Sony’s New Gold-plated Walkman Will Cost You $3,200

Sony’s new Walkman NW-WM1Z high-res audio player costs three times as much as last year’s high-end Walkman release. This time out, the audiophile player features “detailed acoustics and natural sound qualities,” thanks to its new S-Master HX digital amp. The circuitry is said to reduce distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies. This amp boasts full compatibility with DSD Native, Balanced, and other high output power formats. Oh, did I mention that it’s gold plated?

The gold-plated chassis is actually cut from oxygen-free copper instead of aluminum to minimize electronic interference. Aside from that Midas touch, it sports a 4-inch touchscreen, 256GB of onboard storage and an SD card slot.

Other features include DSEE HX upscaling technology, a DC Phase Linearizer for digital-sound processing, an Android-based OS, and a 4.4mm balanced TRRRS plug, which Sony hopes will be the new headphone standard. It comes with a battery that will deliver up to 30 hours of high-res audio playback per charge. It is priced at $3,199.99(USD). At that price, I don’t think they will get many takers.
