Product Details

Sony 128GB Black Walkman Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player, Model NW-ZX2BLK

Key Features:

  • 128GB Walkman® Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player
  • Compatible with DSD, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, ALAC, MP3, WMA and more
  • Enjoy up to 60-hours MP3, and 33-hours Hi-Res playback on a single charge
  • Bluetooth® with LDAC Hi-Fidelity wireless music streaming
  • Built-in, dual-band Wi-Fi, allows users to enjoy music stored on other DLNA enabled devices

Features:

  • Portable HiFi redefined…
    Beginning with high-efficiency, high-power circuit board, a sophisticated DAC, and a robust S-Master®HX digital amplifier we then layer the Google™ Android™ OS, a vivid TRILUMINOS™ touchscreen LCD and cap it off with a sleek and solid aluminum chassis. The end result is sweet, soothing, and natural sound that takes you back…
  • That’s quite a music collection…
    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.
  • High-efficiency…
    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.

I have at time of writing own a NW-ZX2 for about a week. My intent in buying the Walkman was to use it to play my rather large collection of Audible books rather then Hi-Res music. Given I own over a 1000 books I seem to have very few choices of devices now that iPod classic has been discontinued if I didn't want to stream my data over Cell. I have been running the Walkman with Shure 425. Charge holds me for about 14 hours with screen mostly off and on low brightness and the WiFi on about 20% of the time. I do own about 2.5 Gigs of mp3s and when I got the Walkman I went back to my CDs and re-ripped them into AIFF. Setup: Getting the Walkman itself setup was easy. I added Audible app and Plex but otherwise didn't install anything from the Google Play store. Getting the SD card in was a minor pain because the cover shows the direction to insert the card but it rotates you need to be sure the writing is the correct way up. Another limitation is that (this could be Jellybean) that you can mount the System Storage or the SD Card but not both at the same time. ->On the Walkman while connected bring down the top menu and select USB settings to flip between them. If this isn't a Jellybean limitation then I would hope Sony can fix this. Music - I put on the ClearAudio function and found I was really surprised at how clearly I felt the stereo on some of my tracks from Anime. The Music I had gone to the trouble to re-rip sounded markedly clearer. I could in ByeBye Birdie clearly hear both the male and female choirs in "Normal American Boy" . And playing with the sound stages - it is interesting after beening on a "Fruit Player" for about 10 years how much I still missed that from my Creative days. Audible works fine. The issues I have with it are more to do with their application rather then this hardware. Actually Device - I find the button placement a tad odd. I tend to hold the Walkman in my right hand and then try to go from there. The issue is that the buttons are designed to operated with the your left hand. Summary: It sounds much better then anything I have used in a long time. While it's heavier & larger then a "Fruit player" it fits in my pockets and feels worth something. I wish Sony would make Media Go a bit smart for syncing and make it so both the sd card and system storage where mountable at the same time. Give the price tag a wall charge would been a welcome addition to the package.

Sounded great with headphones. I was interested in using the USB to plug in a digital signal to car audio. USB is for data transfer only. If they changed that so I could USB to my car audio I would give it five stars. For know I give it 3. The Bluetooth was great at times and other times it wasn't good and I would have to delete device and re-connect it.

Best Hires Player on the market, one major fault

By 

from Toronto

Comments about Sony 128GB Black Walkman Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player:

This is without a doubt the best sounding hires audio player on the market. True DSD, outstanding hires PCM, analog volume control, built like a tank - beautiful build, and the now obsolete android version is no real issue. BUT - the firmware for the player - which sounds significantly better than the Onkyo hires player or others available on android - seriously needs to be upgraded to allow easy tagging of album art from containing files. This may be a minor issue, but I find it does seriously detract from the esthetic and functionality at the premium price the player warrants. The firmware needs to be upgraded soon.

Comments about Sony 128GB Black Walkman Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player:

My review of the new Walkman: Like - sound quality (wonderful!!!), storage (128GB base storage, 128GB SD card), looks (sleek), Android (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, apps). Areas to Improve - battery life (getting 4 hrs. per charge), user interface (takes time to create playlists when lots of songs stored), MediaGo (limited functionality related to creating music and playlists and not yet updated for new Walkman), design (heavy and runs hot). Overall - you should definitely buy one if you like high-quality music and lots of it!!!

Comments about Sony 128GB Black Walkman Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player:

I love my new Walkman. I have had it almost a month now and it easily swaps from my whole house via Sonos, to my headphones, to my car stereo via Bluetooth. The sound quality is simply amazing, and I spend a lot of time listening to old tracks and marveling at the detail (FLAC) that I can hear now. Thank you Sony for allowing me to finally get rid of that old MP3 player and all its limitations. Now integrate it with the PS4 and Nirvana will be achieved!

Sound A - Interface B

By 

from 44145

Comments about Sony 128GB Black Walkman Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player:

With high end headphones and high quality recordings, you won't be disappointed. So, no $50 earbuds/phones and no mp3's and this player will shine. Like an orchestra, one bad player makes the entire performance bad. One poor quality component in the chain between the player and your ears will degrade the sound. It's only going to be as good as the weakest link. The interface could use "Now Playing" on the lock screen. Currently you have to unlock and go into the device to see what is playing. This interface should be like any Apple or Android phone. If you do want to play mp3's from Google or other sources, I find they "stutter", that is they stop playing for a split second or "skip". No, not streaming the music, but already have it downloaded locally. I suspect a software issue. Less bloat wear on the device. Drum roll: More than 128GB system storage. This is a high rez player. File sizes are BIG. If you have CD quality (yes, not high rez) you can only fit about 150 CD's on the device. Now, lets talk DSD files for a moment - you may get about 50 albums on the device using DSD 2.8. In between CD and DSD 5.6 there are many resolutions which all take considerable disk space. 96K/24 - 192K/24 etc. This device should be sold either with 500GB system storage and use microSD cards or have the ability to use standard SD cards which can reach 512GB and sell it as it is today with 128GB! So, the base player with 126GB and if allowing the use of standard SD cards, you'd have a heck of a player that could carry most customers entire collections. Maybe the next revision will have increased storage. Currently my entire library is 550GB, so I can't take it all with me unless I buy about 4 128GB microSD cards and swap them in and out.

Comments about Sony 128GB Black Walkman Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player:

Very good music player, if you are into just having a DAP with high quality sound. I would have given 5 stars but Sony needs to do a little better. The screen display is terrible if you are outside on a sunny day, (cannot even see the screen ) For a product costing more than a thousand, you have to do better with the screen Sony.

Comments about Sony 128GB Black Walkman Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player:

It was love at firs sight with this device the first time I played with it a CES in January.. The Build is beautiful .. It feels like a classic Leica camera! I am an Apple evangelist .. But love SONY equipment,,, This unit is the only audio player you will use ...even if you have an iphone 6. It is very easy to load to from your Mac Book Pro .. I am currently using it along with the SONY MDR27 Headphones and SONY PH3 PreAmp.. It is Stellar!! A trip to the West Coast is dramatically improved with a first class seat and Sinatra at 192khz/24bit. Amazing! It's an expensive portable .. but if you love music.. THIS IS IT!!

How Can This Be?

Comments about Sony 128GB Black Walkman Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player:

I love the player.....but two complaints stop me from giving it five stars. There has to be an easier way to implement album art cover. Also a device with this price tag....shouldn't there be a sleep option? Hope this can be addressed in firm are updates!
