Our take on the Sony XA-50WM

by Ken Nail

Sony's XA-50WM adapter lets you plug your Walkman player into the Tune Tray of your Sony DSX-Series digital media receiver. The adapter has a USB connector on one end and a Sony Walkman connector on the other, and it works with X- or S-Series Walkman players. Once connected, you'll be able to control basic playback features of your Walkman, and your player will charge up as well.
