Sony NWZ-A17 64GB Review

Key features

Sony NWZ-A17 64GB is an MP3 player that aims to stand out of the crowd, by providing an ideal blend of storage space, design and features. Unlike most music players out there, this Sony device comes with the S-Master HX digital audio amplifier, which provides support for high-definition playback. This way, you can enjoy a rich bass and crystal clear highs without the fear of distortion. The CD frequency range is greatly overpassed by the one supported by the Sony NWZ-A17 64GB. High-res bit rates are supported, as well as extended frequencies, so you can enjoy only top quality audio. The DSEE HX feature of this MP3 Sony player bluetooth proves extremely useful if you have lower-quality audio files stored on the device. They can be upscaled to high-res quality so you can experience your favorite songs as you have never done it before.

Introduction

The Sony NWZ-A17 64GB is a minimalistic player which aims to satisfy all your needs when it comes to music. If you are one of those who enjoy listening to music on the way to work, then you are probably familiar with the issue of having your phone's battery discharging because of the music player. If you want a dedicated solution that allows your phone to be used for other purposes, then this MP3 player is the ideal device to have in your side pocket. Once you put it there, you will barely feel it anymore, but you will greatly enjoy its features. The battery life is more than decent, as the Sony NWZ-A17 64GB allows you to listen to high-res music for up to 30 hours. Classic MP3s will require less battery, so that you can expect up to 50 hours of battery lifetime in this case. The fast charging time should though be no issue.

What is the capacity ?

The capacity of the Sony NWZ-A17 64GB is 64 gigabytes, just as its title implies. Long gone are the days when the Sony 2GB MP3 player would rock the stage. Not even a Sony 16GB MP3 player does the trick these days, because we all like to gather as much music as possible, and we also want it encoded using top quality settings. If FLAC tracks are your thing, you will definitely enjoy the 64GB of memory available inside the MP3 player. However, if you ever feel like this is not enough, you just have to insert a micro SDXC card inside the player. Cards with a capacity of up to 128GB are supported, so you can be sure that your entire music library will fit on the device.

Conclusion: should I buy it ?

If you are interested in purchasing a high quality audio player that you can take anywhere you want to, then the Sony NWZ-A17 64GB is the ideal solution. The minimalistic but yet elegant design makes it a perfect accessory, regardless of your daily outfit, so that you can rock your favorite tracks with confidence. Moreover, the price is extremely good, so you can get quite the bang for the buck.
