Sony‘s DMP-Z1 Digital Music Player is a $7,882 USD powerhouse that’s able to support all hi-res music formats and has a “audiophile-grade” headphone amp with a gold-plated volume dial. Sony ensures “sonic purity” with this device, as such, its analog rotary volume control enhances the performance of its dual Asahi DACs. Even its solder is copper and golden, to “enhance the signal flow.”

It has an independent power system with five battery cells powering the digital and analog sections separately, but it can be switched between battery and AC power instantly if you desire. The DMP-Z1 has 256GB of internal storage, two separate microSD slots, and can support Native DSD files up to 11.2MHz and 384 kHz PCM. It also has a USB-C connector for computers, a Bluetooth receiver, and 1,500mW of output power for headphones.

Grab this pricey East Asia-exclusive music player, check Sony Hong Kong’s webstore.
