Sony - Hi-Res flagship Walkman NW-ZX2
Sony is going to start selling the new flagship model of its Hi-Res Walkman ZX series (NW-ZX2) on February 14.
NW-ZX2 is equipped with 128GB built-in memory and a 4.0-inch FWVGA panel (854x480), and its frame is made of a copper-aluminum alloy chassis. In addition to the 128GB built-in memory, there is a microSD card slot so that NW-ZX2 is capable of saving about 1,700 songs in Hi-Res audio format by using a 128GB micro SDXC memory card.
The improved battery allows it to play continuously for up to 33 hours, which is two times longer than the previous NW-ZX1 model.
The NW-ZX2 supports MP3/WMA/ATRAC/FLAC/LinearPCM/AAC/HE-AAC/Apple Lossless/AIFF/DSD formats. Especially for the DSD format, it is compatible with DSD64 (2.8MHz) as well as DSD128 (5.6MHz).
The new Walkman has good capability but does not come cheap. Its price is set for ¥120,000 (about US$1,000).
