At the annual consumer electronics exhibition IFA 2017, held in Berlin from September 1 to 6 (analogous to the American CES in Las Vegas), Sony introduced the new NW-ZX300 Walkman digital media player - a continuation of the legendary Walkman series. Continuation after a couple of decades - as you know, the previous version still played analog tape cassettes.
The novelty is aimed at discerning music lovers who are used to dealing with high quality recordings, even while on the go. The weight of the device is miniature and is only 157 grams with dimensions of 57.7 x 120.4 x 14.9 mm. The battery powers the player for 30 hours.
The NW-ZX300 has a traditional set of connectors literally "for all occasions." There is a USB connector, a WM port, Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX and NFC support, a headphone jack and a slot for a microSD memory card. Sony has equipped the player with its own proprietary OS and 64GB memory.
To reduce the signal-to-noise ratio, the power and audio modules are separated, and the optional USB-DAC function allows you to listen to digital content from your computer.
The start of sales of the NW-ZX300 is scheduled for next month at a price of about $ 700.
