  • High-Resolution Audio for uncompromising sound
    Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher-than-CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you
  • S-Master HX™ delivers High-Resolution Audio in maximum quality
    Optimized for High-Resolution Audio, the S-Master HX™ amplifier reduces distortion and noise, allowing you to enjoy all the subtleties in your music
  • DSD playback
    Experience the natural sound and intense detail of DSD audio formats. This is the preferred recording format of many top producers and engineers, and you can enjoy it using the NW-A40 Series' high-quality PCM conversion
  • New solder maximizes clarity
    The precision-engineered components of the NW-A40 Series include high-quality, lead-free solder on the circuit board. This improved solder is also used on the S-master HX™ (CXD-3778GF) chip, resulting in a more efficient electronic connection. Every time you press play, you can enjoy purer audio playback with enhanced vocal clarity
  • Restore all your compressed files
    The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) upscales compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC, and WMA) and brings them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the high-range sound lost in compression, DSEE HX™ reproduces your digital music files with rich, natural sound
  • New circuit board for pure, solid bass
    The optimized circuit board of the NW-A40 Series improves electricity flow. The layout from the battery to the audio block minimizes the power loop, making the power supply stable. The result is clearer sound and pure, solid bass that comes through in every track
  • Ambient Sound Mode keeps you aware
    Listening to music but still want to hear the outside world? When you're using the compatible IER-NW500N headphones, select Ambient Sound Mode and the NW-A40 Series will let in external sounds to keep you aware of your surroundings
  • Digital noise cancellation for fewer distractions
    When used with compatible IER-NW500N headphones, the NW-A40 Series' digital noise cancelltion reduces the ambient noise you would normally hear from your surroundings. Microphones built into the headphones work with the digital noise cancellation engine to cut out unwanted sound
  • LDAC™: for the transmission of High-Resolution Audio content
    Enjoy your music in higher-than-CD quality with LDAC™ wireless audio transmission. LDAC uses a conventional BLUETOOTH® connection, but transfers at a maximum data transfer rate up to 990 kbps—approximately three times that of other audio profiles. The result is enhanced wireless listening that's much closer to the artist's intention
