Product No.:

Hi Res Audio Player

Hi-Res Music Playback
The HAP-S1 can decode the following file formats: DSD (DSF,DSDIFF), PCM (44.1k/48k/88.2k/96k/176.4k/192kHz/24 bit); MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, FLAC, ALAC, ATRAC, ATRAC ADVANCED LOSSLESS, AIFF.

500GB Hard Drive for music playback
Store music of all Hi-Res formats for local music playback on the 500GB hard drive. Storage space is expandable via USB external hard drives.

Analog FIR Filters
This digital-to-analog converter effectively reduces high-frequency noise in DSD signals. It features independent right and left channels, with four analog FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters per channel producing a combined one-clock delay. FIR filters are ideal for D/A conversion of DSD signals.

Digital Sound Enhancement Engine
Offers natural sound with a spacious feel by restoring high frequency sound and
the tail shape of the waveform likely to
be removed through the audio compression process.

Wi-Fi Built-in
Newly designed built-in Wi-Fi increasing whole-house coverage and signal strength. HAP-S1 is rigorously tested to ensure its Wi-Fi signal strength. This real world testing is to certify it will work under the most extreme conditions.

“HDD Audio Remote” for iOS and Android phones/Tablets
A dedicated app to control your listening experience with the HAP-S1. Create playlists, search stored music and full track control.

CD Ripping

Please be advised that Sony has released new firmware version 16152R for HAPZ1ES and HAPS1

This firmware update permits CD ripping to WAV or FLAC file formats using a CD drive that connects through USB, without the need for a computer.

Please note that we recommend that the CD drive be powered via AC as the power output of the USB port is limited.

Drives that have been tested include:

-          Apple USB Super Drive MD564ZM/A

-          Buffalo BRXL-16U3

-          Samsung SE-208GB/RSBD

-          LG GP50NB40

Additionally the update adds compatibility with Gracenote (music metadata) for DSD files.

The update may be installed by connecting the player to the Internet and updating the software through the product’s menu.

A sweet little rig - especially with the matching speakers

I have this driving the matching SS-HA1 speakers (on stands). 35 wpc may not sound like much but it drives the speakers to levels beyond my tolerance.

I have to say I've completely delighted and more than satisfied with this combination. The operating software was much easier to install and operate on my laptop and cell phone than I feared and has been relatively trouble-fear. The few problems I've seen are largely the fault of my laptop or home ethernet network.

Fit-and-finish is excellent and the sound quality with hi-res and ripped CDs is beyond my expectations.

i'm very happy that Sony is back in the quality audio game once again. Their top-flight engineering and sense of taste and proportion has been missed.
