  • Walkman redefined
    Packing audiophile performance into a pocket-sized player, the A17 Hi-Res Audio Digital Music Player sets an exciting new benchmark in sound and style. And with 64 GB of built-in memory1, microSD memory card slot, and up to 50-hours of music playback on a single charge2, you've got studio quality sound in your pocket wherever you go.
  • Treat your ears!
    Capable of handling a variety of digital audio formats, ranging from standard CD-ripped tunes, to 192kHz/24-bit high-resolution audio, the A17 delivers sound that is up to 6-times the resolution when compared to a standard CD, providing support MP3, WMA, WMA lossless, AAC, FLAC, AIFF, WAV, and ALAC, for a sublime audio experience.
  • Powerful Sound
    An aluminum die-cast frame and redesigned circuitry form the core of the NWZ-A17SLV. Borrowing a few tricks from our accomplished ES home audio lineup, the low-impedance circuit board using Sony high-purity lead-free solder ensures efficient, spacious, and natural sound.
  • Two features driving quality sound
    S-Master® HX digital amplification, uniquely developed for high resolution audio playback, delivers faithful, detailedwide-frequency audio reproduction. DSEE HX works in two ways to delivers natural, spacious sound. First, it restores the high frequency signals stripped by the audio compression process. Second, it can accurately expand audio signal bit-depth, in real-time, to near hi-resolution sound quality.
  • Exceptional battery life
    A built-in lithium ion battery paired with thick, low-resistance cable ensures that power is on-tap for demanding musical passages while also providing up to 50 hours of audio playback (MP3)/ up to 30 hours (Hi-Res) per charge.2
  • Bluetooth Audio Streaming
    Communications (NFC) technology.3 And with built-in AAC and aptX® codec support, you will enjoy maximized signal quality when streaming your music wirelessly.
  • Room for your tunes!
    With 64 GB of internal memory1, the A17 has enough storage for about 200 high-resolution tracks*, but thanks to the built-in memory card slot, serious users with large music collections can add an additional 128GB, bringing the total memory capacity up to 192 GB1, or enough storage for about 600 high-resolution tracks*. * - 192 kHz/24-bit FLAC files
  • Drag and Drop
    With a Walkman® player, you are never tied to just one music service. Just drag and drop files from iTunes® for Mac® or Windows® and enjoy. Multi-format playback also lets you play MP3, WMA, AAC or L-PCM music files; now that's freedom.
  • Easily Navigate Your Tracks
    While the 2.25" QVGA anti-reflective TFT LCD display reveals album artwork, photos, and even videos in rich, clear brilliance, the multi-function directional keys makes searching for the right song a breeze. Spend more time listening than fumbling through your music.
