If you're looking to integrate high-resolution computer audio into a stereo system but aren't sure where to begin, Sony has made it easy for you. Their HAP-S1 does it all. It's an integrated amplifier, a high-resolution digital music player, a 500GB storage device, a high-performance DAC, and an Internet radio tuner. All of that is packed into one compact, sturdy component that's easy to set up and use. All you need to add are speakers and your digital music collection.The HAP-S1 offers 500GB of on-board storage for storing and playing back high-resolution digital music files (Silver).Digital music has come a long way from the early days of iTunes and Napster. Low bitrate MP3s evolved into lossless formats with 16-bit/44.1 kHz resolution that are on an equal sonic footing with CDs. Even better, there's been an explosion of high-resolution files available for download on sites like HD Tracks and others. These files, with resolution up to 24-bit/192 kHz, exceed the sonic limitations of CDs. High-res tunes can make familiar songs sound new again while also showing off your equipment's potential. Not only does the HAP-S1 deliver high-res files in their native resolution, it also uses Sony's Digital Sound Enhancement Engine to fill out the sound of MP3s and other low-res file.

What's included in the box

  • Remote Control
  • Instruction Manual
  • Quick Start Guide
  • LAN Cable


  • Hi-Res Music Playback: The HAP-S1/S can playback and decode the following file formats: DSD (DSF,DSDIFF), PCM (44.1k/ 48k/ 88.2k/ 96k/ 176.4k/ 192kHz·16/ 24/ 32bit) DSD(2.8/ 5.6MHz), WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, ATRAC Advanced Lossless, ATRAC, MP3, AAC, WMA music file playback
  • 500GB Hard Drive for music playback: Store personal music of all formats for local music playback on the 500GB hard drive. Hard Drive is expandable via USB external hard drives
  • Analog FIR Filters: This digital-to-analog converter effectively reduces high-frequency noise in DSD signals. It features independent right and left channels, with four analog FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters per channel producing a combined one-clock delay. FIR filters are ideal for D/A conversion of DSD signals
  • Digital Sound Enhancement Engine: Offers natural sound with a spacious feel by restoring high frequency sound and the tail shape of the waveform likely to be removed through the audio compression process
  • WiFi Built-in: Newly designed built-in Wi-Fi increasing whole-house coverage and signal strength. HAP-S1/S is rigorously tested to ensure its Wi-Fi signal strength. This real world testing is to certify it will work under the most extreme conditions
  • HDD Audio Remote for iOS and Android phones and Tablets: A dedicated app to control your listening experience with the HAP-S1/S. Create playlists, search stored music and full track control
  • Expandable storage via USB: Connect external hard drives to expand the players storage capabilities
  • Music transfer software: Compatible with both Windows and Mac computers, this simple music transfer software allows you to select your music folder and sync it with the HAP-S1/S
  • Large Power Source Block Capacitor: This acoustically tuned, custom block capacitor features not only improved electrolytic solution and electrode foil magnification, but also superior case form, sleeve material and length. Only Sony utilizes this component, which is optimally tuned with chemical capacitor length and sleeve cut
  • Left-right separated, large bandwidth power amp: This AB-class analog amp utilizes an EBT (emitter balance transistor) with a cutoff frequency of over 300MHz for the final transistor. The amp device features minimal phase variation up to the high range and excellent transient response. Its twin mono format with separate left and right channels eliminates left-right sound interference and ensures clear, high-quality sound reproduction. The resilient high range reproduces sound with rich musicality and a high degree of faithfulness
  • High-Rigidity Chassis structure: Its all-in-one compact size and sturdy 3mm-thick solid aluminum design extends from front panel to top panel
  • One-point ground structure: Concentrating audio signal control points into a single point eliminates fluctuation of left- and right-channel, and contributes to dynamic sound
  • Power Source Transformer: A low iron-loss type EI core transformer curbs leakage flux, utilizing core material, varnish, and vacuum impregnation for superior sound quality. As a result, excellent spatial representation and rich resonant timbre is produced. is achieved as a result. The size (core size 45 x 66) is large for this class, and thick winding wire helps achieve rich, resonant timbre
