    • NW-WM1AM2 and NW-WM1ZM2: These Walkmans support High-Resolution playback over a wireless connection with devices that support LDAC. To play audio in High-Resolution format, connect an LDAC supported device to the Walkman via Bluetooth.
    • NW-A100 and NW-ZX500 Series: These Walkmans do not support High-Resolution audio over a wireless connection. To play audio in High-Resolution format, you need to update the Walkman to Version 2.0.0 (or later) and use the following settings and connection:
      • Open the Settings menu, select Sound, and set High-Res streaming to ON.
      • Use headphones or speakers that support High-Resolution and make a wired connection to the Walkman.
