Lose the PC, Not the Quality

Time to simplify. Your PC music system has served you well, but even a fully loaded rig has its limitations. If you’re looking for something to either transform or simply supplement the way you enjoy your music, the Sony HAP-S1 system provides an aesthetically appealing, easy-to-use solution. It’s multi-codec capability make it compatible with nearly any digital music collection. Wirelessly transfer music to the internal storage or attach an external HDD and easily browse through your whole collection! Plus, it’s not just a digital storage and source player, it’s an integrated amp with enough power to drive nearly any efficient speakers or headphones!

PC Audio, Sans PC

With the increasing involvement of computers in our lives, it only makes sense that the way we enjoy music would also transition to a personal-computing arena. The greatest detraction of that transition, however, is appearances. There is a cold, clean, minimalist beauty to traditional audio equipment, and that has been mostly left behind for computer-based music enthusiasts. With the HAP system, Sony answers the call with a streamlined, discreet, all-in-one, self contained system that syncs with your existing music collection. 

The Right Music in the Right Place, Always

The intuitive GUI brings your entire collection into one browsing space, leaving behind the complex file paths computer listeners have had to grow accustomed to. An app available for iOS and Android brings the controls to your fingertips with the same, easy-to-navigate menus as the player itself. 

HDD and NAS Based Player

While this piece is a wonderful solution for all-in-one storage, source, and amplification, it has its limitations. The onboard Wi-Fi is only for connecting the device with your computer, and does not give streaming capability. There is also no Bluetooth or AirPlay capability yet. This piece is best used as an attractive, self-contained alternative to traditional computer listening.
