Listen to high-resolution audio on the go with the NWZ-A17SLV Walkman Digital Music Player from Sony. This music player can store 64GB of hi-res WAV, AIFF, ALAC, and FLAC files as well as other file formats, and its storage can be expanded to 192GB via the microSDXC slot. The NWZ-A17SLV is equipped with Bluetooth, allowing you to stream the player's music to Bluetooth-enabled headphones or audio systems. It can display photos and videos on its 2.2" TFT display, and the built-in battery provides up to 50 hours of audio playback.
This Walkman's S-Master HX digital amplifier is designed to faithfully reproduce wide-frequency audio, and the Digital Sound Enhancement Engine upscales lower-bitrate files to near hi-res quality. Loading music onto the Walkman is as easy as dragging and dropping from iTunes or other media management software, and the player can organize your music by beats per minute, letting you choose music that suits your mood. The NWZ-A17SLV features a die-cast aluminum frame and lead-free solder for efficient sound delivery.
Bluetooth with NFC
Connect your player to Bluetooth streaming devices like headphones and stereos and enjoy streaming tracks from your Walkman, no wires required. NFC technology makes pairing with an enabled device as easy as touching them together. Walkman supports the SBC and aptX Bluetooth audio codecs.
This Walkman features SensMe tone analysis software, which allows you to keep your music in tune with your mood. The software automatically groups your music into channels based on beats-per-minute (BPM) so you can select the right music for the moment.
The Walkman's S-Master HX digital amplifier is designed to faithfully reproduce wide-frequency audio, enhancing the sonic spectrum.
Digital Sound Enhancement Engine
DSEE HX is designed to offer natural sound with a spacious feel by revitalizing the audio signal and restoring the high-frequency sounds stripped by the audio compression process.
Engineered for Hi-Res Audio
The Walkman's low-impedance circuit board enhances signal integrity while the low-resistance battery connectivity provides more efficient transfer of current for a more accurately reproduced sound. Second, it can accurately expand audio signal bit-depth in real-time to near hi-resolution sound quality.
