High-Resolution Audio for uncompromised sound

Savour every breath and subtle movement for a truly emotional experience.

Noise Cancelling headphones put your music centre-stage

The NW-A20 series includes exclusive Noise Cancelling headphones , so you can shut out the sounds of the world around you. Choose from a number of settings, depending on your environment, and immerse yourself deeper into the music as Noise Cancelling offsets ambient noise, for a more engaging listening experience.

DSEE HX restores your music files

Go beyond CD quality. DSEE HX builds on our proprietary DSEE technology, upscaling compressed audio files to a level that’s closer to High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the subtleties of the original recording that are lost during the compression process, DSEE HX delivers a rich, studio-quality audio experience for all your music.

S-Master HX digital amplifier: utmost sonic purity

Enjoy the best High-Resolution Audio experience with the S-Master HX digital amplifier. Using a simplified and fully digital signal path, S-Master HX reproduces the subtleties and wide frequency range of high resolution formats. Unlike conventional amplifiers, it maintains the digital signal until right before the speaker output, eliminating distortion — for High-Resolution Audio, just as the artist intended.
