Sony HAPS1 overview

  • 1Description

The black HAP-S1/B from Sony is a high resolution music player system designed for home audio and featuring an integrated amplifier, 500GB of storage, and a high performance DAC. The high resolution audio player offers playback of a wide range of formats including, DSD, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, MP3, AAC, WMA, and ATRAC. The built-in Wi-Fi allows you to transfer music files wirelessly and enables the use of a free iOS or Android remote control app. The built-in 500 GB hard drive stores all your music files and the system is expandable via a USB port for connecting an additional hard drive. The 4.3" LCD display offers an onscreen guide and includes Gracenote compatibility complete with artist, album, song information and album artwork.

The HAP-S1/B can function as a DAC with digital input connections for optical and coaxial, while analog inputs are available via two stereo pairs of RCA inputs. Additionally, the unit offers an analog output via stereo RCA for connecting to other home audio component systems. The Class A/B amplifier features up to 40W per channel into 2 ohms with a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The HAP-S1/B ships with a power cord, remote control, two AAA batteries, and an Ethernet cable.

Hi-Res Music Playback
The HAP-S1/B can playback and decode the following file formats:

  • PCM (44.1 / 48 / 88.2 / 96 / 176.4 / 192 kHz, 16-/24-/32-bit)
  • DSD (2.8/5.6 MHz)
  • WAV
  • AIFF
  • FLAC
  • ALAC
  • ATRAC Advanced Lossless
  • MP3
  • AAC
  • WMA
500GB Hard Drive
Store music of all Hi-Res formats for local music playback on the 500GB hard drive. Storage space is expandable via USB external hard drives
Analog FIR Filters
This digital-to-analog converter effectively reduces high-frequency noise in DSD signals. It features independent right and left channels, with four analog FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters per channel producing a combined one-clock delay. FIR filters are ideal for D/A conversion of DSD signals
Digital Sound Enhancement Engine
Offers natural sound with a spacious feel by restoring high frequency sound and the tail shape of the waveform likely to be removed through the audio compression process
Wi-Fi Built-in
Newly designed built-in Wi-Fi increasing whole-house coverage and signal strength. HAP-S1/B is rigorously tested to ensure its Wi-Fi signal strength will work under the most extreme conditions.
HDD Audio Remote App for iOS and Android Phones and Tablets
A dedicated app to control your listening experience with the HAP-S1/B. Create playlists, search stored music and full track control
Expandable Storage via USB
Connect external hard drives to expand the players storage capabilities
Music Transfer Software
Compatible with both Windows and Mac computers, this simple music transfer software allows you to select your music folder and sync it with the HAP-S1/B
Large Power Source Block Capacitor
This acoustically tuned, custom block capacitor features not only improved electrolytic solution and electrode foil magnification, but also superior case form, sleeve material and length. This component is optimally tuned with chemical capacitor length and sleeve cut
Left-Right Separated, Large Bandwidth Power Amp
This Class-AB analog amp utilizes an EBT (emitter balance transistor) with a cutoff frequency of over 300 MHz for the final transistor. The amp device features minimal phase variation up to the high range and excellent transient response. Its twin mono format with separate left and right channels eliminates left-right sound interference and ensures clear, high-quality sound reproduction. The resilient high range reproduces sound with rich musicality and a high degree of faithfulness
High-Rigidity Chassis Structure
Its all-in-one compact size and sturdy 3mm-thick solid aluminum design extends from front panel to top panel
One-Point Ground Structure
Concentrating audio signal control points into a single point eliminates fluctuation of left- and right-channel, and contributes to dynamic sound
Power Source Transformer
A low iron-loss type EI core transformer curbs leakage flux, utilizing core material, varnish, and vacuum impregnation for superior sound quality. As a result, excellent spatial representation and rich resonant timbre is produced. The core size (45 x 66) is large for this class, and thick winding wire helps achieve rich, resonant timbre

    Sony HAPS1 reviews

    HAP-S1/B - High Resolution Music Player System (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new frontier I bought this unit last week from B&H after making extensive researches . It sounds amazing, and plays ALL HI RES formats. The transfer is slow, and if you are on a MAC you have to dig the transfer program from the internet, the links provided are not valid, but is easy to find it. I transferred a massive library, it took over 24 hours for the transfer and another 24 to sync the tracks with the SONY database for metadata and covers. If you can use a wired connection, the wi fi will take WAAYY to long. Be sure to use good wiring, otherwise you'll lose resolution, which is an oxymoron if you think about it. Before the transfer update the software, then you are ready. If you use the wired option, you'll have to enter the IP address manually in the prompt. The last number is on the unit, go in settings to get it, is probably between 100 and 200. Once the IP is in you can manually start the transfer, and afterward you can drag and drop more files as needed
