Sony ZX2 High-Resolution Walkman
Sony’s Walkman moniker is back, but it’s not the same yellow-and-grey cassette player that you’re all too familiar with. Instead, Sony’s ZX2 High-Resolution Walkman takes a stab at pleasing the audiophiles amongst us. This capable device features 128GB of built-in memory, a 4-inch touch-sensitive display, Sony’s S-Master HX digital amp, a high stiffness, low contact resistance gold-plated copper chassis, and attention to minuscule details that make all the difference when it comes to uncompromising sound. It’ll handle your DSD, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, ALAC, MP3 (upgraded via DSEE HX), or WMA tracks at resolutions of up to 192 kHz/24 bit for 33 hours per charge but, given its price, the ZX2 should probably not be your grab-and-go option before hopping on the tube or going for a jog.
