Sony Silver Hi-Res Music Player With 1TB HDD, Model HAPZ1ES

Hear music as it was intended with the Hi-Res Audio player with 1 TB hard drive space , supports DSD and the full range of Hi-Res file formats plus Wi-Fi built in for easy transfer from your PC and a built-in 4-inch GUI for easy operation.

Features:

  • Hi-Res Music Playback
    The HAP-Z1ES can playback and decode the following file formats: DSD (DSF,DSDIFF), PCM (44.1k/ 48k/ 88.2k/ 96k/ 176.4k/ 192kHz·16/ 24/ 32bit) DSD(2.8/ 5.6MHz), WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, ATRAC Advanced Lossless, ATRAC, MP3, AAC, WMA music file playback
  • 1TB Hard Drive for music playback
    Store personal music of all formats for local music playback on the 1 terrabyte hard drive. Hard Drive is expandable via USB external hard drives
  • Analog FIR Filters
    This digital-to-analog converter effectively reduces high-frequency noise in DSD signals. It features independent right and left channels, with four analog FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters per channel producing a combined one-clock delay. FIR filters are ideal for D/A conversion of DSD signals
  • DSD re-mastering engine
    This ideal D/A conversion system combines a high-performance DSP and FPGA (field programmable gate array) to convert all signals to 128 FS DSD signals. It was designed based on know-how garnered from Sony’s direct 8-times oversampling and Extended SBM (Super Bit Mapping) technology for professional recorders
  • Digital Sound Enhancement Engine
    Offers natural sound with a spacious feel by restoring high frequency sound and the tail shape of the waveform likely to be removed through the audio compression process
  • WiFi Built-in
    Newly designed built-in Wi-Fi increasing whole-house coverage and signal strength. HAP-Z1ES is rigorously tested to ensure its Wi-Fi signal strength. This real world testing is to certify it will work under the most extreme conditions
  • “HDD Audio Remote” for iOS and Android phones and Tablets
    A dedicated app to control your listening experience with the HAP-Z1ES. Create playlists, search stored music and full track control
  • Expandable storage via USB
    Connect external hard drives to expand the players storage capabilities
  • Music transfer software
    Compatible with both Windows and Mac computers, this simple music transfer software allows you to select your music folder and sync it with the HAP-Z1ES
  • Low-phase noise liquid crystal oscillator
    The master clock acting as the performance standard for D/A conversion is vital to achieving high sound quality. In particular, sound quality is strongly impacted by phase noise. This unit employs a liquid crystal oscillator with extremely low phase noise to achieve an ultra-clear sound field
  • Two large-capacity separate twin transformers
    For Analog and Digital circuits, big and powerful transformers are used individually. The transformers are treated with impregnation in a vacuum. In a power block, analog circuit and digital circuit are separated strictly. It can remove some adverse effect from digital noise
  • The ES Frame and Beam chassis
    The FB chassis, composed of a frame and beams, has a long and cherished tradition in the Sony ES Series. It offers both high-precision mounting of parts and high rigidity, achieving a high-fidelity sound field carrying large amounts of information. Notably, the base is composed of two plates of differing thickness that provide sturdy support for the chassis. There are two additional base plates beneath the transformers as well, offering robust reinforcement that anchors the transformers firmly in place

        Comments about Sony Silver Hi-Res Music Player With 1TB HDD:

        This is a music server meaning you store your music on the built-in 1TB hard drive. There is no need to stream your music from a computer or use an external DAC. You can add hard drives via USB port ( I have another 3 TB drive attached to mine for a total of 4 TB of storage). The DAC is built-in. It can decode basically ANY format including DSD (DSF,DSDIFF), PCM (44.1k/ 48k/ 88.2k/ 96k/ 176.4k/ 192kHz·16/ 24/ 32bit) DSD(2.8/ 5.6MHz), WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, ATRAC Advanced Lossless, ATRAC, MP3, AAC, and WMA. The HAP-Z1ES includes a Remastering Engine which converts ALL its signals to DSD. You can turn the Remastering Engine off if you want. It does not have a digital output and even if it did you could not transfer DSD or the DSD signal from the Remastering Engine. Sony provides excellent software to transfer your music from your computer and then access it via IPad or tablet. Once your music is stored on the HAP-Z1ES the software will transfer via WiFi (wired or wireless) any music you add to your computer automatically if you want it to. Others may disagree, but in my opinion, its an excellent value at $1,999 based on its features, build quality and sound quality. Plus it has a 5 year parts and labor warranty.
