Sony is going to release high-resolution audio stereo system MAP-S1 for about ¥65,000 on April 19. New speaker SS-HW1 which is designed to be used with MAP-S1 will be released for about ¥56,000 on the same day.

The audio stereo system MAP-S1 is able to play high-resolution audio including DSD audio (2.8MHz). It is compatible with DLNA and AirPlay, and it has Wi-Fi built-in.

Sony designed the HDR-AZ1 with a focus on downsizing and developed it on the assumption that users will control it through the live-view remote control "RM-LVR2V", which comes with a remote control kit (HDR-AZ1VR). So, the HDR-AZ1's control functions were simplified and it has only the Start/Stop button for recording and On/Off for Wi-Fi connection.

Last month, Sony gave notice that they will release the Evangelion model of the portable audio player WALKMAN, and finally they just unveiled the details of the model.

The special collaboration model is made based on Android WALKMAN F series "NW-F887 (64GB)" which supports high-resolution audio. It is scheduled to be out on April 24.

3 models are ready to be released:

We have seen the LSPX-W1S in action, proper up-close and personal-like, and it was a bit beyond impressive. It's much more than frivolous luxury, however - Sony's insanity is methodical!
