Sony Walkman Gold

DSC_0076-3.JPG

Sony's flagship Walkman, the NW-WM1Z, features many of the best technologies Sony has developed in all of their years developing mobile media players. Every part of this player is optimized, from the individual electronic components, the kimber kable made wiring, the incredible DACs built in; all adding up to fantastic sound quality in a mobile form factor. All of this tech is housed in a machined copper housing, which is then gold plated, giving the unit a substantial feel with amazing fit and finish. In our testing we have found this unit capable of powering even hard to drive headphones with great results. At $3199, the NW-WM1Z comes in at the top of Sony's mobile players, a premium price that is echoed in its construction and sound quality.

Naim Uniti Atom

The Naim Uniti Atom is the smallest of Naim’s new family of all-in-one players. The feature list on the Atom is huge, including internet radio streaming, tidal, spotify, chromecast, airplay, Roon ready, and even more. Setup on the unit is a breeze, being available on-screen or through Naim’s excellent ios/Android apps; all you need to do is add speakers and you’ve got great sound. The full-color screen is beautiful, showing the controls as well as the album art of what is playing. One of our favorite features of the Uniti Atom is its oversized aluminum volume knob on the top, which gives a great and unique tactile feel to the unit. With a great sounding Class A/B amplifier, the Naim Uniti Atom is a great sounding and looking heart to any Hi-Fi system. Available for $2995
