Sony’s indomitable Walkman is making comeback at CES 2015 – and from concept to design to price, there’s only one word to describe it: uncompromising. The Walkman ZX2 is unapologetically niche – a $1,200 media player dedicated to providing the very best sound quality on the market. The ZX2 supports a wide range of lossless file formats, including FLAC, WAV and Apple Lossless, allowing it to play the kind of high quality files prized by audiophiles. And with 128GB of built-in storage that’s expandable via the microSD slot, the ZX2 makes it easy to get your entire library of music on board. Support for Bluetooth streaming and one-touch NFC connection to speakers and headphones are also included within the Walkman’s handsome black casing. While the new ZX2 does run Android (4.2 Jellybean) and has the ability to download apps through the Google Play store, it’s not meant to be an all-in-one device – Sony’s new Walkman is strictly about the music. Look for the Walkman ZX2 to go on sale this spring.
