128 GB built-in flash memory allows for up to 2700 Hi-Res tracks (LPCM 1411kbps @ 4 minutes/song). When your collection starts to burst at the seams, you can easily expand memory capacity further using the included microSD slot (up to 256 GB ).
- Your Hi-Res favorite tracks, even in DSD!
The NWZ-ZX2 broadly supports the playback of many Hi-Res digital music file formats including: MP3, WMA, WMA lossless, WAV, FLAC, L-PCM, AAC, ALAC, AIFF, DSF, and DSDIFF. For optimized playback, a user-selectable DSD filter allows for refined playback, either a slow roll-off ideal for expressive music and a warmer sound experience or sharp roll-off tailored for energetic music and a fuller sound benefitting from a sharp attack.
- Long battery life
A built-in, high-capacity, lithium ion battery coupled with power supply-line enhancements delivers enhanced battery life: up to 60 hours of audio playback (MP3)/ up to 33 hours (FLAC 192/24-bit) per charge.2
- Audio streaming maximized
Enjoy simplified, high-resolution Bluetooth® audio streaming with Sony LDAC™ codec and NFC (Near Field Communication) technology.3 Simply align your compatible devices via the NFC logos to activate or deactivate pairing and let the magic happen.
- Google™ Android™
Not just a familiar face, Google™ Android™ and dual-band WiFi® affords the ZX2 access to: Gmail, Google Search, Google+, Google Play Books, Music, Movies & TV, Games and the Google Play Store.
- Dual band WiFi®
Built-in dual-band Wi-Fi® support also allows users to access and share music stored on other DLNA enabled devices.
- Vivid, touchscreen display
The 4.0" FWVGA TRILUMINOS™ LCD touchscreen display with OptiContrast panel delivers outstandingly vivid album artwork, photos, and even videos.
- Optimized chassis and controls
A gold-plated, copper chassis delivers high-rigidity with low impedance, the ideal base from which to deliver superb audio reproduction. Side-mounted controls allow for natural play/pause and track navigation when stowed in a jacket pocket or even when using the supplied leather carrying case.
A low-impedance, thick film, copper foil Printed Circuit Board Assembly optimized for superior power delivery, renders an ultra-low noise-floor for enhanced spatial response and tonality-a listening experience that sounds and feels real.
- Sophisticated sound
S-Master® HX digital amplification circuitry with enhanced power supply and high-power output stage delivers sophisticated and transparent audio reproduction.
- Dual clock oscillators
As is the case with our line of Hi-Res headphone DAC/Amplifiers, dual dedicated clock circuits allow for switching between 44.1kHz (44.1/88.2/176.4kHz, CD/DSD) and 48kHz (48/96/192kHz), depending on music file sampling frequency. The benefit of reducing DA conversion timing inaccuracies is enhanced sound stage integrity and audio response, for superior noise and distortion-free audio reproduction.
- DSEE HX
DSEE HX offers natural sound with a spacious feel by revitalizing the audio signal and also restoring the high frequency sounds stripped by the audio compression process to near hi-resolution sound quality.
- Drag, drop and go
With a Walkman® player, you are never tied to just one music service. Easily drag and drop files from either iTunes® or Windows® Media and enjoy.
- USB Digital output
When used with a compatible device, such as a PHA-3 Headphone DAC/Amplifier, pairing the two using the USB Digital output can result in lossless interconnectivity and a purer listening experience.
