Sony NW-A45 Walkman®

High-resolution portable digital music player with Bluetooth® and FM tuner (Black)

High-res audio entertainment

With the Sony NW-A45 Walkman you've got choices. Enjoy high-res music files, such as those you can download from sites like HDtracks. There's also a built-in FM radio, so you can listen to your favorite station or catch the big game. Use the ‘A45's built-in Bluetooth to stream to a set of wireless headphones. You can even use the ‘A45 as an external DAC (digital audio converter) for your computer to make its music sound even better.

The NW-A45's compact size makes it easy to take anywhere (headphones not included).

Support for high-resolution audio files

The NW-A45 is compatible with high-res PCM-based files (up to 24-bit/192kHz), DSD (Direct Stream Digital) files, Apple Lossless, and other formats. For low-resolution files, such as MP3s, The player is also MQA-compatible.

Sony's Digital Sound Enhancement Engine can help them sound fuller. The built-in rechargeable battery can deliver up to 45 hours of operation, so you can enjoy music all day and then some.

High-res Bluetooth streaming

This player also has built-in Bluetooth for wireless music streaming. On top of that, it features Sony's LDAC technology, which allows the wireless signal to retain more musical detail with compatible Sony speakers and headphones. We recommend pairing this player with Sony's best Bluetooth headphones — the WH-1000XM3 wireless noise-cancelers — for a super-sounding portable listening rig. 

Storage for high-res files

The 'A45 features 16GB of built-in storage. If you need more memory, the player's microSD card slot can accommodate up to a 128GB card. That gives you up to 144GB of storage, plenty for high-resolution files as well as CD-quality audio files. And of course, you can carry extra cards with you for an even bigger music library.
