40WPC Class AB Analog Amplifier and Tremendous Flexibility: Just Add Speakers and You Have a High-Res Digital System
It almost sounds too good to be true, but the Sony HAP-S1 superbly does everything it promises and then some. Bolstered by a large-bandwidth 40WPC Class AB amplifier and 500GB of hard-drive space for hi-res files, the Sony HAP-S1 effortlessly decodes DSD, PCM, and practically every other format under the sun. Built-in Wi-Fi, expandable storage via USB, a phenomenal DAC, dedicated app, and custom power-source block capacitor complement award-worthy build quality and the stylish design. Just add speakers and you’ve a high-res digital system at hand!
Broad Decoding Ability, Large Internal Hard Drive, Built-In WiFi
A master translator, the HAP-S1 removes any worry about file format compatibility from the high-res playback equation. It flawlessly decodes a veritable alphabet soup of files, including DSD, PCM (up to 24-bit/192k), MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, FLAC, ALAC, ATRAC, and AIFF. Equally versatile, an internal 500GB hard drive means you can store your hi-res files without worry. Easy connection to USB external drives allow you to expand the HAP-S1's storage when needed. Factor in the real-world-tested built-in WiFi, which affords simple audio transfer from your computer and permits whole-house coverage, and the HAP-S1 turns places you never thought you'd have high-res music into virtual concert halls.
Cutting-Edge DAC Abetted by FIR Filters and Sony's Proprietary DSEE
In addition to its state-of-the-art DAC, one of the secrets of the HAP-S1 resides in its four analog FIR filters per channel. Ideal for D/A conversation of DSD signals, they eliminate differences in phase response, enhance transparency, and reduce fatigue. And the Sony Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) lets you listen to music in the ways in which the artists and producers intended. DSEE presents music naturally and spatially by restoring the high-frequency range and tail shape of the waveform that often disappears during the compression process.
Class AB Analog Amp, High-End Parts Ensure Superior Sonic and Build Quality
Sony instilled the HAP-S1 with a substantial, left-right separated Class AB analog amp that utilizes an emitter balance transistor (EBT) with a cutoff frequency of more than 300MHz. It provides excellent transient response, clear tonalities, and a resilient range notable for true sonic faithfulness and rich musicality. A large, acoustically tuned power-source block capacitor features superior case form, sleeve material, and electrode foil magnification. The HAP-S1's one-point ground structure further contributes to the overall performance by eliminating the fluctuation of the left and right channels, resulting in enhanced dynamics.
