The Sony ZX300 Walkman Hi-Res Audio Player Revealed!

The Sony ZX300 Walkman Hi-Res Audio Player Revealed!

To pair with their new 1000X series noise cancelling headphones, Sony introduced the new Sony ZX300 Walkman Hi-Res Audio player. What’s new about it? Let’s find out!

 

Introducing The Sony ZX300 Walkman

The new Sony ZX300 Walkman offers Hi-Res Audio with S-Master HX digital amplifier, newly soldered with high quality sound lead-free solder balls. Thanks to the capability of both 11.2 MHz DSD native playback and 384 kHz / 32-bit PCM playback, you can enjoy your music as the artist intended. The Sony ZX300 also offers balanced standard connection with fully-discrete left and right channels for less noise and clearer sound.

Premium Listening Experience

The Sony ZX300 incorporates an aluminium chassis for less resistance, as well as FTCAP (Conductive Polymer Aluminium Solid Capacitors) and the new film capacitor for more transparent vocals and solid bass notes. OFC cables have been used for wiring the internal amplifier to the headphone jack which results in powerful sound quality by low resistance value and signal transmission without loss.

For powerful bass and less noise, the double layer capacitor is the main battery power source in this Walkman. Two crystal oscillators are also utilised to deliver you high quality audio with improved SN ratio and large volume of music data.

Separating audio and power/digital block on the circuit board, the SN ratio has been improved by minimising noise. The high quality audio resistor has been used as the LC filter for the headphone output to reduce magnetic distortion which results in expansive, high transparent sound quality.

You can also enjoy listening to music from your PC with the USB-DAC function which allows you to stream sound directly from your existing devices through this Walkman for a better sound experience. The ZX300 also supports MQA files as well for another way to enjoy Hi-Res Audio.

Premium Construction & Features

Its aluminium chassis has a matte finish, with a matte glass screen that feels premium. It has up to 30 hours of battery life and 64 GB memory built in, plus support for an microSD card.

You can connect your wireless headphones via Bluetooth or NFC. It not only supports LDAC, the Sony ZX300 will also be compatible with Qualcomm aptX HD audio.
