Discipline: Product

Portable digital music player featuring a fully digital amp to unlock the potential of hi-res audio sources surpassing CD quality. In design, a quest for audio excellence inevitably led to several noticeable traits. The shape of the amp inside was carefully preserved and like the rounded body cut from a bar of aluminum, it attests to the player's performance. A substantial brass headphone jack holds headphones securely, maintaining audio quality. In all respects, a walkman to satisfy discerning audiophiles.
