    Sony Black Hi-Res Music Player With 500GB HDD, Model HAPS1B

    Discover your passion for music with this Sony Hi-Res music player. Store your songs and tunes on the 500GB hard drive in high-resolution audio formats so that you get high-quality audio every time, or stream music directly from your smartphone or laptop via the integrated Wi-Fi technology. This also allows it to create a multi-room setup so that you can easily play music throughout your house. USB ports ensure easy expansion via external hard drives, letting you add even more music locally, and the large user interface makes it simple to browse through your collection.

    Analog FIR filters in this Sony music player reduce high-frequency noise when converting digital files to analog ones, and the Digital Sound Enhancement Engine creates natural-sounding audio even after extensive compression to upscale your current sound files. Thanks to the large power block capacitor, this 500GB music player can handle heavy-duty music playing for outstanding tonality even during high bandwidth utilization. The rigid chassis that supports this Sony Hi-Res music player has 3mm-thick aluminum to ensure it withstands plenty of use.


    • Hi-Res Music Playback
      The HAP-S1/B 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
    • 500GB Hard Drive for music playback
      Store personal music of all formats for local music playback on the 500GB 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
    • 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-S1/B 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-S1/B. 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-S1/B
    • Large Power Source Block Capacitor
      This acoustically tuned, custom block capacitor features not only improved electrolytic solution and electrode foil magnification, but also superior case form, sleeve material and length. Only Sony utilizes this component, which is optimally tuned with chemical capacitor length and sleeve cut
    • Left-right separated, large bandwidth power amp
      This AB-class analog amp utilizes an EBT (emitter balance transistor) with a cutoff frequency of over 300MHz for the final transistor. The amp device features minimal phase variation up to the high range and excellent transient response. Its twin mono format with separate left and right channels eliminates left-right sound interference and ensures clear, high-quality sound reproduction. The resilient high range reproduces sound with rich musicality and a high degree of faithfulness
    • High-Rigidity Chassis structure
      Its all-in-one compact size and sturdy 3mm-thick solid aluminum design extends from front panel to top panel
    • One-point ground structure
      Concentrating audio signal control points into a single point eliminates fluctuation of left- and right-channel, and contributes to dynamic sound
    • Power Source Transformer
      A low iron-loss type EI core transformer curbs leakage flux, utilizing core material, varnish, and vacuum impregnation for superior sound quality. As a result, excellent spatial representation and rich resonant timbre is produced. is achieved as a result. The size (core size 45 x 66) is large for this class, and thick winding wire helps achieve rich, resonant timbre
