Precision-engineered for superior sound quality, a rigid aluminium milled frame, and high-quality audio parts found in the ZX series and NW-WM1Z are applied to the A100 series Walkman®, so there is no more picking between sound quality and style.
Supported by Android™ with Wi-Fi, the A100 series Walkman® grants you access to millions of songs at your fingertips.

Plus, one can also access download services directly from the Walkman® and store one’s favourite tracks on the device’s built-in or expandable memory, perfect for journeys with no Wi-Fi connection.

There are 5 bold colour designs available for the A100 series Walkman®. Stand out from the crowd by picking from red, black, ash green, blue or orange. One can mix and match the headphones and Walkman® to showcase one’s style to the world.
Take a trip down memory lane with the 40th-anniversary edition, NW-A100TPS Walkman®. The NW-A100TPS Walkman® has a printed 40th-anniversary logo on the rear panel and comes with a specially designed soft case and package that is inspired and pays homage to Sony’s first portable cassette player – TPS-L2 Walkman®. Launched back on 1st July 1979, it revolutionised the way that people listened to music on the go, giving them the freedom to enjoy their favourite music wherever they went. Not everything was better back then, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds with the heritage design of the Walkman®, whilst having cutting edge technology at one’s fingertips. The A100 series Walkman® also features a special cassette tape user interface and screensaver that takes inspiration from classic Walkman® models.

I think that’s pretty expensive for the entry level DAP, I should buy Astell and Kern for much better quality. Sony is known for bad after Sales support.
