S-Master HX digital amp technology, independently developed by Sony, 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.
The WM1AM2 boasts an even stronger power supply than its predecessor, not only in the analog section but also in the digital block which is physically separated.
High polymer capacitors and inductors headline the upgraded power supply that is the lifeblood of audio, for a signal path that has similarly been enhanced.
Various DSP tweaks can still be implemented in Sony's custom Walkman software, including DSD Remastering Engine, DSEE Ultimate upsampling and DC Phase Lineariser.
All that hardware working in tandem with software is best enjoyed via WM1AM2's 4.4mm balanced output, with up to 40 hours of battery life ensuring your tunes keep playing over the longest listening sessions.
