A50 Walkman® A Series
Feel as if the artist is performing right in front of you with higher-than-CD quality High-Resolution Audio, which faithfully reproduces even the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound.
Experience the natural sound and intense detail of DSD audio formats, thanks to the NW-A50 Series' high-quality PCM conversion.
Bring even heavily-compressed audio formats back to a full fidelity experience with our advanced DSEE HX processor, which uses AI to accurately analyse song type, instrumentation and musical genres.
Enjoy all the subtleties in your music with S-Master HX™ which delivers High-Resolution Audio in maximum quality, with reduced distortion and noise.
The premium aluminium milled frame provides superior rigidity for low impedance and clear, stable sound and solid bass.
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-A50 to the battery.
The onboard plate and contact springs of the NW-A50 that connect the circuit board to the aluminium milled frame are both plated with gold. The results are powerful bass and a clear mid-range.
LDAC™ uses a conventional BLUETOOTH® connection, but transfers at a maximum data transfer rate of up to 990kbps – approximately three times that of other audio profiles. The result is enhanced wireless listening that's much closer to the artist's intention. Full aptX™ HD audio compatibility is available with a firmware update.
Use your NW-A50 Series as a USB DAC (Digital-Analogue Converter) by pairing it with a PC or Mac computer. When connected and activated using the supplied USB cable, the NW-A50 Series replaces your computer’s regular sound processing with its own, highly-tuned, hardware processing.
Stream music through the NW-A50 via Bluetooth® and a smartphone connection and give all your music an NW-A50 boost. Favourite tracks will benefit from S-Master HX and DSEE HX upscaling, as well as Vinyl Processor and equaliser.
Perfect for commuting or when you want to enjoy your music all day, when fully charged you can enjoy up to 45 hours of music playback.
Expand the already large memory of your NW-A50 with a microSD card – pop one in the slot to enjoy endless playlists and even the biggest music collections on the go.
The NW-A50 Series is compatible with playing and decoding MQA™ files, so you can play even more lossless-quality music.
Get lost again in the richness of your favourite albums with the Vinyl Processor. Enjoy subtle reproduction of the low-frequency resonance, tone-arm resistance and surface noise.
