Signature Series

One Signature Sound

Elevating the high-resolution sound experience from one you listen to, to one you can feel.


Made for High-Resolution Audio

Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher than CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you. The NW-WM1A Walkman® also supports the very latest 384 kHz/32-bit rate and DSD Native Playback.


Native DSD

The NW-WM1A supports native DSD audio files, which are sourced early in the production process. This means they retain all the authentic detail of the original recording.


S-Master HX

The new S-Master HX digital amp technology, independently developed for Walkman®, cuts distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies for rich, full bodied sound.


DSEE HX

DSEE HX upscaling technology uses an algorithm to analyze your music and replace any lost information, so that the quality is almost high-resolution level. Choose from 5 modes to bring out the best in your music.


Incorporating the 0.17" Balanced Standard Connection

Enjoy clear, precise, dynamic sound with balanced audio. With a new 0.17" balanced standard plug, noise picked up from the wire to the amplifier is reduced. The result: superior sound, delivered with clarity.


Premium design for optimal sound quality

Built with an aluminum frame and tailored electrical components, the NW-WM1A Walkman® is designed for high quality, powerful sound.


Aluminum frame

An aluminum alloy frame provides a highly rigid case that's resistive to electrical noise and other interference for stable, high-quality sound.


Oxygen-free copper cable

A low-resistance oxygen-free copper cable offers low distortion and superior channel separation.


MELF resistors

Reduce noise and minimize distortion in the audio signal path with MELF type resistors.


Streamlined power

The newly developed FT CAP (high polymer capacitor) works to regulate power flow, optimizing it for instant, clean power when needed.


DC Phase Linearizer

Pure sound translation

Our DC Phase Linearizer works to effectively replicate a wide variety of sonic signatures. It applies digital-signal processing to match the phase characteristics of various types of analog amplifier to deliver a purer, more analog-like sound. Choose from six phase character settings.


Preserving the feeling

Capturing every note and nuance with DSEE HX

Take the concert feeling home and experience your music as the artist intended, in near High-Resolution Audio quality. DSEE HX upscaling technology uses an algorithm to analyse your music and replace any lost information, so that the quality is almost high-resolution level. Choose from 4 additional modes to the standard to bring out the best in your music.


An intuitive touch

The high quality 4.0" (10 cm) screen is touch-sensitive so you can access functions simply by touching the icon.


Handy buttons

The play/pause, music selection and volume buttons on the side panel are shaped and positioned for easy operation.


Enjoy more music with advanced technology

Play different file formats

The NW-WM1A Walkman® supports a wide range of file types.


Long battery life
