Sony's new Walkman is only for rich audiophiles

At CES, Sony announced the next player in it's Walkman lineup, the ZX2. And, it costs 1200$.

Sony already has a high-resolution player in its Walkman line but, not wanting to sit out the growing audiophile craze, the company revealed another model here at CES: the Walkman ZX2. Inside the player's aluminum alloy frame, there's an S-Master HX digital amp to keep things sounding clear, and DSEE HX tech that upscales those regular ol' tunes (like those being streamed) for better sound quality. In terms of playback, the ZX2 handles media up to 192kHz/24-bit and MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC, AIFF, WAV and ALAC including DSD files. There's 128GB of internal memory that's sure to fill up, but a microSD slot provides extra space. It'll connect to WiFi for streaming and downloads, and the battery is said to last 60 hours on a charge.

Connectivity options on the Walkman NWZ-ZX2 include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and Micro-USB. The ZX2 runs on Android 4.2.2 JellyBean and Sony justified using it due to it's long term stability and of course, you can download apps from the Google Play Store. Other features include ClearAudio+, Clear Bass, DSEE HX (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine), S-Master HX digital amplifier and VPT.
