Connoisseurs do not need to imagine the Sony Walkman. This series of players has been on the market for a long time. It became legendary long before the era of the smartphone. And now the line has begun a second life.

Love high-quality sound? Here's some good news for you. The Walkman NW-A105 model is coming to Russia. It will be in a few days. Externally, it resembles the "cassette player" Walkman TPS-L2 (1979).

For the said interface should be thanked. The cassette is not real. It only appears on the display when playing music. Such a retro stylization.

In fact, the Walkman NW-A105 is a modern device. It runs Android. Also the gadget has a 3.6-inch touch screen.

"Stuffing" is impressive. The device offers a cool digital amplifier. We are talking about S-Master HX with LDAC codec. Compatibility with expensive wireless headphones is claimed.

In addition, you can count on PCM and DSD. The DSEE HX technology deserves special mention. It improves the sound of the compressed formats. As for the frequency range, it ranges from 20 Hz to 40,000 Hz. No surprises there.

The Walkman NW-A105 is encased in a milled aluminum case. A version with 16GB of memory is priced at 22,990 rubles. Sales will start on February 7.
