Redeveloped digital section
The digital section enables all signal processing to be performed on a single chip while also providing lower impedance, increased capacitance, and better stability.
Redeveloped digital section
DAC enables 32-bit operations
Digital PCM signal input is processed at 32-bit and converted to analog by the DAC, while DSD signal input during direct mode is natively input to the DAC and converted to an analog signal.
DAC enables 32-bit operations
Improved analog power for DAC
The DAC analog power supply uses a low- noise power supply IC to ensure that hi-fidelity performance is achieved
Buffer amp for DAC
DAC analog output filter circuit was designed utilizing a JFET and op-amp improvement in noise floor. The phase rotation was shifted to a higher frequency, expanding the bandwidth and improving sound clarity for wide-bandwidth sources like high-resolution audio.

Newly Designed Frame Beam Base Chassis
The chassis of the ES model has been fundamentally revised: the overall thickness has been increased for improved rigidity, and the structures of the transformer base and other weight-bearing parts have also been redesigned to improve the instantaneous power and crispness of the sound, when compared to a conventional chassis.
Newly Designed Frame Beam Base Chassis
Offset Screw Position Foot
Designed with an offset screw position to both eliminate the resonance point and avoid frequency-specific, vibration-inducing resonance transmission to and from the transformer, the foot also contains additional ribs for increased rigidity and improved resonance control.
Offset Screw Position Foot
Refreshed Digital Circuit Board
Metal ES-grade frames both secure the circuit board and protect it from vibration caused by speaker sound pressure. The varying fin length of the integrated heat sink reduces audible resonance uniformity while also shielding delicate circuitry from noise.
Refreshed Digital Circuit Board
Lead free ES solder
Applying years of sound engineering and testing experience, Sony has developed an ES-grade solder. A high-purity tin base combines with small amounts of specially chosen metal elements for a unique alloy mix that enables a quality signal and exceptional sound.

Updated Heat Sink.
A more uniform shape applied to the heat sink enables the amplifier circuit to withstand unwanted vibration. The heat sink bracket also shields the digital circuit from radiation, for sound quality that has more stability and clarity.
New Capacitor for High Power
In order to increase the power, a new block capacitor was developed and the design of the power amplifier has changed. Based on our long experience in the development of sound quality capacitors, we also emphasized the selection of materials and manufacturing methods to create a component that satisfies us in terms of sound quality.
New Capacitor for High Power
New large-capacity power transformer
In order to achieve high sound quality in the large power transformer, the core material of the power transformer has been re-selected to achieve high sound quality.
