High Resolution sound – the reference standard music replay

The highest quality sound, pure and simple, High Resolution Audio takes music to the next level. The difference between Hi-Res music and typical MP3/AAC compressed music files is immense. Hi-Res music even sounds better than CD, giving a smoother yet at the same time more detailed sound.

MQA playback
Compatible with Meridian's MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology, the Sony NWA-45 delivers Hi-Res audio to studio standards. Although studio master quality, the beauty of MQA is that files are small enough to easily stream and don't take up so much storage space. A wide range of High Resolution files are supported, including DSD, FLAC and WAV.

S-Master HX low distortion amp
Unlike smartphones, the Sony NWA-45 features a built-in amp that’s optimised purely for High-Resolution Audio. Designed and made with incredible attention to detail, even the solder has been refined to maximise clarity. High precision components mean you’ll hear more of the music, more of the time.

Enhanced sound from compressed music files with DSEE HX
DSEE HX (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) up-scales compressed digital music files to a level that's close to CD quality. Working with MP3, ACC, ATRAC and WMA files, DSEE HX restores high-level information previously lost in the compression process. The result is a more detailed, fluid and natural sound quality that's much closer to the original recording.

Top quality Bluetooth with LDAC
Connect up to your headphones or speaker system with Bluetooth, for a wireless connection. Using Sony’s LDAC technology the sound quality via Bluetooth is greatly enhanced. Transferring approximately three times more data than conventional Bluetooth, music has much more depth and body than usual.

16GB internal memory with support for 128GB total via microSD card
To get you going, the Sony NWA-45 has 16GB of built-in memory. Add an optional 128GB microSD card and the storage space greatly increases. 128GB is enough for around about 1250 High Resolution Audio files (24bit/96kHz, 4 minutes-long, 90MB).

Listen for longer with this dedicated player
With a battery life of up to 45 hours, the Sony NWA-45 easily outlasts most smartphones. At just 98 x 56 x 11 mm in size and 98 grammes in weight, it’s also a lot lighter and more compact.

If you love your music, then leave your smartphone for apps and calls and take the Sony NWA-A45 for Hi-Res audio nirvana.
