    HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO COMPATIBLE
    Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher-than-CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you.

    HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO WIRELESS
    Enjoy High-Resolution Audio quality music streaming thanks to LDAC, our premium wireless codec. With 3x the bitrate of standard BLUETOOTH technology, you can enjoy a superior listening experience for all your music.

    DSD PLAYBACK
    Experience the natural sound and intense detail of DSD audio formats up to 11.2MHz, thanks to the NW-A100's high-quality PCM conversion.

    S-MASTER HX DELIVERS HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO IN MAXIMUM QUALITY
    Enjoy all the subtleties in your music with the S-Master HX digital amplifier, which delivers High-Resolution Audio in maximum quality, with reduced distortion and noise.

    DSEE HX
    Audio upscaling is improved even further by our DSEE HX processor which intelligently recognises instruments, voices and musical genres. By identifying these, and the relative energy of the audio, it can accurately rebuild audio lost during digital compression, for a full fidelity experience, even with compressed formats. The DSEE HX processor still works even when you're streaming music.

    NFC ONE-TOUCH AND BLUETOOTH FOR INSTANT CONNECTIVITY
    Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth technology make connecting to your music fast and easy. Just touch your NFC-enabled device to your NW-A100 for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming. No NFC? No problem. Connect via Bluetooth and you're ready to go. LDAC and aptX HD audio compatibility is available.

    RIGID ALUMINIUM MILLED FRAME FOR IMPROVED SOUND QUALITY
    The premium aluminium milled frame provides superior rigidity for low impedance and clear, stable sound and solid bass.

    FILM CAPACITOR
    High-quality film capacitors are used in the amplification stage to help the NW-A100 realise transparent, expansive highs and natural sound.

    FINE SOUND RESISTOR
    The surface mounted Fine Sound Resistor ensures even, effective distribution of power to the circuit components, for consistent sound quality.

    OPTIMISED CIRCUIT BOARD LAYOUT
    By dividing the Audio block (highlighted in red) and the Power/Digital block (in blue), the circuit board layout has been optimised to ensure sound quality is unaffected by digital noise.

    ADVANCED SOLDER CONTAINING GOLD FOR CLEARER SOUND
    The exceptional conductivity of gold ensures absolute minimum signal loss. For clearer sound and vocals, a premium, audio-grade lead-free solder with a small amount of gold connects the circuit of the NW-A100 to the battery.

    SUPPORTED BY ANDROID
    The NW-A100 is supported by Android, giving you easy access to a huge range of media apps and music services.
