    SONY offers two excellent products in the player category.

    HAP-Z1 ES
    The SONY HAP-Z1 ES is a new product in a new category for SONY. It's quite clear, the trend in home music is the integrated digital player, that stores, organizes, and plays your music library from a Smart Phone or tablet. Enter the HAPZ1-ES. It does all of these things, but with a level of performance that is difficult to match with price competitive separates. When you price out all that's included - the SONY HAPZ1-ES offers the buyer an easy to use, refined and class leading performing, digital music player. Couple the HAP-Z1 ES with the matching SONY TA-1 ES integrated amplifier, and you've got a complete audio solution that has few rivals in its price class.

The key advantage is that you've got volume control at your fingertips from your smartphone or tablet. The HAP-S1 gives up the larger drive and higher quality DAC's of the HAP-Z1, but delivers a terrific value in a single box - digital music player solution.

  • PIONEER

    PIONEER fields two models. The N-50 and N-30.

    PIONEER
    N-50 has integrated AirPlay capability, so using it from an iPhone, iPad or iPod, makes for one easy to use solution, for everyone in the home. The Sound Retriever™ is PIONEER's proprietary software which takes compressed files and enhances them to "virtually CD quality" (their words). We believe the Sound Retriever™ does a good job at upconverting downsampled music. CD quality? No. High resolution sound? No. But let's be realistic, at the price, the feature set and the sound quality it delivers is outstanding. Again, a good quality DAC makes for great sound in a very well made component.
    $699

    PIONEER
    N-30 is similar to the N-50. with the essential difference being lacking the Sound Retriever, single transformer, and no USB input. It features a LAN, SPIDF and TosLink inputs. The perfect digital source and player for those looking for a player for non-critical listening areas like an office or dining room.
    $499

    Both players feature:
    192kHz / 32-bit Asynchronous USB digital audio conversion (DAC)
    AirPlay® Compatible
    Network-capable for Internet Radio and DLNA support
    iPhone or Android Control Application
    2.5” Full-Color LCD Display
