Sony, a leader in the pursuit of the highest quality sound, and Qobuz, Europe’s first Hi-Res music download platform, have come together to provide High-Resolution music albums to Sony customers. High-Resolution Audio brings you closer to the spirit and soul of the artist’s original performance – just as you’d hear it on stage or in the recording studio. This studio quality sound is available on more Sony products than ever before and now selected models will come with a voucher for Qobuz music downloads of up to €200. Following the European expansion of Qobuz to a further eight countries[i], the download platform provides Sony customers with Hi-Res content at the tip of their fingers whether they’re at home or on the move.

As part of the promotion the NWZ-A15 will come with a €25 voucher for Sony customers to download music of their choice in Hi-Res from www.qobuz.com
