Walkman catches up to the future

The Sony Walkman has come a long way since Marty McFly used his to listen to rock music in the Back to the Future movie in 1985.

These days, the Walkman is not exactly a product from the future, but Sony has relaunched its iconic audio device with some serious upgrades.

The entry-level Walkman NW-A30 Series comes with support for DSD formats.

It is able to cut distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies and it has two clock oscillators that are switched to provide optimal modulation for the sampling frequencies of each content.

The new Walkman only weighs 98g, and has Bluetooth and NFC capabilities which mean you can connect wirelessly to your speakers.

Sony is obviously well aware that poor battery life is the bane of our existence, so commuters and joggers can enjoy 45 hours from a single charge, unless you are competing in some hellacious running contest or commute to the ends of the earth.

The Walkman is available in 16GB or 32GB.
