Audio Active Tipped To Get New High Res Sony Walkman In OZ

The $1,200 US pricing for the new Walkman NW-ZX2 could see this device sold by Melbourne based Audio Active who recently picked up the Sony High Res Audio range.  

The new Walkman is a high-resolution portable music player that is an upgrade to last years’ ZX1, capable of playing 24-bit 192KHz FLAC, Linear PCM, AIFF, Apple Lossless, and WAV files, as well as more standard MP3 and WMA content.

Using the S-Master HX full digital amplifier to keep sound quality high without noise and distortion, the ZX2 also uses Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX), ClearAudio+, and Clear Bass. While it can be used with wireless headphones over Bluetooth with NFC pairing, including LDAC codec support, it also includes dual-band Wi-Fi with DNLA support for playback over a network, and USB audio connections. 


The Android 4.2 device includes a four-inch 854×480 Triluminos display for playback control and navigation, 128GB of storage expandable by microSD, and a battery that charges for 4.5 hours but provides up to 60 hours of MP3 playback, or 33 hours of Hi-Res Audio. 

Sony will be shipping the Walkman NW-ZX2 in mid 2015.
