Sony Electronics unveiled a new reference quality turntable which has been strategically designed to expand the company’s range of premium Hi-Res Audio products. The PS-HX500 is targeted for music enthusiasts who collect and enjoy LP recordings and provides them with unprecedented flexibility and performance, as well as a number of other key benefits.
The HX500 is the first turntable to combine Sony state-of-the-art digital technology with a new advanced design. Its built-in A/D converter supports hi-res digital transfers in either native DSD (up to 5.6 MHz) or WAV files (up to 192 KHz/24-bit resolution). This enables users to digitally store their favorite music from vinyl recordings and play them for personal use on virtually any compatible Hi-Res Audio device.
“Sony is dedicated to providing audiophiles and music enthusiasts alike with a wide range of hi-res audio solutions that can meet virtually every lifestyle need,” said Yamato (Tank) Tanikawa, Director, Home Entertainment & Sound, Sony Electronics. “Our new PS-HX500 turntable serves as an important bridge that connects the growing number of vinyl record collectors to the convenience and sound quality afforded by hi-res audio.”
