The Sony Walkman NW-WM1 series was announced back in February. Since then, Sony has been putting effort into making the lineup deliver all of the promises made in the announcement. 

Now, just like what you would typically expect from Sony, the brand did deliver all of its promises. Yes, the Sony Walkman NW-WM1 is finally here to set new heights in the high-resolution audio listening segment. 

Both the devices, the NW-WM1AM2 and the NW-WM1ZM2, target to satisfy all audiophiles’ demands. And the good news is that both do a proper job of achieving that.

Let’s first talk about the Sony Walkman NW-WM1ZM2. Sony designed it to immerse the users in nuanced and sublime sound. It has gone through tons of fine-tuning through the years. And all of the fine tunes aimed to achieve the highest level of audio mastery.

Now, when it comes to the build quality, you can learn all about it with your first glance of the Sony Walkman NW-WM1ZM2. Sony crafted it from the very best materials. 

And to make it achieve the “ultra-premium” tag, Sony has gold-plated the device. So, you will just be getting an exquisite listening experience. You will also be holding something that will look and feel high-end.

The gold plating has 99.99 percent purity, and the chassis is oxygen-free. According to Sony, this build will enhance the toughness of the digital ground, allowing clear, rigid, and expansive sound. Basically, it will make you feel like you are listening to the audio in a live performance.

But that does not mean that the NW-WM1AM2 does not have an excellent build quality. It is also one of the best materials. However, you will not find it in the gold-plating option. 

That seems to be reserved for the NW-WM1ZM2. Nonetheless, the good news is that the Sony Walkman NW-WM1AM2 does not lag behind in providing a high-end music-listening experience.

Compared to the predecessor, the Sony Walkman NW-WM1AM2 will make the audiophiles lose themselves in high-quality audio. By getting the device, you will sign up to enjoy audio files that will be smoother, richer, and more expensive than regular.

Furthermore, both the devices will enable the users to stream and download audio files from endless music catalogs. That will further enhance the user experience.

Now, if you are wondering about the internals, you will find the S-Master HX digital amp on both devices. This technology has been strictly designed for the Sony Walkman NW-WM1AM2 and NW-WM1ZM2.

And it is the magic behind the device’s capability to provide a stunningly authentic sound reproduction.

Additionally, NW-WM1AM2 utilizes a low-resistance OFC cable, offering excellent channel separation and low overall distortion. And for the NW-WM1ZM2, Sony decided to go with KIMER KABLE. It properly enhances the transmission of the signals, making it offer only the music in its pure form.

Slava is a man of mystery and no-one seems to know exactly where he is at any point in time. When he isn't enjoying writing about all things audio and technical he can be found researching his next project of interest. The man never rests.
