High-Resolution Audio delivers premium sound
From source to speaker, Sony has united an array of technologies for the ultimate audio experience. For High-Resolution Audio files, the digital amp and specialized tweeters reproduce every subtlety, so you hear each note as the artist intended. For MP3s, digital processing software upscales compressed music to restore lost detail.
S-Master HX Digital Amp for pure sound quality
The built-in S-Master HX Digital Amplifier helps bring out the best of your High-Resolution Audio. It achieves this by reducing the noise levels usually experienced in the high frequency ranges, so you can enjoy clear, sharp sound.
DSEE HX technology upgrades compressed files
DSEE HX (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) technology upgrades the quality of your compressed music files. When an original music source is compressed, you lose the high frequency elements of your music. DSEE HX restores this to produce high quality sound that"s closer to the original CD recording.
