Available in a range of colors The NW-A40 Series comes in a range of unique colors, designed to fit seamlessly with your style and your life.

High-Resolution Audio for uncompromising sound Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher-than-CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you.

S-Master HX delivers High-Resolution Audio in maximum quality Optimized for High-Resolution Audio, the S-Master HX amplifier reduces distortion and noise, allowing you to enjoy all the subtleties in your music.

DSD playback Experience the natural sound and intense detail of DSD audio formats. This is the preferred recording format of many top producers and engineers, and you can enjoy it using the NW-A40 Series' high-quality PCM conversion.

Restore all your compressed files The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX ) upscales compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC, and WMA) and brings them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the high-range sound lost in compression, DSEE HX reproduces your digital music files with rich, natural sound.

New solder maximizes clarity The precision-engineered components of the NW-A40 Series include high-quality, lead-free solder on the circuit board. This improved solder is also used on the S-master HX (CXD-3778GF) chip, resulting in a more efficient electronic connection. Every time you press play, you can enjoy purer audio playback with enhanced vocal clarity.

New circuit board for pure, solid bass The optimized circuit board of the NW-A40 Series improves electricity flow. The layout from the battery to the audio block minimizes the power loop, making the power supply stable. The result is clearer sound and pure, solid bass that comes through in every track.

LDAC : for the transmission of High-Resolution Audio content Enjoy your music in higher-than-CD quality with LDAC wireless audio transmission. LDAC uses a conventional BLUETOOTH® connection, but transfers at a maximum data transfer rate up to 990 kbps-approximately three times that of other audio profiles. The result is enhanced wireless listening that's much closer to the artist's intention.

Digital noise cancelation for fewer distractions When used with compatible IER-NW500N headphones, the NW-A40 Series' digital noise cancelation reduces the ambient noise you would normally hear from your surroundings. Microphones built into the headphones work with the digital noise cancelation engine to cut out unwanted sound.

Ambient Sound Mode keeps you aware Listening to music but still want to hear the outside world" When you're using the compatible IER-NW500N headphones, select Ambient Sound Mode and the NW-A40 Series will let in external sounds to keep you aware of your surroundings.

Plays and decodes MQA music files The NW-A40 Series is fully compatible with MQA files, so you can play even more lossless-quality music.

USB DAC function makes music played from your computer sound even better Use your NW-A40 Series as a USB DAC (Digital-Analog Converter) by pairing it with a PC, Mac computer, or with a PC or Mac computer. When connected and activated using the supplied USB cable, the NW-A40 Series replaces your computer's regular sound processing with its own highly tuned processing hardware. Whether you're at home or in the office, in a coffee shop or commuting, you can enjoy premium sound quality.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
