    Vinyl lives forever in High–Resolution Audio

    The PS–HX500 is equipped with a high–quality A/D converter. So just connect it to your PC with a USB cable and record your vinyl as High–Resolution Audio tracks (up to DSD 5.6 MHz or PCM 192 kHz/24 bit quality).

Enjoy the smooth, natural, warm sound of analog masterpieces with all the quality they deserve, anywhere you are.

    DSD (Direct Stream Digital)

    Co–developed for High–Resolution Audio by Sony and Philips, the companies behind the original CD format, DSD (Direct Stream Digital) offers a revolutionary way of capturing and playing back audio. Unlike the conventional PCM format, a 1–bit DSD audio stream more closely represents the nature of an analog audio waveform. The result is all the advantages of digital audio, including a frequency response in excess of 100 kHz, and ample dynamic range, but with the natural sound of an analog recording. The far less complex capture and decoding process results in audio with an immense sense of space and ultimate representation of an artist's original vision.

    Newly Designed Integrated Shell Type Tonearm

    The tonearm's integrated shell design improves durability and stabilizes the cartridge to deliver superior focusing and dimensionality of sound. The shell's lightweight structure helps to optimize the lowest resonance frequency and improve traceability of low frequencies, while its rounded shape helps deliver pure sound untainted by sound characterization. The straight tonearm precisely balances the stylus, with no arm torque to affect stereo balance, and its slackless lateral bearing structure minimizes wow and flutter distortion.
