Sony Walkman NWZ-S540
Sony Singapore expands its Walkman® video MP3 player family with the new NWZ-S540 and the NWZ-E440 series – promising superior audio and visual entertainment on-the-go with enhanced Sony audio technologies.
The NWZ-S540 series integrates Sony’s new and exclusive Digital Linear Phase Speaker System in its slim and compact frame. Combined with its larger 2.4-inch LCD screen, the NWZ-S540 player allows users to share their favourite music effortlessly with friends and family. Promising a rich audio experience for audiophiles, the NWZ-E440 series is an affordable music player that features an extended battery life for longer music and video playback. The new E series also comes with a speaker cradle that integrates the same Digital Linear Phase Speaker System as the NWZ-S540.
The Digital Linear Phase Speaker System is developed by Sony to enhance sound quality from stereo speakers. The advanced audio technology allows for natural sound reproduction and powerful bass sounds to be amplified in a compact body. With superior sound quality brought about by the stereo speakers, the new Walkman® S540 series and E440 series provide exceptional audio experiences for users who enjoy music on-the-go. Combined with Sony’s unique Clear Audio Technology with Clear Stereo and Clear Bass the new Walkman players deliver excellent audio experience with crisper, cleaner sounds.
Both Walkman® series feature an extended battery life, with up to 42 hours of music playback and 6.5 hours of video playback on the NWZ-S540, and up to 30 hours of music playback and 6 hours of video playback on the NWZ-E440. Furthermore, the large 2.4-inch high resolution (240 x 320) QVGA LCD screen will prove gratifying for users who like to catch the latest music videos on-the-go with the NWZ-S540. Weighing in at a featherweight 54g, the NWZ-E440 series also features a 2.0-inch LCD screen.
Sony Walkman NWZ-E440
For users who like to wake up to their favourite tunes every morning, the new Walkman® S540 and E440 series feature the new Alarm function which allows for users to set a daily ‘wake-up call’. A timer function switches off the Walkman® within a set time, which helps to preserve battery life and enable longer hours of audio enjoyment.
Also incorporated are voice and FM recording and multiple codec support for convenient music and video playback. In addition, the included Content Transfer software easily transfers files such as music, movies and photos from Windows Explorer, iTunes® or even Cyber-shot cameras to the Walkman® with its simple drag-and-drop interface. The NWZ-S540 series is bundled with a convenient stand, making it easy to prop up the player instead of holding it when watching videos or recording lectures.
