Sony NW-A306 Walkman specifications and features
First of all, the Sony NW-A306 is designed with audio enthusiasts in mind, which is why it features Sony’s S-Master HX technology for clear audio and adds the ability to play DSD files.
Sony has also integrated a specialized engine called DSEE Ultimate to upscale compressed music files in real time for better sound reproduction.
Furthermore, Sony claims that it can provide a battery life of 36 hours playback on 44.1 kHz FLAC, up to 32 hours on 96 kHz FLAC high-resolution audio, or up to 26 hours-when stream music from apps. There’s no option for cellular connectivity, but of course there’s Wi-Fi for downloading and streaming music.
For the construction, Sony has used high-quality materials such as aluminum in the construction of the NW-A306. The unit also features gold-soldered joints, aimed at producing clear and stable sound with improved precision and a wider sound field.
