Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 630-879-1286 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

High-Resolution Audio delivers premium sound From source to speaker, Sony has brought together 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 does this by reducing the noise usually heard in the high-frequency range, 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 in the music. DSEE HX restores this to produce high quality sound that's closer to the original CD recording.

Compact and light design Along with its premium sound, the A Series High-Resolution Walkman® features a premium look. Its compact, light design means it tucks easily into a pocket or purse, while its unique diamond-shaped control panel provides a sophisticated accent.

Built-in and expandable memory Models come with either 16 GB or 64 GB storage built in; boost this with a microSDXC memory card for infinitely expandable playlists.

Made to listen: ClearAudio+ Make your listening as lifelike as possible. ClearAudio+ fine-tunes sound for an immersive, emotionally enriching experience that seems to envelope you. Hear music and lyrics with greater clarity and nuance for an experience that rivals that of a live performance.

Featuring aptX® technology for wireless convenience aptX® technology powers the pure, wireless sound behind many of the world's finest smartphones, speakers, soundbars, headphones, and tablets. Now music lovers can enjoy the rich listening experience that only aptX® can deliver: convenient wireless sound that doesn't compromise on audio quality.

One-touch listening to play instant music NFC (Near Field Communication) technology removes the need for wired connections and complex setup sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled smartphone or other device* to the on-body N-mark and start your music. No NFC" No problem. You can also pair the devices manually in Bluetooth® settings. *See compatible devices

Multiple music formats Whether listening to new files in the premium High-Resolution Audio format or older songs as standard MP3's, the A Series Walkman® supports these popular formats for ease and convenience: MP3, WAV, AIFF, WMA, AAC, HE-ACC, FLAC, ALAC.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
