High-end components

Faithful sound reproduction

S-Master™ HX digital amp technology, independently developed for Walkman®, is compatible with the Native DSD format, and supports balanced and high power output. It reduces distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies, for rich and full-bodied sound, further enhanced by new high quality sound lead-free solder.

Rigid aluminium milled frame for improved sound quality

The premium aluminium milled frame provides superior rigidity for low impedance and clear, stable sound and solid bass.

Film capacitator

High quality film capacitors deliver voltage with a linear response across frequencies, resulting in reduced distortion and noise.

Fine Sound Resistor

The surface mounted Fine Sound Resistor ensures even, effective distribution of power to the circuit components, for consistent sound quality.

High quality solder containing gold

The exceptional conductivity of gold ensures absolute minimum signal loss. For clearer sound and vocals, a premium, audio-grade lead-free solder with a small amount of gold connects the circuit of the NW-A300 Series to the battery.

Reflow solder containing gold

NW-A300 Series uses reflow solder containing gold, and it features extensively across the circuit board surface, so the overall effect is significant, including improved sound localization and wider sound space.

Optimised circuit board layout

The circuit board layout has been optimised to ensure sound quality is unaffected by digital interface.
