Outline

Pick up a High-Resolution Walkman® NW-ZX2, and you'll see that we didn't try to conceal the amplifier block inside. Instead, while the rest of the body seems compressed, you'll notice a slight protrusion on the back where the amp is. It's a distinctive shape and a reminder of what it takes to produce superior sound. Other signs of design supporting audio performance are the curved sides of the aluminum frame. The shot-blasted finish may remind you of high resolution. And when you set the player down, you'll see how the cradle holds it high enough to easily insert larger, high-quality plugs.
