Forget the iPod nano. Sony aims to satisfy the most demanding audiophile or video junkie with its new NW-A800 series Walkman. Weighing about 53 grams, the slim video/MP3 player measures 44mm x 88mm x 9mm and has a two-inch colour screen. Sony has integrated its Clear Audio technologies to prevent the audio signal leaking from one channel to another and to enhance bass without distortion. The NW-A800 also touts a five-band equaliser system and 'virtual phone technology', a process that converts playback music to include 3D acoustic effects. The player runs Sony's proprietary video conversion software, so users can convert and transfer popular formats such as MPEG-2, QuickTime and WMV into MPEG-4 or AVC baseline profile formats for playback. Available in three storage capacities, the NW-A800 player is priced at HK$2,188 (eight gigabytes), HK$1,828 (4GB) and HK$1,388 (2GB).
