A17 High-Resolution Walkman®

Sony NWZA17SLV

Features

  • From source to speaker, Sony has brought together an array of technologies for the ultimate audio experience. For High-Resolution Audio files, the digital amp and specialized tweeters reproduce every subtlety, so you hear each note as the artist intended. For MP3s, digital processing software upscales compressed music to restore lost detail.
  • The built-in S-Master HX Digital Amplifier helps bring out the best of your High-Resolution Audio. It does this by reducing the noise usually heard in the high-frequency range, so you can enjoy clear, sharp sound.
  • DSEE HX (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) technology upgrades the quality of your compressed music files. When an original music source is compressed, you lose the high-frequency elements in the music. DSEE HX restores this to produce high quality sound that's closer to the original CD recording.
  • Along with its premium sound, the A Series High-Resolution Walkman® features a premium look. Its compact, light design means it tucks easily into a pocket or purse, while its unique diamond-shaped control panel provides a sophisticated accent.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
