Sony NW A306 Walkman With Hi Res Audio Android Launched in India
After the launch of the Sony NW-ZX707 model a few weeks back, Sony has launched the NW-A306 Walkman model in India, soon after it was introduced in the global markets. It has a 3.6″ touch screen and tactile physical music controls, but weighs just 199 grams to carry it easily in your pocket.
It has S-Master HX digital amp technology, independently developed for Walkman, compatible with the native DSD format, 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 Walkman uses Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Ultimate (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) which upscales compressed digital music files in real-time. Restoring acoustic subtleties and dynamic range provides a deep and rich listening experience.
This has a premium aluminium milled frame for a superior rigidity for low impedance and clear, stable sound and solid bass. It applies a reflow soldering technique containing gold, whose effect is significant in the overall improved sound localization and wider sound space.
To realise both music players’ evolutionary sound, a dual clock, film capacitor and fine sound register have been precisely placed within the Walkman, said the company.
No plastic is used in the packaging material for the NW-A306, reflecting Sony’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its products and practices.
It promises a battery life of up to 36 hours of 44.1kHz FLAC playback, up to 32 hours of 96kHz FLAC high-resolution audio playback, or even up to 26 hours with the streaming service apps.
