Restore all your compressed files
The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) upscales compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC, and WMA) and brings them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the high-range sound lost in compression, DSEE HX™ produces your digital music files in rich, natural sound.

New solder maximizes clarity
The precision-engineered components of the NW-A40 Series include high-quality, lead-free solder on the circuit board. This improved solder is also used on the S-Master HX™ (CXD-3778GF) chip, resulting in a more efficient electronic connection. Every time you press play, you can enjoy purer audio playback with enhanced vocal clarity.
Experience the natural sound and intense detail of DSD audio formats. This is the preferred recording format of many top producers and engineers, and you can enjoy it using the NW-A40 Series' high-quality PCM conversion.
LDAC™: for the transmission of High-Resolution Audio content
Enjoy your music in higher-than-CD quality with LDAC™ wireless audio transmission. LDAC uses a conventional BLUETOOTH® connection, but transfers at a maximum data transfer rate up to 990 kbps—approximately three times that of other audio profiles. The result is enhanced wireless listening that's much closer to the artist's intention.
Listen for longer with up to 45 hours' battery life
