Sony Electronics introduces two new premium music players
Engineered to immerse the listener in sublime, nuanced sound NW-WM1ZM2 has been fine-tuned through years of audio mastery and crafted from the very finest materials. This new addition sets new standards for Sony’s award-winning Signature series, offering an exquisite listening experience in an ultra-premium design.
That NW-WM1AM2 allows music lovers to fully immerse themselves in high quality audio with a richer, smoother and more expansive sound field compared to its predecessor.
Both music players allow the user to download and stream endless catalogs of music with Wi-Fi compatibility, taking listening enjoyment to the next level.
Exceptional sound starts with exceptional components
Throughout the history of Sony’s premium music players, audio mastery has been achieved through a combination of meticulous assembly of exceptional components. That NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2 are products of this philosophy.
Purer materials for a purer sound
That NW-WM1ZM2 has a 99.99% purity (4N) gold-plated oxygen-free copper (OFC) case. This realizes a stronger digital bottom and higher rigidity, enabling a clear, expansive sound, allowing the listener to experience each instrument as if it were performing live.
That NW-WM1AM2 uses an aluminum alloy frame that provides an extremely rigid enclosure that resists electrical noise and other interference and produces stable, high-quality sound.
Revel in authentic sound reproduction
Utilizing S-Master™ HX digital amplifier technology, independently developed for Walkman®, the NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2 deliver an amazingly faithful sound reproduction. The fully digital amplifier also produces a rich and full-bodied sound with the help of high-quality lead-free solder.
Be inspired by the groundbreaking DMP-Z1Both music players have an even stronger power supply than their predecessors, both in the analogue and in the digital block.
That NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2 have upgraded fine-tuned capacitors – various FT CAP3 capacitors (high polymer capacitors) and a large solid high polymer capacitor that offers large capacitance and low resistance. An OFC milled block covering the digital block allows both music players to deliver a sound that seems to rise out of silence.
Perfect signal integrity
In order to achieve a powerful and smooth sound quality, Sony has chosen a thick one Kimber Cable® running from the amplifier base to the balanced headphone jack NW-WM1ZM2similar to the renowned DMP-Z1. This carefully selected component helps transmit high-quality audio signals, leaving only the music.
That NW-WM1AM2 uses low-impedance OFC cable, which offers low distortion and excellent channel separation.
In order to realize the evolutionary sound of both music players, a double clock and a fine sound register were precisely placed in each Walkman. For the first time, Sony has started using a gold-containing reflow solder, the effect of which is significant in the overall improved sound localization and wider soundstage.
Get the most out of music, no matter the source
That NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2 Both integrate a DSD remastering engine, where PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) audio is resampled into a 11.2MHz DSD (Direct Stream Digital), offering even more ways to enjoy music.
With the NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2 Listeners can also breathe more life into their music by upscaling compressed music files in real time with DSEE Ultimate™. This evolving algorithm now offers even more benefits for CD-quality (16-bit 44.1/48kHz) lossless audio. By restoring acoustic subtleties and dynamic range, the user experiences a richer, more complete listening experience.

Both Walkmans are also compatible with Balanced Connection and High-Resolution Audio, allowing listeners to experience their favorite tracks exactly as the artist intended.
