At IFA 2015 Sony announced a selection of three new Walkman devices, continuing its commitment to high-res audio. These devices are the NW-A25N, NW-AN7HN and the NW-ZX100N.
The NW-A25HN and NW-A27HN Walkmans will be available in October and will be the successor to the A15, featuring an enhanced version of Sony’s S-Master HX full digital amplifier, and DSEE HX technology to upscale audio tracks to a high-resolution.
Both can play FLAC, ALAC, MP3, AAC, HE-AAC, WMA, Linear PCM and AIFF files, and come with a 2.2 inch TFT colour LCD display that has a pixel resolution of 320 x 240, with NFC and FM radios built-in.
They will be available in black, blue, pink, red and yellow in 16GB and 64GB options with a microSD card slot for expansion.
The NW-ZX100N is the higher end model, featuring 128GB of storage, with a microSD card slot, 3 inch TFT LCD display that has a 400 x 240 pixel resolution, and compatibility with the same file types with NFC on-board.
It also supports DSD and Bluetooth 3.0.
