Sony HAP-S1 500GB Hi-Res Music Player System

Hear music as it was intended. With a Class AB amplifier, this Hi-Res system also boasts up to 500GB of hard drive space, support for DSD and the full range of Hi-Res file formats, and built-in Wi-Fi for transferring audio from your PC. Just add speakers.

Hi-Res Music Playback

The HAP-S1 can decode the following file formats: DSD (DSF,DSDIFF), PCM (44.1k/48k/88.2k/96k/176.4k/192kHz/24 bit); MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, FLAC, ALAC, ATRAC, ATRAC ADVANCED LOSSLESS, AIFF.

500GB Hard Drive for music playback

Store music of all Hi-Res formats for local music playback on the 500GB hard drive. Storage space 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.

Wi-Fi Built-in

Built-in Wi-Fi increasing whole-house coverage and signal strength. HAP-S1 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.

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.

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.

4 out of 5 stars   Sony HAP-S1 Hi-Resolution Digital Player
By Greg (Redondo Beach, CA) May 15, 2017
Review submitted for Sony HAP-S1/B 500GB HDD Hi-Resolution Silver Music Player System (SNHAPS1S)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Plays back almost any type of file, FLAC, WAV, MP3 at high resolution 96K 24 bits and higher Interface is very nice and easy to use. Very fast and responsive. Easy to locate songs by artist, title, file name. Plug in a USB flash drive for easy access to music files, easier than copying to the internal hard drive, which I did not try. The smartphone app controller works very well and has most of the functionality of the main unit. Tune-In internet radio makes finding stations easy by genre or station name Built in power amplifier has enough power for most modern efficient speakers The direct output jacks can be connected to an external amplifier for more power and greater fidelity. The built-in DAC is quite good, BB PCM1795. Can connect an external USB DAC also, which I did not try. Built-in Wi-Fi for listening to streaming internet radio.
Cons: The unit I received was defective, the right channel was louder than the left channel, especially noticeable when listening through headphones. The unit has no stereo balance control to fix this. So I returned it for a refund. Beach Camera paid for return shipment and provided a full refund. Excellent customer service. While the overall sound quality is very good, I found the lower frequencies to be somewhat lacking. There are bass and treble settings, but did not seem to boost the lowest frequencies, only the mid-bass. The smartphone app seems to be missing one important control: Volume. It has everything else, so why couldn't they include that?
