500GB Hard Drive for music playback

Store music of all Hi-Res formats for local music playback on the 500GB hard drive. Storage space is expandable via USB external hard drives.

Analog FIR Filters

This digital-to-analog converter effectively reduces high-frequency noise in DSD signals. It features independent right and left channels, with four analog FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters per channel producing a combined one-clock delay. FIR filters are ideal for D/A conversion of DSD signals.

Digital Sound Enhancement Engine

Offers natural sound with a spacious feel by restoring high frequency sound and the tail shape of the waveform likely to be removed through the audio compression process.

Large Power Source Block Capacitor

This acoustically tuned, custom block capacitor features not only improved electrolytic solution and electrode foil magnification, but also superior case form, sleeve material and length. Only Sony utilizes this component, which is optimally tuned with chemical capacitor length and sleeve cut.

Left-right separated, large bandwidth power amp

This AB-class analog amp utilizes an EBT (emitter balance transistor) with a cutoff frequency of over 300MHz for the final transistor. The amp device features minimal phase variation up to the high range and excellent transient response. Its twin mono format with separate left and right channels eliminates left-right sound interference and ensures clear, high-quality sound reproduction. The resilient high range reproduces sound with rich musicality and a high degree of faithfulness.

Wired or wireless file transfer.

Install the HAP Music Transfer software software on your PC (Compatible with both Windows® and Mac® computers) and transfer audio files to the HAP-Z1ES via your network and either wired Ethernet or wireless (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n) connection.

Dedicated software control.

Download the dedicated HDD Audio Remote App to control your HAP-S1 listening experience. Create playlists, search stored music and enjoy full track control. Compatible with both Android and iOs smartphones and tablets, you can easily select and play your music.
