volume UI on the WM1AM2 echoes classic analog design – a nice little detail to further enhance your listening enjoyment.
Wi-Fi lets you stream and download even more music
Supported by Android™ and compatible with Wi-Fi, the WM1AM2 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.
Long Battery Life
Immerse yourself in your music with up to 40 hours of non-stop 96kHz FLAC High-Resolution Audio playback.
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.
With 128GB integrated memory and an SD card slot, the WM1AM2 lets you take even the biggest music collections on the go.
So immersive. So real.
Immerse yourself in sound all around you. As real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real. The WM1AM2 lets you enjoy 360 Reality Audio.
